I have fond memories of this candy bar made by Nestle. My dad used to stop at this little candy store on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn. Each weekend my sister and I got a Triple Decker Bar and we loved them! I remember separating the layers with my teeth because back then there was no white chocolate bars. I wanted to taste the white part by itself. Ahhh... fond memories of my childhood.

Man I loved these! Brought them to school for my 10th birthday in October 1971. I wish they'd bring them back.

I remember buying this candy bar at Woolworth's in Phila. In the early 70s. Three layers of chocolate: dark choco, milk choco and white choco. They should bring it back since it's great for chocoholics!

I absolutely LOVED these candy bars. They should definitely bring this one back. I think this one contributed to my being a chocoholic!

I think I got these at Rite-Aid in the mid-80's. Why are we thinking about these now, Barb? I don't remember that being the name mentioned, and I thought it was some obscure company, Not Nestles. Anybody have a wrapper picture? dpd12 AT Yahoo dot com.

I used to get them out of the candy machine at work in the 70's. As soon as the candy man filled the machine and left, my boss and I would run back and buy them and store in our desk drawer. They went so quickly otherwise. please bring this candy bar back!!!!!! The best one ever!!!!!!!!

We lived accross the street from a Lil General Store and I used to run over there to get a Triple Decker Bar and an Icee, it was great to dip the candy bar into the icee and hold it there until it got really cold almost frozen and then eat it! Nestles this was the best Candy Bar ever you should really bring it back!

It was such a great candy bar I googled it 30 years after it was discontinued.

My mom would buy these by the case. She'd hide try to hide them under the kitchen counter so that the six of us kids didn't eat them all at once, but as the youngest, I could sniff these out anywhere!! Even now, at age 48, I can picture the red, white and blue wrapper, the layers that separated if you bit them just the right way, the beauty of the layers...aaahhh...what I wouldn't give for just one more Triple Decker Bar. Please, Nestles, bring them back!

In the mid '60's I used to work for a Pontiac dealership here in Southern California and we had a candy machine next to the parts department. Two of the sections were devoted to the Triple Decker. It sold out every week. It was the best candy bar ever!! I do wish they would bring it back.

I ate Triple Deckers in 1962-63 at 12 and 13. I probably quit when acne threatened, but some years later, I noticed they had disappeared from existence. A couple of years ago, I emailed Nestle's asking them to bring back the Triple Decker bar, explaining how delicious they were (nothing, I mean nothing, can compare to a Triple Decker), reminding them that people would buy and eat them up as fast as they could be manufactured, and that people today who've never had one would go mad with delight. I got back a stiff rebuff to the effect that their corporate decision favored discontinuing that candy bar and they are not likely to reconsider, thank you and good day. Nice folks.

This is the best candy bar in the world and has never been matched. I believe they discontinued the wrong candy bar. I could name quite a few that I would bypass in favor of the return of the Triple Decker Bar.

Yes, I agree, best candy bar ever. I ate them in the early 70s, my grandma would buy them for me, even thought they cost more than most other bars. I can't believe Nestle doesn't realize how well it would be received if they brought it back.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I actually found a webpage talking about this absolutely amazing triple-layered chocolate bar! I had asked some of my friends if they remembered it, and they made me feel like I had made it all up in my head! Nestle definitely made a huge mistake when it discontinued it. If they don't want to bring it back, I wish another chocolate company would reconsider. Lindt has super smooth, amazing chocolate - their triple decker would be even better than Nestle's! Any other chocoholics out there want to petition Lindt???

Okay...WOW My dad used to own a vending company and I grew up on Triple Deckers and I still try to mix dark, white and milk chocolate candy to get the taste. I wish they would bring them back too. Time to contact Nestle and ask them to give it a shot.

In the 60's, we kids wet to a local theatre on Saturday mornings for 3 Stooges, cartoons and similar fare. One of the highlights was getting a TDB, this was premium stuff - it blew away all other candy bars. Sometimes chewed, but usually sucked away tasting the different layers and their fine flavors. Theatre still there, looks neary the same but now serves decent food and good tap beers. But alas, no Triple Decker Bars. Someone please bring them back!

I was told that they still make them in KC METRO ON THE Kansas SIDE ,BUT I DON'T HAVE A NAME OF THE COMPANY .

Trader Joes, for the holidays, has basically the same idea: layers of white, milk and dark chocolate, in little square candies. Pretty close to a Triple Decker, as far as I can remember!

I wrote a report on this candy bar in 5th grade, so I was 11 yrs old, wish they still had it, wish I was still 11 yrs old.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: Nestle Triple Decker Bar TV commercial with Little Hans, the stop-motion Swiss spokesman, seen making the bars inside his chocolate house/factory. This aired on "Here Comes the Grump" cartoon show over NBC (1/10/70). Triple Decker Bar was not a big seller, but lasted into 1972. Cartoon actor Paul Frees voiced Little Hans, for near the last time. Hans was retired by mid-1970.

I absolutely loved these! At our grade school I always bought it for a lunch treat on Wednesdays when we had hot dog or hamburger day. I remember something from the commercial about it being 'ham on rye?' Wish they'd make them again.💖

Gigi: In the 1970 commercial, Little Hans had brought a ham on rye sandwich in his lunch box. He looked at it, threw it away, saying in disgust, "Ham on rye...PHOOEY!!" He made himself a sandwich of Nestle Triple Decker chocolate. A Saturday morning favorite!

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, this commercial with Little Hans building a see-saw with a Nestle Triple Decker. The bar breaks when Hans sits on it, after placing a counterweight on the other end. This aired on "Jonny Quest" over CBS (9/28/68). Originally in prime time on ABC (1964-65), "Jonny Quest" was criticized as being too violent and scary for little kids (people actually were seen shot or electrocuted to death). In subsequent Saturday reruns, much of the violent content was edited out, making for somewhat disjointed stories. Also an opportunity for the networks to jam in more commercials. Tim Matthesen voiced Jonny, Mike Road as Race Bannon and Don Messick as Dr. Quest.
