Vintage Candy Part 3

One of the candies that all little girls liked when I was young was candy lipstick….it was in a cellophane wrapper with gold paper around it. It was chalky, and messy but tasted so good! I never had the patience to put it on as lipstick, it just vanished when I bought it :)

My friend Cheri and me have looked for this product for years, I was on the internet getting photos for my posts when I saw this:


This is exactly what they looked like! Now, the person who had the website stated that these were different as they are now a taffy substance, but are the same flavor as we all remember… so I am going to see if that is true…..

The poor kids in the generations after us got items like these:

Hard, gritty Smartie like stuff…. I feel for them, having never had a mess of pink goo painted around their mouth!

How about you….do you remember these?????

Have a great day! :)

I kinda remember some lipstick type candy, but not sure. I do remember big red wax lips...loved them (even 'tho they were paraffin). Also, remember 'hot dogs' long red spicy gum. Sometimes, I see old time candy in certain shops or at Walgreens - they have candy buttons, and sometimes I have to get them. Gosh, I sure miss the dime store I grew up with and the penny candy glass jars. We also roasted marshmallows in the backyard (a real campfire, not a BBQ grill) growing up in Illinois.

I grew up with those smartie-lipstick candies! Didn't know about the other ones, so I didn't know any different. Wow, I haven't seen those candies in years!!

Hi Sandy,
First of all, THANK YOU OH THANK YOU for the lovely vintage camper tags and the box-o-goodies you included! The little jar is just amazing!

I do NOT remember the lipstick candies...(not the taffy ones anyway)...where did you grow up as a wee child? Perhaps it was a regional phenomenon?

I must research said items...

Hey Sandy! I sure do remember these. I can almost remember the smell. I love all that stuff. I still remember buying a whole bag of candy for a nickle. A lot of 2 for a penny items and the gum and candy was twice as big as now too.

I have been meaning to get back to you. You had visited me and were so sweet not long ago and I left messages on several of your post but they came back undelivered, I don't know how that happened. Not even sure which post now but I saved the comments so I could send them back to you. (I know I'm a nut).

Here goes nothing:
This is so cute. Love your tag. You girls all blow me away with yourcreativity. It makes me smile too. Thanks for sharing, I love looking
at your creations. I never even look at magazines anymore.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Ohh' how I love all your goodies! This year I have just fell in lovewith red because of all you blogland gals. That was never my favorite
but I sure like it now. The little doggie is so cute. I love E's peg doll and doggie too. I have been wanting to get some oil cloth and make
some aprons. That pattern is so pretty and would look adorable with the scalloped edge.
ooxx's....Tracy :)

Hey Sandy. That is a lovely post about Memorial day and your family. Now that I'm older, when I see those pictures or even the one of my own
son, I think those were just little boys out there. It's a horrible job these young men take on but I am so very grateful to them for protectingme and my country.
Thanks for stopping by to see me yesterday.

These little whippersnappers out there now - geez! But what a deal on my sewing cabinet. I do want to paint it but have no idea what color. I'll be sure to post when it's done.

I hope your weekend is fun and safe.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Well that was my old comments, told you they were old. And I could swear I was following you but now I'm not showing up as a follower and your missing from my readers list. Well not anymore I just hit follow.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)

Sandy, You are so sweet to bring us these wonderful memories. Ah the lipstick! What about those awful wax lips? What on earth were candy makers thinking of! I wanted to let you know my check was posted today, and I returned home to find my CD in my mail box. WOW Sandy! The mail is sure fast from Arizona! Have a glorious weekend! Elizabeth

Yes, as a child I was crazy about those lipsticks, the sweeter the better. I didn't care about to much sugar or strange E numbers!
Have a lovely weekend sandy!
