Your Comments About The Candy Wrapper Collection and Junkfood In General

Here are comments left by people like you...and my comments back (where needed!). Want to leave your own comments?? Click Here!! There have been so many comments about White and Dark Chocolate Kit Kats that those comments are on a page by themselves. However, the popularity has died down, so that page isn't updated any more. This page was last updated on 08/13/13.

Before we get to the comments, I want to tell you about the book "Candyfreak" by Steven Almond. Everybody who loves chocolate should read this book. If you can't find it in your local book store, you can get it from Amazon by clicking on the link below.

The book is part candy bar history, as Steve takes us back to Milton Hershey's days and how Hershey built up his company. You'll learn why the larger stores sell almost nothing but candy from "The Big 3" and how hard it is for a small candy company to get into the big stores. But there's so much more. Steve takes a look inside himself to see why he is so fascinated with candy as he tours several small candy companies. He shows us glimpses of his childhood candy addiction, including when he would dump all his candy on his bed and stare and stack it like Scrooge McDuck with his gold coins (I did that too!). There's also several references to Steve wondering if his candy addiction has something to do with his relative bad luck with women as far as long term relationships.

At any rate, I really liked this book. And if you love candy, you should like it too. Oh, and my glowing recommendation has nothing to do with the fact that my web site is listed in the back of the book. For my reviews of other candy books, click here.

Smooth, creamy and balanced with just a *hint* of salt in the background--Mmmmm, now I've got a craving LOL! The caramel ones are okay, about on par with other chocolate-caramel bars, just perhaps not as sticky. I found both at Family Dollar stores (and presumably similar retailers) in the USA for $1 per 4-piece pack starting at the end of April 2013. (P.S.--Flix! also does Angry Birds gummies, Nintendo gummies, etc.)"

On 05/05/13, Jeff from Muncie, Indiana, wrote: "I've been collecting candy wrappers for 20 years...but mostly ones I eat and ones that I find that are new - like limited editions and special bars to celebrate movies, etc. I have 4 Xerox paper boxes full. Plus I have bought a few oldies at flea markets or antique shows. In addition I collect old candy boxes from the pre 1970s. I especially like Halloween boxes, I found your site wonderful.

I do have one question, how do you remove candy bars w/o damaging the wrappers? I work at it and am pretty good, but try to get the candy out w/o tearing the thin wrappers. You also scan them when they are laying flat and obviously open all the way so one can see both sides at once. When I buy a new unusual candy bar, I always buy 2 in case I ruin one opening it."

Mike says "Wow...20 year's worth of wrappers. That's awesome. I've mentioned before that my collection is just digital...I don't keep the wrappers after I scan them so I don't know how many boxes my 'collection' would fill!

As far as how I open them, someone asked me that a few years ago so I'm going to cheat and copy my answer here. You'll notice that I too buy more than one in case I rip it too much: When I first started the site, wrappers were much easier to open. They must have changed something...either they're thinner or different material because it's harder now. First thing I do is buy 3 or 4 of the same wrapper...just in case! If it's your average candy wrapper...basically rectangular...I'll try to pull apart one end at the seam. Sometimes, I'll use the candy bar itself as leverage, trying to get at least a small opening going right where the back seam meets the end. Kinda like opening a bag of potato chips or something. Sometimes I try both ends because it seems one end is usually easier than the other. Then I carefully open one end completely. This is usually where I mess up the most.

After the one end is open, I work on the back, separating right along the back seam. This either goes great or I rip it beyond repair. Then, when you get to the other end, it's a lot easier to open that seam. Lastly, after I scan the wrapper, I crop out any ends that are too embarrassing to show. Most wrappers have some damage and you have to go slow. Oh, and make sure they're not cold. Seems like it's harder when the wrapper is cold (like right out of the fridge). I still remember the wrapper that gave me the most trouble...the Lion from the UK, although this 5th Avenue actually looks worse."

I teach middle school Art and every year my kids do an enlarged candy bar and use your site to get the wrappers. They measure the wrappers and enlarge them 3x and draw them on large sheets of paper, paint them and then fold the wrapper and seal it on 3 sides. They then crumple newspaper and stuff it to look like the candy is actually in the wrapper and then seal off the remaining side. The finished product is wonderful and they are so proud. It's a great way for them to understand the uses of graphic arts in the commercial world. By the way, they would love to have you put up gum wrappers too! Thank you so much!!!"

Mike says "That's cool! I love getting comments like this. But with the gum wrappers, well, unfortunately, I don't really chew gum. And according to the rules of the page, each wrapper is something that I actually ate. So you probably won't see gum wrappers any time soon. Sorry!"

I have been collecting candybar wrappers since 1974 when I was in Jr. Hi. I have 2383 as of this week. I also have them from 54 countries. Back in the 90's I slacked off a bit so I missed a few, and I am not so dedicated today unless I see a very outrageous wrapper. My most expensive bar was a chocolate bacon for $8.50. Yikes! I only bought 1 from this line!! You have many that I have and some I don't. I also have some you don't, that's what makes sharing fun. My oldest wrapper is a MARS bar for $.05 cents. Cool, huh! Others I have were $.15 in the 70's. My coolest American one is the MARATHON bar. And best foreign one(s) were from Italy and they have 9 languages on the back! Unlike you, though, I still have ALL of my wrappers in 17 photo abumns. Some of my earlier books need to be put in new ones because they are falling apart. So happy collecting!"

But yea, i remember designing this over a bowl of cereal the morning the project was due, name was taken from an episode of ducktales that was on that morning where the kids stole some kinda flubber substance from uncle scrooge and were bouncing around everywhere. the substance was called pep. i won the contest and my project dissapeared from the school display, the product appeared months later on the shelves. so, i guess you're welcome, i'm glad you like my candy bar! hahahahahaha"

There are different types of candy and different types of people. Some like chocolate, some like sugar based (Dots, gummi worms, etc), some like sour.

Mike says "I found an example of what Art is talking about. This was back when Payday was made by The Hollywood Candy Company, but not in Hollywood, Florida. It was Hollywood, Minnesota. The company was sold to Consolidated Foods, later Sara Lee. After that, it was acquired by the Leaf Candy Company, then later became part of The Hershey Company who still make it today. It's also one of the hardest wrappers for me to open without ripping it to shreds or having sticky caramel all over it."

Mike says "I think I routinely see them in K-Mart and Target. Sometimes drug stores are a good place to find the lesser popular candy bars. And sometimes you can find them in warehouse type stores like Sam's Club or Costco, although you'll have to buy a box of them. Finding them online in less than a box in quantity would probably be hard. If you wanted a whole box, you can shopping at Amazon, but sometimes the shipping cost doesn't make it worth it."

Mike says "My general feeling with new candy bars is it is hard to get the shelf space. Almost everywhere you go, it's the same standard candy bars. In order to have something new, you have to get rid of something. So when a new bar hits the scene, they could be hard to find. I don't know if that's true, but I'm guessing that's the case. I couldn't find sales figures for the Air Delight. As far as where to find them, gas stations and drug stores often have a pretty good variety.

Mike says "Not sure what changes you mean. The new box? The new flavors? Or are they making them different now? I haven't had one in a while as the last time I was back in NJ, I didn't buy any. I miss the old boxes though when you used to punch in the end and rip off the top. And I can do without the little tins they come in now. I have noticed some interesting flavors (none that I can remember), but I can't see me buying anything but the Tasty Klair."

Oh, OK...wait. I did some searching and found this article. I was unaware of the perceived change in quality. I haven't noticed since I don't get to eat Tastykakes that often and when I do, it's almost always the Tasty Klair and/or the Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes. I haven't noticed a difference, but I'm probably not the best person to ask.

Mike says "Well, I couldn't find any evidence of Arthur Clark designing the first Lifesaver candy wrapper. Doesn't mean he didn't. I just couldn't find out any information after briefly searching. It was Clarence Crane of Cleveland, Ohio, who invented Lifesavers in 1912. He sold the rights to Edward John Noble the very next year. It was Noble who created the tin-foil wrappers (later switched to aluminum foil in 1925) instead of the cardboard rolls that Clark was using. Whether that counts as 'designing' the wrapper, I don't know. I don't know if you mean who actually designed the graphics, etc."

I just happened across your site while doing a (rather hapless) search to see if Tastykake had decided to expand and offer their product in the IL area (where I've lived for the last 21 years). I have been a huge fan of the Tasty Klair pie since I first met it in my high school days. Like you, I always grab a few when I'm home and they're in "season." And by in season, I mean they're only sold during the colder months of the year. I got this info from the Tasty Kake Sales/Delivery guy a couple of years back. I don't know exactly when that time period starts and ends; but I've only had luck finding them between Christmas and March as those are the time of the year when I make it back to the Virginia area (holidays and spring break for the kids). And, your observation is right: they don't sit on the shelves for long. They're gone within an hour or two of being delivered. Anyway, just thought I'd drop you a note since we share an affinity to tje Tasty Klair pie. Take Care."

