In the spirit of Halloween, “Reminisce” magazine has compiled seven nostalgic vintage candy ads from the 1950s, for the little kid still in even the most mature of grown ups.
They include a Saturday Evening Post ad for Life Savers from 1950, when the candy was 5 cents; a 1952 advertisement for 10-cent toasted almond Mars bars, touting them as “The Candy Bar that’s Like a Chocolate Nut Sundae!” and a Tootsie Roll ad from 1954 that claims the “Tootsie Rolls and TV” are “the modern child’s idea of pure joy.”
“In most of our issues we run an ‘ads from the old days’ section. Our readers really love the simpler advertising back in the day,” says Leah Wynalek, associate editor.
