Christmas Candy, Old Fashioned Candy & Other Old Candy You Thought They Quit Making

As children, we remember the Christmas candy our moms and dads bought for us each year. Often, we would wake up Christmas morning to find hard Christmas candy in our stocking left by Santa during the night. As years passed, the delicious hard Christmas candy was replaced with other types of candy. It seemed that all the old time candy we loved was gone forever.

Surprisingly, after doing some research, I found many stores still carry or even make the scrumptious old fashioned candy we tell our kids about year after year. Wanting to share in my happiness, I have compiled a list below to direct you to some of the old time candies I remember and loved as a child. I hope you enjoy what I discovered, and Merry Christmas!
