Mike says "I'm not sure which candy you're talking about. Since I'm always looking for Reese's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, maybe you're talking about them. I've had pretty good luck finding them at Target and K-Mart. And my local Walmart sells them in a 6-pack in the candy aisle."

On 12/01/09, Sarah from utah wrote: "why do travel over the world to eat chocolate?"

Mike says "Because I can. Just kidding. I don't travel all over the world to eat chocolate. While traveling, I look for chocolate to buy though. And I don't travel all over the world...just occasionally to Canada. Oh, and Mexico once. Any other oversea candies I bought at stores that have candy from around the world. I let them do the traveling. For more amazing facts, check out my FAQ."

Mike says "I assume you're refering to the latest Milky Way wrapper addition. Although I'm a little unclear on what you're getting at, "Try Me Chilled" is their suggestion that you, well, try the candy bar chilled. Personally, I don't like my candy bars cold, although some people like them cold, even frozen."

Mike says "Most candy companies post information like that right on their wrappers. For Reese's, the toll free number is 1-800-468-1714, which you can call Monday through Friday from 9-4. Their website is www.reeses.com."

We used to collect the little paper coins and when you have $5 worth, you could send them in and they would send you an entire cardbard box filled with peanut butter cups, worked better in the cooler months! I have never seen Boyer Peanut Butter cups in stores since adulthood. I like and still buy Mallo Cups and Smoothies but miss the actual Peanut Butter Cups. Great website!"

Mike says "Thanks for sharing, Mark! I honestly don't remember where I bought the Boyer Peanut Butter Cups."

BTW, apparently CVS is selling a one POUND package of Reese's, billing it as the World's Largest Reese's Peanut Butter Cup."

Mike says "Update....I found a 70's wrapper on the Candy Wrapper Archive and it was 1.6 ounces back then. And only 20 cents. Not sure about the 60's though."

Mike says "At this rate, you wouldn't think so. But I thought I'd never see Dark Chocolate Reese's again either. Although I'm having a hard time finding them again. But back to the Kit Kats. It's been a few years since they were out and other than making an appearence in those variety bags (mixed with regular and white chocolate bite size Kit Kats), they haven't come back. I don't know why. They were unbelievable good and with dark chocolate getting good press, I don't know why they don't come back."

On 10/11/09, Don from Green Valley, AZ, wrote: "I am working on a project that involves dating a photograph based on a Baby Ruth candy bar wrapper that is visible in the photo, and so far have not had much luck finding any info that would help me. I think the photo dates from around 1949 to 1953. The wrapper design in the photo seems to be unusual enough for me to believe it could be dated based on the design. I have checked on line for all the Baby Ruth ads that I could find but it seems they used a generic drawing for most of their ads, not real pictures. Since you are a collector of candy wrappers I was hoping that you might be able to suggest additional areas of research."

Mike says "I emailed Don and said I didn't have any ideas. I said I'd post his comment to see if anybody can help. Can you? Thanks!"

Mike says "No, the Aero bars aren't like Nestle Crunch bars. Aero bars are 'filled' with air bubbles and Nestle Crunch bars are of course filled with rice crispies. The air bubbles give the Aero bars a bit of a lighter taste and feel. They're pretty good...I especially like the Aero mint bars. But don't bother looking for them in the US. Unless you find them in a specialty store, they're not sold in the US. However, accroding to their Wikipedia page, they are available at Giant Eagle, Super Stop and Shop, Wegman's, and some Kroger stores. They can also be found in the world foods section of some Meijers."

On 10/04/09, Kira from Citra, Florida, wrote: "Hey now, you might not know anyone that eats or likes Zero Candy Bars. I can assure you though they are my favorite. The only problem is they don't really sell them in grocery stores. They've been around since the 1920s, but for some reason they can only be found in certain gas stations/jiffy stores so that might be why they aren't as popular as things you find in a checkout line at grocers. I love them so much in fact, whenever I have a craving I'll drive down to a gas station just to get one. I don't do that for any other candy bar."

Mike says "I don't know about where you live, but the King Size Zero bars are available at my local Wal Mart. I know they're hard to find and I'm surprised they carry them. I don't know if it's all Wal Mart though."

My friends all laugh at me :-) Anyway, I was just wondering what you mean when you say "this wrapper was bought in June 2009" (or whatever the date may be)? Is there a significance about the year on the wrapper that I don't know about or something??"

Mike says "I put the dates in my comments because it annoys me when people don't date things. It's just to show when it was bought so you can see how wrapper change over time. Or, say you never knew M&M's were black and white during a contest. Click on the wrapper and you can see the wrapper came out around December, 2003. Wow. Almost 6 years ago? How long have I been doing this? Anyway, the earlier wrappers don't have dates because I didn't think about it until later."

Mike says "I'm assuming it's no longer available. It's not listed on Hershey's Canadain web site. I found a dedicated Hershey's Sidekick site from Hershey, but it's blank. If you've been looking for 2 years and can't find it, it's probably gone. Why? It's almost always sales not meeting expectations. Sorry."

Mike says "It wierd...I'll go months and months without someone mentioning a candy bar, then I'll get multiple mentions in a short period of time (notice the two Ice Cube comments next). I'm pretty sure you're talking about the "Cookies &" series...Cookies & Snickers and Cookies & M&Ms. While I didn't get the Cookies & Twix bar that you mentioned, they also had Cookies & Milky Way. They were good, but they are no longer available."

I'm disinclined to buy a tub by mail and would love to find them locally. On your site, numerous stores are offered that may carry them but I don't think any are available here in Phoenix, including Cracker Barrel. If anyone has a lead on retailers that stock them, I'd love to hear about it!"

Mike says "I assume you already checked, but there's no date on the wrapper? I thought most wrappers had a date on them somewhere, but maybe they didn't do that when this wrapper was around. I can't remember how much they were when I was a kid. But I noticed you referred to them as Tandy Kakes. Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes first came out as Tandy Kakes in the 1930's and I still get confused and sometimes call them the wrong name. I'm not sure when they changed the name, but maybe you can contact Tastykake to see if they know."

So I googled to see if they had gotten smaller, and sure enough, your findings from '04 showed they went from 1.65 oz for two to 1.55 oz. The one I ate today was .55 oz, meaning that for two it would be 1.10 oz...I couldn't believe it. My how I miss my peanut butter and chocolate in full size."

