Top Ten Candy Jingles

Kit Kat - gimme a break

Gimme a break, gimme a break…

Memorable, catchy, and eternally connected to various wonderful sweets, candy jingles are the happy little tunes that remind us of how good candy can be. Some of them are sweet, some are weird, and some are, well, ridiculous, but they’re all a lot of fun to listen to. A good candy jingle will stick in your head for days, and a great candy jingle will stay with you for decades, no matter how hard you try to shake it.

I realize that not everyone will agree with this list: the soundtrack to many childhoods includes a few candy jingles for everyone, and these are simply the ones that stood out in mine. If you have a jingle that you loved that isn’t on this list, let us know! We’d love to hear from you.

That being said, we at Candy Addict bring you…

    That darn Nestle’s jingle has stuck in my head since I was a kid, “N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestle’s makes the very best…choc-lit!”

    And who can forget Choo Choo Charley and the Good’n'Plenty rap, synched to the train’s chugging along?

    I’m sure some other one will come to me in the middle of the night, then I’ll never be able to get back to sleep!

    You were close, but the greatest candy commercial ever is the one with Mr. Owl. How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? *CRUNCH* The world may never know…


    RESPONSE:That commercial had no jingle though. This was not a list of the top ten commercials, it was a list of the top 10 jingles, so that commercial does not fit in.

    Does anyone else find that all of the Mentos commercials were very… white? In my social circle (such as it was) at the time of those commercials, we referred to Mentos as “The Official Snack Food of the Aryan Race.” Try watching one or two of them with that in mind, and see what you think.

    Hershey’s is closing their plant in Hershey Pa and moving it to Mexico. Laying off 1,300 American workers. This will make their share holders more money.I won’t ever buy it again. I have already signed a petiton saying I will not buy it. I never would have believed that Hershey would go unAmerican.

    LM says:

    Hershey’s announced it will be moving some of its operations out of the US (off to Mexico!) cutting 1,500 jobs. If we stop buying hershey products, then we make a point we don’t accept this. Save our jobs! sign the petition!!

    the snickers commercial ^.^

    After reading this post, the one that came back to me — which I still have stuck in my head decades later — is for Freshen-up Gum. It went like this (singing): “Freshen your breath with freshen-up (freshen-uh-uppp)… The gum that goes squirt. (Love that squirt!)”

    Which also leads me to think of the related ear-worm of a jingle “brush your breath, brush your breath, brush your breath with Dentyne!”

    Argggh. Get out of my head.

    Jarons says:

    What about the kid going to ask Mr. Owl how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop, does that count as a jingle or just a kickin campaign
    Also I hated Tootsie rolls as a kid but loved the commercials so much and was brainwashed into eating them as an adult

    Heather says:

    You forgot Push-Pops! When I was a kid, I would always sing along with that catchy jingle: “Push-Pops burst with real fruit flavor, push it down and save some for later!” I also thought the jingle for Wonderballs (if anyone else remembers those) was annoying, but forever stuck in my head: “Oh I wonder wonder what’s in my Wonderball!”

    the snickers commercial with Jack Mulcahy, singing this: Happy peanuts soar over chocolate covered mountaintops and waterfalls of caramel. Prancing nougat in a meadow sings a song of satisfaction to the world.

    that was good.

    What about B-O-N-O-M-O Bonomo Turkish Taffy? How could you NOT include “Chocolate is scrumptious when it crunches, that’s why I love Nestle Crunch”? And where’s “Wrigley Spearmint gum, gum, gum…carry the big fresh flavor… wherever you go, whatever you do… it’s the finest spearmint flavor” with the giant packs of Wrigley’s tucked under everybody’s armpit?

    The ad features a two-headed creature singing:
    “Bit-O-Honey goes a long long way.
    If you have one head, it lasts all day.”

    “Oh Oh Oh! It’s Bonomo’s…………….Candy”

    Brown & Haley Mountain Bar
    “Brown & Haley makes ‘em daily………except Sundays”

    Big Hunk: Cartoon Indian chief say:
    Hunka..Hunk..Big Hunk…Biggest candy bar on reservation!

    Jim D. says:

    Actually, the creature singing the Bit-O-Honey song was a six headed creature. The Bit-O-Honey candy bar contained six pieces. Each head of the six headed creature ate a piece of the Bit-O-Honey and thus it was consumed in a few seconds. But, as the six headed creature said, “if you had one head, it would last all day.

    I would LOVE to hear the Good’n Fruity Candy jingle from the early 70s. Here’s how much I remember of the song:
    (lyrics are not exact)

    There are rainbows in every package of GoodnFruity Candy…..
    Cherry tastes good like the 4th of July
    Lemon takes the sun right out of the sky
    Orange makes you laugh til the sun goes down
    and ?????? (can’t remember the last flavor part)
    Open up a box and you’ll see that there are
    rainbows in a package of GnF candy
    Rainbows in a package of GnF candy!! (fade)

    *If anyone has this song & the correct lyrics
    PLEASE let me know

    Georgette Thanks!!!

    Crunchy crunchy crunchy Nestle’s Crunch is so crunchy
    bite after bite there’s crunch after crunch
    Plenty milk chocolate with plenty to munch….

    Not only very crunchy and munchy but apparently also soothes surly movie ushers!

    My favorite candy ad though is Almond Joy/Mounds. Liked the ads, like the song, which is very good at staying in one’s memory forever!

    I love the jingle for Mars Junior Bars are those great teny weeny bars everybody is buying in polyethelene bags. They have snickers, three muskateers, forever yours, milky way too. Hide ‘em in your pockets, conceal ‘em in your cuffs…… that’s all I can remember but I’d sure like to know the rest of the words for it.

    Mars Junior Bars are those teeny weeny little bars everybody is buying in polyethylene bags; they’ve got Snickers, Three Musketeers, Forever Yours, Milky Ways too; made of pure chocolate and all that good stuff; put ‘em in your pockets, or hide ‘em in your cuff. If you don’t want to lug aroud big bulky bars, Mars Junior Bars are for you.

    Don’t know if it’s accurate. I learned it from my brother back in the 60s, maybe?

    I’m having fun checking out your website. But I must mention that 5 of the 10 Candy Jingle videos are no longer available. Maybe you could do an update?
    As for suggestions, I remember buying Bonomo Turkish Taffy when I was a little girl. I would come home from the candy store and put my Turkish Taffy in the freezer overnight. Then the next day, I’d take it out of the freezer, slam it on the counter, and it would break into lots of pieces. Easy to eat and easy to share. Yum!