Third, I recently started the Weight Watchers Points system and shed over 35 pounds, which puts me about 10 pounds into the 'overweight' catagory on the BMI chart. But I don't trust that chart because if I lost ten more pounds, I think I would look really bad...like, too skinny. One of the best parts about the plan is I can continue to eat chocolate, as long as it fits into that day's point range. So stop judging."

They're usually pretty hard right out of the package, but pop them into your mouth and eventually they soften up a bit. But bite down too quick and you might lose a filling. OK, just kidding. Sorta. The Phoenix Candy Company introduced them in 1962, and now they are owned by the Farley's & Sathers Candy Company who, along with some other candies, make a lot of those peg board bagged candies you'll see offering things like butterscotch disks, spearmint leaves, etc.

With all that said, I'm not a big fan. I'm not a big taffy person. Saltwater taffy, Now and Laters, etc. Not my thing. But they are good."

Why doesn't this candy bar get advertised anymore? You should try to advertise this, so that it can still be the popular candy bar, that it already is.

And now you're saying they're back to the foil/sleeve? I've looked around and don't see them around here. And I'd be surprised if they went back. Using foil and a paper sleeve doesn't really protect the candy very well against getting stale. I would think the plastic sealed wrapper would keep the freshness better.

The air bubbles give the Aero bars a bit of a lighter taste and feel. They're pretty good...I especially like the Aero mint bars. But don't bother looking for them in the US. Unless you find them in a specialty store, they're not sold in the US. However, accroding to their Wikipedia page, they are available at Giant Eagle, Super Stop and Shop, Wegman's, and some Kroger stores.

They've been around since the 1920s, but for some reason they can only be found in certain gas stations/jiffy stores so that might be why they aren't as popular as things you find in a checkout line at grocers. I love them so much in fact, whenever I have a craving I'll drive down to a gas station just to get one. I don't do that for any other candy bar."

The butterfinger happens to be my 1st runner up candy bar. How can you not like butterfinger?!?! They are soooooo good. AH, well. To each his own."

Mike says "Butterfingers stick in-between my teeth and after I eat one, I spend the next 20 minutes digging Butterfinger pieces out of my teeth. Now Butterfinger Crisp, that I like! But there's so many different candy bars that everybody gets to have their favorite."

(cause nobody under 40 remembers forever yours bars...)"

Mike says "I tried to find a timeline on Snickers wrappers, but couldn't find one. I'm not sure when they switched over. I always remembered the colors they have today.

I think that would have been neat to see the Forever Yours wrapper in place of the Milky Way Midnight, but you're talking about two different names for the same product. When they brought back Forever Yours, they decided Milky Way Midnight was the way to go as far as a name. Mainly, I'm sure, to capitalize on the Milky Way name. Coming out with the Forever Yours wrapper now (even as a promotional thing) would just confuse people. Especially since, as you note, not too many people remember Forever Yours. (BTW, I'm over 40 and don't remember them)."

The "Classic" two-pack is a .75 oz. cup, the "King Size" four-pack is a .70 oz. cup and the "Lunch" eight-pack is a .55 oz. cup." Of course, it doesn't mention what size they used to be and we know the regular cups have shrunk since I have the old wrapper. But I don't know if the snack size was ever the same size as the regular cup as I never bought them on a regular basis. I tried to do some research online to see if I could find what size the snack size Reese's used to be, but I couldn't find anything. I just double checked the brand new Reese's wrapper and the regular two-cup Reese's packages are still .75 ounces each."

We use your site as a reference and for inspiration. I do have a question, though. How do you open up the wrappers without tearing them? Is there a secret? Everytime I try it, I tear them. No matter how slowly and carefully I do it! Thanks, and keep on scanning those wrappers!"

Mike says "I love this question! When I first started the site, wrappers were much easier to open. They must have changed something...either they're thinner or different material because it's harder now. First thing I do is buy 3 or 4 of the same wrapper...just in case! If it's your average candy wrapper...basically rectangular...I'll try to pull apart one end at the seam. Sometimes, I'll use the candy bar itself as leverage, trying to get at least a small opening going right where the back seam meets the end. Kinda like opening a bag of potato chips or something. Sometimes I try both ends because it seems one end is usually easier than the other. Then I carefully open one end completely. This is usually where I mess up the most.

After the one end is open, I work on the back, separating right along the back seam. This either goes great or I rip it beyond repair. Then, when you get to the other end, it's a lot easier to open that seam. Lastly, after I scan the wrapper, I crop out any ends that are too embarrassing to show. Most wrappers have some damage and you have to go slow. Oh, and make sure they're not cold. Seems like it's harder when the wrapper is cold (like right out of the fridge). I still remember the wrapper that gave me the most trouble...the Lion from the UK, although this 5th Avenue actually looks worse."

Am I crazy, didn't they exist?"

It's almost like each wrapper takes you back to a different place and time to when you first ate each one and what you were doing back then. However, I do have a question for you. My wife and I, who grew up in two totally different parts of the United States (California/Missouri), seem to recall that Peanut-Butter Twix originally came in a yellow wrapper, before the red wrapper. Can you confirm this bit of information? Again many thanks for the website and best wishes in it's success."

Mike says "You are correct. This question pops up from time to time. Yes, Peanut Butter Twix was originally in a yellow wrapper years before. They went away and came back in the red wrapper, claiming they were 'new', but we knew better. BTW, the Peanut Butter Twix was replaced by the Twix PB, featuring a chocolate cookie. Many, including me, don't like it as much as the original Peanut Butter Twix."

I base that on looking at various Reese's wrappers I have oline. So, 2.1 ounces for 3 is about right. We're supposed to go to Wal Mart today. I'll double check the sizes, if I remember.

Also, I remember Breakaway....it was one of my favorite chocolate bars and they took it away...just like rum and butter. You are right. The breakaway bar did have a dark label and it was wafers chocolate and caramel. I don't know if this helps but I have emailed the company and maybe you could too. I thought Cadbury made it?

There was a general store next to the school and about once a week, my dad would give me a nickel for an Abba Zabba bar. The label then was pretty racist as I am aware of it now. It showed the old caricature of two African natives, thick lipped and and big eyes with a tall stacks of hair with a bone through the hair. I am glad they quit that label, but sad that the candy texture isn't as good. We used to take a strip and and streetch it out as far as we could reach, until the peanut butter started leaking, then roll it up and chomp away. Heavenly stuff!

However, it does appear Reese's gives you more in their King size peanut butter cups.

However, since its popularity increased (no doubt thanks to your website) they have come out with their own brand of this light, healthy alternative cheese puff. Keeping with the Caribbean flavor, it's called "Unburied Treasure - White Cheddar Corn Puffs", and it less expensive than Pirate's Booty. Just in case you... *gulp* ... venture outside the candy aisle. BTW, Trader Joe's also has some very tasty organic (and non-organic) chocolate bars made with all natural, pure ingredients - unadulterated as I like to put it. So I guess it's ok to eat more of it. :-D"

They are candy Snickers with a shot of caffeine and other stuff for a rush. Tastes like a regular Snickers. I think it is dangerous because kids should not have access to things with hidden caffeine."

I know other old wrappers have been on eBay and I can only assume a candy wrapper collector would check out eBay from time to time. Maybe do a Google search for collectors? As far as the nickel question, according to Wikipedia, there was a nickel in each payday for about 5 years back in the 80's. I don't remember that. Not sure if they were uncirculated or not."

It was lattice (or braided) shaped, as you can see from this advertisement from the 70's. Mars no longer makes Marathons, but I'm told the Curly Wurly (from England) is a pretty good substitute. Head to Old Time Candy Company and do a search on Curly to see what I mean. And to further confuse things, the Snickers Bar used to be called Marathon in England. Got all that?"

It wasn't an energy bar - it was a normal Snickers bar, but it was called Marathon. Not sure why, probably nostalgia, but I would love them to revert back to Marathon (even if it was only here in England!). We've also got Mr.T labelled Snickers bars at the moment, as he's doing a big ad campaign for them (www.getsomenuts.tv)"

Im currently trying to learn how to start a blog to showcase them, but wanted to see what was already out there first. Yours is REALLY impressive, i must say- we could have fun comparing collections. Im also an M&M junkie- new wrappers rock my world. Look out now for brand new Indiana Jones promo bags , one of which is a new flavor- Crispy Mint. Got em at Walgreens. And have you noticed all the diff holiday M&M packaging done by Target & Walmart? I need a blog to showcase all those too. Really cool all th diff designs.

I also have some book recommendations- any candy lover/collector should ck these out- all are available at Amazon (some are out of print but avail used there):
THE GREAT AMERICAN CANDY BAR BOOK by Ray Broekel
THE CHOCOLATE CHRONICLES by Ray Broekel
SWEET TALK by Nicholas Whittaker
CHOCOLATE MEMORIBILIA by Shiffer Books for Collectors

So thanx for all the great website and look forward to seeing more wrappers- and hopefully some more book reviews!

