PB Max was a delicious treat first put out by the M&M/Mars company in 1989. I loved the candy itself, but it also had a striking wrapper design, and as a collector I’ve coveted adding one to my collection for some time, and this week, I did.
I finally tracked down a PB Max wrapper (an unused proof version of one, actually) from its 1989 introduction. And boy is it a pretty one.
M&M/Mars have issued some of my favorite candy bar wrappers over the years with striking, bold designs. I put the PB Max wrapper design right up there with that of my all-time favorite, the Marathon bar. It’s another discontinued classic.
That’s all for PB Max – just a short post today.
