I purchased this gift for both my mother and father for Christmas. They are no longer together, so this is two separate experiences. I figured that this gift was a neat idea, but that is about it. Much to my surprise, the candy is all my parents talk about. Dad told me stories of his favorites....buying nekkos at the movies...his favorite candy bar that he can never find. Mom talked about going down to our family owned gas station and buying her favorites also. Both were excited to receive the gift! A great throw back to give!
