Getting rewarded for eating candy? Now that was a win-win (not to mention how much you could get with a dime).
From 1949 to 1955, a hero by the name of Captain Video led his rangers in the fight for truth and justice every week. This futuristic sci-fi series was a favorite of kids all around the country who wanted to join his group of rangers. So, when the following deal was offered in the mid ’50s, we were quick to take advantage of it. For sending in just two 5-cent Powerhouse candy bar wrappers and a dime, you could get your very own Captain Video Ranger decoder ring! Getting rewarded for eating candy? Now that was a win-win (not to mention how much you could get with a dime). We certainly miss those days, so it’s fun to relive them from time to time.
