The way that pink colored plastic glowed PINK in the 1950’s, baked in super saturated, makes this Mr. Peanut cup my favorite over the red, blue, mint green, beige and yellow ones I also own. Not that this is the rarest piece of Mr. Peanut memorabilia but it always reminds me of weekends as a kid when I was allowed to change the water it held during the week to Kool-Aid or double shot Bosco spiked milk. I’m going to toast my youth now.

    Wow, that is so rad. There’s something special about drinking out of a head shaped cup, I know it has to be part of the appeal to the whole Tiki craze of the 50s. Personally I love this particular mold because it’s so much more creepy and lifelike than the more modern cartoony character design.
