Is Penny Candy Really A Thing Of The Past?

Many of you may have sweet childhood memories of going into a candy store, drug store, or general store and being able to purchase your favorite candies for a penny per piece. Maybe you’re not old enough to have experienced this for yourself but have possibly heard similar stories from older family members. It was certainly a special treat and you probably saved up your pocket change for quite some time to be able to indulge in a few simple pieces of candy. As the years went by, penny candy seemed to disappear and become a relic of the past. 

While there aren’t too many candies available today that will only cost you a penny, if there are any at all, the great news is that many of these sweet penny candy treats are still available to enjoy if you just know where to look. Taking a trip to your local superstore or dropping into a mini-mart on your way to work is not likely to lead you in the direction of any penny candy these days.
