Snickers, Butterfinger, Caramello – Just a Few of My Favorite Candy Bars

Thanks to Mary at Giving Up On Perfect for her Coke post, I felt I could finally come clean and admit: I have an unending love for candy bars. Even though I typically eat healthy, wholesome, natural foods, I can’t say no to a candy bar. And try as I might to act like I don’t like them, given the choice, I’d eat one every day {hanging head in shame}. Here are my all time favorites:

1. Snickers – Perhaps the quintessential candy bar, Snickers embodies everything a candy bar should be.

2. Hershey’s bar – The bar that can do anything. Without Herhsey’s we wouldn’t have such joys as S’mores or Kisses.

3. Butterfinger – I ate a Butterfinger every day in my last two trimesters with Julia. It was worth every extra pound I gained.

4. 3 Musketeers – The “healthier” option with 30% less fat. A light and fluffy candy bar that is even better when frozen. Hmmm…

5. 100 Grand – I didn’t discover this candy bar until college. Whoa! What was I missing?!? Chocolate. Caramel. Crispy rice. Heaven.

6. Dove bar – I always feel a little luxurious when I eat a Dove bar. Like I should be eating it at a spa, not my pjs right before bedtime.

7. Crunch – I think Crunch bars are the forgotten candy bars. But when I scored a good deal on Crunch bars for Halloween candy, I renewed my love for this chocolatey-crunchy bar.

8. Milky Way – A bar of many choices. Milk chocolate. Dark chocolate. Caramel. Much like a 3 Musketeers, these bars make great frozen treats.

9. Caramello – Yummy chocolate caramel goodness. Not to mention it’s made by Cadbury, the makers of the Easter goodness known as Creme Eggs.

10. York Peppermint Pattie – While not a “bar”, I think the York deserves to stand in the candy bar category. A refreshing, delicious treat that makes this girl happy pretty much any time.

What are your favorite candy bars? Which ones do you think I should have added to my list?

My top 3 are definitely the Snickers, Milky Way, and 3 Musketeers. I’ve never tried one frozen. Sounds good.

I’m also a fan of Kit Kats and 5th Avenues.

Thanks for the link! I love candy bars, too. Dark Milky Way is delicious, and 100 Grand takes me back to middle school (in a good way). But my favorite is probably Twix – yum!

You’re welcome! I thought it was a brilliant idea, so I hope you don’t mind that I copied you. 😉 Hmmm… Twix is good.

Is this the same girl that gave up sugar for a month? *lol* I heart candy bars, too. I love Babe Ruth! But not as much as Snickers…

Haha, right?! I can pass on them, but it takes a lot of will power. I always want one, I just have to tell myself no.

I’m a candy bar lover too! I love snickers and reese’s the best, but I’m a sucker for milky way (especially milky way dark) and kit kat.

Mmm candy! Love snickers, also Twix, Pay Day, and KitKat.

Now I’m going to have to go get something sweet. Good thing Trader Joes has all their Christmas goodies out. My favorite so far-Minty Joe Joes. The Joe Joe cookies are sandwich cream cookies that now have peppermint filling-YUM!

Peppermint cookies. Oh my goodness. I LOVE peppermint. And cookies. Especially creme filled ones.

Yea I told Chris it feels dangerous having them in the house. I had a hard time stopping myself after 4 (in one sitting) yesterday haha.

Oh my goodnes- the mint Joe Joe’s are the absolute best cookie ever!!

Last night Chris asked me to go buy 20 boxes and he was serious. So, tomorrow I may head to Trader Joes to be the crazy person spending almost a week of our grocery budget on cookies….

Yum, my mouth is watering! Sadly, I finished off the Halloween candy a few nights ago. I definitely would add Reese’s peanut butter cups (okay, not technically a bar) and Twix to your list. 😉

i’m not really a chocolate girl until recently. yesterday i just tried Black and Green Organic Dark Chocolate OH.MY.GOODNESS.. it is amazing! the one with 85% coca in it.. so good! go try! 🙂

Definitely ANY variety of Reeses. Come on, PB and chocolate are the ULTIMATE couple 🙂 And I know M&Ms aren’t a bar either, but delicious! Maybe the category should be “favorite packaged candy” to be more inclusive, haha.