Mike says "I fear this subject will be coming up forever. I really should update the "Reese's is smaller" page (which I'm adding to my To Do For The Website list right now!). The .55 ounce Reese's you had was the "Fun" size or whatever they call it. The individually wrapped cups that come in a package of 6 or 8 (I forget) or that come in a bag. They are not the ones that come from the 'regular' package that has 2 full size cups. Those are still 1.55 ounce for the two of them."

I think the problem is that Munchos are sometimes hard to find. I wonder how much of a following they have (I love them). If they don't have a strong following, I doubt they will expand the product line. Usually, only the strong brands get expanded (like Doritos)."

As far as the cook book, that's a great idea! But I don't have the skills to put such a book together. Maybe someone who does will see this and get writing! I did find a website with a couple candy bar recipes, but no PB Max."

Mike says "I tried to find a timeline on Snickers wrappers, but couldn't find one. I'm not sure when they switched over. I always remembered the colors they have today.

I think that would have been neat to see the Forever Yours wrapper in place of the Milky Way Midnight, but you're talking about two different names for the same product. When they brought back Forever Yours, they decided Milky Way Midnight was the way to go as far as a name. Mainly, I'm sure, to capitalize on the Milky Way name. Coming out with the Forever Yours wrapper now (even as a promotional thing) would just confuse people. Especially since, as you note, not too many people remember Forever Yours. (BTW, I'm over 40 and don't remember them)."

The "Classic" two-pack is a .75 oz. cup, the "King Size" four-pack is a .70 oz. cup and the "Lunch" eight-pack is a .55 oz. cup." Of course, it doesn't mention what size they used to be and we know the regular cups have shrunk since I have the old wrapper. But I don't know if the snack size was ever the same size as the regular cup as I never bought them on a regular basis. I tried to do some research online to see if I could find what size the snack size Reese's used to be, but I couldn't find anything. I just double checked the brand new Reese's wrapper and the regular two-cup Reese's packages are still .75 ounces each."

We use your site as a reference and for inspiration. I do have a question, though. How do you open up the wrappers without tearing them? Is there a secret? Everytime I try it, I tear them. No matter how slowly and carefully I do it! Thanks, and keep on scanning those wrappers!"

Mike says "I love this question! When I first started the site, wrappers were much easier to open. They must have changed something...either they're thinner or different material because it's harder now. First thing I do is buy 3 or 4 of the same wrapper...just in case! If it's your average candy wrapper...basically rectangular...I'll try to pull apart one end at the seam. Sometimes, I'll use the candy bar itself as leverage, trying to get at least a small opening going right where the back seam meets the end. Kinda like opening a bag of potato chips or something. Sometimes I try both ends because it seems one end is usually easier than the other. Then I carefully open one end completely. This is usually where I mess up the most.

After the one end is open, I work on the back, separating right along the back seam. This either goes great or I rip it beyond repair. Then, when you get to the other end, it's a lot easier to open that seam. Lastly, after I scan the wrapper, I crop out any ends that are too embarrassing to show. Most wrappers have some damage and you have to go slow. Oh, and make sure they're not cold. Seems like it's harder when the wrapper is cold (like right out of the fridge). I still remember the wrapper that gave me the most trouble...the Lion from the UK, although this 5th Avenue actually looks worse."

Am I crazy, didn't they exist?"

It's almost like each wrapper takes you back to a different place and time to when you first ate each one and what you were doing back then. However, I do have a question for you. My wife and I, who grew up in two totally different parts of the United States (California/Missouri), seem to recall that Peanut-Butter Twix originally came in a yellow wrapper, before the red wrapper. Can you confirm this bit of information? Again many thanks for the website and best wishes in it's success."

Mike says "You are correct. This question pops up from time to time. Yes, Peanut Butter Twix was originally in a yellow wrapper years before. They went away and came back in the red wrapper, claiming they were 'new', but we knew better. BTW, the Peanut Butter Twix was replaced by the Twix PB, featuring a chocolate cookie. Many, including me, don't like it as much as the original Peanut Butter Twix."

I base that on looking at various Reese's wrappers I have oline. So, 2.1 ounces for 3 is about right. We're supposed to go to Wal Mart today. I'll double check the sizes, if I remember.

I believe Cadbury made these as I had found them quite some time ago still in Ireland but a check of the web now shows nothing on them. Also, I remember Breakaway....it was one of my favorite chocolate bars and they took it away...just like rum and butter. You are right. The breakaway bar did have a dark label and it was wafers chocolate and caramel. I don't know if this helps but I have emailed the company and maybe you could too. I thought Cadbury made it?

There was a general store next to the school and about once a week, my dad would give me a nickel for an Abba Zabba bar. The label then was pretty racist as I am aware of it now. It showed the old caricature of two African natives, thick lipped and and big eyes with a tall stacks of hair with a bone through the hair. I am glad they quit that label, but sad that the candy texture isn't as good. We used to take a strip and and streetch it out as far as we could reach, until the peanut butter started leaking, then roll it up and chomp away. Heavenly stuff! I am a writer now and recently featured the Abba Zabba in an old memoir."

Roughly, the larger size candy bars are 1.5 times bigger than the regular size. So getting three Take 5 pieces in the King Size is actually right along those lines. However, it does appear Reese's gives you more in their King size peanut butter cups.

OK, one, I've done too much research on this! And two, I'm intrigued by the Reese's. To make sure I am comparing the most recent sizes, I'm going to stop and look at some Reese's wrappers today because I was planning a candy run anyway!"

However, since its popularity increased (no doubt thanks to your website) they have come out with their own brand of this light, healthy alternative cheese puff. Keeping with the Caribbean flavor, it's called "Unburied Treasure - White Cheddar Corn Puffs", and it less expensive than Pirate's Booty. Just in case you... *gulp* ... venture outside the candy aisle. BTW, Trader Joe's also has some very tasty organic (and non-organic) chocolate bars made with all natural, pure ingredients - unadulterated as I like to put it. So I guess it's ok to eat more of it. :-D"

Mike says "Cool! Thanks for the tips! Laurie's the big Pirate's Booty eater in the house (actually, I think she likes the cannon balls more now) and she works right down the street from a Trader Joe's. I'll let her know!"

But seriously, PB Max is one of the most asked about candy bars on this site. They were good and I think it would be awesome if they brought them back. Even as a Limited Edition."

Mike says "Good luck with the Rally bars. I only saw them the one time...they are VERY hard to find in the US. And yes, Chunky is hard to find as well. I did find mine at Target, but I don't know if they still sell them. Target used to be a good place to get the Limited Edition bars and some of the "I didn't know they still made them" candies (like Chuckles. They were sold in the back of the store with the bagged and "movie" candy (not up front by the registers with the regular candy). But they must have decided not to sell them anymore because now I go there and they never have the Limited Edition bars."

