OK - I have a client that is preparing for a new site launch. They do repairs and maintenance for businesses all over the country. So, they liked the Overture Toolbox that I got from Boston. I am ordering the toolboxes, but they only come with round mints.

Does anyone know anywhere of where I can find small, tool-shaped candies? The toolbox is 2.5"x1.5"x1.25", so they have to be pretty small. I thought I had seen some candy, years ago, that was small hammers, screwdrivers, etc.
But I can't find a thing. Any help?

I did find out that there are a lot of porn stars named Candy (big surprise), and a guy named Jack Hammer. <_< Incidently, his breakthrough movie was "Big Tool Time" for anyone that needed to know . . .

So, obviously, relevance is lacking (or maybe not, depending on your tastes)

Well, I can't find any on their site but you should check out www.groovycandies.com - they sell retro candy, so I expect they will know where to get some hammer shaped candies if there are any to be had.

Much more importantly, though, they sell Bazooka Joe bubblegum, Pez, Jawbreakers and all sorts of things that make me feel like I'm still eight years old.

F*** me! Bazooka Joe bubblegum's I just had a flood of memories from reading that.

Whatever happened to them? The confectionary distributors ( in the UK) wouldn't know a good thing, if it is was chewing on their sack.

I used to love those things, especially the little cartoon strips that came with them. If memory serves me well, you could get baseball caps and t-shirts if you sent in a set amount of wrappers and 5 cents!

Happy Days... :rofl:

You and me both, Rob. Sweets were proper sweets back when we were lads, eeh, by 'eck. I got one of those T-Shirts too - I was the envy of the playground. It's all been downhill since then.

haystack - close, but chocolates won't survive.
Jill may find something useful, but I need something more like sweet tarts.

Rob and Marky - man, I feel for you guys. There are a couple stores around here that still carry the "vintage" candies. They have Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum by the case load!

I usually go there about twice a year to get some Pop Rocks.

Pop Rocks ? Are they like Spacedust ? Tiny little rocks that crackle and stuff when you put them in your mouth. I used to love them too.

Pop Rocks are the new version of Spacedust.

I did watch a kid pour a whole packet of Spacedust in his mouth and wash it down with a coke... but he didn't die, as the urban legend went...

I remember seeing an episode on the Food Network about the company that made "retro" candy........

http://www.foodnetwo...5_19378,00.html

As luck would have it, they are re-airing the candy episode tomarrow night!

markymark - here's a company that sells space rocks....

Sweet dreams! :rofl:

Back on topic for just a sec...

Matt, you are probably looking for pressed powdered dextrose candy and this company makes custom orders. Might be worth looking into!

Back off topic...

My favorite extinct candy was the Marathon bar. It was sort of a chocolate-covered caramel braided thing. I've seen the promos for that Food Network special, Debra. It looked interesting! I'll have to remember to set the VCR. Goodnight! -_-

Some of the companies that make business promotional items can do custom candies, and some chocolate companies do as well. I once had a delicious chocolate Rutgers-style "R" from Thomas Sweet in New Brunswick, New Jersey. But I think these things have to be ordered in fairly large quantities to keep the unit cost reasonable.
