'HORROR BAGS' - Ribs and Bones packets





Here is another 2 items to the growing Horror bags archive, this time it is empty wrappers of Vampire vinegar flavour Ribs and Salt and Vinegar flavour Bones. Thank goodness for somebody hanging onto these, as normally unless you are a collector of such items they would be normally thrown away and lost for posterity.




Thanks to steve C. for the pictures.

Yeah, encore re. the backs of the packs but what a find there! Probably the only two that were'nt binned or discarded as 70's litter. I guess that just leaves 'Fangs' and.... was there a 'Bats', early on? I hadn't expected to see these again; from trash to treasure!

Well here is the back of the pack of Ribs, there is no back for the Bones pack has the pic is the front of the pack which has been cut out.

Nice, looks like a first edition! I couldn't quite make out the main text on the ribcage though - was it one of their merchandise offers?

Paul said...

Not really sure John, but I suppose it could be. I'll have to see about getting a clearer picture.

I've often thought about these crisps along the years. To see the Bones packet again brought about an excited sharp intake of breath. Many thanks!! Superb blog by the way
