As a child growing up in Philadelphia during the 1970's there were candy/ice cream stores of almost every corner. After school you would take your pocket change to the corner store and fill a bag of candy to the brim with penny candy as well as candy bars, gum and novelty candies. As the years went on...the corner stores began to close and now they are nearly a thing of the past. That is until I found this wonderful company

Old Time Candy brings the corner store right to your door with all of the nostalgic candies you remember as a child and so much more!!!

Old Time Candy offers subscription boxes, pack a bag goodies with all types of candies from pre-1920's to today, movie theatre candy, bulk candies, candy you ate as a kid decade bags, plastic tubs filled with sweet treats, retro toys, gifts and decade boxes from the 1950's thru the 1990's. All candy is FRESH and still made today...don't worry you won't be receiving any candy that was manufactured back in the day...hahah This is all FRESH right from the manufacturer.

Old Time Candy take the guess work out of gift giving by allowing you to choose how much and what type of candy you would like to receive. As a gift our suggestion is to go with one of the delightful Decade Candy Assortments. You choose the decade from the 1950's thru to the 1990's and Old Time Candy takes it from there...they fill each box with a selection of candies from that choose a 2 lb or a 4lb box. The selection is wonderful and the recipient will be taken back in time to their childhood. This will be one gift they soon will not forget. They offer holiday designed boxes as well as you get close to a specific holiday. At the moment they are offering a beautiful Mothers Day designed box.

Old Time Candy is based in Ohio right here in the USA. The business began in 1999 when the owners Karen and Donny Ray visited an large candy store in Cleveland Ohio that specialized in Old time candy. They had no idea that many of their old time favorites still existed. It was the candy they ate as kids. Necco Wafers, Candy Buttons on paper tape, Wax Lips, Candy cigarettes. They were hooked. They went online in early 2000 to share their love of nostalgic candy with the world through the world wide web. Their business has grown and grown since that day.

In addition to the delightful sweets that Old Time Candy offers you'll also find some of your favorite nostalgic toys and treasures from your childhood. Things like Sock Monkeys, Kaleidoscopes, Coca Cola Tin banks, Yoyo's, Colorforms, harmonicas, balsa glider planes, lava lamps, Sea Monkeys, Silly Putty, View Master and more. They offer premade gifts in boxes, bags, mugs, Party favor bags, lunch boxes filled with candy, tubs of candy, gift boxes overflowing with sweeties, Baseball Concession Stand Mix boxes and I could go on all day with their offerings. You really owe it to yourself to check them out and treat yourself and family to some Old Time Candy.

The Bloom Bright Box is a little box of sunshine delivered right to your door or the door of the gift recipient of your choosing. These adorable little boxes are chock full of precious themed gifts for you to enjoy or gift to others. Each box is filled with a theme. The boxes that we received were beautifully packaged and themed for a Spa day and for a Seashore theme day. Each box was filled with items encouraging kindness, love and inspiration that take you on a mini vacation and encourage some well deserved moments of peace and tranquility that can last for days. Everyone needs and deserves a little time yourself. Its good for the mind and for the soul. It rejuvenates you and helps your mental health.

Each box has a specific theme. The graphic design of the box coordinates color wise and theme wise with the products included in the box. The boxes that we received were overflowing with inspiration with the cutest boxes ever!!! You can see by the products included in the box, the careful thought to theme and color that a lot of time and effort went into creating these adorable gift boxes. The sweet gifts are unlike anything that we have seen before in subscription boxes. From jewelry that is handmade by crafters here in the USA to aromatherapy, shelf sitters to DIY skin care, intention cards, candles and more....every item matches the box theme perfect and color coordinates perfectly as well.

Box prices are very reasonable when you consider the handcrafted jewelry alone not to mention the gem stones and unique products and added treasures that Deborah, the owner includes in her box. We especially love the candles. The candles also handmade in reusable containers. Prices vary depending on your subscription choice. We highly recommend the 12 month option as it saves you the most money monthly...but if you would just like to try the box out feel free to go with the month to month option. You can also purchase past boxes when they are available on Deborah's Etsy shop. I'll include the link for the Crate Joy website as well as her Etsy shop below.

Platterful is a super unique Subscription Box or if you choose a one time box filled with the most delicious, gourmet Charcuterie board treats and snacks. With that said you can also add into your order one of their boards to complete your snack treat display if you are in need of a board or use one that you already have on hand at home. Platterful exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds as you will see in our photo's as well as in our video review. The true gourmet selection that they supplied within the box was a treasure trove for your taste buds...from sweet to salty to creamy and spicy...there was something for everyone in this box. You truly could not purchase nor compare the items that Platterful supplies in a kit with anything from your local supermarket. The value when putting this all together and accounting for each item seperately far exceeds the price tag!

Boxes from Platterful can be purchased as a subscription or as a one time purchase. These are perfect for every get together, corporate events, special occasions where you need a lil snack to offer guests, birthdays, 4th of July, Christmas, Easter or anytime you will have some family or friends over for a little

quality time together.

The thing that came to our mind when receiving this unique box was that it would be a wonderful gift from a business or corporation to its vendors. It would also make a delightful prize at a raffle or special event. There are a million reasons to give this unique gourmet gift from holidays, to birthdays, sympathy gift, anniversary celebration, graduation, mothers and fathers day....just to name a few!

Each box is chock full of the finest artisan meats, cheeses and other accompaniments to make your charcuterie board the most impressive, creative display that you guests will ever see but will talk about for a long time to come. This isn't your supermarket supplied snack board that everyone has seen a thousand times. No, not by a long shot!! Platterful supplies you with gourment snacks that are as unique as the company itself. They also offer a Gluten Free Box as well as a Vegan Box.

Platterful makes creating your Charcuterie board easy peasy lemon squeezie...with unique educational materials like a step by step guide with photo's that is laminated and can be used over and over again to help you create an artistically pleasing display...or you can ditch the instructional materials and do your own thing if you would prefer.

The one thing that we absolutely LOVE about Platterful though is that they have partnered with “NO KID HUNGRY”. Each box purchased will allow Platterful to serve 10 meals to children in need. They give back to the community by giving to children in need of food....WE LOVE THIS!!!!

Subscription Prices:

Month to Month Subscription: 75.00

3 Month Subscription Plan 179.00

6 Month Subscription Plan 349.00

12 Month Subscription Plan 689.00

Overall to say that we are thrilled with this box would be a complete understatement. The quality and value far exceeds the expense. We highly recommend Platterful!!! Try it for yourself, you'll LOVE Platterful!!!!
