CandyFavorites.com, the Internet's oldest and largest candy site is proud to announce that customers now have the ability to purchase their favorite candies based on the decade when it was first offered.
"People love retro candy and we get so many request for candies from a specific time period for anniversaries or birthdays," said Jon H. Prince, President, "and with the recent emphasis on nostalgic candy, we thought it would be a great feature to allow shoppers to browse by specific decades. This is the perfect way to add an authentic sweet touch to a landmark event!"
CandyFavorites.com offers over 2800 varieties of candy, with an emphasis on bulk candy, Brachs Candy and hard to find old-fashioned and classic candy offerings. It also features a unique section devoted to candy related history as well as one of the first blogs devoted to candy.
"From the start, I envisioned CandyFavorites as being an online candy store and an educational resource focusing on the American candy industry my family has been involved in for over eighty five (85) years," says Jon H.Prince. "Our Shop by Decades section gives customers a glimpse at the confectionary landscape when they or their parents or grandparents were born and it is often surprising at just how long many of the great candy bars have been around.
"Established in 1927, we are one of the oldest wholesale candy companies in the nation and we have offered many of these candies long before they were considered retro," says Jon Prince, "and this section pays tribute to both our and our industry's longevity."
"When I first started in this industry over thirty years ago, a candy bar cost a nickel and using the Shop by Decades feature is the equivalent of a visit to the candy stores of my youth." Says Tom Griffin, General Manager. "I think that visitors to our website will enjoy the educational aspect as well as our vast selection of treats."
