Possibility...

"Archery" Irate Circus Animal Cookies (Parody of "Archway" Iced Circus Animal Cookies.)

Package features circus animal cookies (lion, bear, rhino) posed in angry stances, having just been shot with a volley of plastic arrows with suction cup tips.  In the left foreground, a worried boy (with green, feathered cap) has taken to his heels as he worriedly glances behind him.  His bow and remaining arrows have been hurriedly cast into the air as he attempts to flee.

"Robin Hood Style"

"Oh, Cripes!  Irate Circus Animal Cookies"





- or -

"Wicked Packages" possibility...

"Alleyway" Catnip Cookies  (Parody of "Archway" Gingersnap Cookies.)

Package features a "shady" stray cat (standing on top of a stack of two or three large cookies) wearing a bowler hat and overcoat. Behind him, dented metal trashcans are lined against the brick wall of an alley.  One side of the overcoat is open, revealing rows of smaller cookies "pinned" to the inside lining.  A group of kittens is clustered at his feet, paying with fish (in lieu of dollar bills) in their outstretched paws.  Several more fish are protruding from the tomcat's pockets in which he has hastily thrust them into.

"Homey Style"

"Fishy Catnip Cookies"





- or -

"Wicked Packages" possibility...

"Ashtray" Smokedmeal Cookies
(Parody of Archway" Oatmeal Cookies.)

Box features three cookies stacked flat on top of each other.  The top cookie forms the rim of a "cookie ashtray" containing a bunch of cigarette butts (similar to the "brownie ashtray" pictured below) which have been snubbed out in the cookie.  Other butts and cigarette ash are also laying around the bottom of the stack.

"Menthol Style"

"King Size Smokedmeal Cookies"

Possibility...

"Strange Berry Blend"

"Celebrating 30 Years!"

You misspelled the real name. It's Chobani.

Thank you, Mikecho!  Mistake corrected!

(For a minute there, I thought you were going to point out that this product had been parodied before.  And what's weird is, somewhere deep down, I think it was, and yet I can't find the parody anywhere.  If you happen across it, please let me know.  You and a few other forum members seem to have an encyclopedic memory of all things Wacky.  Only wish I did, too.  What I actually need is an alphabetized list of all of the real products that have been parodied before that have made it into the official Wacky pantheon.  Which would be interesting for other reasons, as well, aside from being a basic reference source.)

Possibility...

"Gardenelli's" Sparkling Spiders  (Parody of "Martinelli's" Sparkling Cider.)

Bottle is loosely flanked on both sides by small sprigs of white and pink apple blossoms.  In the foreground stands a champagne glass, as well as a red apple resting at its base.  Spider webs covered in sparkling dew drops drape down from the top of the bottle to the blossoms, leaves, glass, and apple below. Small black spiders scuttle here and there harvesting the dew drops.  Inside both the bottle and champagne glass are a multitude of bubbles containing spiders both large and small.  The two gold medals feature stereotypical round spider webs with splayed spiders centered within.

(Note: Spiders aside, this would be a small work of art - atypical of Wackys - if rendered to make the product appear both appealing and beautiful as possible.  This isn't to suggest that most Wackys are not art; On the contrary, there most certainly are.  It is the contrast between the sparkling beauty and the multitude of spiders everywhere that would make the parody both startling and weird - and hopefully amusing.  It would be a helluva lot of dew drops and bubbles to paint, though!)

"Golden Delicious!"

Possibility...

"Looney Tunes" Subset

Of the Looney Tunes characters thus far, we have seen "Daffy Baking Powder" (OS 8,) "Porkay Spread" (ANS 6,) and "Bugs's Instant Rabbit Hole" (50th Anniversary.)  This being the case, why not make a subset featuring all of the Looney Tunes "stars?"







Being my time is somewhat limited with other things as of late, I am not going to post a host of possibilities in one shot, but rather one every other night or so.

So, here goes...


"Foghorn's" Coffee  (Parody of "Folgers" Coffee.)

Can features Foghorn Leghorn standing on left side, facing the right.  In his hand is a slingshot which has just been fired a split second before.  A cup of coffee has just been released from the sling (we can still see the lines of motion, as well as coffee trailing out behind the cup in a liquid stream) and is freeze-framed bonking a sleeping Barnyard Dawg (protruding from his doghouse) directly on the forehead.  Stars encircle the rapidly swelling injury.  The coffee can still features the rising sun (being roosters wake up at sunrise.)

"Brash, Rude Wake-Up Call"

"Wakes Up To 90 Pups"

"Loud Mouth'd and Overblown"

"Classic Joke"  (Or "Classic Rooster.")

"Boy, I say, rise 'n' shine, boy!"  (Foghorn, himself, is bellowing this.)

"Mild / Medium / Dark / Pitch Black"

"Looney Tunes" Possibility...

"Marv Attacks"  (Or "Marvin Attacks.") (Parody of "Mars Attacks.")

Rather than a "Mars Attacks" Martian on the wrapper, Marvin the Martian is featured holding his trusty ray gun.  He means business, and his face is contorted into a menacing scowl.  In the background are a few flying saucers and the distant planet Earth (partially eclipsing Venus.)

"Space Misadventure Technobabble Gum"

"Ack! Where's the kaboom?"  (Spoken by Marvin the Martian.)

"Free Inside!  Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator!"

Did anyone ever really stop to think that the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator is actually nothing more than a stick of dynamite?

Yes, but it's a really, really, really BIG stick of dynamite!

That's probably part of the joke, though, that this fancy-sounding contraption is just something plain and ordinary that one can find laying about the house, like an egg-beater, say, or a bull whip.

That, and Marvin's master plan would most certainly backfire (like so many of the best laid plans of Looney Tunes characters) if he were ever to detonate it.

"Looney Tunes" possibility...

"Yosemite Sam's"  Biscuits  (Parody of "Pillsbury Grands" Biscuits.)

Cylinder features a startled Yosemite Sam in a semi-crouched position with hands on knees.  Flames are coming from the seat of his pants.  Behind him, an angry and malicious Pillsbury Doughboy is holding a large, wooden match which is still aflame.  (The match is long and would be about the length of a baseball bat in the Doughboy's hands.  Also, both of the characters could be standing on top of large, buttered - perhaps even burnt? - biscuits.)

Addendum: Rather than portray the brown end of the cylinder ("Southern Recipe") as it is, perhaps it could be the top end of a wooden barrel of TNT (laying on its side) with a lit fuse protruding from the top?  I could be mistaken, but I seem to remember Yosemite Sam always finding himself in the vicinity of kegs or barrels of TNT.

"My biscuits are burnin'!"  (Uttered by Yosemite Sam.)

"8 Alarm Biscuits"

"Stubborn Homestyle"

"Rootin' Tootin' Recipe"




(From "Who Framed Roger Rabbit.")