As this site brings together a community of candy-lovin folks, Id like to offer good news to Mike & some other commentors who are looking for some long lost wrappers- i may have them! I will start going thru my vast collection (almost 20 yrs old) and here is what I think I may have (if so I will send to mike for a post)
TRIPLE DECKER BAR
YELLOW WRAPPER P. BUTTER TWIX
any more you need? pls ask- I like the hunt!

Also a comment about Reese's Whip - I agree its taste weird and not so good- the idea from Reeses was a lower fat version of the beloved Reeses flavor- aimed at dieters and (mostly) women looking for a lower fat treat. The "peanut butter flavor nougat" says it all - nougat is mostly just whipped sugar and flavoring, much lower fat than real peanut butter- and the choc is thinner too. P Butter & choc is one of the most fattening combos to eat, but also the MOST popular candy bar in the US (besides Snickers)- so this is their attempt to please all people all the time. Unfortunately the regular and whip really taste NOTHING alike, so its a bust. Bummer."

Mike says "Wow! Thanks for the comments! I know I'm behind in my candy book reading, but when I get a chance, I'll check out some of the ones you mentioned. I do have the Indiana Jones wrappers and the Crispy Mint...just haven't opened them yet. And you should really start a blog...it's fun getting great comments from people!"

I have been trying to find Clark and O Henry candy bars. I know you mentioned that you aren't a major fan of O Henry bars (on your wrapper page) and I couldn't find a Clark wrapper, but where do you personally buy (or see) O Henry and Clark candy bars? One store in the neighboring town had O Henry bars a few months ago, but now I can't find them. I don't think I have ever seen a Clark's bar in my hometown or the neighboring town that had O Henry bars. Any information you have on it could really help me. In addition I saw that you had an Elvis Reese's candy wrapper on your site. My sister-in-law saw the candy once, but only once. My brother, sister-in-law, and I tried to find one for my Mom (she is a huge Elvis fan), but never did. Since the candy is to commemorate the anniversary of his death in August it is probably safe to say that we will not be able to find one now, right? Well, at least I can show her the wrapper (thanks to your site). Anyways, thank you very much for any help you can give me about the Clark and O Henry bars! Nice talking (writing) to you!"

Mike says "You are right that Clark bars and Oh Henry bars are not the easiest to find. BTW, Clark bars are not on my site because I don't really like them that much. Living in Pittsburgh, I do believe I see Clark bars more often than others as Clark bars got their start here in Pittsburgh and are a Pittsburgh tradition. You can read about it here. I think because of their ties to Pittsburgh, I can even buy Clark bars by the box at the local Sam's Club. So, that is an option...check out your local Sam's Club, Costco, or other warehouse stores. Also, my sponsor Old Time Candy Company sells both Clark bars and Oh Henrys.

As far as the Elvis Reese's, yeah, they might be harder to find now that it's November and they were only out for a limited time. But you can try dollar stores. Sometimes they have stock that didn't sell at other stores and you might find some."

Thanks for contacting us about TWIX PB COOKIE BARS. In the spring of 2007, the TWIX PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE BAR was relaunched and the name changed to TWIX PB. TWIX PB features a more intense peanut butter hit. More peanut butter plus the new, delicious, "jet black" chocolate cookie create a far superior combination of peanut butter and chocolate.

Because we are reviewing our marketing strategy, TWIX PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE BAR is unavailable at this time. Your comments will be shared with our Marketing Staff. The product cannot be purchased via the Internet nor directly from us.

I'm none too happy about this as I do like the 'original' Peanut Butter Twix better than the new Twix PB. If you agree, I urge you to call Twix at 1-800-551-9982 and let them know."

That's when I probably started working a regular job and making my own money outside those teen jobs most people get. And I would further assume that I averaged 3 candy bars a week (at least) from, say, age 14 to 20, when I was working those teen jobs. And let's just say I averaged 2 a week from age 10 to 14. I think these are underestimates, but we'll go with them. So, from 10 to 14, I had 416 candy bars. From 14 to 20, I had 936 more. And from age 20 to my last birthday, add in another 7,665...give or take. For a grand total of 9,017. Yeah, that sounds about right."

Needles to say we devoured all 5 packs of them that night. so i was gonna go to Walmart the day after easter and buy WHOLE load of them for cheap to give to my friend. Well they were all out so now i'm looking online to get bunch and thats when i found you. Let me know how you survive during the off season!"

Mike says "I've also wondered why they were so much better than 'normal' Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Then someone told me it's because there's more peanut butter in the eggs. AH HA! You could try the Reese's Big Cups...not exactly the same, but more peanut butter than a regular Reese's."

I lived in Wisconsin and saw it at a store. I bought it soon and ate it and I really loved it. It's different than Kitt-Katt, Reese Sticks is not that strong, so I love it the best. Since then, I only went to the usa a couple of times for holiday and bought a lot of 10 stick packs and brought them back with me each time, or asked my friend to send some for Christmas. Because I have never seen anywhere in Japan. I looked for everywhere. I haven't had Reese Sticks over 2 years now, I am sad. :( I hope we will import Reese Sticks someday. sigh."

There is something in this chocolate that makes me ravenous. LOL. I know that sound's funny but it is sweet and makes me want more. I have eaten 3 bars in one sitting. That is a lot. Or at least I think so! It is without question my favorite to this day! And Almond Joy has nothing on it. Almond Joy is bland and mushy! Yech! ALL I CAN SAY! IS BOUNTY, BOUNTY, BOUNTY! If you have not had one your missing it! I do have one question. It is superior to Almond Joy so why not stir up some competition?"

Because, if the O Henry or Baby Ruth was better I would have ate those. Most importantly, my father had good taste! I think the difference between, O Henry and Rally was that the Rally had more peanuts. My father loved peanuts. Furthermore, I do not really recall what the Rally candy wrapper looked like. The wrapper that you show on this website of the Rally (from Korea), is that the wrapper that the U.S. used too. I wish they still had the Rally around."

Mike says "I really need to get that FAQ written!! First off, I'll be 41 next month. I don't need an excuse to eat candy. I'm a big boy now! But seriously, back when I started this page, there weren't too many candy wrapper pages out there. I thought it would be neat to start scanning and posting wrappers with my comments. I really didn't think people would find it too interesting. But then people started sending me emails. So I added the comments section and an easier way to send me a comment.

There are other reasons. I've always been interested in how companies try to get you to buy stuff using colors, etc. I noticed slight changes in some wrappers and thought it would be neat to 'document' them. This was right before the 'limited edition' candies started to hit the shelves. Now it's fun to try and find new candies to post on the web site.

To my surpise, I've had a lot of people write me and thank me for the page. A lot of teachers use my page for classes. Others have written saying they use the wrappers to see what ingredients are used and/or fat and calorie content. How long can it go on? They're always putting out new candy bars and changing the wrappers of the old ones. It could go on forver!"

Congrats Hershey on a Job well done! (I also like 5th Avenues a lot.. so maybe it's just the "5"s in the name that cause me to like them)."

The candy bar was about as long as a snickers or so, was round and consisted of a white nuget center surrounded by what I remember to be a chewy chocolate chip granola. I want to say the wrapper was blue and white, like a Almond Joy, but am not sure. I got them at PDQ's convenience stores in Minneapolis when my mom would take me there. Does anyone know the name of this delicious candy bar? Thank you."

What we have here is sweet salty mess fused together by some sort of caramel. Have a class of water near by if you consume one of these "bad boys". The salt content is off the hook."

Mike says "Obviously, anything with peanuts is going to be higher in sodium since they salt the peanuts. But Payday really isn't that bad when compared to other bars, especially ones with peanuts. Payday has 8% of your recommended amount of sodium for the day. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups have 5%, Snickers with 6%. Twix (I'm guessing because of the cookie part) comes in at 5% as well. Even Milky Way has 4%. So, I don't think 8% is that bad considering it has so many peanuts. BTW, Nestle Crunch has 1% and York Peppermint Patties has 0% (although there is a trace amount)."

UPDATE!! I received an answer from the M&M people:
In response to your email regarding M&M'S CHOCOLATE CANDIES. The M&M'S CHOCOLATE CANDIES Global Color Vote has ended. More than 10 million people in 200 countries voted to add PURPLE to the blend of M&M'S CHOCOLATE CANDIES. Chocolate lovers everywhere rallied in support of their color preferences in the M&M'S Global Color Vote. After months of sampling the candidates in specially marked bags, the world chose purple -- with 41% of the vote. Aqua garnered a respectable 37% while pink managed a meager 19%. In August 2002, purple was added to the current blend of red, yellow, orange, green, blue and brown for a limited time.

So, there you go. Even though I think everybody (including me) thought they were going to be a new permanent color, they weren't.

