Squirrel nut zippers and Mary Janes.

Zero bars.

Zagnut.

Boston Baked Beans (candy coated peanuts).

Chunky bars were gigantic as were most candy bars, especially within our diminutive hands...but they really were a lot bigger back then (late 50's-early 60's).

How about the miniature ice cream cones filled with some sort of sugar fluff?

RE: Nostalgic candy from my youth
I loved the Brach's chocolate covered caramels when they came in the boxes.

You can still get Bit o Honeys in small bags at Walmart. They also have a limited
selection of Brach's in bags, but not the same as I remember in flavor.

Do you have a Stuckey's nearby or on the roads you might travel on? They sometimes
have the older candies.

There used to be a Caravelle candy bar I haven't seen in years. Much like the
100,000 Grand bars.

Nibs? Nabs? Black licorice bites. Used to like those once in a while.

I remember a rum flavored chocolate mint type. Came in a double tube shape box.
Rockwell was the name if I recall. Those were special. My mother's favorite, she only
let me have an occasional bite.

All time favorite was and is the Russel Stover's Pecan Delights. Turtles come close
but no cigar.

Regal Crown Sour Candy History
These sour hard candies that come in a roll originally were originally made in England and imported to the US in the 1960s. After being discontinued for some time they are back again. They are tart and fruity just like you remember and come in your favorite flavors of sour cherry and sour lemon. Extra smooth, each hard candy disk is still wrapped in wax paper. They are a little bit thicker than a Life Saver.

In those days we were Guinea-pigs for the sugar industry
and the creation of diabetes.
seems Pez and salted-licorice have been around forever.
