8 Candies I Miss From the '70s

Jolly Rancher Fire Stix -I remember eating these at summer camp and I miss them!

Lik-M-Aid -I know these still exist but I haven’t personally enjoyed dipping the white stick into the powder in about 30 years. Sort sounds like something you’d do at a rave.

Zotz -OMG remember how these suckers fizzed up when you ate them? ZotzI just loved feeling like a rabid dog with a mouth full of foamy goodness.






Space Food Sticks -You’ll have to Google the image of these if you want to remember how delicious they were.

jujubesJujubes – If you had any teeth that you didn’t have use for anymore, Jujubes could be your ticket to losing them. On the other hand, if you had some expensive dental work you wanted to keep these weren’t your best bet. I loved eating a candy that stayed in my molars for three days. It was a money saver!






chunkyChunky – This was a good candy bar if you liked eating a candy bar in one bite. This one has raisin’s in it and I don’t like raisins in anything especially candy bars. If you like raisins in things we can’t be friends.






Wax lips – Remember wax lips? They didn’t last long when I had a pair. Even though they really only had a hint of sweetness, that’s all I need to chew them all up immediately.

Pop Rocks -I know that Pop Rocks are still around but the 70’s were their heyday and I ate them pretty much everyday.

Can you think of any candy from the 70s that’s not around anymore?
