Back in the mid-1970’s, the Ward Candy Company, best known at the time for brands like Bit-O-Honey, Goobers and Chunky, put out a lesser known brand of taffy-like candy called Yours Chewly.
There’s not too much editorial to add to these, other than the fact that they don’t appear to have been around more than a handful of years. Based on the materials used for the packaging and their size, it would appear that these were a taffy-like treat, in the same category as brands like Tangy Taffy.
Packages sported a kid mascot off to the side stating the name of the bar in a large word balloon, which became the logo. From what I have found thus far, they were offered in three different flavors, though it’s possible there were more. Here are examples of the three I’ve found:
It’s always fun to find items like this that have nearly disappeared from the pop culture history books, and write up a chapter on them. I hope you enjoyed the look at these neat 1970’s treats.
And that’s everything I have to share today on Ward’s Yours Chewly.
See you next time!
