Big Hunk is a candy bar made by Annabelle Candy Company. It first entered production in the 1950s, in the United States. It is a bar of roasted peanuts covered in honey sweetened nougat. It was featured in Steve Almond’s book, Candyfreak, as being one of several successful candies made by a small company. Big Hunk was acquired by Annabelle Candy Company when the company purchased Golden Nugget Candy Company in 1970.

A fun and interesting way to eat a Big Hunk is to slap the unopened bar on a hard surface, such as a table, and shatter the contents. The result is small, bite-sized pieces.

Big Hunk Bars are very chewy, and are known for its bright, high energy and colorful advertisements such as the line "PUT BIG PROFITS IN YOUR POCKET WITH BIG HUNK".[1]
