Tonight I’ll be revealing additional images from the gum collection of Jeff Nelson.
Before we get to that, a little update on the CollectingCandy.com field trip.
Today was the last leg of a week-long sugar-filled journey, as we visited the studio and home of legendary writer/artist, Jay Lynch. We sat down with Jay for a few hours talking comics, Wacky Packages, and of course candy. The content of that interview will be the subject of a later feature here on the site, but I did want to mention it, as it was a great afternoon.
Now, getting back to Jeff Nelson’s amazing collection.

That’s everything for today. Tomorrow we’ll be finishing up the road trip and making our way back to New York City. With any luck, I’ll be able to round out the coverage of Jeff Nelson’s collection with the interview and video footage we shot. Haven’t done any video editing for the site yet, so there’s a learning curve to climb, but with any luck, you’ll be seeing some fun field trip vids by Sunday night.
