Which candy bar used Bart Simpson as a spokes-character in their TV ads?
- Kit Kat
- Baby Ruth
Answer: Butterfinger is a popular peanut-butter and chocolate candy bar. There have been 150 commercials for Butterfinger which featured The Simpsons beginning in 1988, when America’s Most Wanted first aired. Many of the commercials featured Homer trying to get Bart’s Butterfinger, but would be one-upped by Bart each time. Each commercial closes with Bart saying the catchphrase, “Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!” Most of these advertisements have been released on The Simpsons DVD sets as bonus features.
