Almond Joy and Mounds- Armenian Candy? A Story by Joel Denker

If you’re old enough, you might remember a TV commercial jingle that started out with these lyrics: ‘Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t …’

If you DO remember this, then you’ll know that the rest of the jingle referred to Peter Paul Almond Joy and Mounds candy bars.

Joel Denker sent me the link to a very interesting story he posted on his ‘Food Passages’ blog last month. The topic: Peter Halajian, founder of the Peter Paul Manufacturing Company.
