Often times, we don’t realize the value of something until it is taken away. From that point forth, we mutter, we sign petitions, we reminisce with a saddened sigh. Such is the case with a tasty little confection known as BarNone. Introduced by Hershey’s in 1986, it managed to stay in the candy aisle for a little over a decade, making more than a few fans along the way. And then it was gone, much to the chagrin of all who once savored its chocolatey goodness.

The BarNone candy bar originally consisted of a cocoa wafer, about the same size as a Whatchamacallit bar, filled with peanuts and chocolate creme, and coated with a layer of milk chocolate. It held it’s own for a few years, then the unthinkable happened – Hershey’s decided to fix what wasn’t broken. In 1992, the product received a significant facelift in the form of new (bright yellow) packaging. More importantly, the bar was cut into two separate strips and a layer of caramel was added to its interior.

Suffice to say, fans never quite warmed to the changes, and Bar None would eventually find its way to the extinct candy graveyard, mourned by millions of former fans who still occasionally pass around petitions in the hopes of a comeback. A version is still apparently sold in Mexico, but connoisseurs insist they aren’t the same.

If you were a fan of BarNone back in the day, chime in with your thoughts in our comments section. Tell us which version you preferred and whether you would welcome a comeback of this unique candy bar that certainly didn’t lack in the chocolate department.

    I just don’t understand why Hershey’s would take the Bar None COMPLETELY off the market bc SOME ppl were complaining about FAT & CALORIES!!! What about those of us who doesn’t care about all that??? I mean for those who doesn’t care for the contents has the right to simply NOT PURCHASE! So don’t punish the rest of us!!! In my opinion, Hershey’s Bar None WAS and still IS the BEST candy bar EVERRRRRRRR!!! I am 31 yo and I still think about those candy bars til this day!!! Hershey’s…PLEASE do the WORLD/MEEEE a hugh favor and GIVE US BACK OUR BAR NONES!!!!!!! Prefereably w/CARAMEL :) …And I am soooo SERIOUS… Thank You HERSHEY’S … <3 <3 <3

    Omg…the original BarNone was my favorite candy bar. I haven’t found anything as good as that! I have always searched for them everywhere hoping oneday I’ll find them. So yes I hope they bring the original one back without the caramel.

    The last time I got a taste of Bar None was when I was 12 years old. Now I am 33 and still think its the best candy bar ever. I hope it will be sold in markets again.

    I loved these! I think the ones they sold were the newer one with the caramel. I don’t take what was in the middle I loved this candy bar. Most mornings before junior high school my dad would stop and I would get one. Then one day they were gone :(

    I remember the original Bar None Candy Bar in the brown wrapper – it was delicious and a favorite. So disappointed when they changed the recipe and wrapper. A few years ago I contacted the Hershey’s company via email asking if they still made/sold the Bar None candy bar. They did not and had no plans to bring it back. However, found a website that indicated the Bar None candy bar will be available in 2020 – I hope so!