I scan wrappers because I like junkfood. I started the page half as a joke, but then people started stopping by the web site and leaving me comments. The more I added, the more comments I got. I'm even mentioned in the back of the Steve Almond book I mention at the top of the page. Then, I started noticing slight (and some not-so-slight) changes in some wrappers. I've always been interested in how companies get you to buy their product, so these changes interested me. I thought it'd be neat to start an online collection so you can see the changes. These are just a couple of the reasons why. In case you're curious, no, I don't keep the wrappers once I scan them."

Aero comes in Milk Chocolate and Peppermint flavours mostly, but other flavours have come and gone over the years - Orange, Strawberry, Cappuccino, Coffee, Lemon & Lime, and there may have been a dark version if I remember correctly.

Mike says "You did just what I did...went to their web site and they couldn't tell me where to buy them either. But a week or so later, I found them at Wal Mart. I would guess they are available in more places now (it's 8/20 as I write this) then when you wrote your comment."

But it's the chocolate that most kids grow up on, and the emotional aspect of your childhood favorite cannot be overlooked. For example, I'm sure a big reason why Snickers and Reese's are my favorites is simply because they are my Mom's favorites as well. I remember her sharing them with me as a kid."

But I can eat a 3 Musketeers any time of the day or night. They might be "light" but they're so tall! I'm always satisfied after I eat one.

I seem to remember a big deal being made about the white part being on the outside, which made it unique among candy bars. Also does anyone remember Bar None, or the Marathon Bar? An ex of mine loved Bar None, and I haven't seen a Marathon Bar or Marathon Bar commercial (It lasts a long long time...) since the 70's."

Mike says "The problem I have with Cadbury Creme Eggs is that I think I ate too many as a kid. I used to love them. Now, not so much. I might buy one when they come out every year, but that's it. The second problem is the wrappers tend to be hard to peal off in one piece and they also tend to be sticky. I don't want to ruin my scanner by getting sticky stuff all over it!"

On 4/25/06, maayan from tivon, israel, wrote: "what kind of name is oh henry??"

Mike says "Well, according to the Nestle web site, here's the story: The "Oh Henry" name has nothing to do with Hamerin' Hank the baseball player or O. Henry the author. This Henry was the name of a young man who used to come to the Williamson Candy Store in Chicago where chocolate was being made and sold. Henry would kid around with the young ladies who made the candy. After awhile, they began asking Henry to do little jobs and favors. "Oh Henry, do this" or "Oh Henry, will you get me that?" Later that year (1921) "Oh Henry" became the name of the new candy bar."

"If you don't want to believe that, here's an entry from Wikipedia: This story is cute, but not the true story of the Oh Henry candy bar. The candy bar was invented by a man named Tom Henry of Arkansas City, Kansas. Tom Henry ran a candy company called the Peerless candy factory, and in 1919 he started making the Tom Henry candy bar. He sold the candy bar to Curtis Candy Company in 1920 where they later changed the name to "Oh Henry"."

Mike says "Yes, we have Cadbury here in the US. Sorta. See, Cadbury has licensed Hershey to make and distribute Cadbury candy bars (much like Nestle does with Kit Kats in the US). The reason behind this was it was easier to get Cadbury candy bars in stores by letting Hershey make the chocolate rather than fighting for the shelf space. It's VERY hard to get candy bars into stores. Cadbury takes advantage of the distribution lines already set up by Hershey. But please understand...it is Cadbury chocolate, not Hershey chocolate, in Cadbury products in the US. BTW, Caramello bars are one of my favorites."

The terrible advert with a French woman, saying Snee-kerghhs. To be honest, we are funny as a race, but I prefered the name Marathon, and had hoped the name would resurface. I wonder if I can order them over the net?"

Mike says "As I understand it, Snickers was called Marathon in the UK (while being sold as Snickers in the US).

The M&M contest was to celebrate the world wide voting of a new M&M color (purple won). If you look at the back of the wrapper, you'll see other cash awards in other country denominations. By the way, I worked at a little radio station and we thought about having a "Mexican Millionaire" contest. Win a million pesos. I'll let you figure out how much that is."

Inside the U.S. Kit Kat is a Hersey's product. Hersey's had a long term contract to make and distribute Kit Kat in the U.S. from Kit Kat's original owners Roundtree Macintosh. When Nestle bought Roundtree the contract stayed in force. So every Kit Kat sold in the U.S. has Hersey's chocolate and all the rest in the world have Nestle's chocolate. In Japan there are Orange and Banana Kit Kat (Nestle also). I have not tasted one but I have seen the wrappers. You have a colorful web site with alot of content and I like it.

I work for a grocery store, in fact i am the candy section head and i know almost for a fact that those m&m's where a one time deal. They where in part to promote the dark side of the new Star Wars movie and that's it. The person who was talking about the dark choc. twix, i agree those where great, that along with the Limited Edition Mounds dark choc or triple choc i cant remember, but those are by far the two best candy bars to have came out. I've seen some caramel M&M's before from the UK i think. Also just saw two new Hershey's Reeses Cup (chocolate bar...not cups) flavor's. Strawberry and Rasberry. Also a new Hershey's confetti milk chocolate bar. Hershey's Cadburry dark fruit and nut chocolate bar. Cappucino milk chocolate bar /w almonds. Junior Mints Inside Outs. Big cup crunchy. Hershey Kisses chery cordial. Almond Roca candy cane. Hershey kisses peanut butter. Hershey's mint miniatures. Willy Wonka doughnuts. Anyway, keep up the cool page Mike. I've been wanting to start a page like yours for strictly Limited Edition candy and give you a little competition :)"

Mike says "Thanks for the info, Thomas. I was checking (an old affiliate web site I don't deal with anymore) for something else and was suprised to see they actually have Dark Chocolate M&Ms!! They are the Star Wars ones, so I don't think they're new. But if anybody is interested, I'd hurry to the site...I don't know how many they have. I saw the new Reese's bars, but only in a four-pack. I didn't want to risk buying four of them and not liking them. I bought a box of the Inside Out Junior Mints, but haven't had them yet...the box will be on the web site when I do! And you should start your own web page. Plenty of room on the Internet for both of us! I'd probably end up using your page to make sure I'm up to date.

I bought a box of the Mint Kit Kats and will have the wrapper up after my next wrapper update. They are the standard 4-finger bar size. I put the Hershey's Cookies 'n' Mint on my Christmas list. Both say limited edition, so if you see them, stock up!!

I too scoffed when they reintroduced them a few years ago as "new" because I was very annoyed when they got discontinued. They were new back in the late 1980s, and they were in a YELLOW wrapper. Remeber a candy bar called "Bar None"? I remember those were really good. Also, remember when plain M&M's had tan colored pieces? The peanut ones never had tan pieces. And there were never red or blue ones either (everyone thought red food coloring caused cancer at the time). There just doesn't seem to be much quality chocolate in the US anymore. There's much better variety and quality in just about any other country. In Europe you can get Orange-Chocolate KitKats, and Mint-Chocolate KitKats. My search to order these on the Internet for a reasonable price continues."

Mike says "Good old Red Dye #2. While doing a quick search, I found an interesting couple of paragraphs on red foods and red dye #2.

I think the dark brown M&Ms were the last to be eaten. Or it could have been the other way around. And I also remeber Bar None...good stuff."

As candy bar makers experiment with limited editions today I wonder if that wasn`t the case with this one. It would have been in the 1950`s and I lived in WVa. I wrote to York but got no reply.

I don't know why Hershey has doesn't have either one of these bars on their site. Anyways I like your site. It's funtimes."

Mike says "I have looked for both the Key Lime and Passion Fruit Almond Joys and have found neither. A reason why Hershey doesn't have them on their site is because they might be test marketing them. A company will pick a couple of markets across the country and try out a product to see how it sells. Could be that they are testing these bars in Fredericksburg (among other places). Another possible reason...big companies are sometimes slow at updating their web sites when it comes to new products.

It had a brown wrapper, sorta like Snickers. Anyway, since you seem to have such a great knowledge and familiarity with candy bars, I thought you might be able to share in my recollection? Great site, I like it!"

Mike says "My collection isn't too old, so, no Breakaway wrapper. I don't remember it, but it looks like Nestle sells something called Breakway in England.

You mentioned caramel and I didn't see anything that said the Nestle Breakaway came with caramel.

So why does one company make two bars that are basically the same exact thing? Heath Brothers Confectionary made Heath bars until Leaf bought them out. Hershey eventually aquired Leaf and decided to discontinue one of the bars (forget which one) since they are the same thing. Fans of the discontinued bar complained enough that Hershey brought it back. Now we have two bars that are the same and made by the same company. But I know if you favor one over the other, you will swear there is a big difference in the two.

In Canada and most of the world, Mars bars are sold in a black wrapper, and are a bit like an American Milky Way but thicker (in other words, just nougat, caramel and chocolate; NO ALMONDS). Strangely enough, both Mars and Milky Way bars are manufactured at the Effem plant north of Toronto, although most of the Milky Ways are shipped to the States for sale--they aren't readily available here. So to recap: Mars bars do not have almonds. And now, I guess that Mars bars in the US have been changed to Snickers with almonds, that's consistent across the globe. Oh, and we can now get Caramilk Maple bars here. A whole bunch of bars have added maple flavour including Coffee Crisp and Oh Henry."

