The Seinfeld - Candy Connection


Most of us are familiar with the famous Seinfeld episode in which Kramer accidentally flings a Jr. Mints into the body of a surgery patient. (See my candy trivia quiz below.) But there are many episodes in which various candy brands are either featured or mentioned. Let's see if you remember these.

  1. The recurring character, Sue Ellen Mischke, was the heiress to the Oh Henry! candy bar fortune.
  2. George accuses a mechanic at a car dealership of stealing his Twix bar. He claims he wants his 75 cents back, but then realizes that it only costs 50 cents.
  3. In that same episode, in trying to figure our which candy bar was stolen from George, someone suggests it was a $100,000 Bar. Another person is quick to note that the name was changed from $100,000 Bar to 100 Grand. (Incidentally, this switch was made in 1985).
  4. Elaine's boyfriend breaks up with her when he learns that she stopped first to buy a box of Jujy Fruits at a movie theater before seeing him after he was rushed to the hospital. In that same episode, she blows a big business deal when her mouth is full of Jujy Fruits and she cannot deliver an important message.
  5. Mr. Pitt eats a Snickers bar with a knife and fork.
  6. George is in an ambulance when a fight breaks out between the driver and a paramedic over who ate the red Chuckles
  7. Chunky candy bar wrappers left in the couch out Newman as the person who brought fleas into Jerry's apartment.
