Chocolate bars celebrating Modesto's arch have new wrapper

September 7, 2012 

— The latest batch of Arch Bars, custom-made chocolate bars being sold to help raise money to restore the city's well-known symbol, has a new, nostalgic wrapper.

The Modesto Chamber of Commerce hopes to raise a few thousand dollars with the candy sales to return the 100-year-old Modesto arch across I Street to its original appearance and splendor.

The $3 bars can be purchased at the chamber office, 1114 J St., at the DoubleTree Hotel and other locations.
