Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Look Bars cost 5 cents each when I was growing up in Southern California in the '60s. As soon as I got my weekly allowance on Saturday, I would rush to the corner store and buy at least one Look Bar. I loved the chewiness and the dark chocolate. Sometimes I'd put it in the refrigerator to get cold then crack it on the kitchen table to get bite-sized pieces. Part of the reason I love dark chocolate is because of Look Bars.
A couple of months ago I mentioned Look bars to a friend of mine. I told her they were my favorite childhood candy memory and that I missed them. She had never heard of them. I didn't think anybody made them anymore. End of story? No. The other day we met for lunch to celebrate my birthday, and there was a bag filled with Look Bars waiting for me! I just couldn't believe my luck that they're still making them and that I have a friend who would go to the effort of getting them for me. I'm rationing them, but they're going quickly and I'll order some for myself very soon. ~ Karen from North Carolina
