Thank goodness artisan confectioners make marshmallows. The “real” ones taste nothing like the spongy, cottony commercial ones. Photo courtesy Plush Puffs.

Old Fashioned Candy

The Best Gourmet Classic Candy: Oldies And Goodies


What kind of old-fashioned candy do we review? What Grandma and Grandpa ate when they were kids...when candy was made out of natural ingredients...and now, thanks to artisan producers, has been restored to that glory. Old-fashioned caramels, caramel apples, fudge, hard candy, licorice, marshmallow, peanut brittle, peanut butter cups, pralines: We’re always on the hunt for the best. If you want to recommend the best old-fashioned candy, send us a note.

Nibble Tip

Treat your friends to excellent cupcakes and then let them decorate the tops with old-fashioned candies. Nothing from the kids’ candy stand—go to a good candy store and buy top-quality mini-nonpareils, gum drops, and other treats (or go to and buy direct). Old-fashioned candies and old-fashioned cupcakes are a match made in heaven.
