RE: Lunch Bar!
Frankly, I think Halloween was the only time these abominations were ever sold. Certainly it was the only time we saw them. I think cheapskates bought them because you got more in a bag. And since the apartment complex I lived in included 400 townhouses with an average of 1.2 kids per unit.... that was a helluva lot of candy to buy.
I remember that we ALL hated them! You know how kids will eat anything? Not Lunch Bars! We'd seperate them out and try to trade them to other, less discerning kids, usually 3-4 Lunch Bars in exchange for something by Mars, Nestle, or Hershey. Or they would sit in the plastic jack'o'lantern candy bucket MONTHS after all the other candy was eaten, finally to be thrown out by moms in the Spring.
