Easter is about kids in most families. Painted eggs, jelly beans, baskets
stuffed with shredded colored cellophane and Peeps®. But we were all kids at
one time, and for most of us our nostalgia for our youth includes the Easter
Sunday mornings when our own baskets would be full of our favorites. Candy
Crate is making this Easter special for every generation from the 1940's to the
1990's in its Easter Retro Candy Gift Box.
Purchase the Easter "baskets" by the decade your recipients were
in grade school or middle school -- for your grandparents, mother, father, best
friend... These are really special gifts, because they are not just about candy
from the old days, they are about a special time in our lives....
