Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bar

I know nothing about this bar except what is in front of me: Limited Edition Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bar.


I got it directly from the Mars company, but no press materials. So all I have to go by is what’s on the wrapper and of course what’s inside that chocolate enrobing.

The package says: Almonds, Caramel and Marshmallow-Flavored Nougat wrapped in Dark Chocolate.

I was kind of dubious. I wasn’t fond of the Hershey’s S’Mores bar ... but that’s S’Mores, this is Rocky Road, which has the addition of nuts and the subtraction of graham crackers.

Like all the limited edition Snickers bars, this is smaller than the regular, clocking in at 1.83 ounces instead of 2.07 for the original. I’m okay with the slight of .24 ounces, it’s a satisfying bar, it says so right on the back.

Snickers Rockin' Nut Road BarIt smells lightly of vanilla and dark toasted nuts with a touch of chocolate. The chocolate shell is decent, and sets off the sweet innards well. The caramel has a good mix of almond pieces in it, they’re all fresh and crunchy and much more noticeable than those in the Snickers Almond. The nougat though is where this bar really differs from all others I’ve tried. It’s not the grainy fluffed nougat that ends up in Milky Way and 3 Musketeers. Instead this is like a dense marshmallow. Smooth and not too sweet, a little stringy like the caramel.

It’s a completely different texture experience with this smoother “marshmallow flavored nougat”, kind of like real European-style nougats. (The ingredients list says egg whites, there is no gelatin in here like marshmallows have, so this is still vegetarian-safe ... and probably a nice option for vegetarians who miss marshmallows.)

Perhaps it’s because I have a bounty of these bars and have eaten at least five for this review (instead of the usual 1 or 2 for most reviews), it’s grown on me quite a bit. Dark chocolate was a good choice, it keeps it all from feeling heavy and sticky. Brian also liked them, but also stopped short of love (and I agree, regular Snickers is still the best.)

Still, I can’t tell you where you can find them or when they’ll be available. (Except, of course, from me if you read on.)

Here’s a special peek into the life of a candy blogger.

On February 27th I got an email from someone at Mars, thanking me for my positive review on the Twix Java and offering, “I will be happy to send you samples of new products as they become available.” (Emphasis mine.) She also mentioned that Mars has launched a new direct buy store, where you can pick up boxes of their candies, including the hard to find Munch and Snickers Dark. Instead of being more expensive than regular stores (like the M&Ms online store - $5.99 for 7 ounces of green M&Ms?) it’s about $.68 cents a bar.

Well, I’ve been looking for an “in” with Mars for quite a while, as I’d love to know about the new releases and get them in advance of release (it’s pretty frustrating to have people ask about something they found in the store, and I can’t find it in any stores near me and no where to order it on the web). I do get some notice from PR folks, but it’s not always consistent.

I replied with my address and reminded her that there is no need for thanks for any reviews, “I just call them like I taste them.” (And it’s not like I’ve raved about everything Mars has ever made, but in general I like their products and usually turn down offers for items I don’t think I’d like.)

Stuff from MarsThen on March 5th I came home from work and found this in my kitchen. Perhaps I don’t understand the term “samples” but even in the world of generous interpretations a single box of 24 bars would be an ample sample. A full case of the bars? (Yes, that’s 12 boxes of Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bars with 24 bars each = 288 bars.)

Plus a case of Twix Java! (360 bars.) And another more responsible box of 24 packages of Starbust GummiBurst (goo filled gummis) and another box of 24 Snickers Charged.

I wrote back to Mars, thanking them for their generosity, but gently nudging that I really don’t know what to do with all that candy (seriously, almost 700 portions!). She responded, “Share with your friends wink

So here I am, with oodles of candy. I’ve given away quite a bit, boxes to the office, a couple for raffle prizes for the American Cetacean Society, three to a neighbor to take to work.

It’s drawing time.

