Nuts for Nuts: Payday BarMonday, November 30th, 2009 by Becca Droz
Denture Danger: 8
It’s Payday! This peanut and caramel candy should be accompanied by every Friday’s payday check; it only seems appropriate. This candy bar doesn’t go beyond how it is described on the wrapper: Peanut Caramel Bar.
Not to say that simplicity is bland. At first bite, the peanuts bring on an immediate salty flavor that fades away into sweetness as you bite into the chewy caramel. The consistency of the soft caramel mixed with that of the crunchy peanuts works really well with the sweet and salty flavor.
Frank Martoccio founded the F.A. Martoccio Macaroni company, was the head of Hollywood Brands, Inc. and manufactured the Zero candy bar. He also introduced the first Payday bar in 1932. Hershey’s now manufactures the Payday.
Just because this isn’t Hershey’s most popular candy doesn’t mean that you should disregard its purchase, if you are nuts for nuts (and caramel) this one will be sure to satisfy.