We don't get them around here where I live very often. (It's probably a good thing, because I would be too tempted to buy & eat them all the time!) We got:
1 Box of Peanut butter Kandy Kakes
1 Box of Butter Cream Iced Creme Filled Chocolate Cupcakes
1 Box of Jelly Krimpets
A few Tasty-Klair Pies (these are so delish, but so fattening!)
Not to mention Herr's Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips (my all time fave)Have you ever tried these? (you probably have since you used to live in NJ)and if so, do you like them? I am all set with junk food for a while! :>) Take care, Mike!"

No need to tell me about Tasty Klair pies...they are my favorite Tasty Kake pie!! I almost had a heart attack when I walked into my favorite dollar store here in Pittsburgh and they actually had Tasty Klair pies!!!!! Two for $1!! I just bought two since, as you mentioned, they are quite bad for you. Wrapper will be posted one of these days. And Herr's BBQ chips are also a favorite. Laurie and I went home to NJ for Memorial Day weekend and the trip included a stop at Wawa for a cheese hoagie with Herr's BBQ chips and a Mountain Dew. It's tradition."

I guess people assume you eat loads of candy all day long without stopping to think that one can be moderate about consuming such things. Like, I'm thin but when people see me eating something "fattening" they always say, boy you sure are lucky you can eat that and not gain weight. But if I ate too many I wouldn't continue to be thin. Anyway, totally off-topic. So I will make a candy comment about Kit Kat bites: I recently tried a small pak and ate the entire thing in about a minute flat. They're dangerous!"

On 4/07/05, Chris from Philadelphia wrote: "You wrote about how Nestle's Chunky bars used to have different varieties- I remember this as well. I have a faint recollection of a gold Chunky wrapper (may have been a peanuts only version, no raisins)... and maybe even another one (perhaps solid milk chocolate?). Anyway, nice web pages.

"I love coconut and pineapple, and needless to say I love pina coladas. But this candy bar (Almond Joy Pina Colada) sucked! I purchased two of them when I saw them because I was convinced that I would love them. After eating half of the first bar (I threw the other half away), I forgot about the second bar sitting in my front pocket. Went to see a concert that night in Philly- a woman who goes by the name Peaches. Towards the end of the show she had worked up quite an appitite and asked the crowd for food/drink handouts. So I threw the pina colada bar (half melted and squashed from being in my pocket half the day) up on stage, hitting her square on the forhead. She retrieved the bar from the stage floor, examined the label and opened the bar. After one bite she made this face of disgust and spit it out onto the floor. It might be one of those associations where you see the Almond Joy label and the brain makes an assumption that it will taste a certain way (chocolatey). Then when you try it, yuck! It's almost like the reverse of the taste expectation you'd get from that gimmicky Heinz Green Ketchup for kids (something that looks unfamiliar, but tastes familiar, as opposed to looking familiar, but not tasting familiar). It might help the next time I get a candy bar with a off-beat flavor to keep eyes shut when I eat it.

"I was checking out your page and worked up a craving, so I went down to the Rite-Aid next to my place of employment. First of all, the selection of candy bars in the U.S. is pretty beat compared to the U.K./Ireland, and Canada too, as your web page seems to suggest (caramel Kit-Kats...strawberry cream Kit-Kats!?! Awesome!). Inside Rite-Aid I found an even newer and improved version (per the label) of Snickers w/Almonds. Like many people who have commented on your page, I feel that the replacement of the Amerian Mars Bar with the Snickers w/Almonds was a step down (the caramel is not as soft and smooth, there seems to be less nougat and the chocolate is the same that is used in regular Snickers Bars - it makes my throat scratchy sometimes). Anyway, I tried this new version, and it's pretty good. Maybe I'm falling for the gimmick of a "new and improved" label (or in the case of this bar: PACKED TO THE MAX! MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF ALMONDS!), but it's better...and also available in king size (the Mars Bar was never available in king size, and I always wondered why (higher production cost?). The label on your page from April 2004 features the tag: MOST NUTS EVER!! I guess they tweaked it some more this time around. I think the regular Snickers bar has a similar "new & improved" label, but promoting maximum peanuts instead of almonds"

Mike says "Thanks for all the comments, Chris. I do have some of the newer Snickers and Snickers w/Almonds wrappers that you spoke of...just haven't had time to scan and post (I do have the "Packed to the Max" Snickers posted)."

Holiday candies drive me crazy! Like Easter was coming up and there was like millions everywhere but i managed to get most of it. I want to know if you collect special holiday candy bars because it's really crazy."

Mike says "Generally, no, I don't go for the holiday wrappers too much. Like you said, there's too many. If I happen to pick one up, I'll save it. But I don't go out of my way. Of course, I gotta get the Reese's Easter Egg. And Reese's Pumpkin. And Reese's Christmas Tree. Anyway, one of my general rules was not to buy something just so I could add the wrapper. I admit, I did break that rule a couple times though."

On 3/17/05, John from Garland, Texas, wrote: "On the Candy Book page, you mentioned that Mars no longer makes PB Max, because they don't like Peanut Butter. So, if they don't like peanut butter, then why did they go ahead and make Peanut Butter M&M's Chocolate Candies? And speaking of the M&M's, I've done a search, and can't find out why the Mint M&M's aren't part of their product line, even though they DO make them (Meaning there are 6 flavors in their product line, not counting the Minis or Baking Bits: Milk Chocolate, Peanut, Peanut Butter, Almond, Crispy, and Mint), and as far as I know, the Mint comes out only during the holiday season. So, why did they leave out Mint in their product line on the M&M's website, even though they DO make it?"

Mike says "John is referring to my review of the book "The Emperors of Chocolate", which is a history of Mars and Hershey. Good book. Along with PB Max, the book does discuss the Peanut Butter M&Ms. Top officials at the company had to beg the Mars family to include the peanut butter M&Ms in the M&M line. The book goes on to say that the Peanut Butter M&Ms have almost been pulled from production several times because the Mars family simply hates peanut butter and can't understand that other people love it. As far as your Mint M&Ms question, I would guess that since it's only available once a year, they don't really count it as part of their line."

I'm interested in the different types of chocolate you have in the States, and am looking forward to trying some of them when I visit your country for the first time in a couple of weeks. I am amazed to see the number of products with peanut butter in them! That's something I never considered a likely combination with chocolate, but I will be interested to see how it tastes. Carol from Ontario left a comment about the Snack bar which contains various different fillings coated in chocolate. I assume she is referring to the Cadbury Snack, which is certainly still made here in Australia, and probably in England as well. It contains strawberry, pineapple, orange, coconut, turkish delight and caramel fillings. Finally, is it true that the Mars bar is not available in the States any more? That is interesting, as worldwide it is probably the most widely available and recognised brand, the Coca-Cola of chocolate bars. Thanks again for your site."

Mike says "David, hope you enjoy your trip to the States. You'll have to drop me a line and let me know what you think of the chocolate here in the US. It's kinda true that the Mars bar is no longer available in the US. It has been repackaged as the Snickers Almond bar, although if you ask a Mars bar lover, they'll tell you it's just not the same. As far as the peanut butter/chocolate thing, most Americans love peanut butter."

My Google search also found a recipe called Shamrock Cookies 'n Mint Dessert and interestingly it calls for 7oz bars, so must be from way back when the bars were bigger :-( Oh well, that's economics, I guess. I am a big fan of the mint and chocolate combination! By the way, to make really great hot chocolate, use the normal amount of Swiss Miss or whatever your favorite brand is and add one broken up small York Peppermint Patty. Stir well. A vending machine package of 3 patties will make three cups of rich, dark, minty hot chocolate, if you can keep yourself from eating the patties by themselves."

These days I get Toffifee in NYC that is sent over from Germany, and the ingredient list printed on your wrapper is quite different from the one on my German Toffifee. They don't just change recipes every ten minutes over there the way they do here. So I think they used to import them from Germany, but now they make an Americanized version of it (more sugar, less Hazelnuts) in America to suit American tastes (or American corporate profit goals). I concur on those TastyKakes! When I first arrived in Philadelphia for college, everyone raved about them and I tried one and thought "Yeah, they're better than the big national brands", but didn't think much more of it. But over time, I really get hooked. I think it's not just what you taste, but what you don't taste. Other brands punish you with an interminable aftertaste of chemical preservatives and flavorings. With TastyKakes, you have only the flavor of fresh, natural ingredients and few preservatives or no preservatives at all. Like you, I also enjoy the Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes, but I would swear they must be putting some sort of addictive substance into the Butterscotch Krimpets. There just aren't many people who have lived in Philly who haven't become totally addicted to those things. Most who have moved out of the area get teary-eyed reminiscing about how delicious one of those is with a cup of coffee. Anytime I'm driving through that area I make sure to stop at a Wawa and pick up a few boxes for myself and friends. Did you know that the Krimpets are still baked in the same factory, using the same recipe (and even the same cast-iron baking forms) as they have been using now for about a hundred years now? And last I checked, you could still go in and take a tour of their operation. God, those Krimpets are delicious! Now I'm hungry."

