The Classic NECCO Sky Bar is Back!

There’s a lot of excitement at our huge candy warehouse this week. Why? Well, we’re excited over the return of one of our all-time favorite nostalgic candy bars – Sky Bar!

Sky Bar was manufactured by NECCO, the New England Confectionery Company, from 1938 up until their bankruptcy in 2018. This unfortunate event also paused the production of the famous NECCO Wafers which made their return in 2019.

Production of Sky Bar has resumed using the original recipe by the Sky Bar Confectionery Company – a small candy company based in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The company began making Sky Bars in small batches and production ramped up as word got out about the famous candy bar’s return.

If you’re not familiar with Sky Bar, it is considered a “molded chocolate bar” – something pretty revolutionary for 1938. The bar is made in a mold that features four individual “compartments.” Each compartment is first layered with rich milk chocolate then infused with fudge, vanilla, peanut, and caramel. A top layer of chocolate is added to complete the bar and make it one single piece. To eat the Sky Bar, you simply break off one of the four “compartments” and enjoy this delicious 4-in-1 candy bar!

The four flavors inside Sky Bar have evolved over the years. The four original flavors were English toffee, nougat, nut butter toffee, and fudge parfait. A slight change was made in 1955 and English toffee, honey nougat, peanut whip, and fudge parfait were the four flavors. Today’s fudge, vanilla, peanut, and caramel flavors were introduced in 2001.

While we were sad to see NECCO leave the candy scene, we’re happy that companies such as Sky Bar Confectionary Company have stepped up to bring back some of this nostalgic candy that many of us love so much.

Earlier we mentioned that NECCO Wafers are back. Those are being produced by the Spangler Candy Company and are available in the original roll of assorted flavors as well as a roll of all chocolate NECCO Wafers.

If we got your taste buds watering for some old-fashioned candy, be sure to check out our selection of nostalgic candy – you may find one of your favorites is still being manufactured today!
