pixie stix >>> flavored powder in a straw that is closed on both ends.

there is a candy bar from about 40+ years ago that I have been trying to think of. It had 25 little squares in a five by five layout in the shape of a bar. each row had a different flavor. I remember caramel and chocolate. the name had five in it. Does any one else remember it? It was my favorite when we could have a candy bar. It was priced similar to the other candy bars at that time.
