A Wienermobile? No, we have a Chickenmobile!

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has nothing on this fleet of chicken trucks! These trucks are part of the Sperry Candy Company fleet in Vincennes, Indiana . It appears that the Sperry Candy Company created “chicken dinner good candy” for 5 cents! The Chicken Dinner Candybar was a nut roll. The Sperry Company was headquartered in Milwaukee.

In the photo above two men are sitting on the running board of a “chicken truck.” John C. R. Snyder is on the left and an unidentified man is on the right. Both of these photos are from the private collection of Marjorie A. Kaiser, Vincennes.

Google Chicken Dinner Candybar for some fascinating history on this sweet concoction.
