Well, this article, for one.  By far, the vast majority of the candy featured was created long before the '90s and/or is still sold today.

There are a couple of "vintage" candy stores around here where you can get all of the old stuff from when you were a kid.

Um...Cherry Chan, Lemonheads, Alexander the Grape, etc... were NOT the sole
province of the 90s. I was scarfing them down like mad in the late 70s.

CSB -

In my neighborhood, there was this lady. None of us kids knew her name, but we  all
knew her as the Candy Lady. Everyday after school, we would all descend onher
house with our spare change and buy those delicious boxes of sugary goodness.

Looking back, it probably wasn't a smart idea to allow ourselves to be lured into a
strange lady's home with the promises of candy.

Oh well...live and learn.

Not sure if there's one closer, but it's never a bad idea to drive the 45 minutes from my friend's place in Manchester to Yummy's in Kittery, Maine.  She literally bought a case of candy cigarettes last time we went.

The entire article is useless (a lot of those candies still exist) save for this gem:

How does that work? Do companies make limited runs just for these stores, or do the stores sell old candy?

And, I've never eaten most of those. I was one of those poor deprived children whose parents were worried about things like healthy teeth and not having their children bouncing off of walls, so they'd almost never buy us candy. I'd pretty much only get it around holidays or if they were giving out candy in Sunday School.

/also, homemade granola instead of sugar cereal

Hey, Hey,  HEY!  That's only the 90's!  That's not old enough to be "nostalgic!"
