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.
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:
Ginger Glazed Carrots
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.
