The very best choc covered cherry on earth. Would get home equity loan to buy them-if avail.

I am one of 8 children. My parents owned a small grocery store( back in the late 1960's) as I grew up. One of our favorite candy bars was Cherry Hump. Better than any chocolate covered cherry made today. All that is left behind today is the sweet memories.

The BEST candy bar ever. They had them at the local Pure gasoline station. I always got one after Sunday school. I, too, would pay $20.00 for one now!

I, too, loved them. Who made them, and how do we get them to produce them again? Let's start a movement! Bring back Cherry Humps!!!

Cherry Hump was such a special treat...I can remember them costing 5 cents per candy bar, had two humps which were where the cherries were stored...and so very yummy!

Cherry Hump -- BEST EVER! I, too, would pay $20 for one now. Our local drugstore carried them, and I couldn't wait until after school so I could run to the drugstore and get one for eating on my way home. Oh, how I miss them.

My folks owned a smalltown theater in the mid sixties. I ate more of these things than I can count. The BEST sweet treat, hands down!

I could cry, I'm so happy to find someone else who remembers Cherry Humps. I was beginning to think I imagined them. No one else I know remembers them. I worked in my grandfather's little store in the 60s and loved, loved, loved these. Please find me one.

Schuler Candy Company of Winona, Minnesota made the Cherry Humps candy bars. They sold to the Brock Candy Company in 1971 who discontinued the bars in 1987.

Nit Christmas without them. Our family of seven,mom,dad, us 5 girls lived across the street from a little mom and pop's grocery store. We could not wait for the Cherry Hump candy bars to reach the shelves. I could eat a box by myself. This is truly a tradition that is missed by so many. Would love to taste one just one more time.

It was my favorite candy bar when I was in college. I was talking about it today, and no one had heard of it before. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. You all are right--they don't make them like that anymore!

Cherry Humps, what can I say??? The best candy bar ever made. Have never found a candy bar equal to it. If a company would start making the original ones again they would make a small fortune. Cause I do believe most of us would clean the shelves. Please bring them back!!!!!

I loved these! Movie theaters and skating rinks had them, and the grocery store across the street from the church had them; I'd buy one each Wednesday on my walk from school to Catechism class.

When I was just a small child, my mother would send me to the corner market to buy some for her. Back then, candy bars were six for a quarter.

When I was in the 4th grade we could buy candy snacks in the afternoon. An 8th grader would come around with a box of different snacks. Nothing was as good as the cherry hump, Tom's brand. I have never tasted another chocolate covered cherry like it in my life and I am 59 years old. I would buy a case if they were available.

Without a doubt,the best candy ever made! I heard they were discontinued because they melted during shipping.It's been close to 50 years since I've eaten one,but I still dream about them.

Our local funeral director loved the Cherry Hump. I would love to find them for a gift to Arvie.

Cherry humps were the best, so good it was like being hooked on a drug. I cry when I think about how the best thing was taken away from all of us.
Peggy - September 27, 2012 - Report this comment
I can remember going to the store and gently shaking the package to be sure it was not melted or else all the good part would be gone. These were the best candy bars ever and I was truly hooked on them. I could not wait to get them and would give anything to be able to get another one now. I can still remember how they tasted. They were the best ever. I'm sorry for anyone that did not have the opportunity to try one.

Eddie's 5th Avenue Grocery in Belle Fourche, South Dakota sold me a dime's worth of candy every week. My mom had plenty of time to shop while I sat down on the floor in front of the candy rack, scratching my head under my cowboy hat and trying to decide if I was going to buy 20 whole pieces of 2-for-a-penny candy or one Cherry Hump. Quality versus quantity is a hard one for a 5 year old. I wish I could make that choice now.

I would go to the movies on Saturday afternoon when I was a child and either got a Cherry Hump candy (this seems to be different from most I have seen described online as it was a mound of chocolate, about 2 inches wide and about that tall,and inside was a single cherry with a liquid center surrounding it. I can still see the pink package with the picture of the cherry on it.

I have never talked to anyone that remembers the Cherry Hump candy bar. It was my favorite candy when we went to the corner store. It was so good and have never had anything like it.

Somebody here needs to buy a candy factory and start making these things again!

I also enjoyed cherry hump candy bars from a small town grocery store in Upton Ky. But that was back in the mid 70's to the mid 80's. I sure am glad someone else remembers how great they were. They came in a blue and white wax paper wrapping with waxed cardboard under the candy. Sure do wish I could have one at this very minute!!

google: cherry hump candy should see a link to Made in Winona The history of Winona's most famous candy. You can see a picture of a box full of Cherry Humps!

Cherry Humps were made by Schuler candy of Winona Minnesota from 1913 until they went out of business in 1987. At their peak Cherry Humps was the 16th best selling candy bar in America. I loved them dearly, along with Valo-milk marshmallow cups and Boyer peanut butter smoothies...

When I was a small girl, many years ago, I went to the movies every Saturday afternoon. I had to make a choice between the Cherry Mash and the Cherry Hump (the one in the pink wrapper, with a picture of a single cherry, chocolate outside with a single cherry and liquid inside. I find the Cherry Mash candy at Hobby Lobby craft stores now but has been many years since I have enjoyed or seen a Cherry Hump.
