Famous National Brands: Since these brands have been around over 100 years, 30 Days of Candy didn't want to leave them out. As a sample pack, they included Juicy Fruit, Tootsie Rolls, Hershey Chocolate Bar, and LifeSavers, since these can be bought everywhere.
Doscher's French Chews: Founded in 1871, these taffy pieces were called chews, since no one had heard of taffy yet. These were soft and chew taffy pieces.
Barnier Mini Pulpi: These were first created in 1885 and are a fruit/pulp-filled hard candy. I loved the strawberry.
Slo Pokes @ Black Cows: Slo Poke is a caramel candy while Black Cows are similar to tootsie rolls.
Everton & Murray Mints: Murray Mints have a milk/mint flavor, while Everton Mints have a strong pure mint flavor. I loved the Everton Mints.
Peanut Butter Bars: These reminded me of Halloween when I was a kid. These are crispy icing covered peanut crisps.
Good and Plenty: These are candy coated licorice.
Sour Lemon Balls: These came before Lemon Heads and are just hard lemon candy. They are not really sour, at least compared to modern sour candy.
Richardson Pastel Mints: A classic mint commonly found at weddings.
Atomic Fireballs & Lemonheads: Still popular after 100 years, Atomic Fireballs are a hot cinnamon while Leomonheads are a sour lemon candy.
Kits: These are similar to Now and Laters, in that there are several chews in each pack and are a tougher chew to eat.
May Janes: I used to get these in my trick or treat bags too. These are peanut taffy.
Zeeuwse Babbelaars: This is a butterscotch hard candy with bit of salt flavor.
Necco Wafers: A classic American candy. These are basically flavored sugar discs.
Goetze's Bullseyes: These are caramel cream candy in chocolate, caramel and strawberry.
Butter Mint Rolls: These taste just like the Richardson Pastel Mints, only bigger.
Fralinger's Salt Water Taffy: This soft taffy was founded in the 1800's. I tried the strawberry and loved it.
Peanut Butter Chews: This candy was said to come about when Nettie Fralinger's bag of peanuts and taffy gor crushed by a circus elephant. My husband wondered why you would eat a candy after an elephant stepped on it, which is a good point. There peanut butter taffy pieces.
Dumle Toffee: These toffee candies date back 125 years!
Hopjes: A coffee/caramel candy. My husband didn't really care for these.
Mint Humbugs: These are a peppermint candy with a toffee center. Very unique and tasty.
Black Taffy: This is a mix of regular taffy and black licorice.
Charleston Chew: I have heard of these but never tired them till this box. This is a chocolate bar with vanilla/marshmallow center.
Abba Zaba: These were created in 1922 and used to have a very racist packaging. In the 1950's, the packaging was changed to the taxi cab look. This is a white taffy with peanuts throughout.
Walnettos: These candies are part of MREs (meals ready to eat), although my husband has never had them before. These are a caramel/taffy like candy, but I wasn't a fan.
Bonomo's Turkish Taffy: These taffy candies date back to 1912 and come in banana, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.
Maple Walnut Chews: These literally taste like maple and walnut mixed together.
Squirrel Nut Zippers: The name came from a popular drink during prohibition, but this doesn't taste anything like the drink, these are peanut chews.
Red Bird Peppermint Puffs: These taste just like the puffy peppermints you get at Christmas.
Root Beer Balls: These root beer balls were my husband's favorite candy. He said it tastes like IBC Root Beer.
