Jaws (Breakers)

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the candy aisle...

Continuing yesterday's theme of candy containers, I present this 1981 "Jawz" (not "Jaws" so don't sue us) candy container, complete with original candy. I found this at the same sale as the "Chug-a-Can".

Be A Schlepper

The late '70's and early '80's were the golden years of gimmick candy, and I was a sucker for them.

From Pop Rocks to licensed candy bars like the Reggie bar to sweet tarts packed in every variety of container (coffin, sarcophagus, lunchbox, trash can, fire hydrant, locker, you name it) I eagerly handed over my quarters and gobbled them down.

I found this empty (sadly) container at an estate sale among a miscellaneous box of smalls.  I instantly recognized the Wacky Package-esque parody, but not the container.
