Christmas comes to Pac-Land

This brings back memories…memories of a time when Christmas specials were actually special and featured our favorite cartoon characters! Do they even make cartoons anymore?

Enjoy the season with everyone’s favorite video game character! No, not Mario. And not Pikachu either. No, Sonic the Hedgehog isn’t here either…folks, it’s Pac-Man!

Throughout the day today, I’ll be posting some of the best Christmas specials found on YouTube. It’s like my own TV station!!!

Candies by Boston America Corp.

Who you gonna call

Various candy items
by Boston America Corp.

I recently received a nice little package of assorted candies fro Boston America Corp. featuring Ghostbusters (“Slimer Sours”), Pac-Man (“Power Pellets”), and Nintendo (“Brick Breaking Jawbreakers,” “Superstar Candies,” and “Zelda Mints”) tins, all pictured above. As the candy goes, it is as good as any other candy out there and each person’s taste will determine what flavor suits them (“Slimer Sours” were my personal favorite). The real draw for these are the collectible tins.

Four of the five containers have removable lids, making them reusable for candy or coins or whatever other small trinkets you might like to keep in them. The Pac-Man tin, however, does not have a lid that pops off; it twists, allowing the “Power Pellet” candy to pop out a small hole in the side.

Boston America Corp. produces licensed candies and beverages for several other properties as well: Simpsons, Smurfs, Playstation, Betty Boop and even Star Trek. The collectible candy tins in particular are fun novelty products that last longer than the short time it takes to gobble up the candy inside.
