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!

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 [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salty_liquorice|ammonium chloride is used for candy]] in Northern Europe and for cleaning everywhere else.

Would [[http://www.goudasfoods.com/products/misellaneous/images/612%20ROBIN%20HO...|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.

An energy drink where it's used to suggest Rockiness.

Can't believe I forgot Del Monte!

At lunch today I had a quick look around a couple of local grocery stores. Here are the ones I found:

Vika crispbread (bordeline, I guess):

Bavaria Blu cheese:

Casademont, spanish meat products (C logo only):

Ålands Kastelholm cheese (Okay, not blackletter, but I thought it interesting to include anyway):

El Antiguo brand Turrón:

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:
