Olympic Fruit Pie Fever!

With the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics beginning, I thought this would be a nice tribute to the games that we'll enjoy over the next few weeks.

This Hostess Fruit Pie wrapper is from 1983, promoting a contest for a trip to the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Our pal Fruit Pie The Magician is in his rightful spot, waving his wand to make that contest logo appear out of thin air, covering up the customary blueberries. Poof!

Looking at the runner-up prizes on the back, I'm certainly curious about the 5,000 4th place prizes -- coupons for free Fruit Pies! Though I'll probably will never find one, I like to imagine it was something spectacular looking with the Magician on it. Ah, maybe one will turn up some day...

If you come across any other fruit pie wrappers, drop me an e-mail. I'd love to see them and know what's out there.

Olympic (Pie) Fever!


  1. Awesome piece man!! Was it Dolly Madison that had the peanuts characters on their pies? What I'd give for some of those wrappers!! My favorite was their chocolate pies.

  2. [:::] Darrin -- Thanks! Yep, the Peanuts gang were on the Dolly Madison pie wrappers. I'd love to find one of those too.

  3. These were so good heated in the microwave.
