Did you know?
Since the 1920’s, when the term “Butterfinger” was used by sportscasters to describe athletes who were unable to hold onto a baseball or football, Butterfinger has become a beloved brand known for humor and a roster of memorably funny spokespersons, from Bart Simpson to Seth Green to Erik Estrada to Rob Lowe and Jamie Pressly, its most recent and first female spokesperson.
*Butterfinger has designated 2013 as the anniversary benchmark for its first 90ish years. The beloved candy bar, originally invented by Chicago’s Curtiss Candy Company, is believed to have been promoted as early as 1923. However, parent company Nestle? (who has owned Butterfinger since 1990) holds a trademark document that is dated 1928, thus the 90ish reference around the Butterfinger anniversary, keeping in line with the brand’s irreverent sense of humor.
