Today I want to jump back a half-a-century ago to share a look at a wonderful piece of Halloween confectionery packaging from the Topps company.
Make the jump and enjoy Topps’ 1960’s Bazooka Halloween Mask bubblegum box!
During last years’ Countdown I had the pleasure of showcasing a really cool multi-package Halloween piece for Topps Bazooka from the 1970’s so today it’s great to follow that up with something even earlier. If you didn’t see the Bazooka post from last year – check it out.
Though the box I have to show you today is undated, I did find a candy trade magazine clipping from 1963 featuring a similar box:
Based on that trade clipping, I’d estimate the piece I’m showing today to be from the 1960-1962 period.
The box really speaks for itself, so here it is:
The design of this one is so of-the-era with the illustrations of the kid trick-or-treating and the cut-out mask feature — I love it.
And that’s everything I’ve got to share today on this one. But I’ll be back tomorrow with more CountdownToHalloween fun. See you next time!
