These old images, you can usually find some of the products but not all. And I was able to find some things, but only a few samples or just a single sample. Like I never heard of Roly Poly chocolate and only found one wrapper. I couldn't find the Krackel 1 cent box, yet I was able to find a fancy Hershey chocolate box on the left.
Things like comb and barrette displays, I couldn't find the exact ones but did find versions from this era and based the colors off that. Most printed items seem to use either a 2 or a 3 color palette. They like blue, and in this case red, white, and blue.
I have no idea what that candy is in the cow shaped holders. It looks like candy corn and yet not, so I gave it a purple look. Because I found Caster candy corn and it was purple, but I don't know if they had that in the 1940s. It's June by the way, so the candy is very old.
Flavor Aid is like Kool aid only without the sugar.
