I Want Candy

I searching for some vintage inspiration recently. One of my favorite sources is vintage advertising. I came across this Brach's ad from the 50s. I love the colors and especially love that it features candy - one of my favorite things!

That is really *sweet*! :)
I remember the Brach's Royals.... they were chocolate, Tootsie-roll like, but had different flavors in the middle (and softer). They were in "bulk" in the grocery store, and my brother and I were allowed to select a few when we went to the store with my mom.
Nice memories; thanks for sharing this.

Hi Karla,
You and me both...looking for inspiration in old candy ads! I've been looking for vintage Halloween candy ads. Not too many of those around!

How cute! Love the colours in vintage advertising and vintage children's books are another great source too if you're looking for inspiration xo

Hoo boy! I loves me some vintage schlock. Those old adds have such crazy colors. Have you ever seen any of the old saltwater taffy ads from the east coast? Some of those colors are really gorgeous.I really like the little resin charms, too, by the way.

I don't know if they still have bins of Brachs candy in grocery stores but I remember when I was little that was one of our favorite things about going food shopping. There always these bins and bins of Brach's candies.

Great candy ad
