Boston Baked Beans
Another hit from the Ferrara Pan Company, introduced in the 1930s, Boston Baked Beans are peanuts coated with a mollasses-flavored candy coating. Whoever thought of candy mimicking baked beans was very…creative.
Dots! Paper strips with pastel candy dots on them. No matter how carefully you pried them off, there was always a bit of paper still attached. Candy buttons are now made by Necco company.
Candy Cigarettes, can you imagine?! Now called candy sticks, these relics from the 1950s are still on the market, and are still the red-tipped, white chalky stick with a unique taste. Many kids weren’t so crazy about the flavor, but pretending to be grown-up was the draw there. Trainer cigarettes, ew.
These old time nostalgic candy favorites from the 1950s, originally made by Flipsticks, are comprised of cherry roll with a foil wrapper. Today’s product is somewhat different then the originals, now they are a softer chewy candy similar to a taffy. This candy was super popular with girls in the 1950s, candy and make-up rolled up in one, genius!
First introduced in 1949, Jr. Mints are a favorite retro candy with their creamy cool mint center covered with a rich milk chocolate. Junior mints are the only mints of its kind.
