Welch's chocolate covered fudge bar

Simply I knew Mr. Welch from business. His politics were a true adversity to the American Public. He sold the business as sales declined. The final owner felt so strongly about his politics that it would be in the public's interest to have his name as associated with Candy bars just disappear and that's what happened. Those of us who really loved that chocolate covered fudge bar also became a victum of a very biased individal in the process. I can still taste that candy bar even after all these past years. One of the few times in American History a man's politics distroyed a business because his name identified the product.

Welch's chocolate covered fudge bar

If you came from Brooklyn USA and were a candy lover it was hard not to crave a Welch Chocolaate Covered Fudge Bar. After WWII they were almost as important to a teenage boys life as meeting a new girl.
Mr. Welch brought an end to his famous candy by becoming involved in extreme right type of politics. He became the founder of the John Birch Society and itt didn't take very long for the general public to turn away from his great candy for that reason even though he already had sold his company. A sad ending to one wonderful candy bar that I can honestly say I miss to this very day.
