Vintage Play Food from the Early 1970's

What a cute retro toy set! I've had lots of fun photographing tiny vintage toy food today and looking up some of these retro products. Some are purely made up for the child's set ... although I have to wonder about the Honour Husband line of food seen here! But there are also real products like Freakies Cereal and Pepsi Cola. Neat! I'm a big kid at heart and love finding, researching, and listing vintage toys. Here's what I found in this set:

White Eagle Chocolate on Chocolate Cake Mix - 2 boxes - some little bends
Freakies Cereal box (2" high) - has creases, bends, and tear about 3/4" one side of box packaging -- back of box has a picture of mystery prizes and reads "I wonder which free Freakie Mystery Prize I'll get in this box!!!"
Willy Wonka's Grape Nerds - 2 boxes - both have little bends and are open at top
Kolleya's Bal-larn cereal box - has bends