I hope it is here for good. I too did not like this, but i do not like many of the energy bars. Have you seen the Snickers Charged bars? I saw them at 7-11 and Quik-Cheks here in NJ. They are candy Snickers with a shot of caffeine and other stuff for a rush. Tastes like a regular Snickers. I think it is dangerous because kids should not have access to things with hidden caffeine."

Mike says "I didn't really like the Elvis Reese's that much, but I do like the Reese's Crispy Crunchy bar a lot. I have tried the Snickers Charged (wrapper coming soon) and I don't know if it was psychological or not, but I did get slightly jittery...I had it mid afternoon at work.

Mike says "Hmmm. I'm not sure of the best way to sell one. I suppose eBay is always a good option. Maybe Craig's List (which I know nothing about)? I know other old wrappers have been on eBay and I can only assume a candy wrapper collector would check out eBay from time to time. Maybe do a Google search for collectors? As far as the nickel question, according to Wikipedia, there was a nickel in each payday for about 5 years back in the 80's. I don't remember that. Not sure if they were uncirculated or not."

Mike says "Took me a minute to realize you were talking about the Snickers Marathon Energy Bar. You are correct...the Marathon from our childhood was much different. It was lattice (or braided) shaped, as you can see from this advertisement from the 70's. Mars no longer makes Marathons, but I'm told the Curly Wurly (from England) is a pretty good substitute. Head to Old Time Candy Company and do a search on Curly to see what I mean. And to further confuse things, the Snickers Bar used to be called Marathon in England. Got all that?"

I've heard some sites still have the picture of the 'old' Peanut Butter Twix, but they are actually selling the new Twix PB...whether they don't know the change, forgot to update the pictures, whatever. Just make sure you are really getting the Peanut Butter Twix..if you can find them. Other options include warehouse stores like Costco or Sam's...they might have some in stock, but I doubt it. I'm with you...the Peanut Butter Twix was sooooo much better than the Twix PB."

Here in England Snickers was always called Marathon up until the name change to snickers a number of years back (probably at least 10). It wasn't an energy bar - it was a normal Snickers bar, but it was called Marathon. Not sure why, probably nostalgia, but I would love them to revert back to Marathon (even if it was only here in England!). We've also got Mr.T labelled Snickers bars at the moment, as he's doing a big ad campaign for them (www.getsomenuts.tv)"

Im currently trying to learn how to start a blog to showcase them, but wanted to see what was already out there first. Yours is REALLY impressive, i must say- we could have fun comparing collections. Im also an M&M junkie- new wrappers rock my world. Look out now for brand new Indiana Jones promo bags , one of which is a new flavor- Crispy Mint. Got em at Walgreens. And have you noticed all the diff holiday M&M packaging done by Target & Walmart? I need a blog to showcase all those too. Really cool all th diff designs.

I also have some book recommendations- any candy lover/collector should ck these out- all are available at Amazon (some are out of print but avail used there):
THE GREAT AMERICAN CANDY BAR BOOK by Ray Broekel
THE CHOCOLATE CHRONICLES by Ray Broekel
SWEET TALK by Nicholas Whittaker
CHOCOLATE MEMORIBILIA by Shiffer Books for Collectors

So thanx for all the great website and look forward to seeing more wrappers- and hopefully some more book reviews!

As this site brings together a community of candy-lovin folks, Id like to offer good news to Mike & some other commentors who are looking for some long lost wrappers- i may have them! I will start going thru my vast collection (almost 20 yrs old) and here is what I think I may have (if so I will send to mike for a post)
TRIPLE DECKER BAR
YELLOW WRAPPER P. BUTTER TWIX
any more you need? pls ask- I like the hunt!

Also a comment about Reese's Whip - I agree its taste weird and not so good- the idea from Reeses was a lower fat version of the beloved Reeses flavor- aimed at dieters and (mostly) women looking for a lower fat treat. The "peanut butter flavor nougat" says it all - nougat is mostly just whipped sugar and flavoring, much lower fat than real peanut butter- and the choc is thinner too. P Butter & choc is one of the most fattening combos to eat, but also the MOST popular candy bar in the US (besides Snickers)- so this is their attempt to please all people all the time. Unfortunately the regular and whip really taste NOTHING alike, so its a bust. Bummer."

Mike says "Wow! Thanks for the comments! I know I'm behind in my candy book reading, but when I get a chance, I'll check out some of the ones you mentioned. I do have the Indiana Jones wrappers and the Crispy Mint...just haven't opened them yet. And you should really start a blog...it's fun getting great comments from people!"

I have been trying to find Clark and O Henry candy bars. I know you mentioned that you aren't a major fan of O Henry bars (on your wrapper page) and I couldn't find a Clark wrapper, but where do you personally buy (or see) O Henry and Clark candy bars? One store in the neighboring town had O Henry bars a few months ago, but now I can't find them. I don't think I have ever seen a Clark's bar in my hometown or the neighboring town that had O Henry bars. Any information you have on it could really help me. In addition I saw that you had an Elvis Reese's candy wrapper on your site. My sister-in-law saw the candy once, but only once. My brother, sister-in-law, and I tried to find one for my Mom (she is a huge Elvis fan), but never did. Since the candy is to commemorate the anniversary of his death in August it is probably safe to say that we will not be able to find one now, right? Well, at least I can show her the wrapper (thanks to your site). Anyways, thank you very much for any help you can give me about the Clark and O Henry bars! Nice talking (writing) to you!"

Mike says "You are right that Clark bars and Oh Henry bars are not the easiest to find. BTW, Clark bars are not on my site because I don't really like them that much. Living in Pittsburgh, I do believe I see Clark bars more often than others as Clark bars got their start here in Pittsburgh and are a Pittsburgh tradition. You can read about it here. I think because of their ties to Pittsburgh, I can even buy Clark bars by the box at the local Sam's Club. So, that is an option...check out your local Sam's Club, Costco, or other warehouse stores. Also, my sponsor Old Time Candy Company sells both Clark bars and Oh Henrys.

As far as the Elvis Reese's, yeah, they might be harder to find now that it's November and they were only out for a limited time. But you can try dollar stores. Sometimes they have stock that didn't sell at other stores and you might find some."

