Good News

"Celebrate!" Christopher's Good News candy bar declares on the label. There isn't much traceable history behind this peanut, caramel, rice, and chocolate confection, but we can understand why it's been around for over half a century; it offers a pleasant contrast between soft and chewy, and caramel-y, malty, and peanut-y. Purportedly, the bars were popular as a gift people would hand out following a baby's birth.
