(I resisted the urge to title this thread "What candy bar are you enjoying tonight?")

After lunch, I felt the need for sugar, so I went next door to CVS and looked at their candy bar section. As I perused my options, I thought about which candy bars were my "old reliables", e.g. always have a taste for, vs those I only occasionally have a hankerin' for. Being a major sweettooth, there's not many candy bars I don't like. So, I thought this would be another way to get to know my Axiom brethren (and occasional sis ... uh, sistren ? ) better.

Here's what I came up with as far as favorites:

1. Snickers - the king of candy bars!
2. Twix - favorite road trip food.
3. M&M's (plain) - danger, easy to munch out of a big bag at work.
4. 100 Grand - don't always see this one; it needs more respect!
5. Crunch - also great in an ice cream novelty, as are 1,2.

Honorable mention: Reese's (easily my wife's favorite), Reese's pieces, all other M&M varieties, toffee bars (Heath, Skor), Caramello, Rolo, Milk Duds (I know, not a bar, but great home theater food), Nutrageous, Marathon bar (great memories in the 1970s)

Here's the ones I like least:

1. Zagnut - peanut butter and coconut, not a match made in heaven.
2. Baby Ruth - too sweet! Makes my teeth hurt.
3. 3 Musketeers - too much nougat; the "Where's the Beef" of chocolate bars.
4. Non-chocolate bars that invade the chocolate area, like Payday.
5. Zero - the white chocolate does not do it for me.

I was going to include a poll where we could select one favorite candy bar, but the list of options would seem daunting by this wikipedia list. Oh well, at least the list makes for some nice research material... *chomp

Oh yeah, I ended up getting a Snickers. Long live the King!

In no particular order, Twix, Heath, See's Toffee, 3 Musketeers, M&Ms dark, etc, etc.

I like most of 'em. And Butterfingers in small quantities.

This kind of falls into the expensive exotica category:

Zzang! bars, from Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and by mail order. They're something like Snickers, but 1000X tastier. Un-freakin'-believably good. And shockingly expensive. But damn, they're tasty. My favorite candy of any sort, period. Maybe my favorite food. Or substance.

My wife worked at Zingerman's for a time, and supplied us ultra-high quality chocolate for years. Now I find ordinary chocolate bars mouth-burningly sweet and typically lacking in...you know...actual chocolate.

I do like a Twix now and then (I like the cookie texture), and Reese's cups (my favorite kid-candy), and Hershey's kisses with nuts.

The weirdest candy bar I've had that still tastes good: Mo's Bacon Bar by Vosge. Also jaw-droppingly expensive. Probably not essential eating, but pretty good.

Yeah, I'm with you on the small quantities of Butterfinger. That's another that Gail likes a lot, but it doesn't rank for me.

I like Mr. Goodbar and Almond Joy a lot. 3 Musketeers has never appealed to me. Like JP said, too much nougat.

Peanut M&Ms rule!

I'm with Zimbo. I grew up with european chocolate and as a kid, chocolate was a special treat, not a staple. My parents didn't even consider that the stuff made here qualified as chocolate.

Godiva raspberry is near the top of my list as are dark chocolate coated brazil nuts (one of the treats my grandparents sent from Austria). Well made truffles are always good.

I did love rollos as a kid and I still like a crispy crunch now and then.

Yes, I'm a fan of about every candy mentioned so far. I always liked the cherry nibs and chocolate covered cinnamon bears too. I'm glad the $100,000 bar is still around.

One of my all time favorites that dissapeared was the Mars bar. The Almond Snickers Bar is supposed to be the new name, but it just doesn't seem quite the same to me. Maybe it's my memory however?

Snickers is numero uno for me. It used to be Krackle before it was retired. I do like Nestle's Crunch, also.

Hershey's Whatchamacallit's here. Been awhile now but I used to chow them down in years past. Snickers, Crunch bars, and Twix are hard to beat. As well as many others. Let's face it, chocolate it good. Not a big fan of anything with coconut in it though. M&M's with peanuts rock as well. Thanks guys, there goes supper.