Mike says "It's said, but true. I got a couple comments like yours and I wrote the Twix people. Here's their response:

Thanks for contacting us about TWIX PB COOKIE BARS. In the spring of 2007, the TWIX PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE BAR was relaunched and the name changed to TWIX PB. TWIX PB features a more intense peanut butter hit. More peanut butter plus the new, delicious, "jet black" chocolate cookie create a far superior combination of peanut butter and chocolate.

Because we are reviewing our marketing strategy, TWIX PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE BAR is unavailable at this time. Your comments will be shared with our Marketing Staff. The product cannot be purchased via the Internet nor directly from us.

I'm none too happy about this as I do like the 'original' Peanut Butter Twix better than the new Twix PB. If you agree, I urge you to call Twix at 1-800-551-9982 and let them know."

In the late 1950's they had a 10 bar which was nearly 2 times as other candy bars at the time. (Same with Butterfinger) I often bought a Baby Ruth not only because I liked the tast but also because it lasted a long time - it was too big to eat all at once! Regarding someone asking about "Powerhouse" candy bars of the '60's, I'm not sure when they were discontinued but they were made by Walter Johnson Candy Chicago IL (at least in the '40's).

Mike says "Wow...good question and one that isn't covered in my FAQ page. Let's see. I think it's safe to assume that I've averaged one candy bar a day since, say, turning 20. That's when I probably started working a regular job and making my own money outside those teen jobs most people get. And I would further assume that I averaged 3 candy bars a week (at least) from, say, age 14 to 20, when I was working those teen jobs. And let's just say I averaged 2 a week from age 10 to 14. I think these are underestimates, but we'll go with them. So, from 10 to 14, I had 416 candy bars. From 14 to 20, I had 936 more. And from age 20 to my last birthday, add in another 7,665...give or take. For a grand total of 9,017. Yeah, that sounds about right."

Needles to say we devoured all 5 packs of them that night. so i was gonna go to Walmart the day after easter and buy WHOLE load of them for cheap to give to my friend. Well they were all out so now i'm looking online to get bunch and thats when i found you. Let me know how you survive during the off season!"

Mike says "I've also wondered why they were so much better than 'normal' Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Then someone told me it's because there's more peanut butter in the eggs. AH HA! You could try the Reese's Big Cups...not exactly the same, but more peanut butter than a regular Reese's."

It's been so long since I've tasted one that I couldn't recall that it was actually a peanut chew. They thought I was nuts! Soooo I started a search on yahoo and soon came to you!

Maybe I should start the business, I am positive that Reese Sticks would be a super big hit in Japan. When I had Reese Sticks for the first time was back in 1997. I lived in Wisconsin and saw it at a store. I bought it soon and ate it and I really loved it. It's different than Kitt-Katt, Reese Sticks is not that strong, so I love it the best. Since then, I only went to the usa a couple of times for holiday and bought a lot of 10 stick packs and brought them back with me each time, or asked my friend to send some for Christmas. Because I have never seen anywhere in Japan. I looked for everywhere. I haven't had Reese Sticks over 2 years now, I am sad. :( I hope we will import Reese Sticks someday. sigh."

I asked someone about it and they told me it was manufactured in the UK. I paid almost 2 bucks for it and went on my way. When I got back to the hotel room I was drinking a cold glass of soda with ice and I decided to break open my first Bounty bar. I swear it is like heroin. There is something in this chocolate that makes me ravenous. LOL. I know that sound's funny but it is sweet and makes me want more. I have eaten 3 bars in one sitting. That is a lot. Or at least I think so! It is without question my favorite to this day! And Almond Joy has nothing on it. Almond Joy is bland and mushy! Yech! ALL I CAN SAY! IS BOUNTY, BOUNTY, BOUNTY! If you have not had one your missing it! I do have one question. It is superior to Almond Joy so why not stir up some competition?"

Because, if the O Henry or Baby Ruth was better I would have ate those. Most importantly, my father had good taste! I think the difference between, O Henry and Rally was that the Rally had more peanuts. My father loved peanuts. Furthermore, I do not really recall what the Rally candy wrapper looked like. The wrapper that you show on this website of the Rally (from Korea), is that the wrapper that the U.S. used too. I wish they still had the Rally around."

Three or four of us would go in and just one of us would buy a Nut Milk Bar and we'd all walk out with a pack of peanut butter cups or Hershey Bars.

Mike says "I really need to get that FAQ written!! First off, I'll be 41 next month. I don't need an excuse to eat candy. I'm a big boy now! But seriously, back when I started this page, there weren't too many candy wrapper pages out there. I thought it would be neat to start scanning and posting wrappers with my comments. I really didn't think people would find it too interesting. But then people started sending me emails. So I added the comments section and an easier way to send me a comment.

There are other reasons. I've always been interested in how companies try to get you to buy stuff using colors, etc. I noticed slight changes in some wrappers and thought it would be neat to 'document' them. This was right before the 'limited edition' candies started to hit the shelves. Now it's fun to try and find new candies to post on the web site.

To my surpise, I've had a lot of people write me and thank me for the page. A lot of teachers use my page for classes. Others have written saying they use the wrappers to see what ingredients are used and/or fat and calorie content. How long can it go on? They're always putting out new candy bars and changing the wrappers of the old ones. It could go on forver!"

In Europe in the 1970's the Mars bar was nearly exactly like the snickers with almonds today. The one's from the 60's were very rich and buttery."

Mike says "It's tricky when talking about Mars bars. There is the Mars bars from the US that had almonds (not made anymore) and the Mars bar everywhere else, which is similar to a Milky Way bar. The M&M/Mars company discontinued the US Mars bar a few years ago and started distributing the Snickers w/Almonds in its place."

Mike says "Not a really big fan of Snow Caps or Sour Patch Kids and since I eat every candy wrapper you see on the site, I probably won't be adding them anytime soon. I do love Swedish Fish, so maybe you'll see them one day! And there are Dark Chocolate Raisinettes out now. I did buy them and the wrapper will be added during the next wrapper update (whenever that will be)."

What we have here is sweet salty mess fused together by some sort of caramel. Have a class of water near by if you consume one of these "bad boys". The salt content is off the hook."

Mike says "Obviously, anything with peanuts is going to be higher in sodium since they salt the peanuts. But Payday really isn't that bad when compared to other bars, especially ones with peanuts. Payday has 8% of your recommended amount of sodium for the day. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups have 5%, Snickers with 6%. Twix (I'm guessing because of the cookie part) comes in at 5% as well. Even Milky Way has 4%. So, I don't think 8% is that bad considering it has so many peanuts. BTW, Nestle Crunch has 1% and York Peppermint Patties has 0% (although there is a trace amount)."

