1 lb. Honey, Tropical Blossom, Edgewater Florida

In the 1960s, before the Garbage Pail Kids and Wacky Packages, was a little company called Orange Blossom Honey by Tropical Blossom of Edgewater Florida. They packaged their honey in glass 1/5 Whiskey Flasks with crazy labels. My older brothers, Greg and Mark loved them, and had a few sitting in their room as decoration after the honey was gone. I think there is a bit of Mad Magazine influence.

I found them all at a Japanese collector site. My bottle is down on the right! I'm going to do some further research about the labels to add to this post.
