Thread: Reggie Bars

  1. #26
    The one on the eBay listing that Zito75 had mentioned was what I remember having. Got 'em from the dollar store for 3 for a buck around '94 or '95. They were almost like the chocolate pecan caramels that Turtles currently makes, except of a lesser quality.

    Wow...I didn't know the Oh Henry had a history before Aaron, most interesting.

    I'd smash the Hawk Harrelson bar with a hammer before it could say anything...well, maybe it could call me "Wimpy" before the first blow.

    Where as the Sammy Sosa bars come with a cork filling...

    The Barry Bonds bars grow about 25% each year...

    And the Rich Harden bar comes wrapped in bandaids...
    WAR? Prove it!

    Prince Fielder bar says it's vegetarian friendly but still creamy fattening and delicious. Hmmmm

    Was the Reggie bar the bar that stirred the drink?

    Looking at Zito's link to the vintage Reggie bar, that would not be safe at all. I wouldn't eat that even on a dare.

    If that were a Jamie Moyer bar on eBay, it would still taste pretty good despite its age.
    The Mickey Mantle bar was 80 proof.
    The Cecil Fielder bar is 2500 calories.
    The Dave Hollins bar is sugar free.
    The Dick Allen bar wrapper is empty 20% of the time.
    The Don Mossi bar looks like a cow pie but doesn't taste too bad.
    The Lenny Dykstra bar has a $25,000 deposit that you'll never actually get back.

    That's right, it was Hunter. Somehow I got it in my head that it was Nettles, probably because of his rep as a needler.

    I loved them, even though I'm a Mets fan. My mom used to buy em, and stash em. When we'd doing something good we'd be rewarded with one of them. That was the early 80's. I think they stopped making them not soon after.

    I was a kid back then so pretty much any chocolate candy was good. I did like the Reggie bar, bought it often.

    The same company put out a Wade Boggs candy bar at the same time. They were the same thing with a different wrapper. I think Boggs was the 'Wade Boggs .352 Bar' or something like that (noting his career avg at the time - not really sure if it was .352.) You're right. They weren't very good. Wasn't really sure if it was a chocolate bar or merely chocolate-flavored wax.

    Memory tells me that there was a product called Carnation Breakfast Sticks when I was a kid back in the '70s...they were totally weird and insanely good, I remember chocolate ones that were almost as chewy as a Tootsie Roll but more like a compressed cake. They kinda sorta tasted like a solid version of Yoohoo. If I had a couple for breakfast, some of them would still be stuck on my teeth tasting good at lunchtime. Poking around on the web suggests that they were really called Carnation Space Sticks, but that doesn't sound right to me at all.
    When I got a little older, I was trying to add fiber to my diet but didn't like the taste of Fiber One and All Bran...so I would dump a packet of Carnation Instant Breakfast into the bowl. What a carb fest that must have been...this was my favorite dinner when I would come home late from the gym after a long day at work. My wife to be would just stare at me and say I had the most bizarre eating habits in the world.
