A whole lot of money, not a lot of product April 03, 2012
"I was definitely unimpressed when I received this package. I guess I didn't ready the description thoroughly, because the image showed a box PACKED with candy from each decade. Instead, there's hardly anything in there. :-/"

Really Disappointing January 26, 2012
"I gave a candy loving friend the 70s box for her 40th bday. When I saw it at her house, I was kind of embarrassed. The box is smaller than expected. Then, when she opened it, there was exactly ONE Swedish Fish inside. ONE. The long candy stick with a swirl was broken in 3 pieces. In general, the box was very underwhelming and seemed cheap. In retrospect, I wish I had put something together myself. It would have looked nice and contained more."

WHAT A FUN GIFT! January 13, 2012
"I purchased two boxes of candy by the decade (1960s and 1970s) for coworkers of mine and they LOVED them! They could not stop reminiscing about their childhood and their all time favorite candies. The stories they told and the childhood memories that came back had us all laughing. This is definitely a great gift to give or receive... you won't be disappointed!!!"

really cool box/ not all pieces included January 10, 2012
"I bought this as a Christmas gift for my dad. He grew up in the 60s and I thought it would be a great gift of childhood memories. I loved the box it came in, it really added to the charm of the gift. I knew that it only came with one sample of each piece of candy, I thought that would be enough for the novelty of it. But I'm sad to say that when we opened the box. Some of the candy was missing. This gift even has a description online of all the candy it comes with. I was disheartened by this. If they take the time to tell us what all comes in the box, it is just cruel then to leave pieces out."

Not exciting January 05, 2012
"I was under the impression it was more than what was received along with the flimsy box. For the price I expect something more than what I would find at wal-mart. The others products we have purchased have been wonderful this one was a disappointment."

Not worth the money January 04, 2012
"I got the 1950's candy for my husband for Christmas, and he was amused by it. BUT, considering that it was all penny or nickel candy (smarties, root beer barrel, chuckles, candy necklace, etc.), it is not very much candy for the money. Couldn't you have least put two of everything in the box?"

Super Meaningful December 31, 2011
"My boyfriend was raised as a wandering hippie in the 70s, and I've heard stories about how special it was for him to eat a can of mandarin oranges, or a fresh pear. It was my pleasure to send him the 70s candy for a Happy New Year present to have a little taste of what he missed. He was delighted and told all his friends what a cool girlfriend I am. Would buy again and again!"

Very small December 29, 2011
"I was disappointed at the size of this I thought it would be regular size. My husband liked it but I paid way to much for very little candy. I wish I had listened to other reviews."

Not worth the effort December 11, 2011
"Although the candy was a present and I didn't eat any of it, the amount was small compared to the price. Also, the package was crushed on one end from poor shipping so I was a bit embarresed to wrap it. It was a gag gift so that was part of the joke but if this had been something of more importance, I would have sent it back."
