#12  "C-Rations had a piece of candy in them referred to as a "John Wayne bar"."

Was that the same as the Hitler's secret weapon cocoa bar? And as for pogey bait, I thought it was all gedunk now.

#11  Years ago, C-Rations had a piece of candy in them referred to as a "John Wayne bar". You have to be as tough as John Wayne to bite into it. Canned 'beans and weenies' were called beens and something else also.... but I forget :-)

John Wayne bar? Perhaps you were thinking of a Big Hunk, or could it be:

Baby Ruth Bar
Choo Choo Bar
Creme Egg Twisted
Curly Wurly
Fun Dip
Good & Plenty
Milky Way Bar
Mr. Goodbar
Nut Goodie
Oh Henry
Push Pops Twisted
Salted Nut Roll
Star Bar
Sugar Mama
Wonka Xploder

And hopefully not a ZERO bar

Too much Pogey Bait has been known to turn the Gams into Cottage Cheese barrels.

#6  I'd gladly give her my last John Wayne bar. Have you been away too long, or are Army standards just that much lower GB. :-)
