Hershey - Kit Kat - KitKat - two-stick - candy bar wrapper - early 1970's
Here's an unusual one - a 1970's KitKat wrapper, for a two-stick mini package. Not a fun-size, but a mini. I'd never come across one of these before. Pre-UPC so likely early 70's, possibly even late 60's.

LifeSavers roll wrapper - Buttermint - 1960s
This is one I really like, due to the style of the wrapper. Wonder if they were any good? Of note on this flavor: Unlike most LifeSavers, that are wrapped in silver foil, this flavor was wrapped in gold foil. They did that with a couple of their other oddball flavors.
PEZ - multi-flavor candy wrapper - 1970's
This is an iconic wrapper for the small PEZ candies that go into PEZ dispensers. This one comes from the 1970's. 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. For more on Paul's current activities, check out www.munktiki.com.
