Best Christmas Candy

We never had much candy around our house, unless it was the Christmas season. I think my parents went a little crazy stocking up on a variety of sweet treats...but I'm pretty sure my sweet toothed Dad was responsible for most of it.

Some of the popular stuff these days wasn't around when I was growing up..so there were no red & green holiday M&Ms or chocolate oranges.

These were some of the big ones at our house. Were any of these your favorites?  Did I miss something good?

CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW SANTAS: I always got at least one of these in a treat bag when I went to go see Santa Claus at the Knights of Columbus hall every year. I always wished they were more chocolate, less marshmallow.

And I always felt a little guilty biting the head off the jolly old elf.




PEANUT BRITTLE:  This stuff had to be good for you, with all that protein in those peanuts! I really liked the small pieces left at the bottom of the bowl.

And I was really happy when they came out with the Peanut Munch candy bar. Even though they had a few too many peanuts for my liking.




MERINGUE CANDY:  I think we had another name for this whipped concoction of egg whites and sugar.

Was it called divinity? Or maybe sea foam? I'm so confused.





ANGEL FOOD CANDY:  Not to be confused with devil's food cake, this yellowish candy covered with chocolate was always purchased at Fleet Farm in bulk.

If you buy candy from a place that also sells cattle prods and paint, it's got to be good.




CANDY CANES:  I'm not a huge fan of peppermint candy, so I always thought these made a better tree ornament than confection.

Probably because they took too long to eat and prevented me from shoving all those other goodies in!

The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...
