This ad creeped me out, but made the candy bar seem exotic. I finally had one the other day. It was not exotic. The ad still creeps me out.

    My formal introduction to Whatchamacalit was a lady in a nearby neighborhood handing out these Full Size Whatchamacalit bars when they were new one Halloween.

    I actually like Whatchamacalit, and even though I was under the impression that they went away years ago I bought one at a local 7-Eleven and was taken back to that awesome Halloween.

  2. I don’t remember that particular ad; the ones I always remember seeing were the “whatdaya call it?” ads. Pretty cool 80s goodness there. Thanks for digging that one up…
