The Six Million Dollar Man Bionic Bar – Nuff said.
Today will be a light post as I present a fantastic wrapper without much comment. Coming from mid-1970’s is the wrapper for a bar that was meant to be more health-bar than candy bar. It’s the Bionic Bar, or more completely the Six Million Dollar Man Bionic Bar.
Natural Protein Products Inc - Six Million Dollar Man Bionic Bar - 25-cent foil wrapper - 1976
Produced by Natural Protein Products Inc. of Hayward California, this striking red foil wrapper shows off a cool illustration of everybody’s fave bionic recipient, Steve Austin. This is one of those wrappers that is just so funky and cool, it transcends the typical collecting candy territory. It’s bionic!
