When I was in Junior HIgh I was called Baby Ruth and RuthieBar due to this candy. NOt the best of memories associated with it

I love the vintageness of this old find!! Great capture! It reminds me who was the original maker of Baby Ruth before Nestle bought Curtis. Curtis used to have this huge neon rotating sign along the Interstate in Chicago where they also made Butterfinger. Thanks for the memories.

A pretty shot of the old sign that still looks good for its age.

Such a great old sign! And a great candy bar even though I have not had one in years. I do remember them as a child.

How times change. In my parents ‘day’ mother’s filled empty Coke bottles with sugar water and fed this to their little ones. I was one of them. No wonder I disliked candy as a kid! I had enough sugar water 😉
