imageBit-O-Honey is one of those candies that I’m always surprised (and pleased) to see that they still make. And why wouldn’t they? There’s nothing else like it out there.

Bit-O-Honey was introduced in 1924 by a company called Schutter-Johnson Company in Chicago, Ill. Schutter and Johnson later split (Johnson went on to invent the PowerHouse bar which became a Peter Paul product, a nougat, peanuts and caramel product covered with chocolate, something I’ll have to write about further later).

Schutter’s made a nice variety of chewy goods including the Bit-O-Choc and the Bit-O-Coconut and a chocolate bar called Old Nick that featured milk chocolate over fudge and nuts.

In the 1960s Schutter’s sold out to the Chunky folks who discontinued the Old Nick citing that it competed with their much more popular Oh Henry! Then in 1984 Nestle bought Chunky and the now orphaned Bit-O-Honey. (There may have been some intermediate companies in there for a while too, candy history is mighty confusing!)

The smiling bee on the wrapper didn’t appear until the late seventies and later got arms as he does today.

Nestle has kept the bar largely the same as when it was first introduced. They even still make the six segment bar with the wax wrapper dividers. This is an interesting way to sell the candy and solves one of the enduring problems for taffy bars ... how do you eat it? Many taffy bars are easy to smack on the corner of the table and break into pieces (but who knows how those pieces will be sized?). The assortment of bars from Annabelle’s and items like Laffy Taffy suffer from this (though Laffy Taffy also makes the ropes, which I think are probably the best format for a large quantity of taffy).


The Bit-O-Honey segments break apart pretty easily, though I always end up with a little smidge of paper on the back side of each piece where the candy has folded over the waxed paper. (It’s not the end of the world if it ends up in your mouth though ... not like the foil on a Hershey’s Kiss if you have fillings.)

As long as the candy is fresh and soft, it’s a pleasant and surprisingly long-lasting chew. There are notes of honey as you would expect, as well as a smooth and creamy flavor of almonds. The chew is consistent to the very end, instead of descending into some grainy mess as many caramels do. There’s a little egg white in there, which is part of what give it the smooth chew (a little different timing on the cooking and it could be nougat).

Bit-O-Honey are also sold individually wrapped, but I’ve never liked those as much (they’re a little boxier in shape). They tend to be firmer (or rock hard). There’s something about the bar that I’ve always loved.

I don’t buy them very often, for fear of pulling out fillings (though I’ve never actually lost a filling on candy ... I lost a filling once on scrambled eggs and cracked a tooth on a rock in a bean salad once). It was nice to see them on shelves again at the 99 Cent Only Store and even better to find the product virtually unchanged.

  1. This is one of my absolute favorite candies.  This, and those peanut butter candies in the orange and black wrappers are two candies I love that nobody else likes.

  2. These are my obsession!  Possibly the best movie candy ever.  A year or so ago, I was unable to find them at the usual places & thought they had gone the way of Bonomo Turkish Taffy.  Horrors!  I paid a huge price for them at a Linens N Things in desperation.  Later, I found out they are always at your local Cracker Barrel gift shop.  They have turned up again in drug & grocery stores in my area.  Thank heaven!

  3. I cannot believe you have a post about this candy—just last week I went on a hunt for a Bit O Honey bar. They’re almost impossible to find in my area! Supposedly they carried them at a local Albertsons, but the manager couldn’t find them for me, and I just happened in to a McLendon’s hardware that was selling the bags with the little individual ones, so I snatched one up.

    This is also one of my very favorite candies and I don’t understand why it’s not more popular. It’s even lower in fat than most candy bars. I don’t eat much candy (just read about it wink) so I was shocked to see it was missing from so many candy aisles.

  4. I adore Bit-O-Honey. I always forget about them, but they have been a favorite for years. They aren’t too bad calorie-wise, either. And can last a few minutes, unlike chocolate treats. Mmm. Wonder what they’d taste like with a chocolate coating….

    Comment by Kate on 8/14/07 at 10:54 am #
  5. Gosh, i havnt had one of these for a long time, guess now i HAVE to go and find one lol.