Mike says "What you say about the Toffifay may be true. Generally speaking, the hazelnut isn't very popular among Americans. Just like peanut butter isn't very popular in England (where the hazelnut is very popular). And BTW, Butterscotch Krimpets are my second favorite Tasty Kake."

My fiance used to work for both Boyer and their sister company barton candy (barton closed their doors in 2000 prior to the owners death). Stock up because even when Boyer is open & in full swing they are experiencing layoffs as much as they work, thats the norm there though. They get caught up with whatever seasonal candy they are making ie. valantines day candy is all prepared in the winter months come spring will be the big layoff. The same goes with every season they do the seasonal candy early, then the layoff. I guess it would be fair to say they are seasonal workers."

Mike says "Thanks for the update. For those who don't know, Boyer's big claim to fame is the Mallo Cups. When they're up and running, they're one of the last small candy companies in the US."

I thought I'd stop by and visit and leave my comments on two new limited edition candy bars I tried last night. One is the Cadbury Royal Dark Mint (Mint Semi-Sweet Chocolate) & the other is the Cadbury Raspberry Creme (Indulgent White Chocolate). Let me tell you, it's pretty hard for me to find a candy bar that I don't like & these two are pretty bad. Both my husband & I didn't care for them at all. In fact, not be gross, but my husband mentioned that he kept burping up the Raspberry Creme one, and I laughed & said that the same thing was happening to me! It kept repeating itself! Yuck! Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing either of those candy bars - what a disappointment! Also, I noticed that you had a few people comment on McVitie's Penguin bars. These are now my all time favorite and I am sadly addicted to them! I can only find them online or when we visit Freeport, Maine, as there is a shop there that sells British goods and they have a large selection of British candy, cookies, crackers, etc. Penguins are so delicious! My second fave British candy bar is the Dairy Milk Bubble (formerly Wispa). Keep up the good work, Mike!"

There are three different $2.99 bags of Hershey's Assorted Miniatures that stores don't usually carry. Nut Lovers, Special Dark and Mr. Goodbar. Trident has a new cinnamon spice or cinnamon stick gum that is very tasty.

My absolute favorite! They actually never did go away for good. After only the caramel flavor Twix was sold in the gas stations and convenience stores, I paid attention more often on the lookout for them...I couldn't believe something so good could just disappear. I spotted them one day in the grocery store in the candy aisle sold in a box of 12(I think) individually wrapped cookie bars. The thing is, they were never as good as what I remember, until now. Maybe it's having two bars next to each other that makes all the difference. Well, glad to know there's others who appreciate this stuff as much as I. PB Twix Kicks Ass!"

As someone else has since pointed out, you can tell it's Canadian because it will have both English and French on the wrapper.

We were driving north across the center of the island and stopped at a local gas station for a snack. I bought two of the candy bars and shared one with my wife. We both thought they were delicious. Upon returning home to Atlanta, we looked for the bars locally, but could not find them. Thus, we thought they were distributed only in Hawaii, since they are in keeping with local tastes on the islands. Then, we finally found a supply of the bars at a local news stand at the shopping mall that we frequent each weekend. As the supply dwindled, we suggested they re-order. At last, we bought the last two bars and enjoyed them on our usual Saturday shopping trip. Now the news stand only has the traditional Mounds and Almond Joys. I guess we were their only pina colada customers. In searching the web, I do see that there are supplies available by mail order. Since our trip to Hawaii, I guess we have developed our tropical taste buds and still desire the pineapple and coconut flavor wrapped in white chocolate. My wife and I both agree this is one of the best candy bars we have tasted. If anyone knows of a supplier in the Atlanta area, I welcome your posting the location."

In essence, I am proposing one massive sandwich candy bar. Thank you"

Mike says "Well, Dave, everyone has their opinion. And this is my web site. But yes, I enjoy Hershey better than Milka. Why? Because candy has stong emotional ties for many people. I grew up eating Hershey chocolate. When I eat it, it reminds me of my childhood. Maybe I'm not always aware of it when I eat it, but it's there. The carefree years of my childhood spent walking to the 7-11 and buying candy. When often the toughest decision of the day was Hershey or Snickers or Reese's (or, gasp, a Slurpee). So when I eat a Hershey bar, not only am I enjoying chocolate, but it calms me emotionally (both mentally and chemically)."

I just wanted to know what is a peanut butter cup and also what is an almond joy? Thanks alot Dee xxP.s I love the American accent!"

Mike says "First off, it's you guys who have the accent!! Anyway, if I had to guess about the lack of peanut butter cups in England, I would guess that it's because (from what I hear), English people pretty much don't like peanut butter. Yes, this is a generalization and I'm not saying all people from England hate peanut butter. If you are from England and you like peanut butter, there is no need to write me. A peanut butter cup is a chocolate shell filled with peanut butter. And Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are one of my all time favorites. Different companies do different things to the peanut butter to come up with different tastes. Almond Joy is my girlfriend Laurie's favorite. It's simply sweetened coconut covered in chocolate. Each package has two pieces and each piece has an almond on top. Hope this helps!"

Mike says "There's a couple of reasons. The main one is I love chocolate. And I'd thought it would be fun to just start posting wrappers and see what would happen. Sort of a "If you build it..." thing. I like looking at older wrappers and noticed there weren't too many web sites devoted to candy wrappers. So, that was another reason. I think a big part of the Internet being fun is sites like mine. Just something goofy I do when I have the time. After I had a few wrappers up, people started emailing me. Then the Dark and White Chocolate Kit Kats hit and people started asking me all kinds of questions on where they could get them. Like I knew. That lead to me making it easier to leave comments (although I won't go to an automatic type board...too many jerks who leave childish comments). Also, I enjoy trying new bars and when I started scanning wrappers (I don't keep them...scan them and throw them away), I started hunting for different wrappers. I go to Canada once or twice a year and I make sure I stop in a store and look for new wrappers.

Basically, it's a hobby. I love getting comments. That's my favorite part. I like to think of my site as a place to go to kill a few minutes, read some comments, look at some wrappers. You know what...it's late, I'm rambling, and my comments here aren't making a whole lot of sense. Let's just say it's fun to do. I have over 120 wrappers up and I have another 22 to add. I can't believe with all the wrappers I have posted, I actually have 22 different ones to add. And I just got back from Niagara Falls with a bunch of Canadian bars to add (once I eat them)."

But I do believe it would have influenced me if I didn't have the web site. Color is very important in products. I don't know why they used blue in the first place since as soon as you see that orange, you know it's a Reese's product.

For example, Hershey already has its distribution channels all set up to move massive amounts of candy around the country and into just about every store. Nestle takes advantage of that by having Hershey handle everything rather than setting it up themselves.

I love the chocolate oranges also! Check out this recipe that I use them in...http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/getrecipe.zsp?id=25297. I think that you will like them. I am trying the peppermint one this year. Have you tried the Ghiradhelli Mint Squares? The are fabu, they also have orange creme filled squares. Yay Ghiradhelli. I also saw Eggnog, Peppermint Bark and Cinnamon Pecan Squares. I also really like the Flyer Bars. If you see them, get one. They are a bit pricey, but worth the $$$"

Mike says "The peppermint orange is awsome!! I must warn you though...it is VERY minty. But I like it like that. I haven't had one since I started the web site, so I don't have a wrapper for it. But if I see one this year, I'll have to pick one up."

The name of this candy was "Skullcrusher candy". It was a white skull made of perhaps a white chocolate and there was a strawberry or rasberry cream inside. You wuold squeeze the skulls head and the cream would ooze out of the eyes and mouth. We have done many, many web searches for even a history of the product. But the only thing we have come across are other people who were also searching for this elusive candy. I have no doubt it was discontinued. I might have even remembered that at the time it was considered too gruesome for kids. This was maybe 15-20 years ago. I live on the east coast in NJ. I would love to find out the name of the company who manufactered it. Believe it or not there are alot of people who still wonder about this candy. We even tried searching the u.s. patent office but no luck. Any reason that you know of why its so hard to find even history on it? There is a current skullcrusher candy being made in a company in England but is not the same product. Believe me, i ordered it from overseas only to find that it was not the same product. Any help at all would be appreciated."

Mike says "I also had no luck doing a quick search. Can anybody help out Nick? Leave me a comment and let me know. And if I had to guess why you can't even find a history on it is probably because 15-20 years ago (when you say it was being made), the Internet wasn't around. So, if it was discontinued, the company that made it probably wouldn't include it in any online history. That would be my guess."

