Today I’ll be covering a group of currently-available wrappers from the Mars company; the 2-to-Go selections.
As I’ve shared in the past, though I focus most of my efforts on vintage candy packaging, I do like to keep up with what’s currently available, and get an example of each new brand and design that comes out. But there are lots of little variations that I’ll see, and I don’t always decide to get them all. At first, I didn’t feel the need to pick up the 2-to-Go wrappers, but I finally decided they warranted saving, and documenting.
I can’t say exactly what finally convinced me that I needed to try to get all of these. Maybe it was the race-car like 2-to-Go banner, or the interesting “twist-to-close” feature touted on the wrappers. Or maybe it was my look back at what was saved within The Kallok Collection; a lineup of Hershey brands all with “20% More Candy”, which was a fun little set of wrappers to see. It might have also been that when I saw the 3 Musketeers 2-to-Go size, it looked wildly odd at double-length.
Whatever it was to finally grab my attention, I figured I should get them and spent the last few weeks doing just that. Today, I get to share the wrappers with you.
I managed to find nine different variety of Mars brands represented, with a few opting for a 4-to-Go, due to their normal sizes already offering two. When laid out together, they’re pretty cool to see. So, let’s get to it:
That’s all of ’em, or at least all I’ve come across so far. If someone out there spots one I missed, drop me a line and let me know.
And that’s all for today’s post. See you next time!
