Amazon.com and the 80's

Anyone who's ever ordered off of Amazon.com knows that they then make a page with a list of things people who've bought what you've bought have also bought.

My complaint is this: SOMEONE GET THE FREAKING GREY'S ANATOMY SOUNDTRACK OFF OF MY LIST! SAME WITH THE O.C. SOUNDTRACK (#billionity)!

I like to pretend I have good taste, and those... things... on the list is making me shudder.

I was also screwing around, looking up various 80's compilation CDs, visited some lists, and found this: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0002R5Q1Y/ref=cm_bg_d_25/002-2759022-7558465?v=glance
That's all well and good, but someone explain how the following candies are considered retro?:
Atomic Fireballs, BitOHoney, Mamba, Bubblicious Gum, Candy Necklace, Fun Dip, Bottlecaps, Wonka Pixy Stix, Bubble Gum Cigarettes, Candy Cigarettes, Apple Heads, Lemon Heads, Charms Blow Pops, Saf-T-Pops Lollipops, Sweetarts, Now & Laters Assorted Classic, Wonka Tangy Taffy, Fun Gum Wax Fangs, Pop Rocks, Zotz Sour Fizz, Runts, Astro Pops Original, Zours, Shock Tarts, Jolly Ranchers, Slap Stick, Mike & Ike & Dubble Bubble Gum.

That ain't retro! Those are things from my childhood! My childhood wasn't long enough to be retro!

EDIT - BWAH! "Dogman of Attica", in re: an inmate running a fighting-dog ring from prison.
