Please Help on Candy Bar Name Sat, 09/24/05 4:01 AM (permalink)
*OK, this is one that has been driving me mad for years, but I've been trying to remember the name of this candy bar that I grew up with, and I will try to give you as much information as I can remember.

I grew up in rural MA, and in the mid to late '70's, I had a candy bar that I would buy eveytime I went to the local Pharmacy. The bar itself slightly longer than the other bars, but also slightly narrower. The texture of the chocolate was a denser version of the Aero bar, and the bar was sectioned off into 6 or 8 pieces (not sure which) kind of the way a Caramello is, except that the sections had sharper edges. The only other defining feature was that the top of each section had an imprint, that was reminiscient of a "sectioned orange" or half of an orange cross-section, although there was nothing "orangey" about the chocolate. (I guess it might have been a characterization of a setting sun, but I remember never being able to equate the symbol with the name of the candy bar.)

If you can help out with this conundrum I would be ever so grateful. Thanks.

    Was it the seven-up bar?

      Wow... FLASHBACK... But I dont remember the name either.. We had them here in Michigan also (or it may have been in Indiana when I went down there for the summers).. Research time here... I'll try my best to find you (and me) the answer...


      I started to investigate this candy you mention.. Are your parents of European descent? I'm starting to think this is a ethnic snack I used to have as a kid.. (Parents and relatives are from Lativa, Russia and England)...

        Hey spackle,
        I grew up in the merrimack valley area and I'm pretty sure youre thinking of a "SkyBar" since you mentioned that there were ridges at each section. Necco use to make them I'm not sure who makes them now but you can still get them. A 7Up bar is much different (My favorite!)no
        ridges kinda large and square it had seven sections not long like a Skybar. I sure wish they still made 7Up bars! I hope this helps you out. Google Skybar and you'll find lots of places to buy them. I know I've seen them in lil Peach and 7Eleven stores.

          I'm just thinking again maybe you meant a "Chocolite Bar" it had sections no fillings but air bubbles is that it?
