Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Jem… and Symphony Bars

June 9, 2022

This week, we revisit Jem! Jem and the Holograms was a hit Saturday Morning Cartoon that ran from 1985-1988. It rose to the top of the Nielsen Ratings its first two years, and then dropped down into relative obscurity. We talk about the show's strong cult following, original songs, toy tie-ins, and the 2015 reboot film. 

Before digging into Jem, we try a Hershey's Symphony bar. Launched in 1989, this candy bar was create to appeal to wealthier and European customers. Did we love it? Did we hate it? Were the songs from Jem bops or flops?
