Old Time Candy Decade Boxes Review

Of all the items I'm reviewing associated with the Swim, Sun, and Fun Giveaway, the box of retro candy I received from Old Time Candy was my favorite. As my dentist can tell you, I have a very sweet tooth. And receiving a four pound box of candy to try out was just heaven.
Old Time Candy Decade Boxes
Old Time Candy offers retro candy. If you are yearning for some of the candy you had as a child, more than likely you can find it here. They have things that I haven't seen in decades, and they have things that I've never seen. While they sell individual pieces of candy like 10 cents for a box of Chiclets, a great thing they offer is decade specific boxes of candy. And that is what I got to try.
The decade boxes come in two and four pound varieties. In the two pound box, there are at least 40 pieces of candy. With the four pound box, there are over 70. Above shows you what the four pound box for all decades looks like when it was first opened. They squeeze something in every inch of that box. You can also get boxes for the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. You'll remember when you first open the box as the smell triggers many memories.

Frogglez Swimming Goggles Review by JavaJohnZ
My seven-year old son is getting swimming lessons at the local pool. He constants wants to wear goggles when in the water but always struggles when putting them on. Recently, we had the chance to try out Frogglez, an alternative pair of swimming goggles with a different approach at things.

Besides the cutesy name, the key thing that makes Frogglez different is that there is no strap for resizing the goggles. You literally just pull them over your head as demonstrated in the below video.

Bear Paws Meat Handling Claws Review
I've been eyeing these Bear Paws since last grilling season. I laughed when I saw Alton Brown whip them out on Cutthroat Kitchen, called only "claw hands". I don't understand why one chef on Cutthroat Kitchen didn't buy the second paw to really hinder the other chef. With that said, this was a fun item to review.

If you've never seen these before, Bear Paws are hard plastic meat shredders you hold in your hands and then attack a whole chicken or pork butt to make pulled chicken/pork with. It looks really fun to play with, though you have to be careful and not let the kids tinker with them as toys, as they are sharp and can really hurt someone. They can also be used to lift whole turkeys and chickens out of the pan with.
