BUTTERFINGER CANDY BAR

The Butterfinger was invented in 1923 by Otto Schnering owner of Curtiss Candy Company.  It consists of an orange peanut butter flavored filling covered with chocolate.

When Standard Brands Company, owner of Curtiss Candy Company, was acquired by Nabisco in 1981, they realized they had somehow lost the original recipes for the Baby Ruth and Butterfinger candy bars. No one at the old Curtiss factory remembered how to make the candy bars, and Nabisco had to develop new recipes that customers would accept.
