I have loads of faves but one that's tops is Cadbury Crunchie. It's an import here in Georgia but I've been willing to pay a little extra for it. Still got to have Snickers and Milky Way too. Miss the crunchie puffed rice Ghiradellhi. Then the Fifth Avenue versus Butterfinger. I just now figured there is no one best candy bar. Bit like ukes they for the most part have something to offer.But enough of that uke stuff this is about CANDY BARS

As a kid, I loved those 100 Grand bars. Now I'm more tempted by Mounds. Mmm, dark chocolate and coconut. Yummy!

Since I was a kid I've loved Uno bars. Sometimes hard to find and often stale because I think I'm the only one who buys them anymore.

I don't think I could choose one, but my favorites are Baby Ruth, Almond Snickers, Payday and 100 Grand. I also love Heath Bars. They were my Mom's favorite and she always shared hers with me.

The hard-to-find Big Hunk is such a special treat that my honey got me a dozen for Christmas.

(Can you tell I have a really bad sweet tooth? :D)

I love Coffee Crisp bars, but I have such a hard time finding them since they're pretty much Canadian-only confectioneries. :( I usually get mine from my local Wegmans if I'm really craving one. (I dig Aeros, too, but Alan beat me to it.)

For my standard Found-in-Every-Vending-Machine-Ever candy bar, I go with Kit Kats (or Butterfinger!).

(The fact that it's an import here makes it all the more tantalizing.)

Man O Man! Y'all got some good ones there. Seems to be international on the sweet tooths as Americans love the Euro stuff and I know plenty of Euros who love the American stuff. Goes for Kiwi's Aussie Canuks and other wonderful nationalities out there. Honu and the Ritter sport, they have a coconut too thats fantastic. All that great Cadbury stuff we all love. Cap'n LH and the Payday snapple combo. The wifes fave is Payday with Coca Cola or Sweet Tea or a Zero bar with a grape Fanta. Hey we should write a book on pairing candy bars with beverages. Snickers and Coca Cola mmmmm. Dentist just love us one and all!

The long-extinct Marathon bar ("Marathon--lasts a good long time"):

There is still such thing as a Curly Wurly, which is supposed to be the same thing, but they aren't widely available in the US.
(That's John Wayne's son in the ad, I believe!)

Snickers and Coca Cola mmmmm.

As a youth, I used to work at a copy shop that was right next to a liquor store. There was actually a door in the back of each store that connected the two, so you could zip right over and buy something. Not booze, of course (hey, we were working!) but they had some grocery items too.

Anyway, one of the favorite combos we'd get was the Coke and Snickers.

We called it a "cosnick".

My favorite growin up in the 808 and availability in the 48 is somewhat zilch. It used to be more rectangular in shape.

I like Nutrageous and Payday, but I try to stay away from candy bars for the most part. I do eat a lot of granola bars, though.

Lol, yeah that advertisement annoys me. The angle is meant to be about it being a chunky chocolate bar. The brand image being as something burly builders might eat at work.

I'm in the UK so brand names might differ but I like Mars Bar, Milky Way, Twix, Drifter, Kit Kat, Double Decker (bit too sickly to eat often though) and Cadbury's Dairy Milk. Until recently I liked Cadbury's Fudge bars but the overload of sugar just makes me feel sick now and those are aimed at children which is a bit disturbing.
Not bars exactly but I also really enjoy Maltesers, Poppets and Smarties. Our Smarties are similar to M&Ms btw not the fizzy sweets with the same name in the US.



There is still such thing as a Curly Wurly, which is supposed to be the same thing, but they aren't widely available in the US. Yes there is. I used to buy them a lot.
We used to have something called a Marathon bar but it was renamed in the 80s I think, the same as the US product which is Snickers.

Double Decker (bit too sickly to eat often though) and Cadbury's Dairy Milk.

My friend sent me the above two bars too! And Aero (the minty one.) I'm saving them to savor on a rainy day. :o (Actually it's been like a monsoon the last couple of days in NY but I'm still saving them!)

I like the Smarties more than our M&Ms here in the states. The coating on the Smarties is crunchier and the chocolate doesn't seem as sweet.

I really like the Midnight Milky Way (?) the one with dark chocolate. Mmmmm. :drool:
