Thanks Luke! Don't expect anything from me real soon, but don't give up on me. I won't be able to resist showing this stuff to everyone at some point.

Meanwhile, take a look at this Peruvian website with a lot of cool stuff I love and collect here. It is in Spanish language, but it has a lot of great photos.

I will give you a brief guide to vocabulary:
If it mentions "Winter's," "Nestlé," "Chocopunch," "Chocolate Juguete", "Motta," "Cremino," or "Winterito" -- those are brands of chocolate candy produced and sold in Peru.
If it has "chipy" or "chizitos", those refer to Frito-Lay's brand snacks (potato chips, etc).
"Bimbo" refers to a brand of breads and snack cakes.
"Costa" is a brand of cookies and crackers.
(Nestlé also produces cereal with prizes, but I have only been collecting candy and snack prizes. Cereal is not that popular in the provinces of Peru and not always available on a regular basis, so it is very hard to collect in the jungle.)

Happy collecting,
and HAVE FUN!
Jeffrey
