I don't suppose its the 1963 since that would carry the copyright on the bottom but still its a start .
Hey guys, the monster candy cigarettes in the tiny box's came out in the mid-sixties, around 63 or 64. I remember them. I have a few of the original box's, they have the date 1963 on them on an end flap. To find one today is tough, they are rare. I also have an original bag, dated 1963 that they came in. Clear bag with great graphics, originally contained 80 pieces, Glen Strange Frankenstein with house and tree in background on left, dracula shooting "rays" out of his eyes hitting frightened halloween cat, mummy comming up out of the ground, and a bat flying around. On the back, great image of wolfman and phantom. Saw it on e-bay years ago, couldn't believe one still existed! Hardly any bidders at the time, snagged it. Bag is dated 1963 Universal Pictures, by World Candy. I know you'll want pictures, but I don't have a camera to post, and really don't know how to do it anyway. Maybe someone else has a bag, or it could be found another way?

Yes any Mummy Candy box, Universal or 90's version.
I wish so bad that I could get a picture of this original bag of these candies, right now it's the only one I know of that still exists!

I remember them from Halloween trick or treating, getting many in my bag of "goodies" way back then. Back in the sixties, here in Reading, we had an A&P food store, along with an ACME, they were actually next to each other in the city on Penn Street, I sort of remember seeing the bags of them as a kid, all that great vintage (now) Halloween stuff back then, along with the great toy displays in the supermarkets on top of the food shelves! I only own 2 or 3 original 1963 boxes, otherwise, I'd let some go, but, they are really rare.

Do you guys remember a skeleton in a coffin where the bones were made of sweet tart stuff?
