    More Information:
    America has been pioneers of candy and confectionery for quite some time! So much so, that we thought it would be fun to dish out candy, some as far back as the early 1900s, to see what our lovely Irish people thought!

      Just so you know.............when we were kids we would by juju b's at the movies.........Chew a bit and then throw them at the screen. Yep...........they would stick. Those damn things will pull your fillings out.

        Yeah, see, sometimes here in the states we call things "classic" when what we really mean is old and shit.

          DumDum's are ok, but the rest of those can F right off. I wish they had included Circus Peanuts which have nothing to do with the circus or peanuts. They are probably the worst American candy.

                    The company that makes the heart shaped candies with sayings on them is the same company as Necco wafers.

                      These are candies you buy in bulk that you give out during Halloween because you hate Halloween and you hate kids. These are also candies that increase the odds of you getting TP'd or egged. Someone really did their job finding a place that actually sold this candy cancer.

                        I live in America and have never heard of good and plenty or necco wafers or Boston baked beans, I will continue to update this as I watch the rest of this shitty video

                          Who ever picked these is a moron. It's like somebody went back in time and robbed a Mississippi gas station. To this person I say, " Stop being lazy or stop doing this. You're credibility should be more important to you. "

                                These are only classic because nobody ever bought them and they still have warehouses full.

                                  I like the wafers ^-^"...but that's because I'm from an area that likes less sweet things.

                                    I don't know if this is still true, but back in the day, pink Neko waffers could be lit on fire.

                                      They should have gave you Mary Janes, Mike & Ikes, Jolly Joe's, Willy Wonka candy, lemonheads.Necco wafers been around since the American civil war and are also used as practice communion wafers.

                                            Boston baked beans are from the '50's, and they were gone off then.

                                              Don't worry, American's hate those candies too. That's why they're like $0.25 each. Dum Dums are the only one anyone really likes.

                                                    Dum dums depend on flavor like peach and there is a green apple one thats good too. I actually like boston baked beans but i rarely eat them a lot of these candies are shit and gross. Try gobstoppers or classic lemonheads. And idk how candy varies through different countries but jolly ranchers skittles jaw breakers pop rocks and gobstoppers are some of my faves c: RASBERRY flavor tootsie pops are amazing and the big blow pops with gum inside n_n 😍🍭🍬🍥 🍮caramel flann isnt candy but is also delcious

                                                      I swear nobody in America buys and eats these, like you don’t go to your friends party like “aye y’all got good and plenty’s! Bet!” 🤣

                                                            These are the kinds of candy you get on Halloween when the house is being cheap. However if you were poor in the 70's and 80's you took what you could get. There are others. You really want a chewfest? Sugar Daddys.
