I heard on NPR news that 2013 marks the 90th year of the Butterfinger Bar. Astounding! (And it looks so young!) Technically, this may only be Butterfinger's 85th birthday. Nestle, however, has decided to count the date since the first roll-out of the candy bar, not the date of the patent five years later. And rightly so. To read more about the history of the Butterfinger and its 90th birthday, see the transcripts from NPR News here (click link to wbur.org).
