    1. I truly enjoyed this book It was a wonderful trip down memory lane to the simple days of spending hours in the five and dime stores perusing the candy and deciding which ones to buy I remember how much a quarter could buy in those days being from Texas, I had to have a pink peanut patty at least once a week for a nickel I was also a fan of Baby Ruth, Oh Henry and 5th Avenue bars those may have come along later Anyway, I hope she writes a sequel So much candy not enough pages


    2. This book was so much fun to read and peruse What a fantastic walk down memory lane for everyone in my multi generational household, this book has been Everything candy is here My beloved Wacky Packages, Bottle Caps, JujyFruits, Good and Plenty, Dots and so many Outstanding book Darlene Lacey Can t wait to see what this author comes up with next.



    3. A too short trip to the candy store of yesterday that lives on in the souls and cavities of a generation Thanks Darlene


    4. Nice historical times on the candy bars companies over the years.Factoid into making of candy bars in USA.


    5. As a child of the 70s and 80s, it was a great to walk down memory lane and see all of the great junk food I used to pig out on way back when, as well as the stories of how all of the different companies that used to make your favorites merged with each other It was really cool to see and read about candy I haven t heard about in ages, including Tart And Tinys and those little coffins, garbage cans, and other plastic containers of candy that I used to gorge on in my youth Not a large volume, but [...]


    6. This was an interesting, well researched and nostalgic 63 page account of the history of candy from the 1940 s to the 1990 s A multitude of pictures of candy wrappings, packaging, advertisement and commercials brought back many memories Besides the ever present candy lined store shelves, there were the candy memories of past Halloweens, Christmases, Easter, Valentines, St Nicholas, etc Classic Candy was a quick, easy read of a book with an alliterative title.


    7. It almost took as long to download this as to read it It took 40 minutes to read on the Y s treadmill Totally lightweight read that seemed little than a entry The pictures of the candy were terrific though.


    8. Good quick readI m intrigued to delve deeper into some of the history s of famous and not so famous candy brands
