History of Whatchamacallit Candy
Since its introduction in 1987, Whatchamacallit candy has become a hugely popular sweet in the United States. Made by The Hershey Company, this bar had a peanut crisp interior and a layer of caramel coated with delicious milk chocolate, giving it both crunch and chewiness. Hershey’s released the Thingamajig in the early 2000s. The “little brother” to the Whatchamacallit, the Thingamajig featured a cocoa crisp chunk and peanut butter interior coated with chocolate. Its run was short-lived – it was discontinued in 2012 – but the Whatchamacallit proved more popular. You can still buy this retro candy bar today.

Whatchamacallit Fun Facts
The Whatchamacallit’s name is a play on a social pun, poking fun at the term people create when they can’t remember the name of a product. Hershey’s produced plenty of memorable candy bars in addition to this one, including the Thingamajig, the Heath Bar, and, of course, the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar. Hershey’s modified the Whatchamacallit ingredients in 2008 when prices started increasing. By reducing the cocoa butter content of the chocolate, the company was able to retain the bar’s original taste while still delivering it at an affordable price.
