Jellybeans—there are so many delicious flavors!

They are also a great reminder of Easter time, as they’re a staple in many Easter baskets! Who doesn’t love remembering holidays as a kid?

Tootsie Pops

Was the first thing that came to your head, “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?” Ours too. While not only does this remind us of commercials from our past, but it brings back sweet memories of eating this treat and trying to be the lucky one to find the winning answer.

Rock Candy

Whether you bought rock candy from the store or made it at home following a recipe, it was still the tastiest treat of them all! This sugary goodness not only looks beautiful but tastes wonderful too. Don’t deny that eating this again wouldn’t instantly bring you back to the wonderful years of being so completely content with having a rock candy in your hand.


Not only was it a toy, but it was candy too! How absolutely amazing is that? Not only could you pick out your favorite television character or Disney princess, but you could keep the plastic structure even after you had eaten all your candy. Purchasing this candy now would most definitely make you feel like a kid again!

Now that your sweet tooth is acting up, you are probably wondering how in the world you grew up so fast! These flashbacks of the different candies that will remind you of your childhood will do that to you. It’s okay to reminisce, and it’s also okay to let your sweet tooth win every now and then!
