As a kid in the 80’s fast food places had way cooler swag than the junk that’s out there now. I was a big movie buff even back then so when McDonalds, Burger King, etc came out with something movie related I had to have it.
My absolute favorite collectable was the drink glasses. Not being able to drive hindered my ability to collect whole sets, but honestly I didn’t care. I just wanted something.
I had at least one of each glass run and l took good care for them. I remember loving the Smurf set.
Fast forward to Batman Begins I was so excited to snag a few of those glasses. I felt like I was a true fan If I was able to show off my “classy” mugs,
The last ones I ever collected was when Burger King put out the Lord of the Rings goblets
I was working at the my first movie theater when one of the projectionists girlfriends got a job at BK. She knew I like the Lord of the Rings so she brought me a few goblets.
Sadly these are all pictures I found online as I don’t have these glasses anymore. I have thought many times about finding them online, but I can’t justify the price. However, when I stop at goodwill, thrift stores, and the occasional yard sale I keep my eye open.
