Rascals Candies - 1989

From 20 years ago - 1989 - here's a neat Rascals candy bag. At that time Rascals were made by Warner-Lambert and featured some fun little fruit characters. I inserted a piece of white paper for the scan so the back side didn't show through the clear window.

 

I especially like the watermelon character popping up from the water.

 

I believe Rascals were not only fruit-flavored but fruit-shaped, too, like Wonka's Runts candy. A web search shows me that they are still being produced.

 

Here's a modern look at their fruit mascots on this page -- abcvendingproducts.com/images/500/CON21074.JPG

 

And here's an old Rascals candy commercial -- www.retrojunk.com/details_commercial/5688/
