Heide - Mexican Hats candy box - 1970
This is another gem from the candy and packaging collection I just acquired. Heide's Mexican Hats, a strong memory from my youth, made even stronger by the Wacky Packages sticker it inspired, "Martian Hats". You can see an image of that here:
A really wonderful box, and it's vintage is based on the 1970 printer's mark, though it could be from a few years after.
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.
