Gum Ball Insert Cards

Another kind of vintage packaging I love is gum ball machine insert cards. Artists went wild in a way they never did with shelf candy packaging.

Look at the Ding-a-ling. What inspired that? Does the gum taste like carp?

You can see more here. If anyone knows of other collections or archives, please let me know.

That smell? Why, artificial flavor of course!
