Here, we’re going to take a quick look at two assortments: “Remember the 70’s” and “Remember the 80’s” candy packages to see what retro sweets lie within, as well as the packaging (which is maybe the funnest part).
“Remember the 70’s” candy
The outer packaging for “Remember the 70’s” candy features some of the most popular colors of the decade, including orange and avocado green. All around the front and sides are groovy graphics reminding us of the 70’s, like:
- A disco/Staying Alive-type graphic
- Platform shoes
- 70’s van
- 70’s patterns
The featured candy includes Sweet Tarts, Tootsie Pops, Dum Dums, Razzles, Now and Laters, and Tootsie Rolls (which, just as a sidenote, are still fairly readily available in stores).
“Remember the 80’s” candy
The packaging for “Remember the 80’s” candy is even more awesome! Both of the major color schemes of the 80’s—fluorescent and pastel—are covered, with pastel blue and purple, as well as fluorescent pink and yellow. The front and sides are totally 80’s, with graphics showing:
- Cassette tapes
- Space Invaders
- A rubik’s cube
- A Delorean
- 80’s hair
- A walkman
- A cordless phone
- 80’s “paint splat” graphics
The featured candy includes Lemonheads, Air Heads, Sour Patch Kids, Nerds, and Now and Laters.
The only downside is that there’s no chocolate included. Maybe chocolate does not fall into the hard candy or chewy candy categories, but it’s an important part of the candy world.
