Was it labeled $1.00 and you actually paid $100?

Wait… were they selling chocolate bars to fund this project like a middle school fundraiser would?

This is amazing!

I'm from MA, and in 2007 I went to Vegas and visited the Hoover Dam. Shared a van with two different mid-western families. At the time they were building the new bridge by the Hoover Dam. The tour guide has mentioned that the bridge was being constructed by the same team that pioneered the Big Dig. Everyone in the van shuddered.

This chocolate bar has held up better than the actual big dig.

Was the state making candy bars and selling them to fund this atrocity? They probably sold them at a loss and made the tax payers foot the bill.

I'm intrigued. Who the hell made this and why?

The back says , Barnes and Noble distributed it. Why did I buy it? Why keep it? It's a running gag in our family at this point. I also just threw out 2001 box of Wheaties with the Patriots superbowl pic, lol

OMG that's awesome. I think you should bury that in a secret place and make a very hard and confusing map and have a treasure hunt for it.

In the 90’s they had a picture of cars going over the Zakim? 🤔

If it was truly a Big dig relic, it cost a $100 to make but it was probably sold for a dollar, then the taxpayers picked the rest!
