Snickers.

I think the old candy bars are the best!

My sister used to work at Pearson Candy Company in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. (Home of the Nut Goodie, Salted Nut roll, and Pearson Mint Patty.) She rode in a carpool to work with other women who worked on the assembly line. Pearson once made the 7-UP bar which had 7 different segments to it such as coconut, jelly, vanilla nougat, a Brazil nut, etc. - all joined together, and the whole thing was covered with chocolate. It was a very good candy bar, but alas it is no longer made. Every now and then management moved the women around, and Joyce would tell me how the women would complain in the car. "Now I have to do the Brazil nut. I hate to do the Brazil nut. It has to go right in the center, and that's the hardest part , gettiing it right in the center." "Well, now I'm doing your coconut and those shreds keep sticking to my fingers." "Your fingers? It's getting all over my jelly pieces! Can't you be more careful?" "Your Brazil nut is off-center." "Well, your nougat doesn't look that great either, and when you sneeze, you should turn your head." Etc., etc., etc. Life was not so easy in CandyBarLand. Hmmm, maybe that is why the 7-UP bar is no more.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

Wonka bars. I'm such a dork, but they're so much better than just regular Hershey's chocolate or Crunch bars. :)

Snickers for sure. Really hard to eat as well. The fucking nuts get stuck in every tooth in your mouth. A job to eat but worth it.

Bounty...but,yeah, Snickers is pure genius in a wrapper. Have to go for Bounty, though. Brilliant. Wish they were bigger, instead of just two fun sizes. Shame, that. But, if i have to list only one...I'd say Mars Ice-Cream bar, if there is such a fing.

Milky-Way bars are the best!
And, actually, skybars are pretty good, too!

Other than that, I think dark chocolate is the best.

Snickers!!!
Until a few years ago snickers were very hard to find here in Italy.
When I went to the US for the first time in 1987, I had never heard of them...But now we are finally "civilized"! LOL

I have heaps of favourites.
I have fond memories of frozen Mars and Milky Ways though - yum yum yum :-)

To this day the smell of a Mars bar always makes me feel like a little kid again. Whenever I had to go to the doctor for my jabs my mum would buy me a Mars bar for being brave and good.

Yipes! There are a whole lot of candy bars out there I have never even heard of or tried. In the interest of candy-tasting science and reporting, is there anyone out there ready to experiment with some of these favorites? Put a new one on your grocery list and let us know what you think. Will you be a convert?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

I remember when I was a kid my dad brought these 'Garoto' chocolates from Brazil, and they were absolutely the best candy I've ever had.
