Collecting Candy

Nothing but candy wrappers and packaging from the 1960s onwards.

JasonLIebig_CandyPublicityPhoto_October2013_B_EMail_sizedCollectingcandy.com is exactly what its URL says it is. I don’t know Jason Liebig (a New York City-based writer, editor, producer and actor), but he’s in the grip of a sweet, sweet obsession. Nothing but candy wrappers and packaging from the 1960s onwards. The about section says the site is all about the “celebration of candy packaging, candy marketing, candy history and the people behind it all.” I found this while looking for references on the old WigWag candy bar. Collecting like this is it’s own strange little subculture. Amazing graphic design all over this site, with zero irony.

This week’s Frandoms are by Brian Sheppard, EVP and ECD at Saatchi & Saatchi Canada.
