A Look At 1980s Candy

1980s Candy

The 1980s is that era when everything was absolutely bright. Neon colors were a cool statement, the fashions sense was completely absurd, and  the music was made up  of overly digitized sounds.  The 80s is also that time when  Michael Jackson danced and sang across stages all over the world, teaching people the moonwalk.  But among all things that were happening in the world this time, there were delicious candy discoveries to be found. Here are some of the best 1980s candy treats you must try.

The Runts Candy are among the 80s you definitely must try. They have all the fruitiness you desire in candy. They even come in fruit like shapes as well as cute little hearts. Runts Candy was first produced in 1982, with the original flavors of orange, banana, cherry, lime and strawberry. Throughout the years, some of the flavors have changed. Banana, orange and strawberry were the sole survivors of Runts, but grape and green apple have been added to the mix since then.  Runts Candy were born of the sweet delightfulness of Willy Wonka’s imagination, and they are known for being hard on the outside and soft on the inside. With their colorful fruit shapes as well as enticing fruity flavours, they are guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again.

Apart from Runts Candy, another 1980s candy you must try is the Cow Tales. These creamy and chewy retro candies first appeared on the market in 1984. They are are long, cylinder-shaped candy with an outside coating of delicious caramel as well as a creamy filling of strawberry, vanilla, chocolate or caramel apple. They are made by Goetze’s Candy, but before Cow Tales hit the market, Goetze’s Candy was famous for their caramel cream candies, also called “Bull’s Eyes”.
