Forget the housework and mortgage and immerse yourself in nostalgia that will make you giggle at Georgie Lou's Retro Candy! Georgie Lou's specializes in childhood favorites from the past alongside candy kids love today. From Bit-O-Honey to Turkish Taffy and from Airheads to Warheads, our 800+ kinds of candy will give kids of all generations a sugar rush! If the candy doesn’t do it, try one of our 120+ varieties of unique and nostalgic glass bottle sodas or snack on a gourmet chocolate bar.  Our retro gifts give a nod to the past with a wink and a smile. Here you'll find metal signs and lunch boxes, toys and games, cards and notepads, purses and shopping totes and so much more, featuring humorous sayings or pop culture icons, such as Star Trek, Star Wars, and Wonder Woman.  We make our own delicious fudge, barks, chocolate pretzels, and other specialty treats.  We also host parties, bus tours, fundraisers, do on site events, and deliver custom gift baskets and have online shopping. You're going to love it here so much that you laugh out loud, and that's the way we like it!
