It’s Super Bowl XLVII (Superbowl 47) today, the NFL’s championship game between the San Francisco 49’ers and the Baltimore Ravens. To mark that occasion I wanted to share a few NFL and Super Bowl related Snickers candy wrappers I’ve got in my collection.
First up is a Snickers wrapper with a wonderful football graphic that offered a chance to attend the 2009 Super Bowl. I really love the football-lacing element of this design – so cool:
Next up is something pretty unusual. It’s a set of wrappers that represent every NFL team. They were offered in a loosely football-shaped package last Fall, in the lead up to football season. These were a Wal-Mart exclusive item.
Here’s what the package looked like full:
After emptying and flattening that package, I scanned it so I could show all of the graphics:
It took a lot of time and effort (and two full bags of these minis), but I finally put together a full set of all 32 NFL team wrappers. Here they are, broken down by NFL division:
That’s it – all thirty-two wrappers! Whew!
I’d like to point out that I could only find a single Houston Texans wrapper across both full 40oz packages that I bought. So this was no easy set to complete. Which means that one of the packages didn’t have a complete set. Makes me glad I bought two!
And that’s everything I’ve got to share on this Super Bowl Sunday! For me it’s time to help get our kitchen ready for Super Bowl chilli cheese dogs – yum!
I hope everyone enjoys today’s game (and the commercials, too)!
See you next time!
