Yinzer Bars are back for the holidays, with some very Pittsburgh themes.

Those sweet chocolate bars Canonsburg’s Sarris Candies produces year-round come wrapped in Yinzer themes for Christmas, as Yinzer Bars make a holiday return.

A collection of milk chocolate candy bars, Yinzer Bars come from the somewhat twisted minds of the creators of Yinzer Greeting Cards.

Pittsburgh comedian Jim Krenn, radio personality Larry Richert, cartoonist Rob Rogers and public relations expert and fourth partner Dick Roberts of Giant Eagle/Market District are the brains behind the bars.

With “the most wonderful time of the year” upon us, Christmas and holiday-themed Yinzer Bars, featuring a Rudolph the Reindeer Stiller, a black and gold-trimmed Christmas tree and a nod to Santa’s holiday parking, are now being sold, Roberts says.

The bars are available at Pittsburgh-area Giant Eagle, Market District, GetGo, Kuhn’s Markets and Hallmark stores, and the Heinz History Center and Visit Pittsburgh gift shops and sell for $2.99, according to Roberts.

As with previous Yinzer Bars, proceeds will benefit Spenser’s Voice Fund, a nonprofit established to help curb the drug epidemic in young adults.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
