The Oh Henry! candy bar is made with peanuts, caramel, and chocolate and was introduced by the Williamson Candy Company in 1920. It is mistakenly believed to be named after the famous baseball player Hank Aaron. Oh Henry! is actually named for a young man named Henry who regularly visited the Williamson Candy Store.  As the story goes, Henry was friendly with the female clerks who were worked there, and Mr. Williamson frequently overheard the young ladies saying, “Oh, Henry.” Mr. Williamson thought it was a good name for a candy bar and trademarked the name.
