Pick and Mix and Retro Sweets

I  just found that a shop in my town known as tony’s features a devoted Retro sweets section. Pictured on this shelf are Life Savers, Necco wafers, Fruit Stripe gum, Pop Rocks, and Cinnamon toothpicks.

I utilized to adore Gold Mine bubble gum. The pieces of chewing gum resembled small gold nuggets freshly panned from a river. Following they had been all gone, I’d maintain the miniature gunny sacks and use them to hold army males, coins, various kinds of candy, and all types of other stuff that a ten year old boy tends to carry about. Wax Lips nonetheless seem to become well-liked to this day, because the show box was almost empty.19

Hot Tamales and Mike & Ike candies Hot Tamales and Mike & Ike are both made by the “Just Born” sweets company. I probably ate my weight in these things during the 70′s and 80′s. Depicted on the retro sweets boxes above are the original 50′s box art. The design I remember most as a kid however, was the Hot Tamale box with the small Mexican boy recognized as “The Hot Tamale kid”. If I’m not mistaken, they even had merchandising in the form of toys or dolls of “The Kid”. I believe I read somewhere that this design much like the Frito Bandito was deemed as being politically incorrect, and therefore was discontinued. Just Born also had several other versions of sweets that looked similar to Hot Tamales, only in various colors and flavors. For instance, one variety was known as “Cool Kids”, a green colored spearmint sweetsthat featured Eskimo children on the box art. Another was “Jolly Joes”, which had been purple in color, and featured a clown playing a banjo on the boxes. Then you had “Root-T-Toot”, a Root Beer flavored sweetswith a cute looking tug boat character that graced the boxes. Finally.. there was “Jack and Jill” Just Born’s answer to Hershey’s “Good and Plenty” licorice candy. 28 Tootsie Roll banksIt’s nice to see Tootsie Roll banks nonetheless available following all of these years.
