Candybars Circa 1979

Here's a wonderful display of .25 cent candy bars. This vintage black and white photo is dated 1979. It's found a new home in the Kimmerle Candy Collection.

In '79 Reese's Pieces (right corner) were brand new on the market. They would go on to gain massive popularity when they were prominently featured in the 1982 movie, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial.
Enjoy!

  1. What's that between the Snickers and the 5th Avenue?

  2. Thanks! Wedged between 5th Avenue (then produced by Luden's) and Snicker's is the 3 Musketeers Bar. This photo is from around the time a popular 3 Musketeers ad touted "All for one, one for all". Happy New Year!