I’m offering a box of candy bars (your choice: Twix Java with 36 bars or this new Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bar with 24 bars - you can tell me which you want if you win). There will be two lucky winners of this drawing. The rules are as follows:

  • Leave a comment here and tell me your ideal candy bar. It can be one that already exists, a better quality version of an existing bar, something that was discontinued or perhaps something that no one’s ever made before. (Mine would be a pretzel base, with good chewy caramel, pecans and covered in dark chocolate. A decadent Take 5.)
  • Leave a real working email address. I will not share this with anyone, but I will need to contact you if you’re the winner. If I don’t hear back from you in 72 hours after notifying you that you’ve won, I’ll draw a new winner. (I’ve got to get these out of the house before it gets too warm.)
  • Don’t click the “get updates to comments” or else you’ll get hundreds of updates. (If you do it accidentally, there’s an unsubscribe at the end of each email.)
  • All entries must be received by April 5th at 10 AM Pacific.
  • I can only ship to addresses in North America. (I’ll run a contest that’s a little more international soon.)
  • Winners will be drawn randomly from all eligible entries.
  • And there you have it, dear readers. With great candy comes great responsibility.

    UPDATE 3/30/2008: Since this post has now been linked a couple of places (I kind of thought it was a treat for regular readers), I’m going to award three prize boxes instead of two if the entries reach 500. Just to keep the odds similar. (So if the deadline is coming and we haven’t hit it yet, tell your friends!) Thanks to everyone new who’s stopped by, I hope you keep reading!

    UPDATE 4/9/2008: Thanks to everyone who entered. I drew three winners: Elise, Stijn & Donna ... two picked the Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bars and one chose the Twix Java. They’re all in the mail on their way to their recipients! To everyone else who is interested in trying the bars, they’ll be available starting in July 2008 according to Mars. Comments are open again.

    1. My favorite candy is Macadamian Nut Crunch sold at Hilo Hatties and other Hawaiian stores. Don’t mess with it!

    2. I once had a chocolate bar that was really high quality milk chocolate infused with cinnamon…yum! Also love anything with good dark chocolate and great caramel (no nuts!)

      Comment by Alana on 3/29/08 at 7:55 am #
    3. My ideal would have to be a dark chocolate snickers with coffee flavored nougat and pecans instead of peanuts. mmmmmmm.

      Comment by Heather on 3/29/08 at 7:56 am #
    4. My ideal candy would be thin lindt milk chocolate coating wrapped around a smooth, slightly sticky caramel center with a yummy marshmallow (the kind that tastes homemade, NOT the kind that are hard or that you buy in the store). I am dying for a chocolate covered caramel marshmallow—although I think it would be awesome with a grainy butterscotch too!

    5. I have two ideal candy bars. The first one being a Payday, I love the combo of sweet and salty, and it goes OH so well with a hot cup of coffee. The other candy bar is the new Java Twix. I am a huge lover of anything coffee. I could not find these in my town, so I bought some off of ebay. OH MY GOD, they were worth every penny!! I can’t get over the yummy coffee taste of the caramel…SO good, and it makes me sad that I can’t find them in my town!

    6. I LOVE Almond Joy but think with more almonds and dark chocolate it would be out of this world!

      Comment by Melissa on 3/29/08 at 8:06 am #
    7. I like the good ole Almond Hershey Bars. Nothing too fancy.

      Comment by Donna on 3/29/08 at 8:10 am #
    8. My ideal candy bar is the Green Tea Kitkat bars.  I’m obsessed with green tea flavored things in general: green tea roll cakes, green tea ice cream, etc.  So favorite candy is definitely the green tea kitkats!

      Comment by Liz on 3/29/08 at 8:17 am #
    9. My numero uno candy bar would also havea pretzel base, but it would be filled with a thick maple syrup, and some toasted almonds. Then the outsde woud be housed in thin shell of dark chocolate. Yummm sugar!!!!

      Comment by Melissa on 3/29/08 at 8:22 am #
    10. I like both filled and “plain” chocolate bars.  I’m rather fond of the dagoba lavender bar and lime bar, but in terms of filled bars I’d really like a milky way with a more expensive chocolate coating.

      Comment by Jocelyn on 3/29/08 at 8:39 am #
    11. I want a pecan pie candy bar - maybe something with a shortbread “crust” and pecan pie type filling on top, then covered in chocolate.

      Comment by Vanessa on 3/29/08 at 8:47 am #
    12. im getting tired of all the usual choices out there

      take 5 is great and i have a few right beside me but after eating them the last few days im getting bored again.

      if i could design something new and exciting it would be a fluffy rose water flavored marshamallow, covered in chocolate, rolled in toasted pistachios.

    13. My ideal candy bar is any type of Hershey’s Symphony Bar!

      Comment by joshua steinert on 3/29/08 at 9:11 am #
    17. I use to LOVE Snickers bars but then I ran into the Toblerone… it was wonderful: Small bits of Honey-Nut Nougatness (Wow, I made up a word xD) that just helped defined the chocolate rather than having the chocolate define the insides!

