PCE2008 lists the 24 cards from the first series (Warner Bros., 2001). To provide a guide to what the cards look like across the various series, this is #5 from the first series (artwork fronts, black borders on the backs).

I should add that that this card comes from the first set released in the U.S.

I bought the first series at Bookstores, Borders and Barnes and Noble years ago. I recently saw the first series on sale at Barnes and Noble. At the 5 Below in my town, they sell the first series as well as the new ones. Price is$2.99 per pack, not bad to pay for an insert card. Candy is chocolate with rice krispie type cereal added, quite tasty.

PCE2008 lists the cards in the second set - just 12 cards. This is card #5 (artwork fronts, purple borders on the backs). For some reason the date wasn't marked on the cards in this set but that seems to be another way to know you have a card from the second set.

PCE2008 doesn't list the third U.S. set so I assume that was released sometime after 2007. I have seen pentagonal-shaped cards that were included with other candy packages (from the UK?) and have read that cards were also inserted with candy in other countries (Japan, New Zealand, etc.) and at least one other limited edition set. Standard shaped cards were available in the U.S. again by 2017.

While writing this post, I looked around and saw a couple of cards from Japan dated 2004 with red backs and Japanese and English text.

What do the cards from the third U.S. look like and when were they released (cards dated?)?

I was in a local World Market store today and was on my way out when I noticed a box of the Chocolate Frogs for sale. I hadn't seen any since late last year. They were $4.99 per pack at a candy store then but today they were just $3.99 each so I bought a pack and got a white-bordered "Merlin" card. It's from the 2020 set - marked "s20" on the back. The expiration date on the pack is for late next year so I ate the candy. Several hours later, I feel fine.

I tried to pick up more of these yesterday but they've sold out. There was most of box last month but then most of the packs were gone the next time I went.
