RE: Candybar from the 1970's
I couldn't find any picture, but here are three references on the internet about it, one which dates it exactly:
All good things must come to an end. Unfortunately, it may have been one of your Hometown Favorites! This list represents products requested by our customers, that we have confirmed are no longer in production. You can stop looking! They are no longer available:

A Few Questions about Almond Joy, Mounds & Peter Paul
with Lisa Flaherty, great-granddaughter of one of Peter Paul's founders
8.) With your great-grandfather being one of the co-founders of the company and your grandfather the Peter Paul President, were you pretty much forced to like the taste of coconut as a kid?
It was either eat coconut or starve.
No really, there wasn't pressure. Coconut certainly was the defining element of Peter Paul. From the outset, they felt they needed a distinct brand identity, and specialty, and although coconut was it, they still had other non-coconut creations like caramel candy, peanut butter, chcolate mints, cream mints, lollipops, gum, etc.
When I was small I loved the ones called "No Jellies" (since discontinued) which were a peanut butter and chocolate candy Peter Paul made in the 70s. Coconut wasn't a forced food, but you better believe that on Halloween, my mom ensured that we'd give out nothing but Peter Paul product. (Mounds, Almond Joys, Whistle Pops or Powerhouses.)
In 1972 there was a new peanut-butter flavored candy bar called "No Jelly." As a promotion, the Peter Paul candy company issued a tab that read, "McGovern No Jelly," and a matching one for Nixon.
By the way, Hershey's now owns Peter Paul, even though the plant in Naugatuck, Conneticut, still manufactures Peter Paul products.
