Hershey made it, chocolate with crispy rice and caramel(I think). Today it would have to be called the ,000,000 bar to get attention.

Yeah they call them 100grand bars now. And the crispies are different now. Little round spheroids and they definitly don't taste the same, actually they suck now. This last halloween 2008 a friend tried to give me a bag of them and I just left them behind because they sucked.

Weren't the 100,000 bars kinda like lattice and a lot longer and only made of carmel and covered in chocolate? Maybe I am remembering a different candy bar?

Actually, Nestle made it, not Hershey. One of my favourites, and one of those things I would look for when I went to the US.

The Nestle $100,000 (later 100 Grand) was introduced in 1965. Packed with crispy rice and caramel, is a great candy bar. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, two early TV commercials. First, a stop-motion cartoon with Little Hans, the Swiss spokesman for $100,000 Bar (voiced by Paul Frees). This aired on the "pink Panther" cartoon show over NBC (10/18/69). Second, for Nestle Crunch with Little Hans (a real boy interacts with the cartoon), in which Hans tears off and eats a piece of his house (made of chocolate). This aired on the "Road Runner" cartoon show over CBS (2/17/68). Along with the name change (1978), the only other major change was the wrapper design (1972, to red with guy's head on left end).

YouTube has a variant of the Nestle Crunch Bar TV commercial mentioned last time. In this one, Little Hans karate-chops a piece of the door on his chocolate house. This aired on the "Space Kidettes" (Hanna-Barbera) cartoon show over NBC (9/2/67) A cross-promotion with the cartoon "Mighty Samson and Goliath" followed. Still looking for more early commercials for the $100,000 Bar.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a TV spot showing several kids spreading the gooey caramel, then their images are projected on the candy bar wrapper. This aired on "Hot Hero Sandwich" over NBC (10/27/79). The show combined celebrity interviews with musical numbers and comical skits featuring several young people. Among those, Paul O'Keefe, who was in a few teen movies. Also, Denny Dillon, a young lady who later was an SNL regular (1980-81), and played a bailiff on "Night Court" (1989-90). Some of the skits in "Hot Hero" dealt with drug use and shoplifting, as well as leadership and sportsmanship. The show was aimed at those 11 to 14 years old.
