I'm eating a dark chocolate Kit Kat and it's yummy. What's your favourite chocolate bar?

    American chocolate doesn't taste very nice. Don't know why, must be the sugar/cocoa content.

    I like Kit Kats and Twix's. Do you have them there?

    I probably like snickers the most. Or reeses! Man I'm hungry now. Is the objective of this thread to make all us "realjocks" fat off our fav. candy? lol.

    Snickers (in the UK they used to be called Marathon bars) are a bit too gloopy for me.

    What about Wispa's do u have them in the States. They're chocolate but with bubbles in them. Waste of good space if you ask me.

    Not a fan of chocolate, but when I do, it's dark chocolate, usually from Trader Joe's, I forget what the wrapper says but I think it's 70% cocoa and low on the glycemic index

    no wispas that I know of. Rocher are some almond rocha thing or something like that. See the commercials often around Michaelmas. icon_wink.gif We used to have Mars bars here but now I'm told they're only sold as such outside the country and that here they're referred to as Snickers w/ Almonds.

    Snickers with almonds are the best! I can go for a good chocolate anything though. I never can understand when people dont like chocolate. It's like not loving sex, or oxygen. It's just a part of being human. lol. just kidding.icon_razz.gif

    Once in a while I indulge in some Rapunzel Pure Organic Swiss Chocolate. I use Scharffen Berger cocoa powder in my post-workout protein shakes.

    I love all 3 of them, yet I can't recall the last time I bought any.
    I like good quality milk chocolate the best (60-66% cocoa), but these days I choose the darker varieties to get my chocolate fix because I never feel compelled to gorge myself on them as I did with those super-sweet, gooey confections that came from my gramma's purse. Until a few years ago, I'd often scoff my beloved Mars bars by the 4-pack. :-}

    That said, I'm aching to try a Deep-Fried Mars Bar – a trendy resto on the other street is famous for them – but I doubt that I could ever bring myself to order this diabolical concoction. I'll have to wait for someone else to order it and then just have a lil' taste.

    In Scotland you can buy deep-fried Mars bars from your local fish and chip shop. They'll deep fry anything in Scotland.

    Sorry, but Ferrero Rocher are bleurgh!!!!

    Do you lot have Yorkies? I like the fruit and nut ones. Delicieux monsieur.

    Dark chocolate pieces with fuji apple slices for dessert. (Or with almonds & dried blueberries.)

    For some reason, after diving in cold water, the only thing that I can keep down is a snickers bar. Otherwise, I hardly ever eat them, but if I do, they are kept frozen and eaten just slightly thawed.

    LOL! Those still exist?! We don't have those here and I haven't seen adverts for them in decades! I'm recalling my ma's Family Circle magazines with images of Fabergé shampoo (with beer & honey extracts!), Dorothy Hamill haircuts(!) and... those... whatchamacallits.

    I'll be sure to try one when I visit the States next time – hopefully my exclusive Vermont hairstylist will have a vending machine or something – as long as it doesn't taste anything like those Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Echhh...

    Redheadguy,

    It doesn't really have much to do as much with the sugar/cocoa content. The problem with American chocolate is that it has a lot of wax included in it.

    Beyond really good, dark Norwegian chocolate, my favorite chocolate bar so far is a Hawaiian confection that my friend brought me. Alas I can't remember what it was called but it was essentially a chocolate covered honeycomb. It was delicious.

    Actually, in the last year, some of the candy companies have been trying to cultivate a "chocolate snobbery" akin to Starbuck's profitable coffee snobbery. Unfortunately, their strategy seems to be to jack up the price of all dark chocolate products and repackage them in fancier foils. Same old stuff inside though.

    Mark me down for Kit Kats, too. Though I go for the standard milk chocolate variety. I have a multi pack in my desk drawer at works so I can have a couple of pieces to get me through the last couple of hours a day.

    I'm sure it's because I'm half-German, but I'm not big on American chocolate either. I'll eat it, but I prefer things with wafers in them like Kit Kats or sometimes Twix, though I'm not a fan of caramel. I do love chocolate and Hazelnut though!!!

    I also go for the original Gummi Bears that I've been eating since the 70s before they became big here in the States. I like the ones that are small and more chewey to the ones that are softer. Those just seem cheap to me and not as tasty.

    A real guilty pleasure is chocolate covered Gummi Bears.
