AYDS diet candy
This has to have been the WORST marketing disaster of all time. In the early eighties they had this appetite supressant-type candy named AYDS. Jesus christ I can't imagine a worse maketing goof up. Of course it isn't sold anymore. Ironically, the real AIDS also facilitates rapid weight loss. This picture was not taken by me but was found online somewhere.
UK - Taxi candy bar wrapper - 1970's
Fairly nondescript is this Taxi bar wrapper. 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.
