Thanks for your site. I was just remembering Dynamints, that's what led me here. Anyway, you mention the Texan Bar spot, "Last request, Gringo?" Well, Bit-O-Honey had a similar firing squad one, excutioner says, "Do you have a last request?," the condemned man says, "Bit-O-Honey." The punchline: such a big, chewy bar lasts so long, the guy doesn't get shot. Bit-O-Honey was divided into five sections with wax paper. It tasted like honey flavored peanut butter. B.O.H. was impossibly hard in cold weather, but a wonderfully pliable chew in the heat It is still around, I believe, but I fear for my dental work more than I did when I was ten! The 0,000 Bar (now known as the 0 Grand Bar) was/is chocalate, caremel nugat, and rice crispies baked into the top layer. The commercial always showed kids clamping down and stretching the nugat about two feet. I could never get it to go even two inches no matter what I did.