On 10/21/04, anon from anon-ville wrote: "the internet, and the grand compendium of information that it now comprises -- server by server, individual contribution by individual contribution, and pieces by (reese's?) pieces, -- is truly a one of the greatest cultural (not just scientific, but cultural) innovations of our lifetime.

to be more specific, i have wondered for years if i was imagining something called a skybar. in my recollections of my eight-year old self, it was my favorite candy. it had an odd yellowish/brownish wrapper that i recall was especially waxy. it came in sections (not unlike today's carmello, all these years later), and it had the best saturday morning advertising on tv about (as you point out)being four candybars in one -- making it not only good, but a bargain -- a kind of candybar buffet in a wrapper. i remember eating one, a section at a time, of course, trying to figure out what each segment contained and, more importantly, if it were my favorite. it had enough of an impact on me, clearly, that it never left my mind over a lifetime, although the bar itself disappeared from the shelves decades ago. i'm rather amazed that they are still in production today, and that you -- of all people, the guy with a site devoted to candybars -- found one. at times, fate really does seem to take a hand in this world. it was great seeing the wrapper again -- and the labelling for what the filling was for each section.

you may think that your site is a biographical vanity or a way for a collector to organize and show off his holdings, but i think candy strikes a very deep chord in our childhood psyches, and i think this site performs a terrific service. i've often wondered why the same old candybars for the most part endure while other newer models find the market hard to crack. i mean, how hard can it be to sell candy to babies? but the reggie bar fades away while the chunky remains eternal. forever yours disappears only to be re-invented as milkyway midnight. the mars company (and are there still mars bars??!!) can't innovate a new product, but they can try to spin off snickers into an almond bar, a rice crispy bar. the clark bar loses it's nugetty center stripe and almost dies away, like it's cousin, the zigzag bar. skor can imitate but never replace heath. etc. popp'ems shrink down only the classics to bite size, never offering anything original in texture. i think the answer is that like classical music, the confections that most profoundly touch our tastebuds, needs, hearts and minds have been discovered long ago -- and we are exposed to them when we are young, so the first-hand knowledge of true satisfaction is established early on. new generations seem to reject the more recent marketing efforts, no matter how glitzy the ad campaigns, and stick to the classics because, i think, like notes on a scale or colors in a prism, the old candies more or less cover the basic sugar needs fully. sure, a few die away, like slowpokes (the great destroyer of dental fillings), but check out any halloweener's bag, and its the usual stuff, from peppermint patties to pure hershey chocolate (only "fun" sized).

people may talk about great inventors -- edison, the wright brothers, al gore (or whoever discovered the internet), but i say that group must include the person who made the first snicker-like candy. if it were done at home in the old days and served as a fudge at a party or as an after-meal treat, could you imagine the reaction from those lucky first samplers? it wouldn't be like, "mrs. jones makes the best pies!" it would be more like, "you would not believe this new kind of candy that only mrs. jones knows how to make!!" i can't even think of another discovery that is comparable, save for coca cola or the internal combustion engine. regardless of how the first snickers evolved (maybe just in the labs of the mars company in a eurika moment), there are few tastes in the world that are so powerful that they could spawn a mulit-billion industry that has spanned the ages and shows no sign of ever stopping.

but enough rhapsodizing about candybars. more to the point: thanks for knowing about, re-discovering and posting something on the skybar. if ever there was a memory i wanted to refresh and validate about the material (perhaps even a tad spiritual or at least heavenly) side of life, that was it. good job. and the saving and posting of the wrappers is an inspired touch."

Mike says "I broke a couple rules here. One, I almost never post comments from people who don't leave me a name and town. And two, I usually don't post such long comments. Most people who leave long comments make no sense or repeat themselves (or something I've already said over and over). Sometimes I edit down comments (but not usually...I even stopped correcting most misspellings). But your comment was so well written, I had to include it. And I agree...once you make that connection with a candy bar to your childhood, it usually will stay there throughout your life. Why are Snickers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups two of my favorites? Because they are my Mom's favorites. Good comment and thanks for writing.

I don't like Heath or Skor very much, so you might never see those wrappers on my page. But, I have bought one or two candy bars just to get the wrapper, so you never know. Interesting story about Heath and Skor. Hershey makes them both. Hershey made Heath and bought the company that made Skor. They decided, since both bars are almost the same exact thing, that they would stop making Skor. All the Skor fans were up in arms, so Hershey decided to keep making both. Just another reason that if you're not happy with someone's product, let them know. You never know what will happen."

I believe the wrapper changed sometime in the early 80's. The only difference is the size - the chocolate in the gold wrapper being about 1/2 as thick. The smaller ones were easier to pop in your mouth whole! I feel like a pig now!! Keep up the great website for all us chocolate freaks!"

So I stock up on them every time I cross the border! You Americans get the GREATEST chocolate bars! Anyway, carry on 'critic'ing those bars!"

Mike says "When someone can't find a limited edition candy bar, I usually offer the same advice. Try all kinds of stores, like drug stores, gas stations, grocery stores, and Mom & Pop stores. Also, if it is a limited edition bar, they usually aren't in with the other candy bars. Almost all the time, they are in a separate free standing display...you know, those cardboard stands that look like they're about to fall over. And they could be anywhere in the store, not just near the candy. Good luck!! If I find some, maybe we can trade...I'll take some Strawberry and Vanilla Kit Kats. And as far as your comment about the US having the best chocolate bars, I guess the grass is always greener because I LOVE Aero (mint), Wunderbar, and Kit Kat Caramel Chunky and you can get them anytime you want."

Mike says "Unfortunately, there's not much I can do for you. I haven't seen them in my area of Pittsburgh in a while. The 'major' stores (Wal Mart, Eckerd's, etc) probably won't carry them as Boyer is a small candy maker who can't afford to pay for the space (yes, Hershey, Mars, etc, pay to be in big stores). I saw them down the Strip in Pittsburgh in the spring, but haven't been to the Strip since. You can check out some of the candy stores that are on the Internet. I don't provide links as I don't like to promote commercial sites that I haven't directly dealt with. If you went to Google and typed something like "Mallo cup", it should bring up some sites.

(I hope Hershey appreciates that.) Speaking of Hersheys. They're probably the reason Zeros seem to have disappeared for a while. I believe Zeros were originally made by another manufacturer. Hersheys ended up buying them."

Also have you tried the Idaho Spud candy bar. A bit different and my current favorite. Only available on the west coast, which means I buy a years supply with me when i visit."

Mike says "I believe I have had some sort of cookie with corn flakes and Karo syrup in the past. After a quick search on the Internet, I couldn't find the exact recipe with M&M's. But if you do a search for corn flakes and karo syrup, you should be able to find the basic recipe. I would think once you have that, it's just a matter of mixing in M&Ms...or anything you can think of! As far as the Idaho Spud, I have heard of it but have never had one. That's one of those candies that is made by a regional company and is one of the subjects Steven Almond talks about in his great candy book called Candyfreak."

The current advertisement displays a young boy feeding a dog Cookies M&M Bar. I highly object to this commercial as it support the wrong message, that there is nothing wrong with feeding dogs chocolate. If proper research had been done, whomever created this commercial would have discovered that chocolate can be toxic for dogs and untimately lethal and deadly leading to death. You commercial defintely sends the wrong message. For those of us who are pet owners and love animals, we automatically are more knowledagble of the above type of information regarding all conditions which are hazardous to the health and well-being of animals, and in this case, dogs. However, for people and especially children, who are not as informed as others, these individuals will interpret your commercial as being comparable to reality and literally implement that same unsafe behavior of finding amusement in feeding dogs chocolate. This behavior is actually inappropriately depicted in the commercial as a positive action. Our request is for you to either discontinue the commercial, modify it, or if left on follow up at the end of the commercial stating in some manner to send the proper message that dogs should not be fed chocolate. Thank you."

Mike says "OK, posted this comment for two reason. One, yes, it is true that chocolate is no good for dogs. Check out this link for more information. Don't give your dog chocolate no matter how much he/she begs for it.

The other reason I posted this comment is, obviously, the people who wrote it thought they were writing to the company that makes Cookies &. You would be surprised at the number of comments I get from people who think they are writing a company and not some loser guy in Pittsburgh who spends waaaaay too much time hunting down new candy bars, opening them so as not to ruin the wrapper, scan said wrapper, and post it on the Internet (BTW, it costs me $10 a month for this web site. I don't know if that adds to my 'loser-ness' or not. Maybe I'm a hero?). I get pleas from people asking to bring back candy bars and asking why I stopped making them in the first place. I think my barely-there web skills hardly pass for a slick, big-time candy company's web page. It's scary if you think about it. BTW, I'm serious thinking about adding advertising. I have no idea how I would or what I would charge (NO POP UPS!!!), but if you're an Internet candy seller and would be interested, leave me a comment. I get about 50 hits a day on the main wrapper page and my web site is in Steve Almond's book Candyfreak. Rant (and shameless plug for sponsors) over. Back to candy bar wrapper fun."

I think that's a mistake as the comments I received for the dark chocolate far outweigh the comments for the white. Again, standard advice, call the number on the wrapper and tell them you like the dark chocolate and want them back. Reese's number is 1-800-468-1714 and you can call weekdays from 9 to 4 EST."

