Do you remember summers, as a kid, going down to the corner store to grab your favorite candy with your friends? This month, Jungle Jim’s wants to bring back fond memories of childhood by showcasing all of the nostalgic candy our enormous Candy Department has to offer! Whether you grew up in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s, we have something for you. And these are just fraction of what we have on display!
Take a trip with us through our sweetest memories of the decades we’re showcasing, sit back, relax, and let the sugar flow!
These simple hard candies come in a variety of flavors. They’re super colorful, sweet on the outside, and sour on the inside.
This crushed candy packs a punch. Pop Rocks fizz in your mouth when you eat them! They accomplish this by heating the mixed ingredients and exposing them to pressurized carbon dioxide gas. As the candy hardens gas bubbles get trapped inside. As they dissolve in your mouth, the gas escapes with a “pop.”
These flavored sugar packets come with a stick that you can lick and dip! Fun Dip didn’t always come with the candy sticks though. Up until the 70s, Fun Dip was called Lik-M-Aid, and when it was rebranded to Fun Dip the sticks were added. You’ll find Fun Dip in flavors like cherry, grape, raspberry, and various sour flavors.
Candy Sticks have been around for decades! They’re long chalky sugar that come in boxes. You might also find these in bubble gum, as well.