I have asked the M&M people thru their website and will let you know what they say. BTW, check out their website if you want to see the color breakdown of each bag of M&Ms."

UPDATE!! I received an answer from the M&M people:
In response to your email regarding M&M'S CHOCOLATE CANDIES. The M&M'S CHOCOLATE CANDIES Global Color Vote has ended. More than 10 million people in 200 countries voted to add PURPLE to the blend of M&M'S CHOCOLATE CANDIES. Chocolate lovers everywhere rallied in support of their color preferences in the M&M'S Global Color Vote. After months of sampling the candidates in specially marked bags, the world chose purple -- with 41% of the vote. Aqua garnered a respectable 37% while pink managed a meager 19%. In August 2002, purple was added to the current blend of red, yellow, orange, green, blue and brown for a limited time.

So, there you go. Even though I think everybody (including me) thought they were going to be a new permanent color, they weren't.

The M&M type Smarties are Canadian and probably the only place you'll find them is in a store that has food from Canada (or possibly a store near the Canadian border)."

I scan wrappers because I like junkfood. I started the page half as a joke, but then people started stopping by the web site and leaving me comments. The more I added, the more comments I got. I'm even mentioned in the back of the Steve Almond book I mention at the top of the page. Then, I started noticing slight (and some not-so-slight) changes in some wrappers. I've always been interested in how companies get you to buy their product, so these changes interested me. I thought it'd be neat to start an online collection so you can see the changes. These are just a couple of the reasons why. In case you're curious, no, I don't keep the wrappers once I scan them."

Aero comes in Milk Chocolate and Peppermint flavours mostly, but other flavours have come and gone over the years - Orange, Strawberry, Cappuccino, Coffee, Lemon & Lime, and there may have been a dark version if I remember correctly. Different sizes have also been tried - fun size, chunky size and "family" bars."

Mike says "From what I heard from other people, no, you didn't get a bum bag. I think they're all like that. That's one reason why I never bought a bag of them."

Seeing that you seem to have a lot of Canadian candy, I thought you might know what I am talking about. I have seen marshmallow cones and also maple cones, but the best are the honey ones, have you ever seen these? I live near Boston MA now; Let me know if you know if you know what these are called.

But it's the chocolate that most kids grow up on, and the emotional aspect of your childhood favorite cannot be overlooked.

I seem to remember a big deal being made about the white part being on the outside, which made it unique among candy bars. Also does anyone remember Bar None, or the Marathon Bar? An ex of mine loved Bar None, and I haven't seen a Marathon Bar or Marathon Bar commercial (It lasts a long long time...) since the 70's."

Mike says "For what it's worth, my local Wal Mart has Zero bars. Only the King Size ones, though. Bar None was awesome, but is no longer made.

Mike says "Well, according to the Nestle web site, here's the story: The "Oh Henry" name has nothing to do with Hamerin' Hank the baseball player or O. Henry the author. This Henry was the name of a young man who used to come to the Williamson Candy Store in Chicago where chocolate was being made and sold. Henry would kid around with the young ladies who made the candy. After awhile, they began asking Henry to do little jobs and favors. "Oh Henry, do this" or "Oh Henry, will you get me that?" Later that year (1921) "Oh Henry" became the name of the new candy bar."

"If you don't want to believe that, here's an entry from Wikipedia: This story is cute, but not the true story of the Oh Henry candy bar. The candy bar was invented by a man named Tom Henry of Arkansas City, Kansas. Tom Henry ran a candy company called the Peerless candy factory, and in 1919 he started making the Tom Henry candy bar. He sold the candy bar to Curtis Candy Company in 1920 where they later changed the name to "Oh Henry"."

Mike says "Yes, we have Cadbury here in the US. Sorta. See, Cadbury has licensed Hershey to make and distribute Cadbury candy bars (much like Nestle does with Kit Kats in the US). The reason behind this was it was easier to get Cadbury candy bars in stores by letting Hershey make the chocolate rather than fighting for the shelf space. It's VERY hard to get candy bars into stores. Cadbury takes advantage of the distribution lines already set up by Hershey. But please understand...it is Cadbury chocolate, not Hershey chocolate, in Cadbury products in the US. BTW, Caramello bars are one of my favorites."

I used to chomp these things after a work out in my local leisure centre, but they were merely Snickers bars called Marathon. I presume because of Mars sponsorship of the London marathon for many years. In fact Snickers was not a word familiar to me, and when the name was changed I first of all thought it was Knickers! The terrible advert with a French woman, saying Snee-kerghhs. To be honest, we are funny as a race, but I prefered the name Marathon, and had hoped the name would resurface. I wonder if I can order them over the net?"

Mike says "As I understand it, Snickers was called Marathon in the UK (while being sold as Snickers in the US). In 1990, Mars decided to rename the Marathon to Snickers to keep the same name worldwide. For a time, both Marathon and Snickers appeared on the label. Now, as you mentioned, the Snickers Marathon is an energy bar which came out in 2004."

Mike says "Well, I don't know about the whole FDA blocking Canadian candy bars and all that. A good portion of the Canadian bars were bought at a candy store in Pittsbrugh that sells candy from around the world. As far as me not liking many of the candy on my page, that comes as a surprise to me. I'm not going to take the time to go thru every page to see what I said about each and every candy bar, thou. Perhaps I should mention that if I say a candy bar is "ok", it means it's ok. I don't love it, I don't hate it. I probably wouldn't get it again because I have too many favorites that I'd rather buy than waste my money on a candy bar that (in my opinion) is just ok."

Somebody's got to do it."

Inside the U.S. Kit Kat is a Hersey's product. Hersey's had a long term contract to make and distribute Kit Kat in the U.S. from Kit Kat's original owners Roundtree Macintosh. When Nestle bought Roundtree the contract stayed in force. So every Kit Kat sold in the U.S. has Hersey's chocolate and all the rest in the world have Nestle's chocolate. In Japan there are Orange and Banana Kit Kat (Nestle also). I have not tasted one but I have seen the wrappers. You have a colorful web site with alot of content and I like it.

That was when the M&M's where trying to find their colors and they had cool commercials too. I think the M&M/Mars company should make the small packs of M&M's in mint and sell them year-round.

