1988: Sweetberry Ponies
White earth pony with bright cherry red mane and tail, blue bowl with cherries symbol.
So, logically, Cherry Treats was all about the cherries :) Shown above is my own childhood pony, bought here in the UK when I was a kid and her scent was so pungent at the time I opened her package, my father renamed her Stink Bomb on the spot. That should give you some idea of how strong the scents are meant to be!
It's worth mentioning now that there is rumoured to be a variation of Cherry Treats - in tan, with a deeper red colour hair. So far, however, I've not seen any evidence to suggest such a variation actually exists, since pure white ponies easily discolour with age and time.
If anyone has any proof of the tan version's existance as a bonafide variation, please get in touch!
