I love tracking down the oddball candy wrapper you can’t see anywhere else and sharing it here on the site.
With that in mind, today is a good day, bcause today I get to share a wrapper for a treat put out in the 1990’s by Cadbury’s Canadian branch — Sour Beaner. Described as “Sour Jellybeans in Marshmallowy Nougat Covered in a Chocolatey Coating” – it’s pretty weird and pretty awesome. It’s definitely something to behold.
Today’s wrapper is yet another CollectingCandy.com Exclusive – you won’t find an image of this one anywhere else on the internet (I checked!). So let’s get right to the fun – here’s the wrapper:
I gotta say, I love this Sour Beaner wrapper. From the nutty-looking sour jellybean mascot to the lively logo – it’s a great one. Check out the purple nougat that this bar contained – Cadbury was definitely shooting for the wild/weird-factor here, and they hit it!
Seeing sour jellybeans added to a bar makes me immediately think of Cadbury’s Wriggler, which I covered here earlier.
The 1990’s were definitely an era of fun experimentation for Cadbury, and I give them many kudos for what they managed to put to market. The period certainly provided a couple wild wrappers to find and collect.
And that’s all for today’s post. See you next time!
All I can say about this one is “eewww”.
Been looking for this candy bar for YEARS! Couldn’t remember what it was called, just remembered the memory of it. Thank you so much for posting the wrapper to this one! I loved this candy bar! 🙂
I LOVED Sourbeaner and wish Cadbury would bring it back. Thank you for posting the wrapper! Fun memories!
