The “Candy bar protest”, also known…

The “Candy bar protest”, also known as “the 5 cent chocolate war”, “the 5 cent war”, and “the chocolate candy bar strike”, was a short-lived 1947 protest by Canadian children over the increase in price of chocolate bars from five to eight cents.

As the children marched, they sang:

We want a 5 cent chocolate bar
8 cents is going too darn far
We want a 5 cent chocolate bar
Oh, we want a 5 cent bar.