Mike says "Just wanted to let everybody know that I was in Sam's Club yesterday (11/7/05) and they had boxes of Mint Kit Kats and Hershey's Cookies 'n' Mint (36 bars to a box). I bought a box of the Mint Kit Kats and will have the wrapper up after my next wrapper update. They are the standard 4-finger bar size. I put the Hershey's Cookies 'n' Mint on my Christmas list. Both say limited edition, so if you see them, stock up!!

I too scoffed when they reintroduced them a few years ago as "new" because I was very annoyed when they got discontinued. They were new back in the late 1980s, and they were in a YELLOW wrapper. Remeber a candy bar called "Bar None"? I remember those were really good. Also, remember when plain M&M's had tan colored pieces? The peanut ones never had tan pieces. And there were never red or blue ones either (everyone thought red food coloring caused cancer at the time). There just doesn't seem to be much quality chocolate in the US anymore. There's much better variety and quality in just about any other country. In Europe you can get Orange-Chocolate KitKats, and Mint-Chocolate KitKats. My search to order these on the Internet for a reasonable price continues."

Mike says "Good old Red Dye #2. While doing a quick search, I found an interesting couple of paragraphs on red foods and red dye #2.

I think the dark brown M&Ms were the last to be eaten. Or it could have been the other way around. And I also remeber Bar None...good stuff."

As candy bar makers experiment with limited editions today I wonder if that wasn`t the case with this one. It would have been in the 1950`s and I lived in WVa. I wrote to York but got no reply.

I also purchased a Passion Fruit Almond Joy Bar. They aren't as good as the key lime. I kind of felt like I was eating potpourri.

Mike says "I have looked for both the Key Lime and Passion Fruit Almond Joys and have found neither. A reason why Hershey doesn't have them on their site is because they might be test marketing them. A company will pick a couple of markets across the country and try out a product to see how it sells. Could be that they are testing these bars in Fredericksburg (among other places). Another possible reason...big companies are sometimes slow at updating their web sites when it comes to new products.

Sometimes they take a little longer to filter down to gas stations, etc (but other times you'll see the limited editions there first...hard to figure). I lived in a semi-small town before, so I know what you mean, Bonnie. So, the next time you drive to "the big city", look for them.

It first came out in the early-mid-1980's. It had two fingers, like a Twix, but it was wafers and caramel not cookies and caramel. My friends and I used to love it, but it disappeared by the 90's. It had a brown wrapper, sorta like Snickers. Anyway, since you seem to have such a great knowledge and familiarity with candy bars, I thought you might be able to share in my recollection? Great site, I like it!"

Mike says "My collection isn't too old, so, no Breakaway wrapper. I don't remember it, but it looks like Nestle sells something called Breakway in England. Looks like it's a chocolate covered biscuit. I got frustrated trying to find a decent web site that had a description of it. I don't know if it's the same thing you're talking about. You mentioned caramel and I didn't see anything that said the Nestle Breakaway came with caramel.

Mike says "I'm gonna assume you are talking about Skor from Hershey. Interesting story about Skor and Heath. Both are made by Hershey and both are English toffee covered in chocolate. So why does one company make two bars that are basically the same exact thing? Heath Brothers Confectionary made Heath bars until Leaf bought them out. Hershey eventually aquired Leaf and decided to discontinue one of the bars (forget which one) since they are the same thing. Fans of the discontinued bar complained enough that Hershey brought it back. Now we have two bars that are the same and made by the same company. But I know if you favor one over the other, you will swear there is a big difference in the two.

With all the dark chocolate stuff coming out, and the amount of positive feedback I've received about them here, I'm amazed that Hershey hasn't put them back on the market for another run.

Not liquid, but not a hard solid either. It's hard for me to explain. But they are very good (in my opinion).

It had a nice sugary mouth feel, as well, with a white chocolate exterior and a nutty confectionary filling. I could not get enough Zero when I was that age, although oddly, they are no longer a favorite of mine. Today it seems a little too sweet, and not chocolate which I prefer."

In Canada and most of the world, Mars bars are sold in a black wrapper, and are a bit like an American Milky Way but thicker (in other words, just nougat, caramel and chocolate; NO ALMONDS). Strangely enough, both Mars and Milky Way bars are manufactured at the Effem plant north of Toronto, although most of the Milky Ways are shipped to the States for sale--they aren't readily available here. So to recap: Mars bars do not have almonds. And now, I guess that Mars bars in the US have been changed to Snickers with almonds, that's consistent across the globe. Oh, and we can now get Caramilk Maple bars here. A whole bunch of bars have added maple flavour including Coffee Crisp and Oh Henry."

We don't get them around here where I live very often. (It's probably a good thing, because I would be too tempted to buy & eat them all the time!) We got:
1 Box of Peanut butter Kandy Kakes
1 Box of Butter Cream Iced Creme Filled Chocolate Cupcakes
1 Box of Jelly Krimpets
A few Tasty-Klair Pies (these are so delish, but so fattening!)
Not to mention Herr's Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips (my all time fave)Have you ever tried these? (you probably have since you used to live in NJ)and if so, do you like them? I am all set with junk food for a while! :>) Take care, Mike!"

Mike says "Ann...will you marry me?? Seriously, thou, your comments brought back memories of good old NJ. If you wandered around other sections of my web site, you probably saw I used to live in North Wildwood...not too far from Somers Point. And I actually stayed in Ocean City one winter. No need to tell me about Tasty Klair pies...they are my favorite Tasty Kake pie!! I almost had a heart attack when I walked into my favorite dollar store here in Pittsburgh and they actually had Tasty Klair pies!!!!! Two for $1!! I just bought two since, as you mentioned, they are quite bad for you. Wrapper will be posted one of these days. And Herr's BBQ chips are also a favorite. Laurie and I went home to NJ for Memorial Day weekend and the trip included a stop at Wawa for a cheese hoagie with Herr's BBQ chips and a Mountain Dew. It's tradition."

I guess people assume you eat loads of candy all day long without stopping to think that one can be moderate about consuming such things. Like, I'm thin but when people see me eating something "fattening" they always say, boy you sure are lucky you can eat that and not gain weight. But if I ate too many I wouldn't continue to be thin. Anyway, totally off-topic. So I will make a candy comment about Kit Kat bites: I recently tried a small pak and ate the entire thing in about a minute flat. They're dangerous!"

On 4/07/05, Chris from Philadelphia wrote: "You wrote about how Nestle's Chunky bars used to have different varieties- I remember this as well. I have a faint recollection of a gold Chunky wrapper (may have been a peanuts only version, no raisins)... and maybe even another one (perhaps solid milk chocolate?). Anyway, nice web pages.

