|The picture shows both sides of this Leader Candies Howdy Pardner Surprize Bag. Originally it came with 3 toys with the candy, similar to Cracker Jack. The front of the bag pictures a boy on a horse and reads:|
Howdy Pardner Western Style
3 Toys Plus Candy
Leader Candies Inc. Brooklyn, 37, N.Y.
The back has some interesting text. It has the ingredients and weight (1/8 oz.) but it also has this statement:
Privilege To Examine Before Purchasing
I can't imagine what the stores today would be like if this was possible! The bag is not dated but believed to be from the 1950's. It measures 3-1/2" x 7-1/2". It is in very good condition with discoloration on the back and a small tear that is on both the front and back in the same spot.
