I just started buying Razzles gum again. IMO I think they taste better today.
2002-08-12 06:49:59 PM  
Razzles are great unless you get an expired package. They just turn to 'edible' powder rather than a partial candy/partial gum mixture.

"Remember getting Wax Lips every year for Halloween. How funny it was to look at a friend who was wearing Wax Lips."

No, I just remember them being stupid.

A buck twenty-five for Sen Sen?!?! WTF? I should have kept mine and made a fortune on eBay.
2002-08-12 06:52:23 PM  
Wtf, no marathon bar? Weak.

Hot Tamales rule!
2002-08-12 06:52:48 PM  
Well, they didn't have the little wax bottles filled with juice. But they did have the poor kids heroin, Pixy Stix.
2002-08-12 06:53:20 PM  
Candy cigarettes rule. I've been looking for these things forever. Whoever submitted this: Thanks!
2002-08-12 06:53:29 PM  
These prices actually seem pretty damn shipping like $40 or something?

Squirrel Nut Chews $0.25 Each
2002-08-12 06:55:07 PM  
Is American Retro chocolate as bad as your current chocolate with 0% taste? Boy, does USA candy suck - big time.

Where's the Texan Chocolate Bars? Massive Wagon Wheels? Pah!

Official candy of Fark?

Does candy go bad?
2002-08-12 06:58:53 PM  
Charm Pops are $14.98 ea.

Does candy go bad?

Up next on FOX, When Candies Go Bad III, with your host Jimmy Smits.

Wldncrzy14: OK, I'll bite. Where did you find 'em?
2002-08-12 06:59:47 PM  
Wldncrzy14, would make sense, wouldn't it?
2002-08-12 07:00:50 PM  
ISG, on the same website. Just click the picture, I made it a link.

And Cheezie, I'm not sure why some (such as sour patch kids) are so damn expensive. Maybe it's a box of 12/24 or something?
2002-08-12 07:00:58 PM  
There's a spot on the beach around here that specializes in stocking these classic and hard to find candies. Great tourist attraction.

My personal all-time favorite is bottle caps. I've fond childhood memories of eatin' bottle caps while opening baseball and wacky pack card packs from the corner store.

2002-08-12 07:02:35 PM  
Maybe because they only a few suckers left (pun intended) so they have to sell them at those prices. heh.
2002-08-12 07:03:33 PM  
Astro pops! Yeah!
2002-08-12 07:03:53 PM  
I did a search for coupon codes for this site. Not sure if it's expired, but if you wanna order you can try it.

15% off, Use coupon code: FATHER
2002-08-12 07:04:18 PM  
Mmmmmm. Boston Baked Beans!
2002-08-12 07:05:52 PM  
THERE ARE only. Damnit.

What about those two-toned, two flavoured powdery suckers that sort of tasted like huge SweetTarts? I don't see them anywhere.
2002-08-12 07:06:28 PM  
Where's the retro boobies mentioned in the link's description?
2002-08-12 07:07:48 PM  
Wldncrzy14: I'm sure those nik-l-nip candies are the source of the mysterious "wax blobs" that began appearing on certain Camden, NJ sidewalks after a few hot summer days. (there was some link a week or so ago about them)
2002-08-12 07:08:47 PM  
Black Taffy kicks ass.
2002-08-12 07:08:59 PM  
Does anybody remember a candy called "Volcano Rocks"? They were kind of like Nerds. I can't find any information anywhere on this here internet.
2002-08-12 07:09:31 PM  
If you want retro boobies just go to

Nik-l-nip things are probably the biggest waste of money, candywise. I mean it's like all wax with 5 drops of sugary liquid inside. Course that never stopped me from wanting them...
2002-08-12 07:09:35 PM  
Just e-mail your friends the links and get them to buy and send you retro candy. heh I am trying this, I'll let you know how it goes.
2002-08-12 07:10:07 PM  
what - no wacky packs?
2002-08-12 07:10:41 PM  
Mrcookieface: Are those like Pop Rocks?
2002-08-12 07:10:55 PM  
Hey, a Retro Party Bag!

why does that sound weird?
2002-08-12 07:11:45 PM  
They have Zotz! Took me a minute to remember what those were. If you order something, make sure to get some of those, they're fizzy hard candies, almost as good as pop rocks.
2002-08-12 07:12:26 PM  
"How funny it was to look at a friend who was wearing Wax Lips." sure it was hilarious for stupid lame pathetic loners
2002-08-12 07:12:55 PM  
Freshen Up gum - anyone remember that? After the gooey center climaxed, there was no flavour left at all.
2002-08-12 07:14:31 PM  
"Just like eating a nut. :)" ha ha ha ha
2002-08-12 07:17:15 PM  
Does anyone else think that these look like diaphrams?
2002-08-12 07:17:24 PM  
CheezieDanish: No, they weren't like pop rocks. They were more like Nerds - but multi-colored. They came in a little brown box if I remember correctly.

I used to eat 'em all the time in the late '70s.
2002-08-12 07:17:59 PM  

2002-08-12 07:19:22 PM  
Zotz Strings are like Fizz Whizz. I'm excited.
2002-08-12 07:21:51 PM  
"Does candy go bad?" lol My name is Candy,and yes, on occasion I can go bad. For the record, Necco is my all time favorite.......shaped just like little coins, I like that!
2002-08-12 07:24:02 PM  
CheezieDanish, best description of FreshenUp gum that I ever saw. I always thought it was weird when I'd bite down on one, and it squirted in my mouth. Eeeew...

I remember those big, lozenge things you'd mentioned above; can't remember what they were called. Get one, and spend the better part of an hour gnawing on the damned thing.
2002-08-12 07:24:37 PM  
Wldncrzy14: Thanks. These old eyes must have missed 'em. I'll pick up some of those and some insulin.
2002-08-12 07:24:42 PM  
This is a testimonial I saw on their site:

I want to thank you for expediting my order and I am pleased with your products. I have not been able find the large Ice Cubes in my area and I have missed being able to enjoy them. Looking forwared to doing business with you in the future

Thanks again,


Large Ice Cubes?!
2002-08-12 07:27:13 PM  
HowlingFrog - an they had HOLLOW sticks, so you could REALLY suck on them afterwards. *laughin'*
2002-08-12 07:28:07 PM  
What no REGGIE chocolate.
2002-08-12 07:28:18 PM  
2002-08-12 07:31:49 PM  
Coo', Wld - I've NEVER heard of them before.