  8. LOVE this! And to think I’ve only discovered it recently!

    Comment by Sera on 8/15/07 at 6:13 pm #
  9. I agree about the individually wrapped pieces not being up to the traditional segmented candy. But I’d give these peanut butter beauties a Yummy at least. And hey, if you’re going to destroy your teeth, what better way to do it?

    K - I’m actually a bigger fan of the Peanut Butter Kisses (see the reaction those go here).

    Anne - I too noticed that they disappeared, and then suddenly were everywhere.

    Carol - the other place I see them is in those prepack assortment of individually wrapped Bit-O-Honeys “2 for 99” peg bags at the drug stores. Not always fresh though.

    Kate - I’d love them in little bits dipped in chocolate, of course I thought that about Sugar Babies and it didn’t turn out as well as I’d thought.

    Patti & Liz - I wonder if the candy companies have some sort of “candy blog review metric” that tracks these sort of upticks in interest in candy out of the blue.

    bebe - that’s a tough one. I think regular Taffy is probably the closest to it.

    Sera - I shouldn’t be surprised, there are quite a few bars that I’ve never tried (I’ll have to put together a list).

    Jeanna Olson - that’s the thing, it’s only a fear ... but probably a well-grounded one.

  11. I love Bit-O-Honey and am fortunate that they are always available here. Even better, they are often on sale for 33 cents. I prefer the bars to the nuggets. I recently shared my candy with a co-worker who had never eaten one! She really likes Bit-O-Honey now too. I’m going to eat a bar now. Yummy.

  12. I have not had one of these since probably 1989.  I can’t say that I’ve missed them, but my tastes have changed a lot since then.  I might have to give them a shot.

  13. I recently had a bit o honey and wow was it good and since I have not been able to find a single bar, where do we purchase them at??

  14. I am eating bit-o-honey as I type this.  I recently quit smoking and wanted something to replace as the urges hit.  I have now been eating bit o honeys since then (7/15/07).  I’ve been lucky to find a family dollar store that carries the 4.8 oz bags of them and I get them by the case now.  If I get the urge for a cigarette (especially when I drink my coffee) I just reach for a bit o honey.

  15. I am eating bit-o-honey right now and it is great!!  I love it, but it’s hard to find around here.  I wish I could make it I would stay in the kitchen just so I could have it 24-7!!!!  I love it I could eat all day everyday.
    IT’S JUST SO GOOD…....................

  16. I LOVE Bit O’ Honey candy.  It is one of my two favs.  I like the bars best, and like them “fresh”.  The stale ones (which the old gas stations seem to carry most), are tough to get into, but eventually soften into something edible.  But you better be willing to put the time into working it! LOL.. and you better have strong jaw muscles.  But a Bit O’ Honey is so worth it.  Fresh or stale. 

    And I wanted to commend you on your stand AGAINST artificial sweetener.  Good for you!  It is getting more and more difficult to find certain foods WITHOUT artificial sweetner.  At one grocery store here, they have done away with all but TWO flavors of store-brand yogurt with actual sugar (well.. corn syrup.. but that is another rant).  If you want anyting else, it’s going to have Nutrasweet or Splenda in it. YUCK!!!

  17. just craving for bit o’ honey,can someone direct me a place within 100 miles radius from where I live to get my hands on these?

  18. Apparently ‘bit’ means both bee and honey in Egyptian, or something… see its occultic roots here: http://www.geocities.com/laverite_99/Bees.html

  19. I have been looking for bit o honey and can’t find them still! Holloween just isn’t the same without them. Will have to scout around for them again.

    Comment by hecate754 on 12/29/07 at 3:16 pm #
  20. I tried this for the first time when I saw it in a candy shop. I’m 21, so a lot of the candies I find and like - such as Good & Plenty, Lemonheads, etc - are ones I’ve never had before. And I loved this. The almonds were surprisingly strong, sort of toasted notes, and like you said, the taffy is creamy. I wish I could find it cheaper. I’ve got to say…since I started reading this blog, my candy interest has exploded. I’m even starting to garner impressed looks from candy shop employees, when I choose “retro” candy instead of newfangled stuff.

  21. Bit O Honey is the greatest candy ever! The name fits it puuurrrfect because every bite has honey poured inside! Yum!

