Taken from issue 22 of the British comic Action, dated 10th of July 1976. These were the upgraded lollies, with the ‘trace-a-face’ gimmick, which was a plastic template type stick, replacing the traditional wooden variety. Great advert, remember this one well. How often do you get to see Dracula standing next to a Walls branded ice cream freezer?? Also, how fantastic would it have been to win a movie projector with reels of horror film thrown in? Wonder what the film was – any bets on it starring a certain Vampire, and being one of the Hammer films, or one of the older Univeral horrors starring Bela Lugosi?
This is a follow up post from a lolly themed one I did a few weeks back – for that one (which includes other ads for ‘Count Draculas Deadly Secret’, go here.
