Wacky Wednesdays – Humanheads!

Welcome back to another edition of Wacky Wednesdays!  This month I’ll be pulling my entries from the especially scary series of Wacky Packages Halloween Postcards, released over the last several years.  First up during this special Countdown-to-Halloween month; Humanhead!

Released as part of Topps’ Wacky Packages 2011 Halloween Postcard series, Humanhead is of course based on Ferrara Pan’s Lemonhead candy.  Here’s the Wacky:

Wacky Packages 2011 Halloween Postcards – Humanhead

Since this was presented as part of a Halloween Wacky set, it took on a decidedly darker, more horror-movie approach, and I love it.

As this is a contemporary parody, it was much easier to track down the original package it parodies.  Here’s the 25-cent Lemonhead box that Humanhead is based on:

And that’s everything for today’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays.  We’ll be back with another Halloween-inspired edition next week.  See you next time!

Today’s post has been part of CollectingCandy.com’s Countdown to Halloween.  To check out other sites celebrating Halloween all month long, check out the official Halloween Countdown site.