"I love coconut and pineapple, and needless to say I love pina coladas. But this candy bar (Almond Joy Pina Colada) sucked! I purchased two of them when I saw them because I was convinced that I would love them. After eating half of the first bar (I threw the other half away), I forgot about the second bar sitting in my front pocket. Went to see a concert that night in Philly- a woman who goes by the name Peaches. Towards the end of the show she had worked up quite an appitite and asked the crowd for food/drink handouts. So I threw the pina colada bar (half melted and squashed from being in my pocket half the day) up on stage, hitting her square on the forhead. She retrieved the bar from the stage floor, examined the label and opened the bar. After one bite she made this face of disgust and spit it out onto the floor. It might be one of those associations where you see the Almond Joy label and the brain makes an assumption that it will taste a certain way (chocolatey). Then when you try it, yuck! It's almost like the reverse of the taste expectation you'd get from that gimmicky Heinz Green Ketchup for kids (something that looks unfamiliar, but tastes familiar, as opposed to looking familiar, but not tasting familiar). It might help the next time I get a candy bar with a off-beat flavor to keep eyes shut when I eat it.

"I was checking out your page and worked up a craving, so I went down to the Rite-Aid next to my place of employment. First of all, the selection of candy bars in the U.S. is pretty beat compared to the U.K./Ireland, and Canada too, as your web page seems to suggest (caramel Kit-Kats...strawberry cream Kit-Kats!?! Awesome!). Inside Rite-Aid I found an even newer and improved version (per the label) of Snickers w/Almonds. Like many people who have commented on your page, I feel that the replacement of the Amerian Mars Bar with the Snickers w/Almonds was a step down (the caramel is not as soft and smooth, there seems to be less nougat and the chocolate is the same that is used in regular Snickers Bars - it makes my throat scratchy sometimes). Anyway, I tried this new version, and it's pretty good. Maybe I'm falling for the gimmick of a "new and improved" label (or in the case of this bar: PACKED TO THE MAX! MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF ALMONDS!), but it's better...and also available in king size (the Mars Bar was never available in king size, and I always wondered why (higher production cost?). The label on your page from April 2004 features the tag: MOST NUTS EVER!! I guess they tweaked it some more this time around. I think the regular Snickers bar has a similar "new & improved" label, but promoting maximum peanuts instead of almonds"

Mike says "Thanks for all the comments, Chris. I do have some of the newer Snickers and Snickers w/Almonds wrappers that you spoke of...just haven't had time to scan and post (I do have the "Packed to the Max" Snickers posted)."

On 3/17/05, John from Garland, Texas, wrote: "On the Candy Book page, you mentioned that Mars no longer makes PB Max, because they don't like Peanut Butter. So, if they don't like peanut butter, then why did they go ahead and make Peanut Butter M&M's Chocolate Candies? And speaking of the M&M's, I've done a search, and can't find out why the Mint M&M's aren't part of their product line, even though they DO make them (Meaning there are 6 flavors in their product line, not counting the Minis or Baking Bits: Milk Chocolate, Peanut, Peanut Butter, Almond, Crispy, and Mint), and as far as I know, the Mint comes out only during the holiday season. So, why did they leave out Mint in their product line on the M&M's website, even though they DO make it?"

Mike says "John is referring to my review of the book "The Emperors of Chocolate", which is a history of Mars and Hershey. Good book. Along with PB Max, the book does discuss the Peanut Butter M&Ms. Top officials at the company had to beg the Mars family to include the peanut butter M&Ms in the M&M line. The book goes on to say that the Peanut Butter M&Ms have almost been pulled from production several times because the Mars family simply hates peanut butter and can't understand that other people love it. As far as your Mint M&Ms question, I would guess that since it's only available once a year, they don't really count it as part of their line."

I'm interested in the different types of chocolate you have in the States, and am looking forward to trying some of them when I visit your country for the first time in a couple of weeks. I am amazed to see the number of products with peanut butter in them! That's something I never considered a likely combination with chocolate, but I will be interested to see how it tastes. Carol from Ontario left a comment about the Snack bar which contains various different fillings coated in chocolate. I assume she is referring to the Cadbury Snack, which is certainly still made here in Australia, and probably in England as well. It contains strawberry, pineapple, orange, coconut, turkish delight and caramel fillings. Finally, is it true that the Mars bar is not available in the States any more? That is interesting, as worldwide it is probably the most widely available and recognised brand, the Coca-Cola of chocolate bars. Thanks again for your site."

Mike says "David, hope you enjoy your trip to the States. You'll have to drop me a line and let me know what you think of the chocolate here in the US. It's kinda true that the Mars bar is no longer available in the US. It has been repackaged as the Snickers Almond bar, although if you ask a Mars bar lover, they'll tell you it's just not the same. As far as the peanut butter/chocolate thing, most Americans love peanut butter."

My Google search also found a recipe called Shamrock Cookies 'n Mint Dessert and interestingly it calls for 7oz bars, so must be from way back when the bars were bigger :-( Oh well, that's economics, I guess. I am a big fan of the mint and chocolate combination! By the way, to make really great hot chocolate, use the normal amount of Swiss Miss or whatever your favorite brand is and add one broken up small York Peppermint Patty. Stir well. A vending machine package of 3 patties will make three cups of rich, dark, minty hot chocolate, if you can keep yourself from eating the patties by themselves."

These days I get Toffifee in NYC that is sent over from Germany, and the ingredient list printed on your wrapper is quite different from the one on my German Toffifee. They don't just change recipes every ten minutes over there the way they do here. So I think they used to import them from Germany, but now they make an Americanized version of it (more sugar, less Hazelnuts) in America to suit American tastes (or American corporate profit goals). I concur on those TastyKakes! When I first arrived in Philadelphia for college, everyone raved about them and I tried one and thought "Yeah, they're better than the big national brands", but didn't think much more of it. But over time, I really get hooked. I think it's not just what you taste, but what you don't taste. Other brands punish you with an interminable aftertaste of chemical preservatives and flavorings. With TastyKakes, you have only the flavor of fresh, natural ingredients and few preservatives or no preservatives at all. Like you, I also enjoy the Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes, but I would swear they must be putting some sort of addictive substance into the Butterscotch Krimpets. There just aren't many people who have lived in Philly who haven't become totally addicted to those things. Most who have moved out of the area get teary-eyed reminiscing about how delicious one of those is with a cup of coffee. Anytime I'm driving through that area I make sure to stop at a Wawa and pick up a few boxes for myself and friends. Did you know that the Krimpets are still baked in the same factory, using the same recipe (and even the same cast-iron baking forms) as they have been using now for about a hundred years now? And last I checked, you could still go in and take a tour of their operation. God, those Krimpets are delicious! Now I'm hungry."

