Hello everyone and welcome back to another quick and fun edition of CollectingCandy.com’s Wacky Wednesdays. For today’s post I’m going to take a look at Bit-O-Money, from 1974′s Wacky Packages Series 6.
Bit-O-Money is of course a parody of the classic candy treat, Bit-O-Honey. The parody for this one is quite a lot of fun, and the whole thing works quite well. Here’s a closer look at the sticker:
Everything about this one works pretty darned good. Even the visual of $100 bills inside the wrapper makes sense, as a Bit-O-Honey bar was awfully close to the rectangular dimensions of a dollar bill.
I went through my collection and was able to find only one Bit-O-Honey wrapper that matched up well with the Bit-O-Money parody. Here it is:
As you can see, it’s a pretty close match, and may well be the exact style of wrapper that was originally referenced for the Bit-O-Money parody.
And with that, I’ll wrap up this week’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays. I hope you enjoyed today’s selection, and I’ll see you next time!
