Humans will always be in love with everything nice and sweet. In fact, the way we crave for anything sugary is something inherent and inescapable. This is probably the reason why people from all ages are such candy fans. Admit it or not, we all love candy and this is probably the reason why these adorable sweeties never go out of trend. For as long as we’re around, there will always be candies in the world. Wholesale or retail, there will always be a market for these goodies. And when it comes to satisfying that sweet tooth, retro sweets are always on top of the list.

We’ve had great friendships over these sweet tooth adventures and we’ve had such great memories of that local candy store that almost felt like our second home. In short, candies were and are very much a part of our lives and there is quite an interesting history behind this.
This human candy craze started with our prehistoric fathers stealing honey from beehives which was quite dangerous but quick to satisfy their sweet tooth cravings. From beehives, man started to enjoy the sweet juices of plants like sugarcane and corn while mixing them with water, fats, nuts and even chocolate. This eventually laid down the bricks for all the candy varieties we know today. Then and now, man always knew what to look for in candy which is simply a sweetness regardless of the ingredients used.
Familiar sweetness is,of course, more appealing such as what those traditional sweets offer. These days,we want to munch on on our Caramacs and suck on our Jumbo Banana Split Lollies because they’re sweet both to our tongue and our memory. Just one mouthful of jelly beans is enough to make us travel back to those days when we stood with wide-eyed joy at the counter of our favorite candy store while trying to decide which of those goodies were on our own personal sweets menu for the day.
Indeed, man has come a long way when it comes to satisfying his insatiable sweet tooth. Today, those unforgettable retro sweets are a celebration of all things sweet and lovely.
