As an Ontarian, I had no idea of the existence of these products, but before the Winnipeg manufacturer went out of business in 1991, Cuban Lunch was apparently huge in the West. In 2018 the product was resurrected by an Alberta couple who wanted to re-create the classic experience for Crystal Regehr-Westergard’s elderly mother.
Since then, they’ve sold hundreds of thousands of bars, though they’ve had their challenges in keeping the bars stocked due to huge demand. They are now also relaunching the Rum & Butter bar, which again I’ve never heard of but existed into the 90’s before it was discontinued by Cadbury.
