6) Good & Plenty

The oldest branded candy in the United States, Good & Plenty go way back to the 1890’s. There’s a lot of history behind them, but the candy is still a delight to taste buds today. Licorice lovers adore this old time candy treat. Good & Plenty are black licorice pieces coated in festive pastel candy shells.

7) Necco Wafers

Necco wafers are still made using the recipe they started out with in 1847. These delicious candy wafers came to be known as “Necco Wafers” in 1912, and are still referred to as such today. Each individually wrapped mini roll contains the flavors and colors of chocolate, lemon, orange, clove, wintergreen, cinnamon and licorice.

8) Milk Duds

Milk duds are an old-time chewy caramel candy smothered in a milk chocolate coating. An employee of the original manufacturer named them “duds” because the company was never able to make them perfectly round. We don’t care about the shape so much as the delicious chocolate-caramel combination of flavors!

9) Pez

We can’t decide which we like more: the delicious Pez candy or their fun character-themed dispensers! We have Pez dispensers in Marvel Heroes, Toy Story, and Star Wars. They make great party favors and are a joy for kids and grown ups alike. Make sure you have Pez refill packs on hand to keep the delicious fun going.