      Comment by Raine on 3/29/08 at 9:18 am #
    18. My favorite candy bar growing up was Marathon Bar.  I forgot who made it but it was just caramel all twisted up and covered in chocolate.  Boy, do I miss them!

      Comment by Cath on 3/29/08 at 9:37 am #
    19. I’d like a salty malted crisp shortbread cookie base dipped in a thin layer of salted caramel, honey marshmallow, toasted coconut, and drenched in thick shell of dark chocolate.

      Comment by Alice on 3/29/08 at 9:51 am #
    20. Oooh, I’m dreaming of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with a layer of the Butterfinger filling on the bottom, and covered in really good quality dark chocolate. In all honesty, it would probably be overkill in reality, but in my head it works just fine.

      Comment by Hannah on 3/29/08 at 10:00 am #
    21. Anything that combines sweet, salt, crunch, and smooth. Take 5 was probably closest to this, but the chocolate was a bit too sweet.

      Comment by Joel on 3/29/08 at 10:26 am #
    22. My ideal candy bar would have a buttery toffee center, surrounded by a mix of large almonds and crushed pistachios that have been cinnamon/vanilla spice roasted and the whole thing generously drizzled with dark chocolate.

      Comment by Rebecca on 3/29/08 at 10:35 am #
    23. My ideal candy bar would probably be some sort of dark chocolate truffle bar.  High quality..not icky smile.

      And, 184 Rebecca, there was a peanut butter Twix at one point.  Don’t know what happened to it.

      Comment by Chelsea on 3/29/08 at 10:36 am #
    24. Champagne laced chocolate covered fruit (strawberries, bananas, oranges, star fruit, ect.) It doesn’t matter if its white, milk or dark chocolate!!!

      Comment by Wyn on 3/29/08 at 10:59 am #
    25. Ah, I absolutely adore the Laura Secord mint-chocolate bar. I also loved the Cadbury Dream bar…not sure if they still make it though. My dream chocolate bar would have to be one with dark chocolate, ginger, and cinnamon.

      Comment by Caitlin on 3/29/08 at 11:00 am #
    26. well yo’ve finally managed to lure this lurker from the shadows.  i’ve been reading your blog nearly every day for the past few months and i absolutley love it, but have yet to post…till today! this is way to tempting. 
      let’s see, my perfect candy bar—the perfect dark chocoalte, that’s it.  fresh bite, smooth melt, complex flavor, real cocoa, bittersweet, slighlty salty.  everything else gets in the way.

      Comment by rhiannon on 3/29/08 at 11:09 am #
    27. My ideal candy bar would be anything that tasted like the orignal but was somehow more healthy for you.. :D

      Comment by Benjamin Nelson on 3/29/08 at 12:07 pm #
    28. Ideal candy bar has to be Snickers. This is the only one I’ve consistently gone back to (holiday bite sizes are awesome) time and again.

      Comment by Jack on 3/29/08 at 12:10 pm #
    29. I like so many of the candy bars that already exist, but this got me thinking about new combinations that I imagine might be tasty. So here goes.

      A layer of marshmallow treat with cashew butter flavor, topped by a nougat mixed with salty cashew bits. Spread a sheet of nicely browned caramel on top that stops just short of that burned sugar flavor note. Enrobe the whole in a chocolate a little darker than milk, but still a little sweet.

      Yeah, I’m a cashew fan. And unless I’m mistaken, there aren’t really any cashew-based candy bars, are there?

    30. My ideal candy bar is Vosges Woolamoo Bar.

      Comment by Elle on 3/29/08 at 12:21 pm #
    31. Dark chocolate, with layers of crispy rice and wafers, a ton of Reeses peanut butter, and cashews!  Or about 20 of the other suggestions here.

      Comment by kimberly on 3/29/08 at 12:24 pm #
    32. my ideal candy bar would be a jar of reese’s pb filling and spoon..

      Comment by Angie on 3/29/08 at 12:30 pm #
    33. My idea of the perfect candy bar would be a combination of Butterfingers’ flavors and textures and also the texture of the nougat inside a 3 Musketeers…but peanut butter flavored.  Basically a two-layered peanut butter extravaganza covered in milk chocolate!

      Comment by Shari on 3/29/08 at 12:37 pm #
    34. So far I think the Caramel Nut Bar from BonBonBar is my idea of the perfect candy bar.


