Starbar is a brand of chocolate bar manufactured by Cadbury. The bar has a chocolate covering and is filled with caramel and crushed roasted peanuts. The product is also sold in Canada and Germany under the name Wunderbar.
Initially popular in the mid-1970s, it was promoted as "the munchiest bar ever" and in 1985 it briefly became "Peanut Boost", only to return to Starbar as popularity of the Boost bar waned. It was promoted in the UK in the mid-1980s with a postal offer (3 wrappers plus P+P got you a Starbar Ruler, Pencil and a copy of Douglas Adams' "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe").
In Canada and Germany, Wunderbar is a Cadbury Adams product marketed under licence of Cadbury UK Limited. It is also available in a package of "minis" and in a 12 g size for Halloween.
Starbar was introduced to Australia in November 2012 (made in Ireland); however, it is no longer available and no longer listed on the Cadbury Australia website.
