I don’t think I’ve ever had a variety of Reese Peanut Butter Cups that I’ve outright disliked. And there have definitely been a lot of them. There’s something about that oddly crumbly peanut butter combined with chocolate that I just can’t resist.
Which is to say that I definitely enjoyed Reese Fudge, but at [...]
Ah, Snickers: the old standby. It’s not the most exciting candy bar in the store, but it’s always there when you need it, and it’s always tasty. I like Snickers. I also like peanut butter. So, is this two great tastes that taste great together? Uh… kind of?

Not to be confused with the far superior Belgian chocolate truffle bar, Hershey’s Zero consists of nougat studded with tiny pieces of almonds and peanuts, topped with chewy caramel and enrobed in white chocolate. Only, it’s not really white chocolate – Hershey calls it “white fudge,” presumably because it doesn’t contain the requisite amount [...]
Though Hershey has seen fit to cheapen many of its bars by replacing milk chocolate with mockolate in an effort to cut costs, it’s nice to see that you can still find real milk chocolate in at least a few Hershey products.
Hershey’s Symphony is actually quite similar to a Heath bar, only with the proportions [...]
I’ve already reviewed the Cinnabon Cinnamon Caramel Pecan Cluster, which is made by the Standard Candy Company, the same people who make the Goo Goo Cluster. I kind of liked that one, though it wasn’t really something I’d ever want to eat again. The Goo Goo Cluster is the candy that’s allowed Standard [...]
Kit Kat Senses is clearly Nestle’s take on the Kinder Bueno: it looks pretty similar, and is made up of essentially the same elements (creamy hazelnut filling, crispy wafer and milk chocolate). I like Bueno and I like Kit Kat, so combining the two seemed like a sure thing.
The first thing I noticed [...]
Being a Canadian, it is hard-coded into me to enjoy anything with maple syrup in it. So when I saw this maple and roasted peanut “Bun”, it was pretty clear that I’d have to buy it (this was during a recent trip to the States – the Bun is, oddly enough, not available in [...]

Chunky isn’t sold in Canada and isn’t exactly a high-profile bar, so I hadn’t even heard of it when it was memorably referenced in an episode of Seinfeld (“I know the chunky that left these Chunkies!”). Of course, at that point I had to try it, and I do recall being somewhat disappointed in [...]
With some older candies, their continuing longevity is somewhat mystifying to me (the surprisingly unpleasant Necco Wafers being a prime example of this). However, in the case of Goldenberg’s Original Peanut Chews, I can definitely understand how they’ve managed to stick around all these years (since 1917, according to the packaging): they’re simple, satisfying [...]
Moose Munch is definitely unique – popcorn isn’t generally an ingredient you’ll find in all that many candy bars (in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had a candy bar with popcorn in it). But this bar certainly makes a persuasive argument for the inclusion of popcorn in chocolate.
