Halloween Candy Molded-Plastic Candy Containers
Ghosts, goblins, and witches….Oh, my!
Vintage ’50s-’60s molded, hard plastic candy containers produced by the E. Rosen Company, Rosbro Plastics and by the Kokomo Mfg Company-especially the Halloween containers- can be quite collectible. After WWII whimsical novelties were mass-produced to sell during the holidays. Consumers could find them at the local “five-and-dime” stores (e.g., Woolworth’s, Woolco, Ben Franklin). Halloween candy containers were shaped in the traditional scary characters: witches, JOL’s, cats, ghosts, scarecrows and cats.
Unbelievably, a Halloween candy container you originally paid 50 cents; could now to worth more than $400!
(I remember getting these cellophane-wrapped, candy-filled containers as gifts from my Dad and Mom, or from relatives during the holidays.)
Some years ago, I was conducting a clean-out of a hoarders house and discovered a, E. Rosen Halloween witch candy-filled container with the candy still inside the ribbon tied cellophane. Undoubtedly, the candy wasn’t considered edible. I sold it online for $175.)
