For today’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays, we’re going to once again pull an entry from Topps’ recent Wacky Packages Halloween postcard releases: From the 2010 edition is Stake 5, the parody of Hershey’s Take 5.
The parody is a fun one and sports a nice vampire illustration on the package art. Monster-based Wacky Packages always end up being some of the better ones, and this is no exception. Here’s a close-up look at Stake 5:
Stake 5 is based on Hershey’s Take 5 bar, which recently underwent a package refresh and redesign. The parody is based on the original look for the bar and here’s an example of just such a wrapper:
As you can see the Wacky matches up nicely with the original wrapper and the original design elements were put to good use for the parody. Another fun entry.
That’s everything for today’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays. We’ll be back next week with another Halloween-themed entry, and back tomorrow with more Countdown To Halloween fun. See you next time!
