Peters Smurfee Ice Cream Wrappers

A few years ago I posted the Milk Bar store display for “Smurfee” Smurf ice creams, now here are three wrappers from that same 1979 release.

 

I’m not sure why the wrapper above is in landscape while the two below are portrait. Possibly the difference was between those purchased in Milk Bars and those purchased in take home packs.

Either way, I love ’em!

Peters Smurfee Ice Creams

Licensed Australian Ice-Creams

Smack bang in the middle of the golden age of Aussie Ice Creams came the double barreled inventively titled Smurfee, courtesy of Peters / Pauls. This is the store display / advertising card from the 18c treat from 1979.
I’ve heard that there are no naturally occurring blue foods, and that blue is colour most likely to nauseate, but I’ve got to tell you that I can remember the taste of these things like it was yesterday, and that taste was good.
I’ll resist from all the standard Smurf jokes regarding Smurfette’s position as the only lass in the village, but when you look at the Smurf on the right and read the speech bubbles you just know something unnatural was going on in that forest…
