It’s that time of the year…Halloween!
One of the great things about Halloween is all the goodies you can get (even if you don’t hand any out) and since this is a vintage blog I thought we could browse some of the vintage ads of all the yummy candies that would have landed in kids bags during the 1940s and 1950s.
I have never heard of this candy before, but the fact that it whistles fills my heart with joy.
mmmmmm Cracker Jacks. I’m positive you would have been the favorite on the block if you handed this treat out.
FULL Candy bars! Nothing teeny tiny here. Wow can you imagine the sugar high these kids would have been on after eating multiples of those?
I will take the Butterfinger please…and maybe the Baby Ruth too while we are at it.
Woolworth’s, your one stop shop for all things Halloween.
Milky Way Candy Bars are still a favorite of mine today.
I have heard of Snickers, and Milky Way but never the “Forever Yours”. Have you?
This ad makes me giggle that a tree is eating a chocolate bar.
Curtiss Treats! Another candy I have not heard of “Saf-T-Pops”. They look really interesting though, don’t you think?
I was not a 50’s child but I remember in the 80s getting small boxed cereal in my treat bag and loving it! Cereal for dessert?? Yes I will thank you.
I was actually craving Dubble Bubble just yesterday, and now after seeing this adorable 1952 ad I really want some.
So my friends, if you were able to go out on Halloween what was your favorite treat? What did your home pass out to kids?
