Can't stop eating them . The Halloween candy is laid out in a dish and the small bite size Snicker Bars are almost history.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 7:02:43 PM EST
For an all around bar I think that is the best one.

followed by Mars bar for me.

I'm very partial to Milky Way bars myself.



I must admit that I made an impulse buy of candy corn tonight on the way home though.

3 Musketeers for me.



Mmmmm...fluffed up chocolate

Those candy dishes never quite make it to Halloween. I'm kinda fond of Babe Ruths this year.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 7:06:35 PM EST
My second choice is a Baby Ruth Bar .

Makes me wish I wasn't allergic to peanuts. I have to settle for a Milky Way.

I dont get it.

Half the pop sold is Diet. Americans are fat as hell and a lot have Diabetes. ()


*If they made these popular bars with Splenda.....

I would still be a Snickers eatin mofo!

Oh yes!

Milky Way Midnight in second place.

I'm actually thinking of hiding out at the office tomorrow to avoid the trick-or-treaters. The leftovers always kill me.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 7:26:14 PM EST
why do they call the small ones "fun size?" It makes no sense.

YUP! Same here!

I have fond memories of snickers bars.

My grandfather was a computer progarmmer back in the days when they filled up rooms and he would buy me a snickers when I visted him at work.

Some runner ups would include:

Chunky
Troika
Cuba

(my candy tends to be socialist)

Great bar, as is Heath Bar, Butterfingers and Milky Way.

ETA: How the heck could I have forgotten Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

Snickers Bars are the best candy bars to have for use as energy bars when your on the go, they give a quick energy boost and keep you going until you have time for a meal.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 7:43:44 PM EST
3 Musketeers. No frakking nuts, no frakking caramel. Just chocolate and nougat. Perfect.


MMmmm... nougat...

Milky way vs Crack Cocaine


Can't tell you which is more addictive.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 7:49:27 PM EST
Yup, they'll make my "Top 5" list every time.

Love to put them in the friDge or even the freezer.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 7:54:47 PM EST
Reese's nutrageous, its like they took a snicker, removed the nasty ass nougat and replaced it with peanut butter.

Snickers is the best, followed by Milky Way and 3 Musketeers.

Basic Chocolate bar? Hershey's bar, the best since God-Knows-When. Heck, is been a staple of military rations since WW2.



HERSHEY’S chocolate goes to war.
With the outbreak of World War II, the Hershey Chocolate Corp. (which had provided milk chocolate bars to American doughboys in the first war) was already geared up to start producing a survival ration bar for military use. By the end of the war, more than a billion of these Ration D bars had been produced and the company had earned no less than five Army-Navy “E” Production Awards for its exceptional contributions to the war effort. In fact, the company’s machine shop even turned out parts for the Navy’s antiaircraft guns.


Another piece of Hershey's Military history was the story of 1st Lt. Gail Halvorsen of Garland, Utah; but he is forever known by German kids during the Berlin Airlift as the "Der Schokoladen-fliegen", or Chocolate Flyer.

In the early hours of June 24, 1948, the Russian Soviets halted all traffic into and out of Berlin, effectively cutting off the entire city. Almost immediately, the U.S. Air Force commenced an airlift of food supplies to trapped inhabitants. One of the pilots flying the Berlin Airlift was 1st Lt. Gail Halvorsen of Garland, Utah. Seeing a crowd of children at the end of the Templehof airport runway, Halvorsen started dropping HERSHEY’S chocolate bars for them whenever he made a run in his C-54 plane.

The delivery system was straightforward enough. He tied a handkerchief to each candy bar, which acted as a tiny parachute, and dropped them out the plane’s flare chute. Flying into Templehof, he’d wiggle his wings, so the children would know to expect their heaven-sent treats. Thanks to his candy drops, Halvorsen soon became the most widely publicized symbol of the Berlin Airlift. But the children simply called him The Chocolate Flier.


Oh, trust me, I know my chocolate history.

1. Snickers
2. Butterfinger
3. Zero
4. Crunch
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 8:18:13 PM EST
If it must be Snickers, then let it be Snickers with almonds. Otherwise, give me dark chocolate.

BTW, Colonial Williamsburg has this chocolate bar made by the Mars Candy Company. Mars looked at how they made chocolate at Williamsburg and reversed engineered it. Their chocolate isn't something you much on. Instead, break off a piece and pop it into your mouth. Let it dissolve slowly and savor the flavor.

Milk chocolate blows. Only good stuff is dark. (At bare minimum 70%, preferably 80%+)

But Snickers is the best all-around candy bar (besides the aforementioned solid dark chocolate bars)

*nods*

I was in Frankfurt (germany, not il ) a couple of years ago, doing some Christmas shopping, and I went nuts with all the 80%+ blends I found there.

Hmm. For an all-around standard candy bar, the Snickers is okay, but it's TOO much. I'd rather have a three muskateers OR a Hershey's Bar with ALMONDS! HMMM.

Reese's Cups, Almond Joys, and Kit-Kat bars are also very good "standard" candy bars that don't have TOO much stuff on them...

Of course, a Hershey's "Dark Chocolate" bar is fine all by itself w/o nuts or whatever. Something about how you just savor the taste of dark chocolate.

Snickers, then Kit Cats...

I like the King Size Snickers.... man is that ever a good candy bar.
The little teeny ones in my halloween bowl dont taste the same though.


I also like the Whatchamacallit Bars those are tasty too.

Link Posted: 10/29/2006 9:52:57 PM EST
Almonds bar then Mounds...

#3 Almond joy

Hate peanuts

Worst candy bar in existence = Snickers bar

Baby Ruth is number one with me.

Frozen.

Best. Bar. Ever.

Even unfrozen it's pretty damn good, but it's totally other-worldly when chilled...

Hershey bar, plain or with carmel
Link Posted: 10/30/2006 6:56:16 AM EST
According to the kids a Halloween, the Reeces Peanut Butter Cup tops the list. Reminds me, I need to get some, they were out at the store the other day.

No white chocolate. White chocolate is the Devil's work.

I can't remember the last time I ate a candy bar, but I always liked Nestle Crunch bars and Three Musketeers.

Throw a snickers in a public pool sometime for laughs!
