I’m back in Nebraska this weekend helping celebrate my Niece’s High School Graduation so I’ve just got a short post for today. But it’s a fun one as we look at a flashy Super Mario Brothers bar wrapper from way back in 1989!
This one was produced by a company called Candy USA, which I don’t recall ever seeing before. It’s a pretty neat-looking offering from the early days of everyone’s favorite video game plumber. Check it out:
As you can see this one prominently features the official Nintendo licensed seal. I’d be curious to know if Candy USA produced any other similar licensed bars.
Though I can’t be certain, I’d bet that this is the first example of licensed confectionery for the Super Mario Brothers franchise. There have certainly been many since, and now that I’m thinking about it, I’ll have to gather them together for a future post.
For today, that’s everything I’ve got on this golden offering from way back in 1989.
See you next time!
