Description
This was my brother's favorite candy bar. It was a chocolate coated fudge bar that had Welch's grape jelly running through it. I haven't seen these in years. Are they still made?

I loved the Fudge bar and Frappe bar. I think you should start making them again. I know it would be a big seller. TY

I second that comment about the Frappe bar. I have looked for it for years. It was very distinctive. I would even eat a really old one, just for old times' sake. Please bring it back!

I'm wondering if this Welch’s Frappe bar is what I remember as I kid in the 1960's in Detroit. I remembe is was chocolate with raisins in it. I know the theather on Plymouth Road just west of Greenfield Rd had them and I think the party/beer store across the street had thme I think. I have been asking aorund about these for a couple of years and no one seems to know wha I am talking about. Any ideas as to if this is the same candy bar.

The Frappe Bar was the best! We used to get it in Boston in the 60s when it cost a nickel, and yes, the flavor was very distinctive. There hasn't been a candy bar like it, and I wish someone would find the secret recipe.

I agree it was the best. I believe it had a rum flavor with raisins, chocolate and nuts. Boy, I wish I could have some now-it really brings back my childhood.

I am so glad to find others who remember this I live in Mass. and every nite I would go to the corner store and buy myself a frappe, I didn't realize they'd stopped making them for a while as I was a kid I looked and looked for years for them, I agree even if i found one now I'd probably eat it. I really wish they'd bring them back, and while i"m at it does anyone remember lunch bars, they were usually sold in the five and ten stores and you couldd get them for 3 cents. or buy a whole box of them, my mum would get them for halloween.

I, along with lots of my family and friends, LOVED (and still do) the Welch's Frappe bars. Let's start a petition to bring them back.

This was my favorite candy bar growing up!!! When I moved to Vermont in the early 70's, I found an old Ben Franklin store with a box on the shelf. I bought the entire box and it was the last time I ever saw them. Recently I have discovered an Easter time treat made by Russell Stover, the "Chocolate Brownie egg" that reminds me of the Welch's Fudge Bar.

The Welch's Frappe was something you just don't forget about. Sometimes I will try to tell someone about it and seems I can not describe it as it deserves. I think if they would bring it back it would be a great seller.

I just completed a Candy challenge on Facebook and the Frappe Bar was not on the list but i started thinking abiut that candy....around Boston in the 50s. Id go with my mom for the weekly shopping trip to the A&P (and your grocerbags would be put in a crate onto rollers and yiud drive up and they would put them into your car) Candy was 6 for a quarter and I had the "job" of selecting the 6 candies ...1 for me and one each for my five brothers. I often selected the Frappe Bar for myself. Loved its distinct flavors!

I'm 84 years old. I was buying Welsh's Rum Frappe bars in 1939 until the war stopped it. They cost a nickel a piece, three for a dime. I guess they started up again after the war was over. I sure wish they would make them again.

Yes it came in a red and gold wrapper, rum flavored with raisins and covered with chocolate and while at UMASS I practically lived on them. I would get 5 for a quarter and go into the pool room all day. No wonder I ended up in the Navy !!!! LOL

I loved the frappe bar and the fudge bar. I remember as a kid going to the store everyday after school to get them, I lived in a small town and they always seemed to be running out of them. The last time I remember finding them was when I was a freshman at UMASS in 1969 I sure wish they were back I think about them all the time and can almost taste them.

The Welch's Fudge and Frappe bars were the best. I used to get them at my favorite corner store in Somerville Mass. The corner stores have also vanished,

Welch's Fudge bars were sold in our high school lunch room during lunch. I bought one every time I had a nickle left over. Wish they would come back.

The Welch's fudge bar (blue & white wrapper) was very popular in Massachusetts in the 60s and early 70s. It was chocolate coated in fudge: no jelly (there was no link between the Welch Candy Company and the still existing Welch Grape people). Best candy bar ever. As I understand it, the small parent company was bought by a big consortium circa 1972 (General Mills, maybe?) and they decided to discontinue it. Pity, it was a superb candy bar.

The Frappe and Fudge bars were my favorite candy bars- please bring them back! I dream about the taste and eating them again. There has been nothing like them since!

Grew up in Mass. The Frappe bar was my absolute favorite candy of all time. I wish someone would start making it again.

The Welch Candy Company began in 1927, and was in no way connected with Welch Grape, a much older company. Welch's Fudge was a featured product. Life Magazine ran ads for this in the 1940s (one particular, a kid giving a piece to a soldier in a 1944 ad). Nabisco bought Welch Candy in 1963, and Tootsie Roll owns it today.

I do hope the Welch's company sees these comments. The Frappe bar and Fudge bar should make a comeback...Everyone likes them. Thanks
