Theme Park Round Candy Tin
I'm a big fan of Snow White tins and this one's no exception. The compact design and nice graphic on the lid make it a keeper. This Mixed Fruit Hard Candy container was sold at Disney theme parks, but no copyright year is printed on the label.
It was distributed by Walt Disney Attractions Inc. The WDA was formed in 1971 when Florida's Magic Kingdom opened. In 2000, the name of this Disney subsidiary was changed to Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. So at the very least, we can deduce that it was produced between 1971 and 2000. A good guess would be the 1990s.
The tin was made in Germany, the candy in the US. Measures 3.875" across lid. Original retail price $3.95.
Another Snow White tin is labeled Strawberry Candy.
In addition to Snow White, two other character tins were produced and sold in a set of three.
