About Sky Bar (candy bar)

Sky Bar is an American candy bar, produced since 1938 by Necco. Each Sky Bar has four sections, each with a different filling: caramel, vanilla, peanut and fudge, all covered in milk chocolate. In 1938, the Sky Bar was first announced to the public by means of a dramatic skywriting advertising campaign. Necco was the first candy manufacturer in the United States of America to introduce a molded chocolate bar, having four distinctly different centers enrobed in chocolate. The originator of the Sky Bar was a candy maker working for Necco named Joseph Cangemi. In 1945, the blackout and curfew in Times Square, NY was lifted on VE Day, after three years of darkness. Only six display signs had their lighting equipment ready for operation and Neccos Sky Bar was one of them. The peanut section of the Sky Bar is not filled with peanut butter, but in fact a peanut-flavored caramel. The vanilla section is not quite nougat or marshmallow, but similar to the consistency of a Valomilk cup.
