Monster Match

Pepsi Monster Match (1991)
This was a pretty cool promotion.  Every pack of Pepsi or bag of Doritos contained half of a Monster Money bill.  If you matched both halves, you won a prize.  The grand prize was if you matched the Frankenstein Monster Money to win a million dollars.

The coolest part was that the back of every carton of Pepsi had an awesome horror monster poster.  I don't remember this part, but according to the bottom left corner of each of these, there was a second contest where you could win prizes if you hung these posters in your window if they were seen by a "Monster Spotter".

Very Old Veryfine

This Veryfine Fruit Juice vending machine is at the Sunoco station on Broad Street in Hazleton, PA.  It's been there for at least the past thirty years.  I'm not sure if it's still in operation.  I didn't have any change, and the cashier was staring me down when I took a photo of it, so I didn't ask.  It's also not the first time I saw vintage Veryfine in Northeast PA this year.  It must have been a big market for them.

I was shocked to find that they still make Veryfine fruit juice.  It's owned by the same company that makes Sunny Delight.  I'll have to keep a lookout for their Pineapple Orange juice.
