United States - Dairy State Foods

Here are two paper buses that double as containers for animal crackers - or vice versa. The bus in the foreground dates from 1964; the latter, nearly identical in form, is from 1993. Both were made by Dairy State Foods, Milwaukee, WI. The newer bus holds slightly fewer cookies, though, in the grand American tradition of shrinking packaging. These paper buses are interesting cultural artifacts; the passsengers of both buses are animals!
