One of the things I’ve often stated here on the site is that I love how collecting candy is always providing new discoveries. In the spirit of that, today’s article is about a pair of recent surprises related to one of my favorite brands — Razzles.
Back on April 2nd, I posted my All About Razzles piece. When I did, I’d assumed it was as extensive and as thorough as it could be. But in the few short months since that article went live, I’ve had two major Razzles-related revelations.
The first discovery came from this 1975 Fleer trade ad, which featured a flavor of Razzles I didn’t know they had ever produced.
Of the three packs shown, I’d never seen the Cherry variety before. It’s pretty great with it’s fun cherry mascots. And, as with all things like this – it’s now on my hunting list.
The next discovery came when a gum-collector friend of mine turned up yet another single-flavor Razzles pack that I’d never seen. This time, it was a Razzles Grape pack from a little earlier — 1973:
Seeing that 1973 Grape pack was quite a shock, especially coming so quick on the heels of discovering that 1975 Cherry variety. With those two significant new additions to share, I knew it was time to post a Razzles update, hence today’s article.
I didn’t expect I’d be coming back to this brand so soon, but where candy history is concerned you never can tell what’s going to pop up. And so, with some excitement, I can share with you my newly-revised Razzles timeline. Here it is:
And that’s all for today. See you next time!
