You must admit that a huge part of Halloween's appeal is the ridiculous amount of candy that floats around.  I just don't think the holiday would be that popular without it!

In honor of #ThrowBackThursday, let's take a look at what candy commercials use to look like years ago when plaid was in, feathered hair was all the rage and innocence actually existed.

If you listened to today's Z Morning Show, today's impossible question answer was Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.  Check out the commercial we played over the air below and see other vintage candy commercials from that era as well.


These commercials seem soooo long, right?  It's amazing how much commercials and product packaging have changed!

Imagine when current candy commercials will be featured in a #tbt post!
