Do you remember this candy like I do?
Do you remember looking into Grandma's fancy candy jar when you were small? This classic "Hammond's" candy has been around since 1920. Isn't that an interesting fact? Way back then, the Hammond's Company put all those colors and flavors together? I am sure our grandmas thought it quite a luxury to have a bag of candy like this. Maybe they only dreamt about having candy.
What is it about me, that makes me buy a small bag of this candy just for display? I bought this last Christmas and put it back in the candy jar this Christmas.
Same with the "Sevigny's" Thin Ribbon Candy. I have memories of eating this candy at my Grandma's house. The company has been making ribbon candy since 1926. Do you all remember this candy? What memories does it evoke when you see the bright ribbon pieces?
Yes, this has lasted a year in the box, and you might just see it next Christmas. It is too pretty to eat, and candy is not a temptation for me.
I was given this "Heidel" vintage box of chocolates last year. I don't have memories of this candy and I have no idea how many years the company has been in business. What I do like,is displaying the colorful tin, and...
...the vintage decorations of each of the four individual candy bars. Don't you think they look good sitting on my white wooden kitchen shelf?
Memories and vintage packaging make fun vignettes, and no calories.
That's it, from this rather "odd" blogger this evening:)
