Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was a kid growing up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, little corner grocery stores were still the norm as huge supermarkets and gas station convenience stores were still not on the scene. These little Mom and Pop stores carried a little of everything, but a LOT of candy! "Hollywood Brands" candy bars made a bar called the Milkshake. I loved those so much, I wrote a letter to the company. They loved my letter so much, they sent me a box of samples of their other candy bars, including Pay Day, Butternut and Zero.
I loved them all, but the Zero bar was so unique - white fudge coating instead of milk chocolate or dark chocolate... soft, tasty center with delicious caramel. What a treat! Well, Hollywoods Brands sold to Leaf and I think again to Hershey's. The Butternut and Milkshake are gone (Hopefully they'll return someday.). Pay Day is more popular than ever, with a fancy television ad campaign. But Zero is still that unique bar in the background - still the only white coated candy bar I know of and still delicious as ever! ~ Angelo from Virginia
