Today it’s a fun one for Friday. This wrapper comes from Canada and I’m pretty sure the 1980′s. It’s a Cadbury “Fun Bar” which was their sub-brand of fundraising bars at the time. This is one of my favorite Christmas-themed wrappers, and I’ll explain why after a bit.
This isn’t a wrapper for an established brand, and in fact the only name on the wrapper is the greeting, “Merry Christmas” and “Joyeux Noël”. What makes the wrapper cool, and in fact what I love about it, is the version of Santa Claus it features. Here’s the wrapper:
You might have noticed upon first seeing it, though I didn’t when I first acquired this wrapper, is that the Santa is an illustration of a construction paper craft. I think it’s such an unusual design element, but one that really works.
Here’s a close-up on the Santa graphic:
You might have also noted the $2.00 price on this one. This wrapper was for a pretty large bar but even so I’m guessing that price is inflated for the fundraising aspect of it all.
And that’s everything for today’s post. It’s back to family holiday fun for me. See you next time!
