Description
Chocolate covered peanut log with caramel nougat inside. It seemed to be aimed squarely at Snickers lovers; however, it was, unfortunately, a close second. It's hard to find anyone that even remembers them. I grew up near Hershey, so perhaps it was only test marketed locally?

The Rally was my favorite candy bar of all time! I lived in Ky. near Cincinnati, Ohio, so they were not just a local thing. The closest thing to them now is the Oh Henry!

I just came back from Hershey Park. Chocolate World is selling four packs of Rally Bar's in an exclusive limited return.

The first time I lived in Hershey, my family took a tour of the Chocolate Factory (this was before they built Chocolate World), must have been 1968 or 1969. They were gining out samples from their test kitchen and the samples were to become the Rally Bar.. So maybe they brought them back for their 40th Anniversary..

The Rally bar was my favorite growing up outside Chicago, IL in the '70's. I wish they'd bring it back.

My dad was a district manager for Hershey in Billings, Montana and the Rally bar was my favorite. Needless to say we had LOTS of chocolate in the house!

The Rally Bar was my absolute favorite while growing up in North Carolina. My dad would stop and get my brother and I a Rally Bar for "quick energy" before our little league baseball games. I sure miss those Rally Bars...

Rally bars were my favorite when they were in production. They were easy to find wherever I went in Ohio. When my kids were small, we toured the Hershey plant and bought Rally bars when we finished the tour. So.. they might be available now???

My brother-in=law and I bought some Rally bars in Hershey yesterday at Chocolate World. I don't know if you can find them anywhere else or not. They were right next to one of the registers.

Yup, I bought some in Chocolate World today. Right next to the register. There were also Grand Slam bars which are also out of production.

I bought some more Rally bars at Chocolate World on August 21. They are no longer by the register. An employee showed me where they were, across the room. If you go to Chocolate World and can't find them, please ask an employee. The one that I asked was most helpful.

Chocolate World in Hershey is now out of Rally bars and they have no knowledge of when more will be made. I was disappointed, because I wanted to buy some as part of a Christmas gift.

The Rally bar was my favorite as a kid. Wondering if you can order online. From Philadephia here. I want to see if they are as awesome as I remember!

I grew up in Houston and we had the rally bar, too. It was my favorite and I would love to find some. I had one in my lunch every day!

I bought my first Rally Bar from the 7-11 store in Freeport, NY on the way home from Junior High School in 1973. I took my first bite in front of the store and it tasted funny. I looked down and saw the whole candy covered with tiny crawling white worms. I spit it out and continued spitting it onto the sidewalk. I brought the candy back inside and showed the clerk. He just told me to take another. I grabbed a different candy. He said that I had to take another Rally Bar. I ignored him and just walked out with the other candy. I should have asked for my money back or complained to 7-11 company but I just walked home. Forty years later I still have not been able to eat another Rally Bar.

I loved Rally bars as a kid. I haven't seen them in years. The closest I've had is a Baby Ruth. Just tried an Oh Henry and it didn't strike a chord.

I must say the Rally Bar was my favorite candy bar by far I used eat those after Basketball practice or games in my teens or at game when the jv's or Varsity teams played .I have not found one to takes its place.I often mention them to my wife anytime I get a candy bar now, she can probably tell the stories herself by now and I sure wish they would make a comeback, but I ask don't change a thing.They need to be the same.I'll be waiting!Oh by the way if you see a company out there that used to make the Burrows fudgetown cookies I'll take a couple boxes of those aswell

i work at a walgreens in milwaukee and we just received a shipment of like a bajillion rally bars. They seem different than the previous oh henry! repacks i've had and are in a red package not white. I'm thinking they are trying to recreate the brand.

I just bought 3 at Walgreens in Laplace, La. yesterday. Had not seen them since the '70s. Wrapper is mostly red now.
Thom - October 04, 2013 - Report this comment
