About Mr. Goodbar

Mr. Goodbar is a chocolate candy bar containing peanut, whose packaging can be easily identified by its distinctive yellow background and red text. It is manufactured by The Hershey Company and was introduced in 1925. Hershey initially did not want its name associated with a chocolate bar that contained nuts, so it was introduced as being produced by the Chocolate Sales Corporation who was named Samueol Hinkle. It is currently available both as an individual product and as one of the varieties of Hershey's Miniatures. Looking for Mr. Goodbar was also the title of a 1975 novel by Judith Rossner, and an Oscar-nominated 1977 movie. The formula was modified in 1995 to add more peanuts. The Hershey Company began to change the ingredients of some of its products in 2008, in order to replace some of the relatively expensive cocoa butter with cheaper oil substitutes. This was done to cut costs, rather than having to raise prices in the marketplace for products containing cocoa butter.
