More 1940s Candies
Because of the effects of World War II, the 1940s had not been a easy time as well for American
families. The war brought supply shortages and sugar was rationed. This did stop
the innovation and the production of new candies. Some iconic candies were
introduced in 1940s including M&Ms, Junior Mints, Bazooka Bubble Gum, Fun Dip,
Almond Joy, Bonomo Turkish Taffy, Licorice Laces and Casablanca! One of the most
nostalgic candy in the 1940s is the Bazooka Bubble Gum. Designed in the package
of red, white and blue, the Bazooka Bubble Gum is a true symbol of Americana.
