Chunky Bars

*drools* Chunky bars. . . . they’re only the most delicious and holy thing to land on earth itself. . .and it’s beautiful. Many people don’t know what they are because they’re not sold in many places. I’ve only seen them sold in Walgreens and some Walmarts and maybe a few gas stations, which leads me to believe that they’re not the most popular candy made by Nestle` anymore.

Chunky bars started being made in New York during the 1930’s. Originally, it was a chocolate bar with Brazilian nuts, cashews, and raisins and was shaped like a pyramid. Due to packaging issues and a shift in ownership over to Nestle`, the shape was changed to a square and their are now just raisins and peanuts made in it. There’s not much to it, other than the fact that it’s clearly very very old. . .old and delicious. . . .

Some tiny additional tid bits would be that the creator, Philip Silvershein, named it after his granddaughter, who happened to be. . .chunky *shrug* Another one is the fact that the bar was originally shaped strangely briefly, which I mentioned before. If you’d like to see the commercial for this delicious chocolate bar, here’s the link:
