Storekeepers Surprise (2 lb. Bag)
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!

Mychildhood memories are back
What fun. I ordered 2 bags. When it came I opened one and dumped it on the kitchen table. Kit Kats were always my favorite. It only cost a penny back in the 1950's. Still as delicious as ever.
I am having my 75th birthday in Sept. For party favors I will give white mugs filled with these goodies. I can hear the comments now. What a great thank you for coming gift for my guests.
I am a regular customer and now I have added this to my favorites.

Very Happy with Purchase
I ordered the Store Keepers Surprise, BB Bats, Kitts and Banana Splits. I am very happy with my purchase. The candy tastes as good as it did 50 years ago and it takes me back to my childhood. My gentleman friend is enjoying it as well. We are both seniors.

Old Fashion Penny Candies
While the selection of the storekeepers candies was nice, and I can remember them from my childhood, I cannot give it a high rating. The hard candies are excellent, although in practically nil variety, but the other candies, the Walnettos, Mary Janes, Kits, BB-Bats, Bit-O-Honey, & others, are supposed to be rather soft and chewy, but they are hard and not chewy at all. I discovered that putting them in the microwave for 10 seconds softens them up, but then you have to deal with getting the wrappers off, and why should we need to go through all that?

Fun in a brown paper sack
This proved a real hit with my grandchildren, who liked the chewy, crunchy contrast and the different shapes.

second one was awesome....I was surprised by the storekeeper
When I first got the bag I was so disappointed that I sent it back. Surprise...they read my letter that I sent with the return and shipped me a new bag. Their letter apologized and agreed with me that it was a disappointment. The bag they sent this time did have a nice assortment of old time childhood candies that trigger memories of days gone by when you put them in your mouth. They made note that they were now going to make some changes in the storekeeper's surprise so customers should not be disappointed again. Yes I would recommend the revised surprise now. It was a good variety and assortment.
