Introducing Candy

Candy is an interesting website with early roots as McKeesport Candy Company established in 1927. Their company motto is that "the future of candy is rooted in the past".

Candy Nostalgia and History Across The Decades

While the  primary purpose of Candy is to sell candy, this company clearly loves
the stories that go with their brands. Candy devotes many pages on their site on the education of candy with sections discussing "Candy Timeline", "History of Candy", "Nostalgia Ads" "Candy in Pop Culture" and so much more.

I really had a ball reading the articles about Candy in Pop Culture.
