Even though it's been literally years since I've had either.

Very, very similar products--main difference being Take 5's pretzel.

Would probably have to give the nod to Take 5, but only by the narrowest of margins.
I'd forgotten about Take 5. They were really good!

I'm not a candy guy, but since I'm a nut guy, I love these.

Re: What is the best candy bar?

I can't seem to find these outside of gas stations. It's like a Nutrageous mixed with a Butterfinger.



And I can never understand when anyone would want a 3 Musketeers when you could upgrade to a Milky Way, or settle for a Milky Way when you could snag a far superior Snickers. Ridiculous!


Nutrageous are also pretty good.

I'm not real big on payday because I don't like the caramel or the nougat or whatever is in There but this was a great bar.

Re: What is the best candy bar?

Don't eat many candy bars these days, but when I do, it's usually Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. They have to be fresh though. I actually prefer the Reese's Easter eggs.

Back in the day Skor and whatchamacallit were consumed in great numbers as well.

Re: What is the best candy bar?

I'm unsure if this is restricted to US, but Sahne-Nuss from Chile is my absolute favourite (Until probably I visit switzerland)

Once or twice a year they make them available on their web site as fresh off the belt. We ordered them a couple times and it's tough to go back to regular Reese's cups after having the fresh ones.

I live just outside of philly and up until a few years ago a 7/11 aroundth corner always had coffee Crisp for sale.

3 Musketeers is meant for people with peanut allergies or who don't like peanuts.

The Kinder Surprise eggs? They're great, I get them for my kids all the time. Illegal to import into the US though, the FDA thinks American kids are too stupid to eat the chocolate shell without choking on the toy inside (which is enclosed in a big plastic capsule inside the egg. C'mon, no one is choking on that!).

My mother loved Three Musketeers. She wasn't allergic to peanuts, and she liked them, but she just had definite ideas about candy bars. Her very favorite, however, was the Cherry Mash.

As for me, my favorite is the Mars bar, with the Milky Way Simply Caramel coming in as a close second.

Oh, of course there's nothing stopping normal people from enjoying them. But they've been made in peanut-free facilities for ages now.

Snickers FTW!

I can't resist Reese's peanut butter cups but I don't consider that a candy bar

Re: What is the best candy bar?

It's pretty predictable. But I love my Snickers. Don't eat them anymore, but MAN... a King-Size bar, slightly chilled (NOT frozen)... perfect. Better than eating your own face,

Those Overloads can't be sold in the U.S. I promise you I would have remembered those things If I ever saw one in a store. They look insanely good.

Re: What is the best candy bar?

Can't you just put an Oreo or chocolate chip cookie on top of a peanut butter cup and eat it?

Apple pie I like hot. With cold vanilla ice cream.

Did you ever have that with chocolate chip ice cream? Sal introduced me to that.

Ring-dings and chocolate chip ice cream... wait, chocolate SWIRL ice cream, even better...

That's nothing. Did you ever suck the jelly out of a jelly doughnut and then fill it with chocolate swirl ice cream?

I like to stuff a jelly doughnut with Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, then put it in a warm oven, and let the chocolate and everything melt into the dough.

How about Peanut Butter and Jelly on a chocolate covered graham cracker? With thin layers of bananas on top!

I make chocolate chip cookies with M&Ms instead of chocolate chips... they don't melt in your hands.

At Crone's, they got chocolate covered orange wedges. The juice just dribbles down your chin...

Junior, could I have just a drop of honey in this? Just a drop...

Get the honey junior...

Give him the honey, junior!!

What else do they cover with that chocolate, besides the orange wedges? Grapes? Peaches? Strawberries? Those big juicy stemmed strawberries dipped into that dark, dark chocolate...

GET THE HONEY!

GET THE HONEY!!!

They definitely were. I remember thinking they didn't taste as good as they should have.

You and I must have the same taste in candy bars, because I agree completely with both of these statements. I even had to check for a second to make sure I wasn't responding to one of my own posts!
