    My favorite nostalgia candy would have to be ribbon candy. My grandma used to buy it every Christmas and it was always so fun to see the bright colors peaking through the candy jar. I haven’t had it in years, and last Christmas I finally found some, but unfortunately, it just wasn’t the same as grandma’s.

  4. avatar Emily reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy is the clear rock candy! Pure sugar – so sweet and delicious, and they look pretty too!

  5. avatar Laura reply

    I think my favorite nostalgia candy are the soft peppermints pillows. You could always count on my Nana having a dish at her house.

  6. avatar Sarah reply

    Happy Birthday!! My favorite is the All Natural Butterscotch Lollipop

  16. avatar Courtney Croxdale reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy would definitely be Zotz. I love that they were imported to the US in the 60’s from ITALY and their tongue-tickling fizz, but I especially love buying a string a cracker barrel and splitting them with my fiance!

  17. avatar Heather Oakes reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy has to be the candy cane! My grandmom always hung them on her Christmas tree, and we cousins would always sneak them off throughout the holiday season!

    My favorite old candy is rock candy-it reminds me of going on field trips in elementary school where there would always be rock candy in the gift shop!

  30. avatar Robbie reply

    I have so many favorite nostalgic candies :) I love candy necklaces, because they remind me of when my sisters and I would ride bikes down to the dime store, and buy those, along with ring pops, push pops, etc. with our allowance money! We have so many great memories of that dime store and the candies.

  31. avatar Kennedy reply

    I love me some taffy! Happy birthday!

  41. avatar Larissa reply

    I love taking a break with a kit kat bar!

  42. avatar Afton Cole reply

    The milk chocolate caramels look amazing! My grandma and grandpa always had caramels in their house for the grandkids to eat. The ribbon candy also brings back fond memories of my childhood!

We can’t even image how cute these treats would look on your dessert bar or wrapped prettily in welcome bags! You’ll have to see for yourself!

To Enter: There are three ways to enter!
1. Leave a comment below telling us which 240sweet flavor tugs at your tummy the most.
2. Tweet “I just entered the @240sweet giveaway on @iloveswmag!” Then come back here and leave a SEPARATE comment telling us you did so!

    I have to say that blackberry twist sounds perfect to my ears!

  5. avatar Allie reply

    The Bourbon Sugar Churro with Cajeta flavor sounds amazing, because anything that is marshmallow and somehow churro related must be amazing. I think they would be best with the chocolate drink mix. Yummo! :-)

  18. avatar Ash V reply

    I had no idea it would be so difficult to pick a favorite! I’d probably have to pick either S’More or Cara Cara with White Chocolate. But seriously…narrowing it down to just those two was almost painfully difficult.

  25. avatar Bianca C. reply

    Hmmmm! Peppermint chip sounds great, not to mention the pineapple and mango! In fact all the fruit ones, and chocolate! :)

  26. avatar Emily Lawrence reply

    The only thing better than a sweet tea-flavored something would be a sweet tea with lemon-flavored something! I think the sweet tea flavor sounds delightful.

  27. avatar Brittany reply

    The Salty Caramel Twist! I just love the combination of caramel and salt especially with some chocolate!

  28. avatar christie reply

    “roasted pineapple” yum, yum, yum! Reminds me of summer!

  29. avatar Anne L reply

    Wow, so many amazing flavors! I’m super impressed at the selection… but it makes it so hard to choose just one! I’ll have to go with salty caramel twist.

After their fashion-forward ceremony, Alison + Manny treated their family and friends to a low-key reception at the Hermitage Hill Farm and Stables that brought all the comforts of home to the burlap-covered guest tables. The newlyweds decorated the space with their favorite books and handmade chalkboards that doubled as table assignments, and Flowers by Rose repurposed Mason jars with white tulips and daisies. I’m in love with the bride + groom’s sweet, made-for-two wedding cake, courtesy of Carrie Hampton Ashton. For those of you who can’t get enough of Alison + Manny’s big day, hop on over to Katelyn James’ blog post for more fun!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: This was the first dress I ever tried on! I didn’t have a very specific picture of what I was looking for, except that I would have loved to find a dress with a sweetheart neckline. I love pockets, too, but wasn’t too convinced I would find a wedding gown with them! I had visions of removing the large bow that was originally on it and adding a sash of flowers to make it fit my personality more, but when my mom and I removed the bow to make the changes, it looked perfect to me the way it was!
Describe your wedding flowers: I loved our flowers! Many of our decorations were sort of mismatched and pieced together in fun ways and so I knew I wanted some variety in the types of flowers. We placed a few stems of some tulips, some gerbera daisies, some hydrangeas, etc, in a mason jar wrapped in twine and a great shade of green ribbon! My parents found the jars at thrift stores in Harrisonburg and my mother in law had a friend with a farmhouse give her crates and crates of them They made adorable (and cheap!) vases and votive holders!
Describe your wedding cake: I had NO idea what the cake was going to look like. I had given the baker a few pictures of some ideas, and she created the most beautiful cake! Manny had expressed early on that he would like to have cupcakes at our wedding. I agreed and loved the idea! We just wanted a two-tier wedding cake in addition to the cupcakes, just large enough to be a centerpiece on the cake table. Our baker used ivory butter cream frosting on a chocolate fudge cake with peanut butter filling! The design was adorable and fit perfectly with our theme – she piped the middle of the two tiers with icing that looked just like the twine, adding an adorable little brown flower to the center.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Staying within our budget while planning a wedding with 250 guests! We had a budget of $10,000 we needed to remain under, and as such, it was a daunting task to figure out how to accommodate this large number of guests while still achieving a wedding day that was distinctly “us.” Planning the wedding for the “off-season” at our reception venue and using a local favorite barbecue place as our caterer were two things that really helped to off-set some costs! All of our centerpieces and decorations were basically homemade, as well!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Manny was offered a full time job on staff with Young Life AT our wedding!! We’ll find out in April where in Virginia he will be placed, and we will move at the end of July.

Written with love by Katharine
