Classic Childhood Candies You Still Crave

Remember these? From Charleston Chews to Mallo Cups, we count down eight of our favorite retro sweets.

Plus, we've got these delicious homemade treats for you to try.

1. Candy Buttons

These sugary little bumps affixed to wax paper bring back fond childhood memories for many. They still come in three original flavors: cherry, lemon, and lime. ($1.19,

2. Charleston Chew

The chocolate-covered nougat bars were named after the Charleston dance back in 1922. These treats are especially yummy when they're frozen! ($.75,

3. Chick-O-Stick

This honeycombed candy stick filled with peanut butter and rolled in toasted coconut was originally sold under the name "Chicken Bones"! Atkinson Candy Company changed the name to its current moniker in 1955. ($1.19,

4. 5th Avenue Bar

Named after New York City's fancy address, the 5th Avenue Bar was introduced in 1936 by the makers of Luden's cough drops. The new bars don't include almonds like the original but other than that, this rich milk chocolate bar with a crunchy peanut butter center remains unchanged. ($1.19,

5. Mallo Cup

Bill and Bob Boyer started their candy career in the '30s selling homemade fudge door-to-door but it was their Mallo Cup that really jumpstarted their candy careers. Who can resist a pillowy marshmallow coated in coconut and chocolate? ($1.19,

6. Mary Jane

Who doesn't remember reaching up to the candy counter for a handful of these chewy peanut butter and molasses nuggets? Named after the creator's favorite aunt 95 years ago, these candies have stood the test of time. ($1.69,

7. Necco Wafers

Nostalgia abounds with these tasty, colorful wafers. First created in 1847 by Necco (which stands for New England Confectionery Company), our love for these treats is still going strong today. ($.99,

8. Nik-L-Nip

For nearly 100 years, kids (and adults) have been slurping sugary liquid from these cute wax bottles. If only they still cost a nickel! ($1.10,