    Comment by Lauren on 1/16/08 at 10:57 am #
  22. I remember when Bit O’ Honey was made by the Ward Candy Company, which was before Nestle, but after the others.  I remember that because my maiden name was Ward, and I always dreamed of having a candy company, kind of like Willy Wonka or something. smile

    Comment by J on 4/11/08 at 10:32 am #
  23. I am so in love with Bit-O-Honey and have fond memories of eating them as a child. I found them being sold individually at a mall candy store. Now I am feeling a bit like an addict. I just had to have some. A coworker told me they were being sold at a deli a block from my office. I bought nearly a case of the bars. Other patrons of the deli, who were buying sandwhiches and chips for lunch, looked at me like I was crazy. But I walked out happily with my head held high. I nearly ran back to me desk. Who thought a candy bar could make me so happy on a Monday???

    Comment by Cheryl on 8/18/08 at 8:20 am #
  24. I agree—these are probably my favorite non-chocolate candy, but they’re so hard to find. I’ve only discovered them recently at a discount store—a decently sized bag for $1.99. But I’ve only found them once more since then. Mary Janes are comparable, but not nearly as good.

    Comment by Lisa on 12/06/08 at 11:24 am #
  25. Lisa…
    My husband gets them for me at our local “Family Dollar” store for 1.00 a bag.  He buys them by the case for me. 
    I recently quit smoking and I replace the cigarette with a bit o honey.  Now I have a different addiction….lol

    Good luck in finding them.

    Comment by Terry on 12/07/08 at 8:28 am #
  26. Hi Terry,

    I’m a moron…. Here I am thinking how we don’t have any Family Dollar here,and the place I used to find them is going out of business. Somehow I completely overlooked Economy Candy, which is right down the block from me! I just never go in there, b/c my experience with the place is that it’s usually overcrowded with tourists. But they have Bit-o-honey bars for $.75 and the individually wrapped pieces for $1.99/lb!! They’re cheap and right on my doorstep and I never noticed…<slaps forehead>

    Comment by Lisa on 12/09/08 at 5:06 am #
  27. Aloha Lisa!  I ordered a 10 pound bag of bit o honey candies for a family Christmas gift and paid $3.79 a pound, but thanks to Lisa’s top I will check out other venders charging half that.

    Really appreciate the tip.

  28. Not able to find Bit a Honey, whats the best place to order from?

    Comment by Renee on 1/22/09 at 6:33 am #
  29. Do a search on internet for Bit-O-Honey and you’ll find places that sell them.  Also on their package (as I’m eating out of now), says their distributor is nestleusa.com 1-800-258-6728

    Comment by Terry on 1/22/09 at 6:40 am #
  30. Terry,

    Thank you for the advice, I love Bit-O-Honey.

    Comment by Renee on 1/22/09 at 9:03 am #
  31. I absoultely love Bit-O-Honey. I can not find them anywhere. I will try the Family Dollar store that was suggested earlier. Our hospital gift shop sells them in bite size portions. I am looking for a larger quanity to share.

    Comment by Julie on 3/18/09 at 7:49 am #
  32. They are all over NYC.., not sure why.., I love them to death though!!!

    Comment by exibanker on 4/23/09 at 8:32 am #
  33. I love these too and I haven’t seen the candy bar for AGES, but I have found the individually wrapped pieces at JoAnns ETC near their cash registers. They seem to be fresh too. So I pick up a bag or two whenever I’m buying craft supplies and then my son eats them - none left for me ;-( - unless I hide them.
    I suppose if we all buy them for our children and toss them to kids during 4th of July and Homecoming parades maybe we can keep the demand high enough they’ll never disappear.

    Comment by Rita on 5/01/09 at 10:12 am #
  34. We bought two pounds of Bit o Honey for a group of friends.  We sat around eating and popping these little nuggets…we are addicted to them.  But finally we ALL said, “Where are the almonds?!  There are no nuts in them anymore!!!”

    We were extremely disappointed.  We believe after eating 2 pounds of the candy, that the company is trying to save money and have stopped putting in the right amount of almonds to them.

    I guess we will move onto something else.  They have lost our business.

