Are you fighting those last-week-of-summer blues? Take a few minutes to browse the iconic images included in The Candy Wrapper Archive, a collection of hundreds of candy packages dating back to the early 1900s.

The site, which includes more than 600 candy wrappers, began from the personal collection of founder Richard Saunders, who started saving them in 1983. Arranged by brand, the collection provides a fun way to browse nostalgic wrappers, from Snickers to Kit Kat, and many in between (ever heard of Smooth Salin? Or Chicken Dinner?). Saunders' largest collections include 27 Hershey's wrappers, 25 M&Ms, 24 Baby Ruth, and 23 Payday. Have a favorite that's missing? The site also welcomes contributions.
