Top 10 Oldest Candies


It’s quite amazing that some of the candies we love have been around for more than 150 years! Have a read to see which one is the oldest!!!


10 SOUR SATELLITE WAFERS

These communion like wafers have a styrofoam like outside and candy pebbles inside. We know, sounds odd, but they’re super fun to eat and to watch people's faces as they discover what they’re all about. Made in 1960.
