Canada – Neilson’s – Candy Time – 10-cent chocolate candy bar wrapper – circa 1965

Just a one-off for today, folks.  This one comes from mid-60′s Canada and the Neilson candy company.  It’s Neilson’s Candy Time bar.

If the name of any bar epitomizes an enjoyable moment spent with a confection better than this one, I’ve not found it.  Candy Time might even be the way I will start referring to the hours spent crafting posts for this site.  “Can’t watch a movie tonight honey, it’s Candy Time!”

For now, I’ll just send this out as a little bit of Friday philosophy;  Sometimes you gotta stop and enjoy the candy time.

For those that don’t know the Neilson’s name, you should know that up in Canada it was once as synonymous with chocolate as Hershey’s is here.  I’ll be delving more into Neilson’s at some point down the road.

But that’s all for today.  See you next time, everybody!

    Looks good, once you convince yourself that the center isn’t actually a hot dog. :-)
