Congratulations Michelle, you are the winner of the Gifts A GoGo Flashback to the 1980s Giveaway. We will be sending you the Retro Blow Pop Lunch Box. Thanks to everyone who entered , sent pictures, and shared your memories of the wonderful crazy 1980s. Some things you mentioned I completely forgot about like mood rings and banana seats.

We would also like to say Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there. Enjoy your day!
Flashback to the 1980s Giveaway is now closed. We have a fun week in store for you at Gifts A GoGo! We will revisit the 1980’s with some fun flashback posts here on the blog. It will be “like totally awesome”. So let the fun begin with another fantastic giveaway from Gifts A GoGo. We will be giving away the Retro Blow Pops Lunch Box filled with candies many of us will remember from the eighties. I wish we could have included a can of Aqua Net Hair Spray; I can’t tell you how many cans of that stuff I went through. Do they still make that? It was all about how high that hair could go back then. All you need to do is post a comment on the blog telling us something you remember from the eighties. It can be anything. Did your hair reach all time heights? Was it a certain candy or TV show? For those of who were not around in the eighties, just tell us your favorite candy. For me, it was all about 1980’s fashion. I have a picture somewhere of myself with leg warmers and the hottest pink earrings you have ever seen. If I find it, I just might post it. If anyone is brave enough, feel free to send us a picture, but only if you don’t mind several thousand people seeing it. That is not required to enter, but it would be fun. Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are always looking for retro and nostalgic candy that is hard to find to add it into our designs. Sadly, some sweet old friends are just not available nowadays. Two of the best candy bars ever made were the MilkShake and Butternut. These were both made by Hollywood brand which is now owned by Hershey. Maybe someday Hershey will make a limited edition of these and then we can have a tast of the 1960s again.
Some of our fondest memories of childhood always include sweet memories of candy and chocolate. We at Gifts A GoGo have a new line of retro candy bouquets that are made with nostalgic favorites with an interesting twist. Our Flashback Candy Bouquet will take you back to the groovy 1970s with Chuckles, Pixy Stixs, Candy Necklace, Clark Bar, Wax Lips, Smiley Pace Lollipops, and we even included a pack of Groovy Playing Cards so they can play Go Fish or War! This retro candy bouquet is a great gift idea for a baby boomer with a sweet tooth or anyone that enjoys the funky 1970s.
Our first retro gift basket was the Wrights Pink Popcorn Gift Basket introduced in late 2009. The Wright Popcorn & Nut Company first made Wright’s Pink Popcorn Bar in the 1940s, the company is still making them today in San Francisco, and Sacramento Ca. Growing up in the Midwest in the 1960s and 1970s Wright’s Pink Popcorn was an indispensable part of our snack food diet along with Hot Tamales and Bubble Up. When we decided to start Gifts A GoGo, we wanted to have some distinctive gift designs that would be unique only to Gifts A GoGo. All of the founders of Gifts A GoGo are highly trained in various backgrounds including confectionary design. After several round table discussions, and some inspiration at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk with a little dose of ocean ions, the ideas just started flowing. We are proud of what we have come up with and excited to introduce them to you. Many of us remember Wrights Pink Popcorn from our youth and apparently, many of you have those same fond memories. This design has turned out to be one of our biggest sellers. It may be pink, but it tastes so good!!
