UK - Mars - Milky Way 2p candy bar wrapper - 1970's
Though named the same as our own American Milky Way, the packaging for the Brits' version is different, and to me, prettier. 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.
Sunline - Triple-Pack Fun Dip - two-flavor candy package - 1976
Presented here is the earliest package of Fun Dip I've come across - from 1976. Fun Dip was first introduced in 1973, and this two-flavor, one-stick version was called a "Triple-Pack" Fun Dip.
