Few people know that the Milky Way Bar was originally designed to taste like malted milk which was popular in 1923 when the candy bar was introduced! Malted Milk was said to have healthy benefits and was quite a novelty especially when enrobed in chocolate.
The image shown is a vintage advertisement from the 1930's showing Milky Way Candy Bars and their slogan, " wouldn't it taste good right now."
Close to 90 years later, Milky Way Candy Bars continues to be one of the best selling candy bars of all times and are sold in almost every country around the globe!
CandyFavorites.com offers the internet's largest candy selection and we would love customers to share childhood memories and thoughts about sweets from their past.

As a child I loved to go to the movies. My favorite treat was a milky way candy bar. I carried two bars when I went to the local movie house -- One to eat during the movie and one for the way home!
