Boston Baked Beans, Jelly Beans, Candy Corn, Peppermints. Some kind of hard candy that had a soft fruit-flavored center. Something that looked like today's Red Hots. At Christmas, Ribbon Candy and little Candy Canes. I'm sure there were others, but these are the ones I bought.

I'm 73, and I never got a "big" bag of candy, and didn't get $2 to spend, either! I got 10 cents on Saturday, and the candy store (called a "confectionary" back then) got half of it.
