GREAT SELECTION for the holidays... some of the selections such as this Old Fashion Christmas mix reminds me of my childhood and going to grandmothers house where she always had dishes set out with seasonal candy for the holidays. I hope to keep that tradition going with my family.

When was a child my mother would always talk about how much she loved the ribbon candy of her youth (in the 1920 & 30's)....so when i got old enough to shop for her, I would always head to the candy counter of our large dept store where I would stand for a long time in front of the glass case....trying to pick just the right length of ribbon candy....should I get the red with white stripes?....the green with red stripes?....the white with red and green stripes?....and the piece had to be curved together perfectly...and just the right length....then the nice lady behind the counter would put my selection in a little white box with red tissue paper cushioning the candy and tie it with a green string....my mother always ooo'd and ah'd over the candy on christmas morning....I continued the tradition for the rest of her life, though I have to admit in later years, as I got busy raising my own family, it was more likely to be a bag of ribbon candy bought at the grocery store....but she always was thrilled to receive my tribute to her childhood memories....
- This brings back great memories

My favorite Christmas candy memory is my Dad's Rock candy which is a lot like old fashioned candy mix as flavors of spearmint, cinnamon and clove come to mind. Being an engineer, my father had a unique way of pouring the candy. While most people pour the hot candy into a solid sheet and then break it up after it cools, Dad had his own method. After spreading confectioners sugar on a rectangular pan, he would create rows in the sugar and pour the candy into the depressions.
Once it was cooled, the candy "sticks" could be broken into pieces.
