Nestlé Chunky is a candy bar known for its trapezoidal shape and consists of milk chocolate, Californiamarker raisins and roasted peanuts. It is produced by Nestlé.

The Chunky candy bar was introduced in the late 1930s by New York Citymarker candy maker, Philip Silvershein. Looking for a name for his candy bar, then made with cashews, chocolate, raisins and Brazilian nuts, he decided on Chunky, the nickname of his "chunky" granddaughter.

Supposedly, the original shape of the candy was a pyramid , but after packaging difficulties developed, the top was cut off, creating the candy's distinctive shape that remains to this day.

Silvershein, a friend of William Wrigley Jr., originally had his Chunky bars distributed by the Wrigley Gum Company.

In the 1950s, a Chunky could be purchased for five cents, with a smaller version, the Chunky Cutie, available for two cents.

An early 1970s TV commercial for Chunky showed a young boy watching TV with his father. The boy amused viewers by claiming that Chunky was "THICKER-ER."

Other Chunky advertising slogans included "Chunky, What a Chunk of Chocolate", intoned by the nasal voice of Arnold Stang and "Open Wide for Chunky".
