"Ribbon candy and Christmas at Aunt Tillie's house bring back memories of the 1960's. Maybe I liked the ribbon candies because they were bigger than any other piece and lasted the longest or maybe I liked them just because they were from Aunt Tillie's candy jar! Or maybe it is the gentle "wave" of the curls that so fascinated me with this piece of candy - it was more like an art form than something to eat. However, after marveling over it, the sugary taste was a fine memory also! ~ Margaret from Iowa" _oldtimecandy.com
Hard candy in many bright colors and flavors, extruded in uniformly waving strands, folded back on itself several times and cut into pieces. A popular Christmas candy especially in the 1950 and 1960s.
