Anyone remember the Mars bars when the were flatter and wider than the MW and Snickers?  The almonds were full halves and on top, under the REAL chocolate.  YUM~!

 
Oh yes! Those were the great days of the Mars bar.

I voted for Snickers, but my favorite is a Blue Monday.  I think it's a regional thing.  It's very good.

I am an idiot and the Peanut Chews I've been buying do indeed say Chew-ets®.
 
On the back of the wrapper it says "Continuing the GOLDENBERG'S® tradition. A favorite for over 87 years."
 
 
Now I see you can buy 'vintage' Goldenberg chews on the Just Born website.

Per the rep at Just Born, it's the exact same candy, they just put it in retro packaging.  So 18 packages are $27, while in stores (new packages) they are 75 cents each.

another great bar is the Marathon bar can not  find it out here in omaha, but when i go home to the UP. we go over to the SOO and buy what we can get at the Zellers store. Put them in the freezer and break them in small pieces and either eat right away or put in hot chocolate for kids, or hot coaco with baileys and marathan bar. There was laso a fiddle faddle peanut bar with or with out chocolate  alot like the planters peanut bar but popcorn and peanuts . ps please bring Molson export back to the US  there is a reason it is called export best red ale ever brewed.

I do not know how it is possible that my favorite still-existing candy "bar" is Peter Paul Mounds. I detest coconut in every form and fashion, with this single exception.


Michael, when you bought your candy at the corner drug store because it was cheaper on your way to the .25 cent matinee. The Peter Paul Mounds and Almond Joy were not the top choices, they were to easy to share. I was thrown out of the Movies one time at 9 years old, I hit a kid in the eye with my Sugar Daddy, man was I in trouble. They made a good weapon and they lasted all day.......................


--Your post made me crack up with laughter, BillyB

 
If I'm not mistaken, when I was a kid in the 50's, I think Mounds and Almond Joy were more expensive than the other candy bars. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Peanut Butter M&M's. I let em melt in my mouth down to the peanut butter. Then I let the peanut butter melt also. Kinda like eatin an oyster. . Peanut M&M's. I let those melt down to the peanut and then eat tha nut.

I got a new kinda Hershey's bar I like... Symphony. I also let that melt in my mouth.

Oh, Kit Kat Bars and Butterfingers... I chew those up.

No one else knew Candy Barr? She was a kinda famous dancer in Dallas back in the 60's. She also knew Jack Ruby.

one of my favorites is a caramello bar. and for a great taste while you are eating popcorn alternate between the popcorn with peanut m&ms.

I also remember the Almond joy and the Mounds being a bit upper class, us Po Folk didn't buy that kind of candy. I remember having to share with my brother so the Mounds made that cut and dry because there was two pieces. I couldn't screw him out of breaking a bar and giving him the smaller half. I had stolen all the money out of his coin collection to buy candy. Every time I talk with him he reminds me about that, Isn't there a statute of limitations about stealing when your 9 years old..........GGEEEZZZZZ he's 64 get over it, maybe 'll send him a $100,000 Dollar bar.........BillyB

Do you mean you didn't follow the rule that whoever breaks the candy bar in two had to allow the other person to choose the "half" he or she wants?

That would be to close to playing fair, I remember some kids would spit on the larger half so the other kid wouldn't ask for it, or want to measure.

Clark Bar is my all time favorite.  Tough to find where I live.  Get my fix from blaircandy.com.

1917- Clark Bars originated in Pittsburgh and could only be found Regionally. I'm from PA and it's still my favorite.
1955- The Clark family sold the company to Beatrice Food Company. Now part of Necco.
 They're available on line:

AND--- Where's the love for Goo-Goo Clusters?????

What about Peanut Patties, those round pink disks found all over Texas?
 
Someone must eat them.
