The peanut butter and chocolate candy bar has designated 2013 as its 90-ish birthday. While there's a trademark document that dates back to 1928, officials believe the candy bar was first promoted in 1923. The Curtiss Candy Company, which was based in Chicago, made Butterfinger and also the Baby Ruth candy bar. They're both now made by Nestle.