Mike says "Good luck finding them! I haven't seen them in quite some time and I had a hard time finding them when they were out. There's no mention of them at all on the Reese's web site. Who knows thou...they could come back. My standard advice...call Reese's and tell them you liked them and want them back. The more they know people liked them, the better chance of seeing them again."

When I was a child growing up in the mountains of Puerto Rico in a town named Toa Alta, I would go to the back of my school and there was a hole in the fence that connected with this ladies house and she would sell bags of chips and soda to all the school kids. I would go see her every day and get my bag of munchos and today it is the only chip I like. I came across your page because when I was a young teen I would spend my summer with my grandparents in San Juan and to make money I started a small business (like the woman at my school) with my little brother and my cousin. Today about 15 years later my grandmother still has the little store and sells munchos like I did when I was 13. Now I live in Washington DC and am on Vacation in Puerto Rico with my family and my grandmother needed me to make her a new sign for her little business (selling sodas, chips and gum to the kids in the neiboorhood). Every time I see munchos I have to get some, they remind me of home and my childhood so I just had to send you a message to let you know. You know frito-Ley doesn’t even have munchos or funyuns on their web site? Well thanks for letting me share my story"

Mike says "I'll agree with you on the miniatures. Unless you stuff like three of them in your mouth at one time. Uh, not that I've done that or anything (btw, I ALWAYS eat Hershey Kisses two at a time). But I'm gonna disagree on the natural peanut butter Reese's idea. I love the peanut butter in the Reese's.

Second, I don't know of any web site to vote on the limited edition candy bars that seem to suddenly be all over the place (but for too short of a time). Your best bet is to call the candy company with their toll free number listed on the wrapper. Make sure they know you like their product. Don't hope that someone else will do it. Grab a wrapper and find the number, or some numbers you can get from the scans of the wrappers on my page. It's painless and I think makes more of an impact than emailing the company."

I have went to Walgreens, CVS, Krogers, local conveince stores, etc, etc, etc. For some reason, the Krackel bar has been removed from the shelf.

They have every other Hershey product known to man. Anyone else have this problem?"

Mike says "I have noticed in the past that Krackel bars are harder to find. I'm guessing because Nestle Crunch is probably the first choice of many and the stores figure why have two bars that are basically the same when most people buy Nestle Crunch bars. Also, candy companies actually pay to have their candy in the bigger stores (they're called slot fees). Maybe Hershey has decided it's not worth the money to put Krackel bars in the stores there. You could ask the manager of the stores to stock them. If they think there's a demand for a product, you know they'll try to get it in."

Mike says "First off, Overload is made by Nestle, not Reese's. One taste of the peanut butter in Overload and you'll know it's not a Reese's product. I see the Overloads (there's at least two versions) in, of all places, Toys R Us. As a matter of fact, that's about the only place I've seen them. They might be available at some online candy stores, but one of my rules is not to recommend any 'stores' that I haven't personally used before. You could try eBay too."

Mike says "While I would be touched someone would build a web site like that, I think you should create a web site about all your interests. A simple link to my website somewhere on your page would be nice. And as far as the favorite candy bar question...I think you're right. I try to think of it as the old "If I was stuck on a deserted island" type thing. If I was on that island, I would want Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. They are my all time favorite. I have my standard top five candy bars that I buy, but on any given day, the order changes from top favorite to number 5 favorite."

After many people wrote in to tell me the Reese's Big Cup was great (I said they were ok and prefer the regular Reese's cups), I tried another one from my local Eckard Drugs. I admit...I was wrong. They are damn good. Keep in mind that I have been on a diet since March first (lost more than ten pounds so far!) and have had little chocolate when I used to eat chocolate, seriously, like everyday. I even had some of those "milk chocolate flavored" (read: not real chocolate) Easter candy and liked them too! But seriously, the Reese's Big Cup is fantastic."

I guess we have the white chocolate big cup to look forward to. Add me to the list of people that like the Zero bar. Or as my comment used to say: the "anti-Snickers". It's about the only white chocolate bar I do like. Quite tasty and unique. What do you think about Almond Snicker's? I don't think it's as good as the Mars bar it has replaced was. I recently found 3 Mars bars on the shelf at a local drug store. I bought them along with 3 almond Snickers and conducted a blind taste test. Unfortunately the Mars Bars were way past their "best before" date and it was evident. The snickers won near unanimously."

Mike says "The Almond Snickers aren't bad. They fooled me as I'm not a big Mars bar fan, but when they stopped selling them as Mars bars and slapped the Snickers name on it, I bought one and liked it. There's a store in Pittsburgh that sells candy from around the world and they have Mars bars...I believe they are from Canada or England. A side note, Brad's site was in a way an inspiration for me to create mine...although his is slicker and has won awards!"

Both are being sold at the site and you can order either one. I wonder what Hershey will come up with next? I think something that would sell ridiculously well would be a Hershey Peanut Butter Cup 4-Pack with each cup being a differnt flavor. For instance, one cup is dark chocolate, one cup is white chocolate, one cup is inside out and the last cup could be either the regular cup or the honey roasted peanut cup. Then with Kit Kat they could do the same thing with each of the four sticks. Make one stick white chocolate, one stick dark chocolate, another stick orange chocolate then the last one either, strawberry, mint or regular. Now that sounds good."

I also wanted to say about Mint and Orange Kit Kat, by reading the comments it seems as though it is very hard to get them in the US. Over here you can just buy them at any supermarket and they aren't limited edition. And do you have Kit Kat Cubes? They are bite sized Kit Kats and are a recent release over here.

I'd love to try the Special Edition Reeses cups, we used to be able to buy the normal ones but now they are gone! I also love Oreos but the Co-op stopped selling them!! I need to go to Asda since they are the same company as Walmart and I heard they sell them. I found you can buy a few of the US chocolates in my local Poundland, things like Toffifee but that's about it. Still Luv the site, keep up the good work!

While Baby Ruth and Oh Henry have a very bland, nondescript, flavorless quality, the Rally had a distinctive Butterscotchy-Chocolate flavor, absolutely fantastic. I have searched the web and found that Hershey's websites in Brazil and South Korea show the Rally bar as being available in those two countries, and someone on a website said he bought some in Australia.

I was in a Giant Eagle grocery store Friday the 13th and they had some White Chocolate Reese's. I don't like them that much, so I didn't buy any."

Your information given to all whom read it, is well done by you also. I was wondering how much candy bar wrappers are worth. That's what brought me to your website. I have a few oldie wrappers of a milky way bar(1920)A few wrigleys gum wrappers too. They are from the 1920's too. Instead of yellow they are green and white stripes. Of the juicy fruit flavor kind that is. They were found while tearing down an old building in Kentucky. I thought they were something cool to hold onto. Plus they are interesting conversation pieces to own. Thank you for making your site available to all. Good luck with it too."

Mike says "Thanks for the kind words about the web site. I have fun with it and it's neat to read the comments people leave. About the old wrappers...I'm sure there's a market out there for them somewhere. I just don't know where or who you would turn to. Maybe an antique store would know of someone. Of course, there's always eBay. But with eBay, you would have to sell them and I get the feeling you don't want to sell them, you were just wondering how much they were worth."

Mike says "John is talking about Reese's Fast Break and how when they first came out, the wrapper was blue, but now it's orange. My feeling is that when it first came out, it wasn't doing well so they switched to the familiar orange color of other Reese's products to let people know that it was a Reese's product. The color orange is almost like a trademark with Reese's and I don't know why they didn't start out with the orange wrapper right away. Anyway, if you see one in a blue wrapper, it's old!!"

I feel that this is better than going to the web site and sending an email (which is too easy for them to ignore). The Hershey people are paying to have the phone lines and are probably more interested in those comments. There's probably X amount of reports that get generated from people's calls!"

The original cups are good, yet most of the chocolate shell(especially the bottom) is quite thin. The miniature version of the cups have too much chocolate and not enough peanut butter. But the Big Cup, in my opinion, is the perfect ratio of peanut butter to chocolate. I wish Hershey would keep making these. I saw them for a brief time and them they were gone quickly. Was it that they were so good everyone wanted one?"

Apparently the different flavors are seasonal in Japan as well, just like some versions of the tasty snack Pocky. Of course I wouldn't have found this site if I hadn't found the mysterious Mint Kit Kat in my Sun Coast bag. There's no bar code or anything for indiviual sale so I'm guessing it was a promotional thing for XMas but it was awesome. I'd love to be able to get the different flavors in the bags of single serving ones, even if only seasonly. If you freeze them they last a decent amount of time. Here's to hoping they offer more flvors, even if only occasionally."

But it's important to remember that (again, as far as I know) they aren't in the regular packaging and probably won't be in with the rest of the candy bars. Look down the aisle with all the bagged candy. Another tip is to look for one of those cardboard display stands since it's a special limited edition."