Mike says "What you say about the Toffifay may be true. Generally speaking, the hazelnut isn't very popular among Americans. Just like peanut butter isn't very popular in England (where the hazelnut is very popular). And BTW, Butterscotch Krimpets are my second favorite Tasty Kake."

I thought I'd stop by and visit and leave my comments on two new limited edition candy bars I tried last night. One is the Cadbury Royal Dark Mint (Mint Semi-Sweet Chocolate) & the other is the Cadbury Raspberry Creme (Indulgent White Chocolate). Let me tell you, it's pretty hard for me to find a candy bar that I don't like & these two are pretty bad. Both my husband & I didn't care for them at all. In fact, not be gross, but my husband mentioned that he kept burping up the Raspberry Creme one, and I laughed & said that the same thing was happening to me! It kept repeating itself! Yuck! Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing either of those candy bars - what a disappointment! Also, I noticed that you had a few people comment on McVitie's Penguin bars. These are now my all time favorite and I am sadly addicted to them! I can only find them online or when we visit Freeport, Maine, as there is a shop there that sells British goods and they have a large selection of British candy, cookies, crackers, etc. Penguins are so delicious! My second fave British candy bar is the Dairy Milk Bubble (formerly Wispa). Keep up the good work, Mike!"

Mike says "Nice to hear from you again, Ann. The Penguins are good!! It's been a while since I had one. A stop to the candy store in the Strip District in Pittsburgh is in order to pick some up."

By the way Mike what are your Top 10 least favorite chocolate bars?"

Mike says "Boy Carl, if we were roommates, I wouldn't have to worry about you eating my candy since most of the ones you hate, I love. This was kinda hard for me. I couldn't come up with 10. Probably if I was at a store, maybe I could come up with more. Frequent visitors can probably figure out what #1 is going to be. I stayed away from the Limited Edition bars. Here are my Bottom Five:
5. 3 Musketeers
4. White Chocolate Reese's
3. Butterfinger
2. Clark Bar
1. Zero
Please don't write in and say the Zero bar is great and I should try them again. I have tried them over and over. It ain't happenin'."

Your pics of candy bar wrappers have been a life saver! (You know, one of those hard candies with a hole in the middle.... hah, hah!) Anyhow, thanks for your diligent work on the wrappers. I've used many of your pics. I couldn't resist commenting on the "Ice Cube" wrapper. I haven't seen one of these in years. I used to buy them as a kid when they were probably a penny & candy bars were a nickle. I had no idea they were still in production anywhere in the world. Thanks again."

No wonder I go there often. I once saw someone (and I'm not kidding) leaning up against a weight machine eating a Snickers and holding a can of soda. How's the workout going? Anyway, I didn't have any money for the vending machine that day and, you guessed it, they were all gone the next time I went."

So, my question is- when do you think they will be unavilable to the public or to the retailers?"

Mike says "Wow...I'm honored that you would think I know more about availablility of a product rather than you, an actual store owner. If you don't know, I don't know. The only place I've seen them recently is at a dollar store. And generally, a product ends up at a dollar store because larger retailers cleared it from their stock (or it's overstock, etc.). You could try calling Reese's directly and asking them, but I don't have an answer for you."

Jr. Mints have always been everyone's favorites...now there is Jr. Caramels. They're pretty tasty, the caramel is soft. Also, Extra gum has a new Apple flavor. What else. There are three different $2.99 bags of Hershey's Assorted Miniatures that stores don't usually carry. Nut Lovers, Special Dark and Mr. Goodbar. Trident has a new cinnamon spice or cinnamon stick gum that is very tasty. Lastly, the Dove candy bar by Mars has done a major change to the wrapper, making it look maybe more antique or old, or desirable. So that's my news of the month. Hope people who read this can find some of these treats at there local stores."

Mike says "I have had the Jr. Caramels...they're not bad. I hope to have the wrapper (well, box) scanned and posted sometime. Big project at work and I haven't had much time to work on the page. That, and my new addiction to poker has taken a good chunk of my time.."

Whenever my brothers or my friends wanted muchies, we would run up the the White Hen Pantry near our house and others usually got the super big cookies or chocolate pies (like the cherry pies they sell at convenience stores), but I always knew what I wanted, it was the PB Twix. My absolute favorite! They actually never did go away for good. After only the caramel flavor Twix was sold in the gas stations and convenience stores, I paid attention more often on the lookout for them...I couldn't believe something so good could just disappear. I spotted them one day in the grocery store in the candy aisle sold in a box of 12(I think) individually wrapped cookie bars. The thing is, they were never as good as what I remember, until now. Maybe it's having two bars next to each other that makes all the difference. Well, glad to know there's others who appreciate this stuff as much as I. PB Twix Kicks Ass!"

I think instead of just hanging around the Christmas season, they stretch it out at least to Valentine's Day. So, you might be able to find them in places like Target or some of the larger drug store chains."

By the way Mike what are your Top 5 favorite chocolate bars?"

Mike says "I answered this question a while ago. So, what I'm going to do is list my five favorite and see if they have changed since the last time I listed them. My Top Five are:
5. Milky Way Midnight
4. Zagnut (although I can never find them)
3. Snickers
2. Caramello
1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
That was difficult to do. I made a 'short list' and came up with 12 favorites. Hard to get it down to 5!! And I didn't include any of the Limited Edition bars. Mostly, it's the same as the last time I made a list. But Reese's Nutragous was #4 (didn't make the list this time), Midnight was #2, Zagnut was #5, and Snickers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were the same. Oh, and BTW, in case you didn't know, Smarties in Canada are just like M&M's in the US."

Mike says "Argh. Ok, the reason this has happened several times on my site (me mistakingly referring an English chocolate for a Canadian chocolate) is because those are the chocolates I got at a store in Pittsburgh that has chocolates from around the world. They generally have tables set up with different countries on each table. I thought the table I got the Marble (and several others) from was all Canadian chocolate bars. Obviously, I was wrong. As someone else has since pointed out, you can tell it's Canadian because it will have both English and French on the wrapper. I have fixed the mistake for the Marble, but I'm not saying I fixed all the mistakes because I don't have time to go through all the pages!"
