Have you seen these Super Mario Bros. candy tins???



Maybe you have, but I just wanted to take some cool pictures :-)

I did a double take when I saw these at the checkout in Bed, Bath & Beyond of all places. At first glance I thought they were cheap knockoffs-- but they are actually really nice quality tins! Sure enough, there is a sanctioned Nintendo seal on the bottom.

In addition to the 1-UP they've got a red mushroom and a ? box.

The candy is probably secondary here, but it is tasty, a little like Sweet Tarts. This was also surprising, 'cause if you've ever sampled some of the toy-wrapped treats the Far East usually has to offer, the candy is not far removed from chalk.

At three bucks, these Super Mario Bros. tins are a steal as far as collectibles go!
