    It was a round candy in a silver wrapper. It was covered in milk chocolate and the center was nuget(sp?) and caramel with whole peanuts on the top only. Anyone remember?

    The description of the candy bar sounds like a Reggie Bar:

    When I was in school they made us sell candy from time to time and I remember 2 different kinds.

    One was chocolate covered coconut and was called either Chuck Wagon or Wagon Wheel or something like that.

    The other was chocolate covered peanuts, caramel and either nougat or a crispy cookie base. It was called Nutty Buddy. I Googled it and found a lot of information on athletic protector cups [​IMG] but nothing on candy bars.

    Anyway, Nutty Buddy might be it.

    Sounds like a Chunky, but those were square, not round.

    Still has. I bought one a while back. It's a little like a solid block of Raisinets, & I have nothing bad to say about that.

    Except for the silver wrapper, the candy itself sounds a LOT like the "Reggie" Bar, which was named after Reggie Jackson. That had an orange wrapper, IIRC.

    That's the first one I thought of too. And had the same revelation. It's square. [​IMG]

    Now I want to have one... [​IMG]

    I remember Chuck Wagons and Nutty Buddy. One was chocolate coconuts and the other was chocolate covered peanuts & caramel. They were sold at schools to raise money in the 60's, 70's, and early 80's. I believe it was the Benson Candy Company that sold them.

    It was definitely Chuck Wagon and Nutty Butty - the best candies in the world. I ate more than I sold and my Mother had to pay for them. LOL
