It’s the most wonderful time of the year, time to buy those sentimental holiday favorites – the “must-have” sweets and treats for Christmas.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane….
Do you remember this candy?
I grew up with this old school candy favorite, they were in my grandparents’ cut glass candy dishes every holiday. Each year I search high and low so I can fill my candy jars with these sweet treats.
I found this year’s candy at our local Walgreens pharmacy. If you have a Walgreens, give them a call, they might have this mix. They also carried old-fashioned ribbon candy.
The brand my grandparents always purchased were Brach’s – there are a few varieties: Brach’s Arabian Nights Mix, Brach’s Old-Fashioned Holiday Mix and Brachs’s Filled Red Raspberries Hard Candy.
