The characters from Super Mario Brothers have received a number of licensed confectionery treatments over the years. I had the pleasure of covering one of the earliest back in May when I discussed Candy USA’s Super Mario Bros. bar from 1989. Today I’m going to take a look at the rarely-seen follow-up to that first effort with a trio of chocolate bars licensed from Super Mario Bros. 3!
Candy USA is a company that I wasn’t able to dig up any solid information on, but appears to have been built around pop culture licensed bars. Beyond their first Super Mario Bros. bar, back in June I also shared Candy USA’s World Wrestling Federation bars, so it’s neat to uncover and fill-in more of their licensed product lines. Hopefully there are even more out there to discover.
For today however, we’re looking at Candy USA’s Super Mario Bros. 3 bars and here are the trio of wrappers I recently acquired for them [Note: Just a reminder that these wrappers are CollectingCandy.com exclusives – that means you won’t find images of them anywhere else online!]:
Each of the Super Mario Bros. 3 wrappers featured game tips on the inside and here are what these three contained:
I remember how much of a big deal game tips and tricks used to be in the pre-internet days. Must have been a solid selling point for these.
And that’s everything I’ve got to share on Candy USA’s Super Mario Bros. 3 bars from 1990. I hoped you liked seeing them.
As I mentioned at the top of today’s post, there have been a number of confectionery treats based on the Super Mario license over the last 25 years. Though I don’t have a great wealth of them handy to show, I did just pick up one that’s on shelves right now. I thought it would be good to close with, as a way to showcase how timeless this license has proven to be, even in the world of candy. So here it is, from the 3-Dees Gummies lineup is their Super Mario boxed offering:
And that’s everything for today’s post. See you next time!
