Examples of Blackletter typefaces used in Food Packaging or Food Advertising?

Hi folks,

I am looking for any examples of Blackletter typography used in food packaging or food advertisements. If you could send links or reference any examples, that would be most helpful.

Thanks!

Does beer counts as food? ;-)

No concrete examples at hand, but look out for bread and beer.
Beer counts for sure! :)

Boar's Head (deli meats) used to have a blackletter logo.

Corona and Leffe (and a zillion other) beers.

A nice one from days gone by: http://www.cassville.org/images/label.jpg

Chiclets gum, but I think the design has been changed and it's not blackletter anymore.

Blackletter really suits that bag of salmiakki candy! Weird how ammonium chloride is used for candy in Northern Europe and for cleaning everywhere else.

Would Robin Hood Flour count as Blackletter? Certainly blackletter-inspired.

http://www.bruggsmidjan.is/ uses a blackletter on their beer labels.

@Sindre - I sure don't understand how anyone can eat salmiak pastilles.

This one is nice - half way between a contemporary reimagining of a blackletter and a script, I wish I knew what it was; Minas Mljevena coffe:

And a brand of spirits I just thought of, Hungarian Vilmos Körte palinka:
