Sweetening the Message
The group took to distributing Clark candy bars >, and the campaign has followed suit >.   For example, on November 21, 2003 the Clark campaign began a "Race for America" with two teams, North Team and South Team, traveling in RVs and distributing Clark bars along the way.  The campaign uses the 1/2 oz. Clark miniatures.

The official Clark bar website describes the candy as "Delicious, Crunchy, Peanut Butter center with a rich chocolatey coating."  D. L. Clark Company was founded in 1886; the individually wrapped Clark bar dates from the World War I era.  Clark bars are now manufactured by the New England Confectionery Company (NECCO), headquartered in Revere, Mass.
