Some Abba Zaba History:
Abba Zaba goes back to the 1920s, definitely a classic treat! Made by the Annabelle Candy Company in Hayward, California, this candy bar has had its share of fame.
This nostalgic treat was a longtime favourite snack of young Don Van "Captain Beefheart" Violet, as well. He named a song after this beloved treat on his 1967 album, "Safe As Milk". Although he originally wanted to name the album "Abba Zaba", Annabelle Candy wouldn't agree to the terms. However, Captain Beefheart did manage to have the artwork on the back of his album resemble the black and yellow checkerboard reminiscent of an Abba Zaba wrapper.
Abba Zaba is also mentioned by Tom Waits in his song " Chocolate Jesus". It also was famously loved by Dave Chapelle in the movie Half Baked. He claimed it as his "only friend". This is truly an old-fashioned candy bar that has been enjoyed and loved by generations!
Abba Zaba's slogan says it best ..." one won't do, better buy two."
