“Trick Or Treat Goodies”

Description from Kathryn R: I got inspired by the Gaea Paint Pallette pendant that looks to me like a trick-or-treat bag, with the 2 handles on top. So, I decided to re-live my childhood by filling it with goodies I used to get in my bag:
Red Hots, Root Beer Barrels, Grape Gumdrop Shapes, Cherry Pops, yummy Caramels and Toffee, Chocolate Mints, Licorice Ribbons and Nibs, Caramel Apples, Malted Milk Balls, Candy Apples, and those little wax bottles of "Grape Soda" that you bit off the top and drank the liquid. A lot has changed in the candy world since! Happy Halloween!

    You have created glorious memories of Halloweens long, long ago (50′s and half of 60′s.

    Kathryn, I lived for all those candies. A nickel could go along way at the store back then. Great pick!

    Thanks for the reminders, Mary, and everyone! I also forgot to include the *Candycorn* that LB sells from Gaea! :) many of those treats you mentioned I loved at the movies too! Remember Milk Duds? And Laffy Taffy? But my favorite was Nibs. Good Heavens, if I were to eat as much of that stuff today, I would be in bad shape.

    I admit, I liked the wax lips! Miss those, but love your pick! I loved the milk duds and jujubees at the movies but Halloween was so many candies. All good, and the ones we didn’t like we traded with someone else. Grew up in a small town but had an older brother who followed us in the shadows while we walked around town. I loved the caramel eyes by Goetze, too.

    Yes! The wax RED lips! And those candy cigarettes. I really hated Circus
    Peanuts, those pale orange marshmallow things. Those were the first to go out of my bag. The neighbor lady made us kids popcorn balls which I loved. That was before all the dangers in the treats.
