- Nestlé Chunky
The Chunky candy bar was introduced in the late 1930s by New York City candy maker, Philip Silvershein. It was then made with cashews, chocolate, raisins and Brazil nuts. Supposedly, the original shape of the candy was a pyramid, but after packaging difficulties developed, the top was cut off, creating the candy's distinctive shape that remains to this day.
In the 1950s, a Chunky could be purchased for five cents, with a smaller version, the Chunky Cutie, available for two cents.
An early 1970s TV commercial for Chunky showed a young boy watching TV with his father. The boy amused viewers by claiming that Chunky was "THICKER-ER."
Other Chunky advertising slogans included "Chunky, What a Chunk of Chocolate", intoned by the nasal voice of Arnold Stang and "Open Wide for Chunky".
