Think of this as my Halloween gift to you.

Some of my favorites from  The Candy Wrapper Museum.

I actually have this one by R. Crumb. Had the good sense to pay $1 for it at the now-defunct-but-never-forgotten Tower Records on Broadway. The candy bar has crumbled (no pun intended), but the package sits on my desk and makes me laugh every day.

    Oh these are wonderful. Only bad thing is they look familiar. Like I’ve actually seen them. But that couldn’t be. I’d have to be old to have seen them. Right?
