Off topic - What is your favorite candy bar?
« on: September 19, 2020, 05:42:46 pm »
I'm not a big candy eater at all. I can't get over 100 pounds no matter how much beer I drink.

Do you think I'm kidding?

I'm NOT!

hehehehehe

My favorite candy bar is Take 5.

It was an accidental find.

What is your favorite candy bar and why? :)

    I love chocolate, so...  I don't think I can choose just one.  Nestle Crunch... Snickers...  KitKat... Hershey's Dark Chocolate... Reese's...  if it's mostly chocolate, chances are I like it.

    I rarely eat chocolate bars but I do have a few favorites.

    Coffee Crisp... because it's a nice light snack.
    Snickers... because I AM me when I'm hungry.  :-[

    I used to love Peanut Butter O'Henry, but then they tinkered with the recipe.

    So now it's Kit Kat and Cadbury Mini Eggs.

    I think it's important to stay relevant to writing, so ......when I'm writing, I like to eat M&M's - plain or peanut. I tried a butter finger bar for the first time in years, and it was so different than I remember, I didn't even finish it. That's terrible chocolate abuse.  :'(

    In order: Baby Ruth, Snickers, Butterfinger, Reeses. I hardly ever find Baby Ruths or Butterfingers anymore, though. Most stores don't seem to carry them.

    Snickers. Then, a far second, a regular old Hershey bar.

    My real weaknesses, tho, are jelly beans and gumdrops. Easter is a near-coma time for me.

    When I was a kid there were these two small bars that I think were cadbury products that no longer seem to exist - one was fudge, the other was mint chocolate.

    Now I like cadbury's rum n raisin.

    Forgot to mention, lately I've had a thing for Whoppers, the malted milk balls that come in what looks like a milk carton.

    I could scarf those things down all day.    :)   :)   :)

    Butterfinger, but also the holiday Reese's Christmas trees.  They have more peanut butter to chocolate than the normal ones.  There were Ben and Jerry's ice cream bars a while back, and also the weird flavor Klondike bars are usually amazing.  Like, Reese's pieces Klondike ice cream bars.  So good.

    Also, there are these things that my german grandma would bring back called schpringles (or something like that, it was a long time ago) and they were weird-good.  Like, the first one was disgusting, but then you wanted another for some reason.

    Reece's, Snickers, Hershey's Kisses...and I forgot how tasty Butterfingers are till someone gave me a box of American candies and chocolate for my birthday. But wow, some of the chewy sweets in the box had the most bizarre flavours and the sugar level had me bouncing off the walls.
    My favourite UK chocolate bars are Mars bars, Turkish delight bars, Daim, and the dark choc and peanut butter flavoured KitKats.
    When I lived in Canada we had a chunky Turkish delight bar called Big Turk and a square of thick chocolate with nuts called Cuban Lunch--I am talking 70's here.
    Does anyone still make Eatmores? They always looked wormy lol...and one time my sister opened one and it indeed had bugs crawling in it!

    Zero is my favorite when I want that white chocolate/nougat combo.

    I'm also a sucker for Starburst jelly beans.

    Problem is, they were huge as a kid. As an adult, they're just two bites.

    Kinda like Wagon Wheels. I remember them being the size of a bin lid. Now they're about the size of a 5p coin...

    Reese's peanut butter cups. At Easter peanut butter eggs (which are somehow different - and yes, they must be the Reese's brand).

      Has anyone ever heard of sponge candy?  I'm from Buffalo NY originally and it kinda seems like that's the only place it exists.  It is the weirdest and maybe best candy ever.  Probably one out of the three things to check out if you are ever in Buffalo.

      Nothing - and I repeat nothing - can beat the Finnish make Karl Fazer. :) (pronounced "Fahtser") They come in different colors and sizes, and the blue one is Absolute Chocolate Heaven. Outside of Finland, they're only available in a limited number of North European countries but I think you can buy them online these days too. The one on the picture is a half-pound one, their most popular size :)

      I left this in the WC for one go-round, since so many people had responded by the time I saw it. But threads like this generate tons of "this is off topic!" reports, so it's going here for its second life. Signing off in good (or not so) health ...

      Reese's by far is my #1. Lately I have kept bags of their thins in the freezer. I also like Cadbury Dairy Milk and Fruit and Nut, but the UK/Irish ones are best and they are hard to find in the U.S. now. Peanut Butter Snickers, but I haven't seen them lately. Butterfingers. Another thing I have in the fridge is a box of Whoppers. I gained a lot of weight since Covid started, so I keep treats in the fridge and freezer and only eat now and then.

      For months I've been more into Prince of Peace Ginger Chews, Werther's caramels and Nips caramels. This started when I had an ear problem. Sucking on candy gave me relief.

      My fave is Milky Way followed by Nestles Crunch bar and 1000 Grand.  I suppose I am among the few who do not care for Reeses or Snickers.
