The Great American Candy Bar Book (1982)

The Great American Candy Bar Book
Here is an affectionate, mouth-watering history of the candy bar, from the original Hershey bar, in 1894, to Snickers, the most popular bar nationwide today. Nothing is left out, from regional specialties such as Goo-Goo Cluster and Cherry Humps to forgotten favorites such as Chicken Dinner, Duck Lunch, Walnettos, Dipsy Doodle, Buck Private, and Leaping Lena. Also recalled here are the rain of Baby Ruth bars over Pittsburgh, the 3100-pound Clark bar, Bobby Riggs and the 22-pound Sugar Daddy, and much, much more.