Dang, $7 a pop! You weren't kidding. Still, I might have to give it a shot.

I'd have to go with snickers and almond joy. But definitely agree that European (ie. real) chocolate is full of win.

They do the same thing to me. Infact most chocolate seems to. I looked up why it does that because I was a bit concerned when I would eat something chocolate only to be in quite alot of pain for a minute or so and IIRC it has something to do with the low quality of the chocolate used and acids reacting... I dunno.

I like baby ruth's if they didnt kill me. Not much for candybars anymore although i do like the occasional butterfinger or big hunk.

Charles, my one word tells you all that you really need to know on the subject. I do, however, certainly agree with Jim that Zingerman's is yet another instance where Ann Arbor reigns supreme(you might also try the cinnamon rolls).

If you'd like to check out a wider range of thoughts on candy bars and other snacks, you might try this .

Skor for taste.

Reeses PB Cups to satisfy the craving created every time I see the wrapper or hear the words.

Reeses Peanuts or any kind of chocolate covered almonds for movie snacks.

The winner is.....
Any one of the above blended in with Ice Cream!!!!!

Agreed though, I can rarely find it but after having a 'real' European style chocolate, it's hard to go back.

Dave, I think we still have the Mars bar up here. But ours is in a black package and it doesn't have any nuts in it. Is that the one you mean?

Didn't Berkshire Hathaway buy Mars recently? Maybe we can write to Warren Buffet and request the return of the Mars bar to Utah!

Thanks Amie! The Mars bar found in Canada and Europe is different. The US Mars had almonds and caramel. But if you have any pull with Warren Buffet then it's definitely worth a try. \:\)

I can tell you however that I would never give up my Axioms, even for chocolate.

Reese's, Twix, Kit-Kat, Snickers for the megas.

But the classic Almond Roca from Tacoma's Brown and Haley is awfully good. They are now making "thins" which might be even better. Peanut butter Mountain Bars are good, too.

I don't know if it is considered a candy bar but I love York Pepper Mint patties.

All right, the Zzang candy bars are here. I won't try one until tomorrow evening, but at least now I know they're 3 ounces.

How about Junior Mints?! YUM!!! \:\)

Does anyone remember the Marathon Bar from the 70's? It was like braided caramel strips covered in chocolate. I loved that candy bar!

My current addiction is the Salted Nutroll. Can't beat the price either...2 for $1 at the grocery store right now.

Me too! Every two weeks I had to go to the allergist to get a shot. This was before it was common to give them at home. In the medical complex, there was a gift shop right across the hall from Dr. Bannister's office. For a long time, my ritual was to get a Marathon bar (for a quarter) after each shot. I think it was circa 1976 so I would have been 8 years old.

<Grampa Simpson> "We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time I took the fairy to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you'd say. Now where were we, oh ya. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because if the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones." </Grampa Simpson>

I thought this was going to be a story about being allergic to something in the Marathon, but they were so good that you ate them anyway.

Had chocolate covered cranberries from the overpriced health food store yesterday.

Not impressed. Good chocolate but with very little cranberry taste. Not a total loss though as I had the illusion of healthy eating while downing way too much chocolate.

Where's the DuPont Registry? That's the best part of the local supermarket.

They also had an orange flavored one for awhile, not sure if they still make it. It was very good.

I've been hitting the Snickers again. I have to remember to leave some for the trick-or-treaters.

Peter, you'll have to tell us about your exploits at work.

Hey, I know how to clean that out. Take a big swing of a freshly opened Pepsi and then read the joke thread.

The carbonation bubbles are like Drano and will scrub out all trace of muffin.

Trust me, I'm a doctor.

Wasabi, lightly dipped in Soy Sauce. Way more effective. Gets right up into the sinus cavities.
