Few people know that the Milky Way Bar was originally designed to taste like malted milk, an ingredient that 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 depicting Milky Way Candy Bars and their slogan, " wouldn't it taste good right now."
Almost 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!
Each bar weighs 1.84 ounce -- assuming that you haven't already taken a bite -- and each box contains 36 pieces.
