Ours weren't called charms, they were Sparkles. They only came off the market a few years ago..much to the sadness of NZ. A petition was circulated to Save the Sparkle but the candy company took them off anyway..
Charms candy! This pack is supposed to be from 1947, but the package remained much the same that I recognized it from the 70s. To this day, when I see a very particular color on an old traffic light, I say, "That's Charm Candy Green." There was no other green like it!
