Henry would kid around with the young ladies who made the candy. After awhile, they began asking Henry to do little jobs and favors. "Oh Henry, do this" or "Oh Henry, will you get me that?" Later that year (1921) "Oh Henry" became the name of the new candy bar.
I grew up on the "Jersey Shore". My sister and I were both born on the same day thus we were able to share a birthday tradition together.
Each year we would walk to the Boardwalk and head towards the Wheel Of Candy stand. We both had three dollars worth of dimes and placed them on each spot. When the wheel would spin and stop we were always winners! I would say, "here, you pick for your birthday present" and she would return the favor. We always chose a whole box of Oh Henry Candy each.
It was fun to see them available to me once again. Since our birthday is coming up and I am going to be fifty I plan to order a box! And I think I will send one to my sister as well! ~ Jan from New Jersey
