Mason - Cherry Cocoanut - candy bar wrapper - 1950's 1960's
Mason is a company best known these days for creating Dots candy, and Black Crows. Those are still around, though nowadays made by Tootsie, I believe. Mason did make all kinds of bar candy, though, too. This being one of them.
I have looked on the net but can't find any info about a product called (I think) SuperMousse.It was sold in the dairy/Ice cream dept and was a small flat tub of light mousse.Once eaten,the carton could be used as a mold as it had a picture on the base.(I remember making a plaster of paris paperweight with one that had an alsatians head on it).Anyone remember these and was that the name? I assume they were Walls/Lyons maid or Birdseye. any links? Cheers:D
UK - Cadbury - Shortcake Snack candy bar wrapper - 1970's
This is a nice, basic Cadbury Shortcake Snack bar wrapper. This comes from the "Munktiki Collection", a large lot of consumer goods packaging saved and stored by Californian Paul Nielsen during the 1970's. A collection I recently acquired and will be documenting here. For more on Paul's current activities, check out www.munktiki.com.
Wrigley Australia - Hubba Bubba - Original flavour bubble gum wrapper proof - 1980's
I just came into a great set of vintage Hubba Bubba wrapper proofs. Though these are for the Australian release of Hubba Bubba, they are virtually identical to their USA counterparts, excepting for the "u" in flavour. As iconic a bit of 70's/80's packaging as you're going to see.
Tootsie - Banana Peels roll candy wrapper - 1980's 1990's
I don't have any memory of this candy but I love the wrapper. My guess is that it was a kind of Banana-flavored Tootsie Roll, but I can't be certain. Anyone remember these, or what they were like? Also, I'm uncertain of the vintage on these, so any solid memories as to that would be great, too.
Skittles 7 oz candy pack bag - Jack Candies - 1970's
An early Skittles bag, I don't recall when the wrappers looked like this, but it's pretty neat! Rather than the flat red background, this bag represents the rainbow of colors. I picked up this cool wrapper from my friend Dan Goodsell, during my recent Southern California trip we had some fun going through his candy stuff, and he graciously passed this on to me.
Wrigley's - Juicyfruit gum 10-cent package wrapper - 1970's
This is a great Wrigley's package wrapper - sporting the 10-cent price tag. I believe you can still get standard size Wrigley's packs for 25-cents. This comes from the "Munktiki Collection", a large lot of consumer goods packaging saved and stored by Californian Paul Nielsen during the 1970's. A collection I recently acquired and will be documenting here. For more on Paul's current activities, check out www.munktiki.com.
British Ice-Lollies And Ice-Creams 1960-1990 - Flashbak
What do you miss? What did you hanker for? Did the cider and Brandy Alexander lollies give you a taste for booze? Did you ever win that hovercraft?

Necco - Mackintosh's Rolo candy wrapper - 1970's
Due to my enjoyment of Rolo candies over the years, I've long thought it would be cool to add a vintage Rolo wrapper to my collection. This wrapper is notable and interesting in a number of ways. First, it still sports the "Mackintosh's" brand above the candy name. Rolo was an import from the Mackintosh candy company of England, and so retained that brand name. Based on examples from my pal Grickily's collection, the Mackintosh name would be off the wrappers by around 1980. Also of note is…
