Something pleasant to do with your spare dime? Dime? These days you can't even get a dime for ten cents, lucky for a half a chocolate chip for a quarter, barely get an almond for a dollar. Mars goes way back in the candy bar game. They hit a real smash with that Mars Bar.
Reese you clever bastard. The chocolate peanut butter cup is genius. The kind of love at first bite people remember for the rest of their life. Talk about brand loyalty. Reese's are an American icon.
Pez are a true global force in candy culture. There are people out there so enamored of them that they dedicate their lives, incomes, sanity, family and friends to Pez collecting. Now that's relevance.
UPDATE: The Charleston Chew did not appear in the movie Half Baked, and Dave Chappelle never cosigned it. It was the Abba Zabba that appeared in Half Baked not the Charleston Chew. Short Order apologizes for our Half Baked memory.
The Hershey Bar is a no brainer. Far as we know they've always been at the top of the game. Would be nice to go back in time and be the first person to say "hey why don't we make chocolate, wrap it up and sell it?"
Check out this old Lifesavers advert. It's racist, it's sexist, mysoginistic, xenophobic, narrow minded and well produced, you know pretty much like a lot of ads being made today. Lifesavers have been around forever.
Tootsie Rolls are our number 1 choice for classic vintage old time candy that is still relevant today. They always were, and they always will be. Tootsie Rolls are the neverdying grandma of all that is American candy.
Now here are some D-Listers that may or may not continue to exist....
Talk about a waste of advertising budget. This ad looks like they hired David Lynch to run their campaign. From the creepy kid face decapitated from a body to the weird sludge pouring out of the bowl, nothin about it makes us want to try Fruit Gums.
Hahahah. Look at her hat, his hand, that piglike face. Too funny.
