Admit it; there is something just unexplainably great about Bit-O-Honey candy bars. Is it their sticking quality to the teeth, or the tasty honey scent that reeks out of the candy bars that makes everyone love these bars so much? Bit-O-Honey is a candy treat that has been around for quite a long time now. However, do you have the slightest idea of the past of this candy?
This candy was introduced in the market in the year 1924. At that time, Schutter Johnson was a renowned and well-established company in Chicago, Illinois.
The company was the first to create a new kind of candy bar. It had tiny almond nuts all coated in a crispy and golden coat of taffy honey. During that time, Bit-O-Honey was by far the most sought after chocolate bar!
Created with egg whites, which adds an extra chewy effect to the bar, the six taffy pieces of this candy bar rose to popularity and soon became a major success in the world of candy bars. Even nowadays, you will see many people, both adults and children, who crave for the taffy experience that takes them back to a nostalgic past.
Later in 1926, the Schutter Johnson company collaborated with the NYC’s Ward Candy Company, which were the makers of the popular Chunky, Oh Henry!, and the Raisinets candy. It was at this time that the company created a chocolaty version of the candy, which was named the Bit-O-Chocolate candy bar.
However, there was just something about this version that didn’t really catch the hearts of consumers, and later its production was stopped. Other interesting flavors such as Bit-O-Peanut Butter, and Bit-O-Licorice were introduced, but likewise, they failed to entice the candy lovers. It was clear that no other flavor could compete against the Bit-O-Honey flavor!
Although other flavors didn’t sell so well, the company still added another version in the late 70’s in their range and somehow it managed to stay around. Yes, Bit-O-Honey Bumblebee is another flavor that had set the candy markets n fire.
This pack is more famous for its appealing wrapper, which has managed to stick around for about 30 years now. Just like the original Bit-O-Honey flavor, there is something about this candy that will fill your mouth with sweetness and joy.
