10 More Foods I Bought at the 99¢ Only Store With Delightfully Anachronistic Package Design That I Need You To Be Aware Of
Mallo Cup: A Closer Look
You get eight of these individually wrapped Mallo Cups in a package. Free one from its glossy plastic womb and it resembles a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, down to the scalloped brown paper cup in which it’s ensconced. But that’s where the similarities end! Unlike Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Boyer’s Mallo Cups feature a whipped creme center – literally the mallo referred to in its name. And unlike Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, a gob of that creme center tends to have bled out the bottom of the cup, stubbornly adhering it to the paper. You’ll want to suck that mallo right off the paper; it’s perfectly acceptable to do so. Why, kids have been doing just that since the mid-20th Century, probably, when this package was designed, probably!
