About This Quiz

Does the sight of a certain shade of orange leave you salivating for a chocolate and peanut butter snack? Remember when candy bars were wrapped in foil and paper, or when a Take 5 bar was clad in red, rather than black? Can you tell the difference between the red color of a Kit-Kat wrapper and the slightly different shade used to conceal a Clark bar? If so, you might have what it takes to ace this quiz on all things candy!

Hershey set the stage for candy bar wrappers way back in 1900, with the release of the iconic Hershey bar. This milk chocolate concoction was wrapped in foil and white paper for a couple of years before the company switched to that classic maroon hue you're familiar with today.

Other bars followed suit over the years, packaging candy behind layers of shiny foil or brightly-printed paper. Colors and logos were carefully chosen to draw the eye and leave candy fans drooling as they waited to take that first bite. Today, these wrappers are so familiar that many sweet treat lovers can recognize a brand from only a piece of the wrapper. Think you're one of them? Take our quiz to find out!
