Who's Flooding Riverdale with Free Snack Packages?? Find out in WORLD OF ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #48
She's one of my favorite D-List Archie Comics characters. Don't ask me why. She's up there with Archie 1, Cosmo the Merry Martian, Super Duck, and Catfish Joe in my book. I keep thinking that there are some really great stories involving Toni Topaz, but she doesn't do much more than show up. But she shows up a lot on the various Archie Comics covers and I'm okay with that -- understanding that lots of other Archie fans are puzzled by her continued presence!
Back to the story...
Archie receives a package filled with all sorts of snacks. He has no idea where they came from, but assumes that somebody -- most likely Betty -- decided to give him a daily supply of new treats. And it's not just Archie. Everyone is getting them. Moose is. Dilton is. Toni Topaz has them. Reggie, Roni, Chuck, and all of the New Kids. Everyone is gorging on free snacks from some mysterious benefactor:
Except that they aren't free snacks. Somebody took out a subscription for these daily snack and now the bills are arriving in the mail.
Buy one, get one free?? I think you can figure out who's behind these mysterious snack packages!
I listen to a lot of podcasts everyday. Some are political. Some are LGBT-related. Some of faith-driven. A couple of them feature old-time radio stories. But several of them feature advertisements featuring mail-in healthy snack packages. I cannot remember then name of the brand for the life of me, but this story definitely reminded me of that sponsor (sans the sponsor's actual name!)
