SkyBar Confectionary Co.’s Sky Bar candy bar is now in production and available for sale. The Sky Bar brand was purchased by Louise Mawhinney, owner of Duck Soup in Sudbury, in the September 2018 auction of the assets of the former New England Confectionery Co. (NECCO).

The company said production is up and running, and that the product is kosher certified. However, orders are currently only being taken at Duck Soup or online. The company intends to expand availability across the country early next year.

“We hope Sky Bar fans will love the bar as much as we do; we went back to the 1970s recipe for a richer chocolate and maintained local roots by sourcing peanuts from Teddie and incorporating Fluff into our vanilla section,” said Mawhinney. “We are proud to be making the Sky Bar in Massachusetts, which is its home.”

Sky Bars are being manufactured in a showcase facility right next to Duck Soup.

“You can see Sky Bars being made,” said Mawhinney. “Think of a craft beer maker, except this is a candy bar.”

Introduced by NECCO in 1938 with a dramatic skywriting advertising campaign, Sky Bar’s technological innovation was its four distinctly different centers—caramel, vanilla, peanut and fudge. Sky Bar has appeared in movies over the years, and its sign was one of only six that lit up on VE Day in 1945 when the blackout in Times Square was lifted. Sky Bar was produced by NECCO until May 2018.
