For today’s post in our month-long CountdownToHalloween, I thought I’d pull a few of my more monsterrific bubblegum vending machine insert cards to showcase. At least one of them might come off a bit more silly than spooky, but I still think they’re appropriate for a Halloween post. So make the jump and get an eyeful of this fun trio of spooky vintage bubblegum vending insert cards from the 60’s and 70’s!
In previous posts on this very site, I’ve touched upon the fun world of confectionery vending machine insert cards: An early general post on them, my collection of vintage Just Born vending insert cards, as well as a colorful assortment of Leaf promotional photos that each featured their own vending insert cards.
The trio I’ll be showing today are also from the Leaf company, which isn’t a surprise as during the 1960’s and 1970’s, Leaf practically owned the bubblegum vending trade. Here they are:
Doesn’t that House of Horrors guy have a sort of green-skinned Edgar Allan Poe look about him?
I think all three of those are pretty darned cool. I really dig vintage vending machine insert cards with the monster-themed examples being especially appealing to my tastes.
And that’s everything for today’s entry in our CountdownToHalloween. See you next time!
