Don’t we all love the 90’s? Olsen twins, jean jackets and Nirvana pretty much define the 90’s but what I remember most were the commercials. If you see a 90’s commercial, you immediately know it’s from the 90’s because they were so unique to the decade. Candy companies like Mars and Hershey’s were advertising on TV more often in the 90’s than they are today. It's really fun to see what has and hasn't changed in candy commercials, here is a look at the top 5 candy commercials of the 90’s.
5. 1993 Reese's Commercial "How ____ Eats a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup"
These commercials were classic! The possibilities were endless for Reese's and the commercials made you want to grab some Reese's peanut butter cups. I remember the "there's no wrong way to eat a Reese's" commericals more than any other commercial campaign from the 90's.

Do you remember M&M Mars PR's successful campaign to vote for the next M&M color. The voting was between pink, blue, and purple to be the next color in M&M's assortment. The color blue came out the winner and numerous successful commercials followed.

The Simpsons were such a powerful marketing tool in the 90's. They had such a strong following that it is no suprise that Butterfinger enlisted Bart Simpson to represent Butterfinger BB's
2. 1995 Kit Kat "Give Me a Break" Commercial
We've all hummed the jingle for "break me off a piece of that kit kat bar." This commercial takes 90's jingles to a new level. Complete with flying graphics, cut off neon tank tops and a catchy song this commercial has all the elements of a perfect 90's commercial.
1. 1990 Snickers Batman Commercial
This is a hilarious commercial classic for Snicker's. They have had a great deal of success with "hungry why wait?" campaigns in the 2000's but personally, I like the "not going anwywhere for awhile?" themed campaigns like this one.
I hope these commercials were nostalgic and fun to watch. If you built up an appetite check out Candy Pros great selection of Bulk Candy Bars.
