For those that doubt my claims here is the proof.

One hundred grand and it cost me only $1.

Will you trade ten of those for a slice of millionaire shortbread?

Pah! typical WOV response. Adding conditions: Changing the terms of the deal. If you want to see that I can afford millionaires shortbread, you have to fly over here, put your 10 x hundred grand in escrow. $:o)

They taste better than hundred grands anyway

I recently had a mini hundred grand bar and it seemed very different from the $100,000 Bars of my childhood. It reminded me of some other candy bar that I can't quite place.
Does anyone remember the M&M seven layer bars? They were my favorite but didn't last very long.

I also thought something changed (quality- or taste-wise) when the "$100,000 Bar" became the "100 Grand Bar." Although, I haven't had either one in ages.

But with all this talk, I kinda want one now!

I thought you might be talking about the Whatchamacallit, but they are made by Hershey, plus I think they were 5-layers, not 7. So, to answer your question, I guess I don't remember them.

You'd be surprised (at least I was) how many candy bars I thought were long gone are still actually being made. Some candy shops (usually in touristy locations) have stuff I haven't seen since I was a kid.

I donít consider someone that prefers milk to dark chocolate a chocolate elitist.

I never purchased chocolate to be elitist. I just buy what my taste buds say is scrumdiddlyumptious

I don't even want to know what you think of chocolate Whoppers (a chocolate even I recognize as low on the totem pole)
