Monkey Bar Wrapper

Over at the “a sampler of things” blog, Dan has posted some awesome of examples of candy bar wrappers from the 40s and 50s. I have never heard of any of them before. Some of my favorites are:

  • Monkey Bar – what a great name!
  • Cold Turkey – who thought that would sell?
  • Fig Pie – ewww!

Check them all out (with pics) at a sampler of things.

    WOW! My father in law grew up in Kansas City Mo. in the 40s and the Monkey bar was his favorite candy. He still speaks fondly of it to this day. I have looked EVERYWHERE for any reference to this and your page is the only thing I have seen to date. Any chance this is still sold or a recepie is about? PLEASE let me know. Any information would be a help. Thanks!