    Comment by Chris Snograss on 8/23/09 at 5:10 am #
  35. I agree with Chris after purchasing a package of individual Bit-O-Honeys that they aren’t what they used to be, and that’s only about two years ago for me.  They are softer and darker in color and had no discernable almonds at all.  Back to Mary Janes at Walgreens.

    Comment by Jeanne Irelan on 8/29/09 at 9:32 am #
  36. My husband got me addicted to these.  Says they are a good way to curb your appetite!  (Forgot about that excuse.)  Anyhow, I have a tip.  God forbid you are in your car & get hungry-we put them in the car-lest we starve!  Well…they MELT on a sunny day to the perfect consistancy-not too gooey-just soft enough to be PERFECT!  Of course, you can eat them faster that way. I’ve become quite used to popping them in my mouth after swimming!  umm..

  38. I can’t find it at any of our grocery stores, however our Dollar Tree stores carry it regularly in the individually wrapped size on the peg boards of bagged candy.  Good hunting!

    Comment by Hillary on 10/11/09 at 5:37 am #
  39. Like everyone else here has said, I love Bit-O-Honey’s. It’s funny but my mother was watching the television and because of Halloween, they had some candy commercial on. She then turns to me and says one of her favorite candies were the Bit-O-Honey’s, but it’s too bad that they don’t make them anymore. I said, “I think they still make them but it’s been a long time since I had one. I’ll have to check around.” Well, doing a quick Google, I found this page and now, I have to go to my local dollar store tomorrow and see if I can grab a few bags! They are delicious!! Thanks for the memories!

  40. Glad to see so many others like Bit- o- Honey. I don’t know anyone else personally who does but its a favorite of mine.

    The thing I wonder about in terms of change in the candy is the first ingredient is now high fructose corn syrup. At some point this must not have been so.

    Comment by Jess on 11/04/09 at 11:23 pm #
  41. I got addicted to Bit-O-Honey on a recent trip to the U.S. Found them at the Cracker Barrel for $1.50 per bag (individuals). Does anyone know if these are available in Canada? The bars sound good!

    Comment by Geri on 12/14/09 at 5:46 pm #
  42. Does anyone remember the Bit-O-Honey commercial with the psycadelic animation and the jingle"six chewy pieces, are six times the fun. six time the flavor in a Bit-O-Honey barrrrrrrrrr”? I can’t find that commercial in the archives.

  43. I have looked several places in Indianapolis, In. for Bit O Honey….can you help?????

    Comment by Myna on 2/09/10 at 5:36 am #
  44. It seems to me that Bit O Honey was made with Hickory nuts when I was a kid. (1940-1950)  The almonds make Bit O Honey taste different.


    Comment by Phil on 2/10/10 at 8:20 am #
  45. These are easily my husband’s favorite candy (though he might argue he likes Twizzlers better) He doesn’t eat them as often as he’d like both from finding a decent supply of soft, fresh bars and because no one needs that much sugar. If I’m lucky, he will share a piece or two with me

    Comment by Andee D on 2/23/10 at 6:32 am #
  46. Way back, when I was in labor with my first child, I had the hugest craving for a Bit-O Honey bar. I couldn’t eat anything but ice chips at that time so the next day after my child was born, my very thoughtful husband brought me a Bit-O- Honey! What joy!! I’ve never forgotten that.

  50. What about Bit of Peanut Butter -these were around in the 70’s as well and I loved them but can’t find any reference to them. I know they are not made but I can’t find an acknowledgment it even existed, Bit of Chocolate, Coconut (eh) and Bit of Licorice yes can find those confirmations but no Bit of Peanut Butter-the very best of them -Honey if great but man PB was the bomb

  52. I love Bit O Honey candy.  My little silver poodle Hobie also loves them.  Hobie is a very fussy eater and will turn his little nose up at everything except Bit O Honey.  He will even get fistie if he thinks there is competition for his pieces 0f Bit O Honey.  Like us human types our animal friends will surprise us with their little preferences.

