|The picture shows this Early Checkers Popcorn Confection Advertising Premium Clicker. This is a prize that came in a box of Checkers.|
The Checkers Popcorn product was from the Shotwell Manufacturing Company. It was a very strong competitor to Cracker Jack. So much so that Cracker Jack bought the product outright in 1926. It was continued but eventually phased out.
The tin clicker is imprinted with red and blue ink on a white background. It has an image of a 5 cent box and has a poem that reads as follows:
Of all the toys,
That make a noise,
The kids like best this
While CHECKERS sweet,
Is best to eat,
For Pa - Ma - Kid
It measures 1-3/4" wide. It is in good condition as pictured with wear.
