Trend's Stinky Stickers may have been the most common scratch 'n' sniff stickers, but there were a lot of other great smelly stickers in the 80s. One of my favorite series was Creative Teaching Press' Mini-Maxi line. Each pack featured one large "maxi" sticker and 26 small "mini" stickers. The mini stickers came in four different designs. I managed to collect at least one of each scent.

Here's Dancin' Donuts (smells like cinnamon):

It's Cool Cola:

The Candy Apple Quartet:

Choco Bear:

Some assorted minis including peanut, watermelon, cherry, banana, coconut, and pineapple:

To see the other Maxi designs check out Bubbledog's CTP guide (scroll down for Mini-Maxis). The one I'd most like to add to my collection is Mr. Coco Nut, who looks like Groucho Marx, a clever nod to the Marx Brothers' 1929 film The Cocoanuts.
