Almost as interesting as it will be to watch the effects of my grandpa ingesting 4 pounds of processed sugar a la Slo Pokes, Red Hots, and Chuckles on Christmas morning is noting that, of the wax-wrapped candy treats contained in the 1940s nostalgia pack, those three have withstood the test of time and can still probably be bought at my neighborhood Walgreens. Which is particularly surprising when it comes to Chuckles, because Chuckles are gross.

Retro Candy Gift Boxes from the 40s through the 90s (really? The 90s are "retro" now? Crap.) each contain around 30 different candies demonstrative of their respective era that will help the recipient relive childhood memories through a high-fructose-corn-syrup-induced spirit journey. Baby Boomers, how about a few Candy Buttons and a mouthful of Moon Pie? Mad Men fanatics and primetime members of the tumultuous 60s, take yourselves back just to the good times with a box of Good & Plenty, some Necco Wafers, and a wad of Gold Mine Nugget Bubble Gum. Braless, hairy hippies of the 70s rejoice and reminisce in the days of masking your body odor with Appleheads and Cherry Zotz. 80s kiddos, open up for a sprinkling of Nerds and brace for an Atomic Fireball (now available in delicious Whisky for our grownup versions). And children of the 90s, who are still basically children, have at your Air Heads, Sour Patch Kids, and Push Pops.
