For over fifteen years, your purchases of classic and nostalgic gum and candy varieties from
our store actively worked to maintain demand for the products. This
helped to ensure that the companies, many of which were still small,
family operated endeavors, were able continue production. Additionally, proceeds from
your candy and gum purchases helped to fund our work researching, locating, and
growing rare seed varieties that are threatened with extinction.
Fifteen years ago when we started offering classic confections to our gardening
customers, we were one of the first online "candy stores" specializing in
nostalgic brands. As they became popular, more and more companies popped
up. As a seed preservation organization, it no longer remained feasible
for us to compete in the candy business.
Thank you to all of you who have supported our seed variety preservation work
through the years with your candy and gum purchases!
