Retro Video Game Candy

At my local used video game store, I ran across the following shelf full of retro video gaming candy goodness!

Each of the three containers cost around five bucks and contained a few handfuls of colorful mints. We ended up buying one of each, one for each of the kids and one for me. My son, a fan of Super Mario Bros., took the Nintendo controller. My daughter wanted the Pac-Man shaped container. That left me with the one I wanted anyway, the Atari 2600 joystick.

  1. These little candy containers are awesome. Last time I found these at a hole in the wall store, I purchased a few just because. I never did try the actual candy, but they do look cool on the shelf in my game room.

  2. The candy is actually okay, though the Pac-Man candy is…odd…and meant possibly for people with healthier teeth than mine. Ha, ha. Stay away from the Ghostbusters Sour Green Slimer candy though. Blech!

  3. @Payton: The store is called Vintage Stock. It’s a chain that (I believe) mostly exists in the midwest/southwest. They have games from Atari 2600 and Intellivision all the way up to modern stuff. They also have new and used records, sports cards, and my favorite, TOYS!
