Retro Wednesday.....






Hi everybody...I know I did a candy bar thing a while back. But while looking for something today, I came across my "Mallo-Cup" money that I used to save in the 60's. If you saved 500 points, they would send you 10 free candy bars. These cards are probably from about 1962!
While googling a Mallo-Cup pic, I read that they still have the "Mallo Money", but now they only send you a dollar for 500 points...What a Jip!!!
Anyway...here is my Retro contribution for the week.
.
Peace...!!!

Did you ever save Tootsie Pop wrappers with the star? Supposedly you could save them and send them in and get something ... money ... a free sucker ... I'm not sure. I know lots of people who say they saved them, but no one actually ever sent them in. Besides, where would you send them? Weirdness.

I remember Mallo Cups -- but not the "money." It's astonishing that you still have it after all these years. I don't even have Monopoly money left.:)

You're from Michigan- Do you remember Be-Mo potato chip points? A local kid show in G.R. in the late fifties-early sixties made a big deal out of redeeming them...

Wow, that's amazing that you still have the play money from then. I still have a few Green Stamps, but that's about it. :D

Hi,

My name is Bob and I write a blog called CandySnob (www.candysnob.com), and my grandfather actually started Boyer Candy, so I'm always thrilled to hear of Mallo Cup fans. My mother actually has the full original set of Mallo Cup money framed in her office.

You can also get Mallo Cups at www.ilovemallocups.com

I always enjoy looking at your collections and I think it is awesome that you have kept so much from you earlier days.

Hope you are having a great day!
HUGS!

Hi Sherry...
I still have my original pieces somewhere..I always liked to be the cannon!..xox

Buff..
I'm afraid those chips never made it over to this side of the state.
We had a company called Paramount.
Their mascot was a talking potato chip named Slim Chipley..Defunct!

James...?
S&H Green Stamps?

Hi Limey...
YOU are shocked at anything I do?
hahahaha.

Bob The Candy Snob...
I really appreciate the visit to my humble little blog..
I actually liked Boyer Smoothies better than Mallo Cups and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups..
Thanks for that bit of history!!

Oh I love those things. And another one I love but cant find are the Big mint patties! My mom got me hooked on those. They sometimes have them in little patties in bags but they dont seem to taste the same.
