Absolutely priceless – my favorite so far is the “Worm Confections” packet, kids cry for it! The pharmaceutical industry was completely unregulated until the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act so a lot of wild and dangerous stuff was out there.

Don’t forget Propnomicon’s other label offerings

and of course for Halloween, who could forget the infamous Tcho Tchocolate Bar – yum yum. Made to special specifications for your enjoyment
