Never heard of this before. Can anyone explain "And see behind the German lines."

It's a movie playing at the Granby theater.

Thanks to some handy dandy googling - the Chicken Dinner Candy Bar was supposed to be "Candy made good." It was the precursor to the power bar, a nut bar covered in chocolate. The name was in reference to President Hoover's promise of "A chicken in every pot." during the Great Depression.

No clue about the seeing behind the German lines. I'm guessing there was something on the inside of the wrapper or something like that.

Seth,
Truth be known, to me that is as much a reason for me to login, as how to fix my T!
Thanks,
Kevin

I remember those, they looked a little like a chicken leg and were sort of a Babe Ruth knock off without the chocolate on the outside.

I remember one of my uncles telling about going to visit some relatives in Miller County, Missouri, back during the depression. He and a cousin made the trip. They stopped at a gas station on the way and each bought a "Chicken Dinner" candy bar.

They had not seen these relatives in many years and were not too sure how "clean" these folks were with their cooking. Soon after arrival at the house, they were asked if they had "been to supper." My uncle replied, "Yeah, we both had a chicken dinner."
