Welch's - (Chocolate) Sugar Babies - candy package - 1950's 1960's

Ferrara Pan - Lemonhead two-sided candy box - 1970's
Here's one of three different Lemonhead boxes I have. This comes from the "Munktiki Collection", a large lot of consumer goods packaging saved and stored by Californian Paul Nielsen during the 1970's. A collection I recently acquired and will be documenting here. For more on Paul's current activities, check out www.munktiki.com.
