6 Of Our Favorite Candies of the 1960s; I Wish They Still Made Number 5!

The flavors and scents bring back so many memories: going to the corner store after school, the teacher’s prizes for doing well, and the pennies saved up to go to the candy store. These are some of our favorite candies from the 1960s.

This hard, crackable candy was invented in 1912. In 1936 it acquired the name we know it by. Turkish Taffy became extremely popular in the 1960s with popularity declining after that. In 2010 they started making the candy again, much to the delight of hard-taffy-lovers. The candies sold at an unprecedented rate!

5) Coconut Neapolitans
