That's more like ancient than retro.

What a crazy name for a candy bar. No wonder it's discontinued. Then again, Whatchamacallit's are awesome, so it's not all in the name.

Dude, you are amazing, that's exactly what went wrong!


The crazy guys at Peter Paul Candies wanted a catchy name for a new chocolate/peanut butter candy bar. The marketing guys thought it rather funny to say, "peanut butter and NO jelly".

While I'm sure that was a real kneeslapper back in 1972, me and my friends in high school found the name sorta off putting. Just looking at the wrapper made it a hard sell to me, and I love peanut butter. I bought one as soon as it appeared at the local Seven Eleven.

Here's the thing about candy, it will sell if it tastes good, no matter what you call it, Whatchamacallit!!!

Reese's' Peanut Butter Cups taste Great. The no jelly bar tasted funny, like the peanut butter was real old, sorta rancid tasting. Bought another one the same week, same funny flavor and the texture was weird - old peanut butter with mushy rice krispies for mouth-feel, LAME!

Peter Paul renamed it but it didn't taste any better because they couldn't just reshape peanut butter cup filling and cover it with chocolate. They insisted on making it taste different. The result was awful, imho.

You can experience what Peter Paul was really after by eating a Peanut Butter TWIX. Case Closed.
