Unboxing the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Meal Kit from Retro-Daze

My great and generous friend Tony from Retro-Daze sent me a “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Meal” kit, and once I saw the box, I just knew I had to do an unboxing video. I’ve never received anything from Tony that wasn’t absolutely great, so I was really excited when I saw the box at the post office.

When you’re done watching the video, you really should give Tony a visit. He runs Retro-Daze.org, which features a great cast of writers sharing tons of nostalgic memories. Also, head over to the Retro-Daze YouTube channel and check out the hit series, RD’s Retro Detention, as well as the interactive Retro Manic board game.

Ok, enough stalling, I’ll let you watch the video now.

Brach’s Turkey Dinner Candy Corn Review

Brachs has been a big name in the candy industry for generations. They’ve been the suppliers of some of the most iconic Halloween and Christmas candies on the market year after year. And not just for the holidays, but throughout the year as well. Hell, one of my favorite things to do at the grocery store when I was a kid was to stop at their spinning rack called Pick a Mix. It was filled with bins of all different kinds of their candy. You’d fill a sack with whatever you wanted, and then purchase it by the pound.

But innovation had not been their strong suit for quite a while. They’ve been quite comfortable continuing to roll out their big hitters year after year. Until 2020 that is. This year, they unleashed Turkey Dinner Candy Corn on the world. A bag of candy corn featuring a variety of flavors, all centered around things found on Thanksgiving dinner tables each year.

The flavors include:

  • Roast Turkey
  • Stuffing
  • Ginger Glazed Carrots
  • Green Beans
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Sweet Potato Pie

Well I finally got my hands on a bag of this stuff to try (thanks @rd80s), and I filmed a video review of it for The Retro Network. I thought the folks here at Retro Ramblings may want to give it a look as well, so here you go.
