DENVER, CO – December 26, 2011

Internet Retailer—an online magazine for internet merchants—has named one of its Best of the Web for 2012, calling the candy retailer a “sweet site.”

“Old Time Candy Co. turned an old, clunky site into a sleek, rich entertainment,” writes Bill Siwiki, Managing Editor of Internet Retailer. “And entertainment is key, as the products it sells are fun: candy from past decades.”

Praising Old Time Candy Company’s shopping experience, IR Magazine notes: “Atop the home page the tag line candy you ate as a kid draws shoppers into their nostalgic stroll in a clever way. Categories and sub-categories feature lengthy descriptions of what shoppers are getting into.”

“Old Time Candy enables shoppers to personalize the tops of candy boxes with their custom messages and images. And, recognizing that this is a perfect gift, the e-retailer offers an unusual service: a staff member will handwrite a gift card, adding a truly personal touch.”
