Sweet Guilt Trip

20 Sep

While you may not be able to buy a 5 cent candy from the corner store, there are still some ways for your taste buds to celebrate the nostalgia of an earlier decade. Items like salt water taffy, lemon drops, fudge, caramel, or the alluring bright red wax lips create that warm and fuzzy feeling of being a child again.

Many local vintage stores may carry a variety of candies, as well as online, and even larger chain stores (I’ve even seen some options at World Market). I would highly support the small-time local stores for these finds!
