Grandmother's Purse - Assorted Historic Candies & Sweet Treats - True Treats Historic Candy

A Gift of Love – Grandma’s Purse


How better to say “I love you” than with this collection of candy grandmothers have kept in their purses for generations. Many remember – or heard about – the Depression, the two World Wars, and other hard times when sugar was in short supply. When sugar came back, sugar-rich candy was a sign of affluence, certainty and the knowledge that everything was alright.  This selection comes tucked in a keepsake plastic purse, contains favorites through the ages:  Chic-O-Sticks, Lifesavers, Canada Mints, sour balls, Bit ‘O Honey, old time chewing gum and many more. The candies may vary, depending on availability.
