This is one of the original 1970′s Wacky Packages that I have especially strong memories of. I’m not sure if that’s because of the year it was released, or if it’s because it parodied such an innocuous product and package from the era. In the 1970′s, Jujyfruits were everywhere, so my guess is that this one resonated with me a little more than some of the others. I think the candy box Wacky Package stickers always struck me a little more than the others.
Here’s a close-up look at the 1970′s box parodied as well as the parody sticker:
I like how they really put every design element of the original box to work on this one. Turning Jujyfruits into melting junked out cars is a bit out of left field, but it works.
And that’s everything for today’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays. See you back here tomorrow!
