UK - Cadbury's Curly Wurly candy bar wrapper - 1970's

Headlining a wonderful assortment of 1970's UK candy bar wrappers I'm posting tonight is this gem -- a vintage Curly Wurly!

 

I have a special fondness for this wrapper, as it was the UK equivalent of our American Marathon bar, and unlike the American Marathon, the Curly Wurly is still sold in the UK today!

 

I was so excited to be able to acquire this wrapper and it will soon be joining my wonderful 1970's Marathon (American version) wrapper framed and hanging on my wall.

 

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.
