Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid" story? Share it here.

My favorite Sixlets memory goes back to 1968, when I was in the 2nd grade in a tiny town in rural Colorado. My teacher had a drawer full of penny candy in her desk drawer, and whenever a student got a 100% on any schoolwork, that child got to stay after school and pick from her drawer of candy. Oh, how hard I would work for those perfect papers! My favorite was Sixlets chocolate candy, and I would always feel around the drawer with my eyes shut, trying to pick out the Sixlets. The other types of candy were ok, but my aim was always for the Sixlets. I loved to crunch right through the candy shell to get to the chocolate.

A highlight for any child in the classroom was to get to help her fill up the drawer again when it got dangerously low. She would give one lucky child a whole dollar, and we would get to walk ALONE to the grocery store two blocks away to get 100 pieces of penny candy. When I got to go, I would always ask for more Sixlets than anything else, knowing that if I worked extra hard on my schoolwork, my reward would be those yummy little balls of chocolate! ~ Anne from Nebraska

My Childhood
  Sixlets are both a significant piece of my AND my mother's childhood. Truth be told, I'm eating them right now! My mom's parents had a house out in a rural town (old whaling town andthe basis of the movie 'The Perfect Storm'-- sorry friends, do your research hehe) in Massachusetts, and even until I was older we would go there for at least a few weeks every summer. Since she was a little girl there has been a penny candy store in the town one over that sold Sixlets, and both to her and her siblings and to me and my siblings, the candy serves as a delicious and savory reminder of childhood happiness and an awakening to what is truly a phenomenal snack. This is to the point that when I was at school 5 months ago (in upstate New York), I saw a large pack of sixlets, and on a very (VERY) strict budget could not resist buying 5 packs, for all my friends and family to enjoy. This is not to say that my enjoyment of Sixlets is merely sentimental, although it is surely steeped personally in memory; the taste and texture are truly something over which one should and would marvel. They have given generations of people joy and both immediate and prolonged gratification. If my opinions means anything, but them while you can. Enjoy them. And, If you happen to be one who wants others to enjoy pleasure, recommend them. Thankyou, a loyal fan

Old Fashioned Candy Lover
  I ordered many different items from Old Time Candy for a friends birthday basket. It was so fun finding all of the old candies we ate growing up and giving them to her. An excellent gift idea, and everything was so fresh when it arrived. So much fun!! I recommend everyone take a trip down memory lane! Thank Old Time Candy....I will for sure be back!
