Vintage candy from an Offbeat Bride’s wedding!

Awwwww, I got my first THANK YOU gift from an Offbeat Bride. I originally wrote about this bride when I featured her View Master wedding invitations and then I featured her amazing wedding shower and then, finally (and excitedly) featured her wedding which inspired an entire week of candy-themed weddings.

As a thank you, the bride Julia, sent both the Seattle and LA offices of Offbeat Bride a sweet note and bag full of vintage candy from her wedding!…

I am chowing down on a watermelon sour punch twist as I write this post. I mean, this bag is filled with awesome vintage candy that I didn’t even know existed!

Like, what's that pineapple doodle-bob top left? I dunno but it's cool!

And some of the ones that I do know and love. (I’m saving the Pop Rocks for later!)


I just tried one of these Zotz candies, they’re awesome and strange and then awesome again. They’re filled with some kind of fizzy sour liquid. It was strange and I liked it.

I also ate on of these Twin Bings, yet another candy I had never heard of. The packaging describes it as a “nutty chocolaty cherry treat” so of course I had to try it (cherry is my favorite flavor of anything) and it’s delicious! But holy CRAP, look how expensive they are!

What is your favorite vintage candies that I should know about?

        That’s hilarious, because I get candy in the mail all the time! It’s one of the perks of being deployed! 😉
