    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.

    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.

  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!

    I LOVE ALL CANDY! AHH! My absolute favorite (besides the obvious, anything chocolate) would have to be lemon drops. I cannot get enough of them!

  29. avatar Rachel G. reply

    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!

    Werther’s Caramels. My great uncle carried them in his pocket and would give my five siblings and I one every time we saw him.

  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!

    I don’t know if it’s considered nostalgic, but I associate Rolos with my childhood. They were my special candy I’d get for the movies.

A couple of weeks ago, some of our dear readers and friends helped us spread the Christmas spirit with our first ever Gingerbread Barn Building Competition! Aprons were tied, holiday music was playing, coffee was brewed and game faces were on. We were so glad that our dear friend Nancy Ray was on hand to help capture the fun on camera!

About 40 Southern Weddings readers joined us in the beautiful Hill Ballroom at the Carolina Inn to show off their gingerbread building chops. Among the supplies were dozens of piping bags full of yummy Sugarland royal icing, boxes full of peppermint from Hammond’s Candies, marshmallows, pretzels, M&Ms, Hershey’s kisses, holiday-shaped chocolate, red hots, candy canes, and sprinkles galore! (And of course, animal crackers! They’re barns, after all!)

The Carolina Inn was wonderful to us and provided coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cookies to keep sugar highs at bay.

After an hour and half of intense construction and decorating, it was time for official judging by the Southern Weddings ladies! We chose one winner and three runners-up in categories like “Most Barn-Like, “Most Enthusiastic” and “Best Structure.”

Our grand prize winners, Andrea and Kat won gift cards to Minted! Our three runners-up received a Southern Weddings tote bag full of V2, V3, and V4!

All in all, it was a wonderful night and had a blast getting to know everyone, seeing their beautiful gingerbread creations and sneaking candy. We were so happy Nancy Ray was there to document the night and that Lara, Ari and baby Grace stopped by!

Happy Holidays, y’all!

*Minted is a Southern Weddings sponsor.
