Nestlé Chunky is a candy bar known for its trapezoidal shape. Chunky consists of milk chocolate, California raisins and roasted peanuts.
The Chunky candy bar was introduced in the late 1930s by New York City candy maker, Philip Silvershein. Supposedly, the original shape of the candy was a pyramid but after packaging difficulties developed, the top was cut off, creating the candy's distinctive shape that remains to this day.
Silvershein, a friend of William Wrigley Jr., originally had his Chunky bars distributed by the Wrigley Gum Company. It was acquired by Nestlé in 1984.
