    'I Want A Clark Bar'

    If you grew up in the 1950s, a TV ad for this candy bar featured a rendering of a camel saying 'I Want A Clark Bar.' I loved these but lost interest & gave away the few I had left last Halloween. Today I started to track down the fate of this treat.

    The Clark Bar went through a number of corporate transitions & is not currently available. But today I got in contact with the current owner of the name, formula & equipment for making them: Boyer Candy in Pittsburgh & Altoona, PA. I spoke with a representative & was told that they plan to launch this candy within a month.

    Their retail outlet phone: Boyer Candy Company

    I love 'Baby Ruth' but I have this childhood craving for Clark Bars. Right now their only manufacturing hangup is in the packaging.

    See Boyer Candy

    Butterfingers are similar to a Clark Bar. As I remember, I think they are tastier than a Clark Bar.

    My favorite candy bar though is a Milky way!

    Not that unusual. A lot of even current brands get made by different companies in different places under licenses. Kit Kat is one of them.
