unknown K ration candy bar - curtiss candy co.

Recommended Posts

I've never seen one of these before and that doesn't mean much, but neither had the kration.info guy

 

I wondered if anybody had a) seen one of these before or even better, B) knew which of the candy bars curtiss made that they put in k rations

 

I know for a fact it's from a k ration because I opened it myself. flap said 2-45 iirc.

The Curtis Candy Company lists that it's Jolly Jack was included in WW2 US K Rations. It does not refer to the Jolly Jack as a candy bar but only as candy.

 

The company's literature does not mention any other of their products that were included in K Rations. They are famous for the Baby Ruth (introduced in 1920) and Butterfinger (introduced in 1923) candy bars but were the creators of a myraid of candy products since the company's founding in 1916 so it is probably that other Curtis products found their way into the hands of US servicemen and women during the war.
