Last, but not least, for your consideration is the hard-to-find "Cherry Clan" cellophane wrapper for penny candy-type sales. This could have easily become lost or destroyed over the years in my collection (I haven't always been really diligent about how I stored the small cello stuff), but thankfully it has survived.

For what it's worth, Cherry Clan remained on the shelves for a long time. I spotted a box of it on an episode of "Seinfeld" ("The Big Salad"), which dates it to at least 1994. This little wrapper may be from around that time; perhaps from the early 90s, although it could be older.

Eventually, Ferrara Pan gave up on this theme and just named the candy "Cherryheads", which is understandable, but not nearly as fun. By the way, there is such a thing as a Chinese cherry and China is known for their cherry trees and blossoms, so it was not unreasonable for Ferrara Pan to go for a Chinese theme. You just don't hear about Chinese cherries as much now as we once did in the 60s and 70s.
