Old Time Deliciousness

Posted November 20 2012


Valomilks were first created in 1931 when a candy maker mistakenly added too much vanilla extract to a batch of marshmallows. The end result was a semi-liquid mixture trapped inside milk-chocolate cups.. Inside the retro packaging you'll find vanilla, marshmallow and milk chocolate.

Necco Wafers are a candy wafer that goes back to 1847 and are considered by Necco to be its core product. During World War II the U.S. government ordered Necco to produce its wafers for soldiers overseas. Upon returning home, many former soldiers became faithful customers who continued to buy the wafers. Necco wafers come in a rainbow of colors, but we only carry the chocolate ones.

If you are old enough - you'll remember enjoying these little gems - Nik-L-Nip. Created in the early 20th century by a division of Tootsie Roll the Nik-L-Nip packaging suggests Bite'em, Drink'em, Chew'em and that's the best way to enjoy them.

A dentist's delight - Astro Pops were first made in 1963 after two ‘Rocket Scientists’ working on the space program in El Segundo, Ca decided to quit their jobs and create the Astro Pop®, modeling the pop after a three-stage rocket. Being actual ‘Rocket Scientists’ they built special equipment to make the cone-wrappers at high-speed along with other equipment made by hand.

GooGoo Cluster - In 1912,  in Nashville, TN, the world’s first ever combination candy bar was invented. A roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and real milk chocolate. Previous to the advent of the Goo Goo Cluster, candy bar manufacturing consisted of bars solely using chocolate, caramel or taffy. The Goo Goo Cluster represented the first time a bar consisted of more than just one principal ingredient.
