Heide - Chocolate Babies - candy box - 1970's

Chocolate Babies have been around for nearly 100 years. With a texture similar to candy corn, but chocolaty flavored, I can understand why they've been a long-time favorite of many.

 

You can actually still get Chocolate Babies online, but they come in a generic bag and I don't think they're made by Heide anymore.

 

Though the name could understandably be misconstrued to be politically incorrect today, it's a box I recall fondly from my youth.

 

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.
