Here's another super special candy collectible -- a Bottle Caps wrapper from Sunline / Breaker Confections.
I have memories of this particular package, buying them at a certain store where we lived in 1974. One of my earliest specific candy memories, I'd say.
I had long wanted one of these beauties, and was happy earlier this year to find a 1980s version that I posted here previously. Then I got this 1970s wrapper about a month later, and from a different source.
The lady that I got this from told me that she saved it in "late 1972 or shortly thereafter". So I'm calling it 1972-1973 and wondering if this might be the very first Bottle Caps wrapper design. I've found through the US Trademark office that Bottle Caps were introduced in February 1972 (tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?regser=serial&entry=72417187).
On back is the flavor line-up at the time -- Root Beer, Orange, Cola and Lemon-Lime. They would later add Grape, remove Lemon-Lime and then add Cherry. I do remember enjoying the Lemon-Lime flavor as a kid.
1972 - 1973
