Your Questions About Company Owns Baby Ruth Candy Bar

Richard asks…

What year did they stop making the Reggie Jackson candy bar ?

This was one of my favorite candy bars and I was thinking about it earlier today. Does anyone know what year they stopped making it ?

financi4 answers:

The Reggie! Bar made it’s debut in 1978 by Wayne Candies.

“Within a few years, Reggie! Bars had completely disappeared from the candy aisles. The candy bar did make a small comeback in 1993, the year that Jackson was induced into baseball’s Hall of Fame. Wayne re-released the candy bar briefly as a tribute but, once again, it was a short-lived endeavor.”

edit: The first candy bar named after a player was “Ruth’s Home Run” bar in the 20’s. Babe Ruth was upset that the Curtiss Company was making profits on the Baby Ruth bar (supposedly named after Grover Cleveland daughter) so he markets his own candy bar. Ironically he was sued by the Curtiss Company who claim the name of his candy bar is to similar to theirs. Http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/babe-ruths-home-run-candy-bar-133901722

Other players that had candy bars named after them include Ken Griffey Jr, Cecil Fielder, Tony Gwynn, Larry Walker, Frank Thomas, Pete Rose, Wade Boggs, Jose Conseco, Cal Ripken, Chipper Jones, Albert Belle and Travis Hafner (the Pronk bar).

Chris asks…

what was the babe ruth candy bar named after?

financi4 answers:

“According to company statements, the Baby Ruth candy bar
was named for the daughter of President Grover Cleveland,
who was born while he was living in the White House.
It was not named for Babe Ruth.
(When Babe Ruth wanted to bring out a candy bar of his own,
he was prevented by a court order).
There is some suspicion that the company was not entirely
truthful about the real origin of the name.”