  54. Glad I found this site!  I absolutely love Bit-O-Honey.  I am eating them now as I type this, as I do ever night!  A few months ago I found a midsized candy distributor for upstate NY that was going out of business.  I was able to take a small loan out and score 17,500LBS of Bit-O-Honey bars.  It is hard to store that much candy in a residential home let alone a 1 bedroom apartment in BX as pests and moisture become serious issues but I am eating them up pretty regularly.  Its great to see i’m not the only other ‘nutjob’ about these mouth watering candies!!

    Comment by Dennis on 11/08/10 at 5:55 pm #
  55. Oh my..i just finishe eating a piece og Bit-O-Honey…mmm mmm Yummy. love em, but our Dollar General doesn’t have the bars(4.2oz bag)...i may have to look in Family Dollar or Dollar Store. was nice to read this blog about a candy i enjoy smile
    it was good to see people who enjoy the same interest…

    Comment by C. A on 2/17/11 at 11:34 am #
  56. Okay so I found some of these at a dollar store when I was searching for vanilla tootsie rolls. I hadn’t tasted them since the 80’s. They taste different now.. When I was a kid they had pieces of nuts in them; they had a different consistency. They’re still good today but I can see they changed the recipe up a ‘bit’. When I looked on the back it said less than 2% of honey nuts egg whites and what not-sad.

Suggest they get one, too, by sending in two OLD NICK or BIT-O-Honey wrappers and 25c to OLD NICK, Box “L” Plaza Station, St. Louis1, Mo. Any idea what it is worth??

    Bit o honey goes a long long way, I you have one head it lasts all day.?

    Comment by BILL SWEET on 10/30/11 at 4:34 pm #
  60. OK Here is the ONLY WAY to eat bit o honeys (in my opinion). Take them out of the wrapper about 10- 12 pcs. Put them in a bowl and microwave for ONLY 7 secs! Flip them over and do another 7 secs! Done! If everyone would try this just once, bit o honey sales would dbl over night! Be really carefull not to leave too long in microwave or they will get too hot to eat. Dont even try or you will burn your mouth! Enjoy!

    Comment by Bill on 3/25/12 at 2:45 pm #
  61. Love Bit O Honeys!  I don’t eat chocolate (allergy) and have always appreciated being able to have awesome candy choices like BOH, Salted Nut Rolls and Mary Janes! 

    I found this website while I was looking for a recipe to make BOH.  And I am eager to make them with almonds and the butter nuts! 

    Love the bars and individual pieces especially when I drink hot coffee or tea.  BOH-they make me happy!

  63. Brian Star, there is a story in my family as well that my great-grandfather invented Bit-o-Honey as well and then sold the recipe for way too little money. Not sure of the exact time frame since everyone who might have known has passes on. I do know it would have been in the Boston, MA area around the turn of the 20th century.

  64. Bit-o-honey fans, go to your farm stores. Fleet farm just had 16 oz bags 3.29 Menards has them, Bomgaars has them .MURDOCH’S in Montana, Wyoming Nebraska Colorado ask your farm friends where the farm store is

    Comment by Leon Behrends on 11/05/13 at 7:02 pm #
  65. Here is the good news! Go to target and look on the end caps at the check out lanes, also in their candy section. Still trying to find out the original recipe. Lots of jocks (swimmers) swear by these things.

    Comment by Eric on 2/15/14 at 2:16 am #
  66. What a great site!  I can only find the little ones at 1 of the dollar stores.  HEY BILL #59 the Six-to-pus… I too would love to see that again.  I love the theme song and you got it right.  If not the TV commercial, then at least a picture of him.  Can anyone help me find him?  Take care y’all.

  67. my dad was the national sales manager of chunky in the 60’s. The acquired bit-o-honey in 60’s.  I just came across loads of promotional items.  Is there a market for them

  68. Stacey,

    I’d be very interested in seeing what you’ve got from your dad’s Chunky files.  Contact me at CollectingCandy.com

  69. Another Halloween in the rearview mirror, and thoughts and memories of Bit-O-Honey linger.  That was the only time I’d get the “Bit” when I was a small one: if a kind neighbor distributed them for trick-or-treat.  Maybe the reason I don’t mind if my singles are a bit (or even a lot) hard or stale is that if I found one in my goodie bag at the end of the night, that was my PRIZE, and I would save it until last ... even if I didn’t get to it until the tulips were blooming!
