Mooning over Milkyway Midnight

Louise Z. | Jul 3, 2002 10:26 AM

I try not to eat candy too often but boy am I hooked on Milkyway Midnight bars. After about a half-hour in the freezer they are downright dreamy. I generally prefer milk chocolate, but somehow the dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla nougat combination is just perfect. I only recently discovered them (drawn, no doubt, by the romantic, mysterious name) and I had a feeling that I'd eaten them before. Well, I checked out the Milkyway website and it turns out that Milkyway Midnight was originally called Forever Yours when it was introduced in the late 1930s, was discontinued in the late 1970s and then reintroduced in the late 1980s, first as Milkyway Dark and then as Milkyway Midnight. I frankly don't remember Forever Yours from my 1960s youth and neither does my sister, who remembers everything she ever ate. She reminded me about Milkshake bars, which we used to get at the movies and which were like 3 Musketeers but bigger and better. Yum.
