World's Finest Chocolate W.F. Crisp
Often available from those wanting to fundraise, the taste hasn't changed and still holds up to this day. Difference between the chocolate bars from the early years to today's bars from W.F. is they've lowered the sugar content.
Not sure if this is/was common throughout the country, but when I young, these chocolate bars were everywhere. I mean, everywhere. It was like Girl Scout Cookies, but because my elementary school ventured into selling these bars for fundraising, it was a challenge to sell even one or two.
The first chocolate bars were wrapped in foil and the labels were wrapped in separate paper; These modern bars are packaged in a plastic-like silver wrapper. As far as I remember, there are two different bars: almond chocolate bars, and these W.F. Crisps. The old-school designs featured red-colored wrapper for the crisps, and blue-colored wrappers for the almond bars.
Looks like the price to sell these still remain the same—$1.00 a piece. In my elementary school days, we sold it at the same price, but also, $1.00 felt like $50 to me (as a kid, anything above 50¢ is expensive to me, even though my parents had a very steady income). Saying that means that buying these for myself was insurmountable because the price was too high for me that time. Nowadays, I'm still surprised these are still around which tells me the company is doing well. Nice going, World's Finest Chocolate.
The taste? It hasn't changed and that's quite good. However, the sugar content has decreased making it less guilty. Also, compared to the bars I ate and sold in the mid-nineties, the bars are thinner than they were back then (the bars used to be so thick, that eating one piece was enough). The bars are pre-cut into four pieces allowing you to nip off a bite without strangling to break the bar, in the case the bar is cold. Being this bar is the crispy one, they also lessened the crispy rice. That may disappoint some people but it should be friendly on your teeth. Overall, it's a simple chocolate bar.
I'll never forget all the leftover chocolate bars that my sister and I failed to sell, so you know what we did? Ate all the leftovers. Yeah, we don't believe in wasted food, even back then, so it had to be eaten right?
Whether your school sold these, or you currently have kids that sell these for a fundraiser, it's a humble chocolate bar that should bridge your meals at specific times of the day. It's not bad, and makes a great snack to help out someone raising money for their school or a good cause.
- A brand with a humble taste. Chocolate is not too sweet and has controlled its sweetness for many years.
