Today is Mother’s Day and I’m happy to be able to mark the holiday with a few properly-themed candy wrappers. While a lot of candy is probably given out on Mother’s Day, it is near-impossible to find any of it specifically packaged for the holiday. But in recent years Russell Stover has released special Mother’s Day overwraps for their assorted boxed chocolates and Whitman-branded Samplers. Let’s take a look.
Much like candy themed for St. Patrick’s Day or Thanksgiving, candy packaging for Mother’s Day is not easy to find, but fortunately for us there are a few. Russell Stover and its subsidiary Whitman have given us six different Mother’s Day box wrappers in the last couple of years and here they are:
That’s all of ’em. In addition to these wrappers for small boxes, I know that Russell Stover utilized the same designs for larger boxed assortments also themed for Mother’s Day. Beyond these six and their larger counterparts however, I don’t recall any other time I encountered candy packaging specifically geared toward today’s holiday. Seems like a missed opportunity, but at least we have these.
That’s everything for today and our enthusiastic acknowledgement of wonderful mothers everywhere. Have a great day, Moms! See you next time!
