Souvenir Friday- Candy Palace Candy Box 1950s
From the 1950s comes this nicely illustrated candy box from the Candy Palace. The box once held an assortment of chocolates. I wonder if everyone grabbed the milk chocolate chews first and left the dark chocolate mincemeat for the end? The graphics are pure 1950's showing the attractions in simple line drawings and the character heads as seen on the souvenir maps. The character choices show that during this time many of what we now consider minor characters were still well known. Of course on the front is Tinkerbell and Jiminy Cricket with his Be My Guest badge. On one side is Dale, Pinocchio, Dopey and Doc. On the other side is Figaro, Bongo, Minnie and Practical Pig. On the shorter ends we find Mickey and Goofy and on the other end is Huey and my favorite Mr. Toad.
