Souvenir Friday- Sugar, Sugar

A selection from my sugar packet collection. I know I have a few other ones around here...I like the packets as they are very ephemeral, but there was a time when these were collected by travellers so enough were saved. Not easy to find but enough are around. The graphics are great, especially the early line drawing of the castle. All are Spreckels Sugar except for the Mad Hatter which is C and H.

Everything I know about Spreckels Sugar I learned from the ads that seem to be in every Vacationland VDT posts!

You are right, these are definitely "ephemera"! I'm sure that, as another cost cuttying measure, the sugar packets at Disneyland are now the same ones you'll see at any diner or restaurant.

I sure do like these sugar packets and I love Spreckels! Major is right, they just have standard sugar packs now :-(

Thanks for this great blog, I went to several of these parks as a kid in the 70's.

Another chill of good memory as I recognize several of these packets, last seen torn in half and hovering over my mom's iced tea.

Thank you.
