Darlene Lacey is the curator of the Candy Wrapper Museum, where wrappers are to be enjoyed as art, nostalgia, and humor.

Darlene has been collecting wrappers since she was a teenager in the 70s. Her first book, "Classic Candy," contains over 80 photos from her collection along with tales of the rise and sometimes fall of the candy that Americans loved to eat throughout the 1950s-80s.

Darlene and her collection have been featured on radio, TV, magazines, and even a fine art exhibit. Her website has drawn over 100,000 visitors since its launch in 2003, and has inspired others to start pop culture collections around the world.
