When the oppressively hot days of late summer bear down upon us, there comes a day when we actually begin to long for the brisk days of winter. After months of unbearable humidity and excessive heating bills, it is no wonder that many people long for the short days of winter.

Of course, it isn’t long into January when many of us who wished away the summer begin to count down the days until spring again. As brutal as a heat wave in August can be, it really is nothing compared to the inconvenience of winter blizzard after winter blizzard.

Between the crushing cold of the winter and the intolerable heat of the summer, however, lies the sweet spot of spring. Every year we never quite know just how long spring will last. Sometimes it will pop up in early March and then suddenly disappear again a few weeks later with a late season snowstorm. Other times the winter will drag on for months and then after just a few short weeks of moderate temperatures, summer comes blasting in early.

The key to enjoying moderate temperatures is to take advantage of spring as soon as it comes around! Don’t waste those wonderful 70 degree days sitting indoors watching television. Get out and make the most of that incredible weather!

The very best spring days can actually remind us of the childhood we left behind long ago. And with a delicious spring treat you can hearken back to the happy go lucky times of your childhood. These old-time treats will bring your heart and mind around to the days when you truly felt footloose and fancy free.

Candy Land Gift Basket

As children we all loved to play games. One game that almost every adult of a certain age is sure to remember is that famous game called Candy Land. What better way to appeal to children than with a game that actually combines candy AND fun!?

This delightful gift basket comes with a wide variety of candy treats packed right into an adorable commemorative bucket that pays homage to the classic board game. But beyond the collectible bucket, the real treat here is the incredible amount of candy that is included!

Inside the metal tin you can find Twizzlers, Junior Mints, Pop Rocks, Good and Plenty, Chiclets, SkyBars, Zagnuts, Baby Ruths, giant lollypops, Big Hunks, Look Bars, Rock Candy, Milk Duds, and much, much more! This makes an amazing treat for a friend, family member, or even just for yourself!

Jujubes

Jujubes are a delightful candy treat that are just perfect for the movies. Unlike sour candies that can tear up your mouth while you suck on them, Jujubes are a smooth and sweet candy that you can enjoy all through the film. They come in a wonderfully colorful variety of different flavors.

With this candy you can have them packaged in either a mini bin or a signature paint can. Both of these containers are refillable so you don’t ever have to see the sad sight of an empty candy jar!

Candy Bar Time Capsule

Picking out gifts for friends and family can often be a difficult decision. The key to this tough task is to show that you put some thought into the present. Well, if you know someone with a sweet tooth and an affinity for a certain generation, you can look no further than this delightful candy bar time capsule. You can pick time capsules that have candies from the 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s.

In the 20s time capsule you will find old-fashioned treats like Baby Ruth, Tootsie Rolls, Ida Spud, O’Henry, Mr. Goodbar, Milky Way, Heath Bar, Chuckles, and much more. The 50s time capsule has Candy Buttons, Caramel Cream Trays, Doscher Chewy taffy, Mik L Nip, Wax Lips, Hot Tamales, Atomic Fireballs, Lifesavers, and a few other candies as well.

If you are looking for something a little more recent, the 80s time capsule is the ideal sweet treat for Generation X. In it you can discover Jump Push Pop, Bubble Tape, Blow Pops, Bubble Gum Cigarettes, Airheads, Big League Chew, and many, many more!

With old timey treats like all of these, you can make this spring your best one yet. Don’t waste your life away inside your house. Get out there with a timeless treat and enjoy a delightful spring day.
