Halloween Candy - Weeny Witch Parties

Your favorite brand of skinless frank. Does anyone really have a favorite brand of skinless frank? Of course now nobody really buys skinned franks - you know, the kind that have that red wrapper that has to be peeled off before you can eat them? Well, in the 50's there apparently was a need to promote skinless franks over the skinned kind - a veritable turf war.

As was common in that era, the manufacturers put out a promotional booklet extolling Halloween parties with skinless franks. They even advertised the booklet in magazines with little cutout masks. I'm trying to imagine wearing a mask cut from the pages of Life Magazine. Still no luck...
