These days we hear plenty about how unhealthful candy is. While there is definitely something to say for consuming sweets in moderation (and brushing your teeth afterwards), we can’t imagine life without candy. There is something awesomely charming about old advertising like this 1930s Baby Ruth ad in which candy consumption was actively promoted as a valuable source of energy.
Delicious and energizing.  What more could you want?
