          Milkshake bars are no longer available unfortunately. I was able to try one before they went away. My mother and grandmother actually worked at the candy factor that made Milkshake bars, Butternut, Zero, and another one that will pop into my head after I have already hit the send button!! She used to love to freeze the Milkshake bars also-must have been that generation!! She told me stories of the bars coming down the line and they would have to pick them up between their fingers and put them on another conveyor belt for wrapping. She said she got really good at picking up four or five per hand. Now that's amazing! The best part of the job was they got to eat as many candy bars as they wanted while they were on shift. Bet they went away with some belly aches!!

            Did they used to have a t.v. commericial for Milkshake bars that had a little kid saying "it's thickerer, yeah, thickerer" ??? I used to love those bars but can't rememeber if that's the one that went with the commercial. Were they kind of thick with air bubbles in the chocolate?

              They always reminded me of a chocolate malted. They were in my top ten of candy bars.

                    I always liked that "Zero" bar, too. I still love white chocolate for its delicate flavor.

                      Zero bars are still around -- in fact, I've recently started seeing bags of miniature Zero bars at Shaw's! Quite nice, although the white coating (it ain't white chocolate, it's more like a colorless version of the shell on a Dairy Queen dipped cone) could stand to be a little thicker, which I swear it used to be. The coating on Zero bars these days often cracks before you even get it out of the wrapper!

                      You know, I remember Clark bars, but I can't for the life of me remember what they were like. I think I only got Zeros and Zagnuts. Maybe the occasional Payday after my palate was mature enough to appreciate that whole salty/sweet thing.

                        i don't know if anyone else will remember this one but-- there are always food rumors floating about concerning this food or that food.. but when i think of milkshake bars (and i used to love them-- and love ZEROs now..) i remember a story when i was a kid about them having rat "stuff" in them -- especially the ones that you got out of a candy machine.. i realize that there's no way that anyone could determine where the candy goes from the 'candy makers' but i believed it =- as a kid.. and now i see how silly that was..

                        the only way to eat them was frozen btw-- i agree...

                          I remember MilkShake bars.. I always thought they were a better version of 3Musketeers which also are better frozen than not. My teeth are not in the best shape now, if I were to eat one frozen I'd have to suck on it like a lolipop..<G>.

                            Not only was the Milk Shake bar sold in movie theaters- well at least here in NY.... they were sold in the machines, and not behind the counter. I remember that I could afford one milk shake bar, one popcorn, one drink, one price of admission to the theater, and carfare (nyc bus) for an entire dollar. This was as late as 1960.. whoa! Flashback time here!

                              I used to get Milkshakes at the Century Meadows Theater in Fresh Meadows, Queens (NY), in the 1950s-60s. Unfrozen, they were 5 cents. Frozen ones cost 6 cents, and they came with an ice cream pop-type stick stuck in them. I loved them! I think they actually tasted like a milk shake.

                                If I remember correctly, Clark bars tasted like peanut butter covered in chocolate. They remind me of the texture of a Butterfinger

                                  Milkshake Bar, I haven't had one of them since like 1980 when I played Little League Baseball, the field had frozen bars at the consession stand.
                                  You can still buy Clark Bars, they are manufactured by Necco, in NY they can be had at Rite Aid drug Stores.

                                    That was the Hollywood Milk Shake candy bar, I believe. I liked them very much.

                                      Clark Bars, Zagnuts, and Zero bars I've all seen very recently up here, though only in specialty candy shops.
                                      If anyone is interested in a little trip down memory lane, you can check out http://sugarmountain.net/ , the best place for candy in Ontario. They have just about everything. If you can't make the trip to Canada, they can ship candies directly to you.

                                        Didn't Hollywood candies also make a bar called "butternut"?

                                          Success! (sort of). Since the time I started reading this thread, and today, someone sent me a web site that specializes in pictures of old cereal boxes, old candy, etc.

                                          So here's a picture of the Milk Shake Bar! And it was made by Hollywood:

                                            Hello!

                                            I remember having Milk Shake candy bars—malted nougat inside milk chocolate; I started eating those back around the 1970s, when my family went to Spring Cove (on U-201 in Gardiner, Maine—now a long-gone memory...) for swimming—I bought 'em at their snack bar next to the road.

                                              I remember seeing that candy bar years ago-- and maybe I even ate one once-- but I cannot remember what it was like. Can anyone tell me what was in a Butternut Bar?

                                                So here's a picture of the Milk Shake Bar! And it was made by Hollywood:

                                                Also, go to the main page to see what else this person has recorded.

                                                Thanks for the link to that site. I've just spent the last 10 minutes looking at old packaging for foods I grew up with it, and I'm reeling from all the memories those packages evoke from so many years ago. And I've barely scratched the surface, there are so many categories and packaging to explore. (How does a person collect all this stuff anyway?)

                                                Okay. I'm feeling very old right now....

                                                  Hershey makes the Zero Bar and Payday which both were made by the Hollywood Candy Company. Hollywood also made the Milk Shake Bar. And I remember my friends and I would always buy them at the local 7 Eleven. Its a shame Hershey dosen't make the Milk Shake Bar.

                                                    I used to enjoy Payday and Milk Shake bars when I was a kid. It's been my experience that whenever a company changes hands, the product never tastes as good as it did before.

                                                      Oh man....haven't thought of a Milkshake bar in years. We used to freeze 'em and then smash 'em into little shards to eat...so good. *drools*

                                                          The commercial that has the slogun "it's thickerer" is from a 70's commercial for the Chunky Candy Bar. Remember, a dad and son around 7 were sitting in a chair together watching tv and the dad asks what candy bar it is and the kid says "it's a Chunky, it's thickerer". Just thought you'd like to know.

                                                            Back in '63-64, there was also a frozen concoction that you could either eat with a spoon or let it thaw out & it would become a milkshake. Anyone else remember these?
