Nestle Considers Dropping Butterfinger and Baby Ruth

A pretty popular candy bar that is in danger of becoming extinct by the end of the year. 

Nestle is doing some restructuring of their products and they are selling off Butterfinger and Baby Ruth candy bars from their portfolio.

I understand getting rid of Baby Ruth because honestly I don't think I've ever eaten one in the 38 years I've been alive. 

But how can they get rid of Butterfinger? The Butterfinger is an iconic American candy. 

Interestingly enough, I did some research on Butterfinger's popularity. It's number 5 on a list of the 10 best selling candy bars in the World. And Baby Ruth is number 7! I think that alone means that someone will step up and buy these two brands.


Ever hear of Zagnut? It's in a red and yellow package and actually has no chocolate what so ever. It's hard to find and if a store sells it, it's always on the bottom of the candy shelf. That's a candy bar I can see disappearing.
