The Somewhat Healthy Side of Candy: Raisinets

A rare box of Raisinets circa 1960

Raisinets have been around for quite some time and this box of chocolate covered raisins is from the late 1960's when the brand was owned by Ward Candy Company

 California raisins, Nestlé milk chocolate, melty, chewy, sweet, fruity, Raisinets are a classic concession candy.

They are great for movies because you can make them last a long time by chewing and enjoying each one individually (and even letting some of your friends munch down a couple), and they are a silent candy and therefore won’t distract you from the movie and won’t distract your neighbors either.

Nestlé wants you to know that Raisinets are not just for movies anymore and I would agree, I ate a bag just for fun and it was great.

 The Blumenthal Chocolate Company originally introduced Raisinets in 1927; Nestlé took it over in 1984. Today you can check out the Raisinets channel on youtube and watch silly videos of cartoon Raisins pretending to be real people… mildly entertaining.

There’s a lot of ways to catch some rays, but none like Raisenets.
