Star Trek Mini-Cards - Hostess/Frito-Lay

Hostess Frito-Lay
These mini-cards (1¼" x 1¾") were manufactured by SkyBox for Canadian company Hostess/ Frito-Lay, who inserted them into packs of a range of their savoury snacks. The snack included Cheetos, Doritos, Hostess, and Ruffles. Each card or mini-poster was sealed in a cellophane wrapper.

There were 60 cards and mini-posters to collect; 38 TNG cards, 10 DS9 cards, 2 Checklist cards, and 10 mini-posters. All of these have text on the backs in both English and French. The mini-posters folded out flat to 16 times the height of a regular card, around 21 inches, and had a series of images from their respective episodes.

Randomly included with the cards, inserted at around 1 in 19 packs, were redemption cards for a range of prizes which included the following as shown on the back of each snack pack:
