I can't remember the 7 Up candy bar.I guess because I always ate Reese's peanut butter cups.lol

Did you ever go to the Dixie theater down town Chattanooga? My Mama would give me fifty cents for the day. 10 cents for the bus down town, 10 cents to get in the movie, 20 cents for popcorn & coke and 10 cents for the trip back home.

Now those were the DAYS. lol

Yeah I remember those candy bars. My sister and I were just talking about them and I had to google it cause some other people thought we were making it up.

I remember the 7UP candy bar. AS I recall it was so called because it had 7 candies not 8.

I certainly remember the 7-up candy bar! Wish it was still made. I especially remember the jelly-like section. Guess by remembering that I'm dating myself.

Trudeau candy company in St. Paul MN used to make the 7-up bar and they were bought out by Pearsons candy company which still exists. They are remaking some of the old favorites from our past so I sent them an e-mail inquiring if they are going to bring back the 7-up bar. I will forward there response when I get it.

LOCALS WITH SWEET TEETH often pine for Minnesota's great lost candy, a chocolate bar with seven compartments, each with a different filling: Cherry, coconut, caramel, fudge, jelly, maple, and Brazil nut. This little flavor miracle was called the Seven Up Bar, and was originally manufactured by Trudeau Candy Company of Saint Paul. In 1951, this company was acquired by another great Minnesota candy company, Pearson's, who had been manufacturing salty confections since 1909, including the Nut Goodie Bar and something that for years Pearson's called the Choo Choo Bar -- nowadays known to us as the Salted Nut Roll.

Finally! Someone who remembers the 7UP candy bar.

It was my favorite candy memory. The only place you could get one was Joe's bowling alley in Sycamore IL.in the 50's. One of the five siblings were treated once every couple of months to accompany my parents to their bowling night where we would be treated to a coke and a candy bar....this was a very special treat.

Finally, someone remembers the 7 up bar! When I was a boy living in Laguna Beach Ca., in the mid 70's, I never missed an opportunity to run to the liquor store down the street and buy one of those bars.

As kids we spent much time behind the counter in Dad's grocery store studying the candy racks. The Pearson 7-UP bar was an all time favorite. It came in both light and dark chocolate. It was like a box of chocolates in a bar. A few years back I tried to buy the rights to bring this bar back into production. Pearson dosen't want to do it and apparently doesn't want anyone else to either, they turned me down flat. Thought you might like to know.

Posted by: JOANN at April 18, 2006 04:26 PM

great candy bar,was my all time favorite..my grandma & grandpa use to visit the local tavern in wisconsin a few nights a week and purchase a few candy bars each time, and put them in a bag when she got home,then on sundays when the grand children came to visit she would bring this bag out with a collection of different candy bars,and the 7 up bars always went first..great memories,this was around 1963-1968...

I remember the 7-Up candy bar. I told my 9 yr old daughter about them. I actually showed her on the internet that there really was such a candy bar. I wish that they still made those. I know that kids would enjoy those as much as we did as kids. It's too bad that things have to change so much.

Posted by: Teresa at May 21, 2006 10:14 PM

Yes!!!! I remmeber the 7-Up bar. Used to buy it when I went to the movies. I liked the jelly and the brazil nut.

Posted by: R. Young at June 7, 2006 06:13 PM

Yes, we remember the Seven Up Candy Bar. As kids
we would go to the show on friday nights. There
was a candy store next to the show called Dean's
where we would buy our favorite candy, The Seven Up. Judy's favorite, all of it!!! Barbara's, the
Orange jelly and the Brazil nut. This was in Collinsville, Il in the 50's.

I remember the 7 Up bar from my childhood as well. My mother used to make salted nut rolls at the plant in St. Paul but I didn't discover 7 Up until we moved to Duluth. I didn't even hear mention of them on a food channel candy special. How could they miss this candy bar?

Posted by: Dan at July 26, 2006 03:13 PM

Hi. When our family first came to Texas after our dad retired from the Army, my oldest brother would buy this candy bar from our local Kroger store or from the Base Exchange at Bergstrom AFB. This was in the early 1970's -haven't seen it anywhere since. Like everyone else, I wish it would come back!

Posted by: td at August 10, 2006 01:26 PM

Wow!! Iam not crazy,other people miss them too. I got them at Bartells in downtown Seattle. I forgot about the dark and light chocolate. I really want one.

