“Candy is dandy, but wine is divine”

"Candy is dandy, but wine is divine” is a wine saying that has been printed on many images. “Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker” (published in The New Yorker on 1930) is a famous poem from Ogden Nash (1902-1971). “Wine is divine” has been cited in print since at least 1874.

“Candy is Dandy, but Wine is Divine” was printed in the Austin (TX) American-Statesman on February 10, 1995.


10 February 1995, Austin (TX) American-Statesman, pg. C4, col. 6 ad:
Candy is Dandy, but Wine is Divine…
(Twin Liquors.—ed.)
