Storekeepers Surprise (2 lb. Bag)
I was so looking forward to 2 pounds of mixed candy that would remind me of going to the candy store as a child with a nickel and coming home with a whole bag of candy. I had looked at the catalog and there were so many kinds of candy from my childhood that I wanted to try, this seemed like the perfect solution. I counted approximately 27 different kinds of wrapped candy in your catalog, I was expecting at least 15-20 different kinds in the package. I got 117 pieces of candy bit only 8 different kinds including 31 chocolate mints, 20 Mary Jane's, 20 bulls eyes, and 21 Bit O Honey's. I could easily buy these four candies at my local store for considerably less money. The other 25 pieces in my bags were 10 honey, 6 kits, 8 Italian, and one Walnetto. I expected my surprise to be many different delights from the childhood but instead my surprise was disappointment at the lack of variety. I won't be buying this again.

I surprised my siblings to a Christmas from our past by setting up our Grandmother's old tinsel tree and color wheel, our mother's old nativity scene and our old stockings, old time retro toys and your old time candy.
I thought you did a wonderful job picking out a variety of old candy for us. It was wonderful! My siblings LOVED the idea and I was able to purchase many ideas from your site. Thanks for the memories!!!

Not evenly distributed
This was a good purchase for the holiday season. The only suggestion I have would be to evenly distribute the candies. I had too many hard candies and not enough Mary Janes, Bit O' Honey, Walnettos, etc.

Christmas presents as an extra
I purchased these for Christmas presents and enjoyed some at our house as well. All the feedback I received from family and friends was really positive -- these candies brought back some real good memories of what candies they enjoyed when they were young. Definitely a hit and I will repeat this next year!!

Bag shown with ribbon was only a picture. It just came in a brown bag. Would have thought at this time of year the grab bag would have been of Christmas varsity candy and not stale old candy.

A fun selection of nostalgic candies
I really enjoyed the surprise factor and the selection of candies in this storekeepers bag. It was well worth the price.
I did have a few of the candies (nougats mainly) that were squashed, but most were edible.

Sometimes a good purchase sometimes not.
I have usually loved this item and order it every time. This time will be my last time. It loved the huge variety of candy. The only thing I can say about it this time is that if I had wanted 3/4 of a bag of those little tiny candies I would have ordered them.

Candy is dandy --
The two-pound bag of candy proved to be a most welcome treat for my friend on his birthday! He was introduced to some delicious treats from America's past. It was so good, he told me, he sat down and ate it all in one sitting! Don't know if I would recommend that to anyone, but it proved to be a hearty treat on a most special day!