Posted by: Robert Southard at August 26, 2006 05:07 PM

I remember the 7-up bar, I think it was a dime when oters were only a nickel. I also remember Cherry-A-Let bars. Remember the Big 5 and Big 10 tablets with the Indian chief on the front which were 5 cents and 10 cents? With my allowance of a dollar I could buy 20 candy bars if I didn't have to buy tablets and school stuff. Those were the days. I thought I got a pretty small allowance but looking back it was a lot.

Can any one tell me when the Trudeau Company started making the seven up candy bar and when the sky bar started and by what company. I would appriciate any information you can give me.
Thanks Joyce

Posted by: Joyce at December 6, 2006 12:09 PM

I loved the 7Up Bar! I sure do wish they would bring it back. We should start a letter writing campain to Trudeau Company! No way is Sky Bar like 7Up don't get me wrong Sky Bar is ok but it's not a 7Up! Does anyone have a graphic of the 7Up bar not just the wrapper but an ad with an unwrapped bar with insides showing. Yum! Wish I had one now!

Posted by: Sandi at December 10, 2006 01:50 AM

The 7Up bar was my favorite candy bar as a boy in the 60s. I used to buy one after school from the junior high school school store in Eugene, Oregon. Wonder why the Pearson Candy Company seems to be so set on not producing it again or letting someone else do so. Sure would be nice to take one apart piece by piece again - a delectable way to stretch out an after school snack!

Posted by: at February 18, 2007 04:48 PM

I wish they would bring back the 7-up bars! and the Marathon bars... anyone remember those- carmal and chocolate. I remember parts of the comercial- an old buck skiner and a bear? Right? Wow the good days! I watch the Food channel too and was wanting them to bring both of those up.... Those who have never heard of the 7 up bar are missing out- or maybe lucky because they are not looking for them! lol

Does anyone remember the candy bar that came out in tandem with the Twix bar about 1979. Twix survived; the other didn't.

Posted by: Munner at March 18, 2007 11:07 PM

I sure remember the 7up bar. We had them out here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I would save my little change and would even look for pennies so I could get one every week.
And how about the 3cent Star Bars?

Posted by: Marie at March 27, 2007 12:22 AM

I seem to remember the 7up bar the cherry jelly part it's what i remember about it.It was coverd in a deep thick chocolate.Was the bar the none bar.Do anyone remember the lunch bar two for 5 cents and the hollywood bar?

Posted by: mary at June 17, 2007 06:45 PM

Was the bar that came a long when the twix came out the bar none or the zero bar?

Posted by: mary at June 17, 2007 06:52 PM

I remember the 7 up candy bar and I also loved the jelly part the best :)
I always bought it from the 7-11 down the street from my house in Austin, Texas. I would usually buy it and a Mr. Cola. They also had these little containers of peanuts tha would have a coin init wrapped in wax paper. There were supposedly coins from a penny to a quarter.

Posted by: Delta Null at July 25, 2007 10:36 PM

My husband used to take a seven-up bar in his lunch bucket. He says there never was a candy to compare and we would definitely buy plenty of them if only they would start making them again. The Pearson Candy Company's toll-free # is 800-328-6507. Maybe if enough of us seven-up lovers called them, they would bring them back

Posted by: Frazier at September 2, 2007 06:28 PM

I also wish the Seven-Up bar would return. The flavor and texture variations were terrific, and the dark chocolate was really good as I recall. The stores at which I bought them are all long gone.

Posted by: gcarl at September 6, 2007 05:01 AM

I remember the 7-up candybar for sure. My Dad would always bring us one home every night.
I was just watching unwrap and they were showing different candy bars. It made me remember the 7-up candy bar.
Does bring back fond memories.

Jean Ray

I remember getting the 7up candy bar at a local sunoco station here in southern KY. When my mom would stop to fill up I would try to get one. They were so great!!! I definitely would be buying them again. I remember it being so wonderful having a candy bar with 7 different fillings. I wish they would bring this candy bar back or at least make them for special times of the year.

Posted by: Doug at September 16, 2007 01:18 AM

According to http://www.neatorama.com/2007/05/14/10-candy-bars-youll-never-eat/ , the 7-up company bought out the candy bar just to use the name. So don't blame Pearson's.
