Today I’m going to take a look at a bar from Goetze’s, a company best-known for their Caramel Creams and Cow Tales. It’s one you probably aren’t familiar with as it only had a brief run in the mid-1980′s: It’s the Outlaw bar.
Featuring a great name and an Old-West theme which makes it a winner in my book, I first became aware of the bar when I spotted it in a 1984 candy industry trade ad. When I saw the ad, I wondered if I might ever find an actual wrapper for one. Here’s the ad:
Fortunately, I was able to track down an Outlaw wrapper earlier this year when I took on the curating of the L.M. Kallok Confectionery Collection. It’s pretty neat to finally have one of these in-person and great to be able to share it today:
The western theme is fully in-effect on this wrapper – all the way down to a pair of western scene silhouettes:
So that’s the Goetze Outlaw bar. I hope you enjoyed the look at this short-lived offering from the mid-1980′s.
If anyone remembers this one I’d love to hear what you thought about it.
See you next time!
