Comment[edit]

Didn't Henry Aaron appear in TV ads for the candy bar for a time in the 1970's? AnonMoos 02:54, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

"Oh Henry! is the heaviest ordinary chocolate bar on sale in Canada"[edit]

What's the definition of "ordinary" here? The Cadbury Mr. Big bar is 60g, I believe. Loganberry (Talk) 00:42, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

If I remember correctly the Canadian Oh Henry is around 62 grams (maybe 62.5). It wouldn't surprise me if it's the heaviest regularly priced (ie non-'king-size') chocolate bar sold throughout Canada. There probably should be a source for the claim though. The one in the picture appears to be marked in both grams (57) and ounces, so I'm guessing it's the American version. Apparently the package contains two smaller bars, which would be another difference from the Canadian one-bar variety. It might be cool to replace the image with one that shows an unwrapped and wrapped chocolate bar side by side, maybe with the unwrapped one broken so you can see inside.--Eloil 06:05, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
By coincidence, I actually have a Canadian Oh Henry! to check right now, and you're right: it's 62.5 grams. I've edited that line now. Loganberry (Talk) 12:56, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Trying to contribute a Popular Culture reference[edit]

I'm trying to add an interesting reference regarding O-Henry candy bars and their relation to Henry Rodriguez. It keeps getting erased. I don't get it. Even added references from the Chicago Tribune. ????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.165.153.101 (talk) 05:19, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Smiths Falls[edit]

Someone that knows more on the topic should update the Canada section. I haven't been there in years, but I'm pretty sure the town's name is Smiths Falls (not Smith's Falls), and that the Hershey factory closed in 2008. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.136.118.255 (talk) 03:39, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

It is Smiths Falls, and factory, closed in 2008, has been purchased as of May 31, 2012,per this article :http://www.dcnonl.com/article/id50209/--former-hershey-chocolate-factory-in-smiths-falls-ontario-sold 74.114.172.17 (talk) 18:56, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Article needs more details re: bumper-sticker campaign[edit]

Article: Glossinger went into the streets and pasted onto automobile bumpers stickers saying merely "Oh Henry!".

Did he obtain permission from the car owners first? If so, did he compensate them, and how much were they paid? One would guess that he did, especially given that a) the owners would otherwise say "Some [expletive] put this on my car" rather than "It's a candy bar" or the like and b) he might otherwise get in trouble with the law, but specifics would be nice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Antediluvian67 (talkcontribs) 19:30, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

one for the geeks...[edit]

Just been watching the Powell and Pressburger film '49th Parallel'. In the first reel there is a scene in a canadian log cabin where a book can be seen lying flat on a shelf with the title 'Oh Henry!'. No reference is made to it; it appears merely as set dressing... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.160.103.30 (talk) 01:20, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
