Bit-O-Honey first appeared in 1924 and was made by the Schutter-Johnson Company of Chicago, Illinois, United States. Bit-O-Honey was a new kind of candy bar consisting of six pieces of candy wrapped in wax paper and then packaged in a wrapper. The candy consists of almond bits embedded in a honey-flavored taffy which makes for a long-chewing candy. It is possible to purchase the larger, candy bar version, or a bag of smaller, bite-size versions. Bit-O-Honey was acquired by the Nestlé Company in 1984, which continues production. Bit-O-Honey is similar in taste and packaging to Mary Jane made by Necco. On an interesting side note: Bit-O-Honey was voted the Most Appalling Candy at the Oldham County Fair in Oldham County, Kentucky in their 2005 Candy Competition receiving a staggering 87% of votes.
