My Grandmother’s Purse Hard Candy


Grandmother’s Candy – A Gift of Love

How better to say “I love you” than with this collection of candy grandmothers have kept in their purses for generations. Many remember – or heard about – the Depression, the two World Wars, and other hard times when sugar was in short supply. When sugar came back, sugar-rich candy was a sign of affluence, certainty and the knowledge that everything was alright.

What’s In Grandma’s Purse?

This collection contains the hard candy favorites, enjoyed by Grandparents and handed to the children they loved best. Stored in kitchen cabinets and special tins, they were a mix of sour balls, clove balls, butterscotch drops, anise squares, cinnamon drops, Starlight mints… and more. Candies may vary based on availability. 6 ounces in a heat-sealed bag!
