Candy Greatness

Why is it that candy from the past always seems to have the very best wrapper designs -- especially when compared to the garbage that passes for design today?

Also, can anyone tell me anything about the Pierce Arrow candy -- other than the pretty obvious fact that it was named for the popular car line of the time? Did any of you ever eat one? Was it like a Butterfinger?

Thanks to Matt for finding this link. :-)

I liked the candy cop spouting off how wonderfully nutricious those candy bars are -- sugar gives you energy!
