A Weird One for Monday: Cadbury’s Sour Beaner!

I love tracking down the oddball candy wrapper you can’t see anywhere else and sharing it here on the site.

With that in mind, today is a good day, bcause today I get to share a wrapper for a treat put out in the 1990’s by Cadbury’s Canadian branch — Sour Beaner.   Described as “Sour Jellybeans in Marshmallowy Nougat Covered in a Chocolatey Coating” – it’s pretty weird and pretty awesome.  It’s definitely something to behold.

Today’s wrapper is yet another CollectingCandy.com Exclusive – you won’t find an image of this one anywhere else on the internet (I checked!).  So let’s get right to the fun – here’s the wrapper:

Canada – Cadbury – Sour Beaner – candy bar wrapper – 1990’s

I gotta say, I love this Sour Beaner wrapper.  From the nutty-looking sour jellybean mascot to the lively logo – it’s a great one.  Check out the purple nougat that this bar contained – Cadbury was definitely shooting for the wild/weird-factor here, and they hit it!

Seeing sour jellybeans added to a bar makes me immediately think of Cadbury’s Wriggler, which I covered here earlier.

The 1990’s were definitely an era of fun experimentation for Cadbury, and I give them many kudos for what they managed to put to market.   The period certainly provided a couple wild wrappers to find and collect.

And that’s all for today’s post.  See you next time!
