Here are a few more horror/monster sweet wrappers, the Fryer's 'Eyeballs' pack and the Dobsons 'Phantom fruits' are both from the 1980's I belive, and the Monster Chewits from 1999. I forget what the 'Eyeballs' were actually like, I think they were either like the white shelled chocolate eggs or some sort of gobstopper type sweets. 'Phantom Fruits' would be like a chewy sweet which were rectangle, and Monster Chewits were well Chewits, these I belive were only out for a short time. I really like the artwork on all of these especially the Monster Chewits. The Eyeballs remind me of the type of artwork you would get on the early type of gory horror videos during the 80's. The Phantom Fruits kind of have an old look about them.

A freind was asking me if I remember something called 'Action Spookies', he said they came in a smallish box that contained a peice of chewing gum; the action spookie was like a creepy face that when you squeezed it the eyes and tongue would stick out. Anyone remember these?

Call me weird but I actually like the Phantom Fruits wrapper the best... does Dobson still produce any kind of candy in your country? I've never heard of them before.

I know what you mean about the Phantom fruits wrapper. I don't think Dobsons are still producing anything, well I certainly haven't noticed anything.
