Ahhhh, Wacky Packages.
Who back in the 1970s didn’t have their Trapper Keeper covered in the silly stickers that tried to make every product on the grocery shelf into a gross-out joke.
There’s been a nostalgic resurrection of the cards that championed products like Chock Full of Nuts and Bolts coffee and Awful Bits cereal.
A coffee table book filled with reproductions of more than 200 of the surly stickers produced by Topps was released earlier this month. On the book’s front and back covers are images of the rectangular piece of pink, tasteless bubble gum included in each pack. The dustjacket of the book resembles the waxy paper wrapped around the handful of stickers.
Here are a few of my favorites. If you want to see many more of the originals, check out this site.