      Comment by Bryan on 3/29/08 at 12:39 pm #
    35. Dark Chocolate, Cashew, Caramel - yum!

      Comment by Emily on 3/29/08 at 12:41 pm #
    36. I’d like a bar, that looks sort of like a twix, except it would be a thick caramel base, with a reeses PB layer, all drenched in (thickish) DARK chocolate, and I’d eat it in layers (as I do my twix)... chocolate, pb, then caramel… MMM, it’d be really good frozen!

      Comment by Tori on 3/29/08 at 12:48 pm #
    37. My ideal candy bar is anything with semi-sweet or dark chocolate and rich, buttery toffee. Throw in a couple almonds to add a nuttier flavor and I’m in heaven!

      Congrats on the awesome haul!

      Comment by Christian Bruce on 3/29/08 at 12:58 pm #
    38. I love Ritter Sport but I’ve yet to find a mexican chocolate bar with the perfect filling or ripple of cinnamon sugar.

      Comment by Janelle on 3/29/08 at 1:04 pm #
    39. I agree with you in that my ideal bar would also have a pretzel base, but it’d be topped with caramel and peanuts and enrobed in dark chocolate as well.

      Comment by Michael Kaye on 3/29/08 at 1:13 pm #
    40. A candy bar made with a snyders pretzel peanut butter sandwiches base, topped with a layer of marshmallow creme and then covered in dark chocolate would be rad.

      Comment by vinny on 3/29/08 at 1:17 pm #
    41. I love Sees raspberry creams. Dark chocolate and a tangy raspberry. I also love the scotchmellows so these new snickers sound like heaven. Pick Me!!

      Comment by Malinda on 3/29/08 at 1:21 pm #
    42. Turtle candy with dark chocolate (do they make those?).  Also, almond roca with dark chocolate.  Mmmm, just about anything with dark chocolate.  I’m not too picky grin

      Comment by joe positive on 3/29/08 at 1:25 pm #
    43. Take 5’s are my favorite. But Snickers are a close second.

      Comment by Jessie on 3/29/08 at 1:32 pm #
    44. Whatever is on the inside, I’d like the outside to be Dove Dark Chocolate. Maybe some salted, toasted almonds. No carmel, no fluff. Cookie maybe? Pretzel?
      Durn, now I’m hungry!

      Comment by Liz Anderson on 3/29/08 at 1:57 pm #
    45. My ideal would be dark chocolate, cherries, pecans, with a graham cracker base. smile

      Comment by Rachel B on 3/29/08 at 2:01 pm #
    46. I’d be happy if they just brought back the Cookies and Cream Twix bar from about 14 years ago smile

      Comment by Matthew Wells on 3/29/08 at 2:05 pm #
    47. I miss Marathon bars—they were just a great combo of sweet chewy caramel and lovely milk chocolate. how to make them better? add salted pretzel layer underneath with the salted bits facing down. or use peanut butter in the mix…. mmmm.. I’d love to try the Snickers Rockin? Nut Road Bars. Cheers! xox - bny

    48. I’d want a Milky Way with a layer of hazelnut cream.

      Comment by Shail on 3/29/08 at 2:18 pm #
    49. My ideal candy bar would be dark chocolate covered circus peanuts(yes the little orange ones).  I may be the only person alive that likes them, but thats ok…more for me smile

      Comment by Karen on 3/29/08 at 2:37 pm #
    50. I’d create a pistachio wafer base with dried cherries over it, covered in much dark(good quality!)chocolate. There’s nothing like this-though my treasured Twin Bing is a start.

      Comment by Skye Sciolto on 3/29/08 at 2:43 pm #
    51. A milk chocolate bar with pecans, cashews, nougat, and peanut butter.

      Comment by Jason on 3/29/08 at 2:43 pm #
    52. I would love a Reese’s with carmel and marshmellow and extra extra peanut butter.

      Comment by Bear Silber on 3/29/08 at 3:04 pm #
    53. Ideal candy bar? A crumbled pecan cookie base with salted caramel layered on top and coated with dark chocolate.

      Comment by marc on 3/29/08 at 3:07 pm #
    54. Me, I want Hershey to bring back the Golden III. The blue Symphony bars are a fair substitute, but I still miss the coconut.

      Comment by Chris Lemon on 3/29/08 at 3:18 pm #
    55. My ideal candy bar would be a bar version of the Reese’s cup.  I could eat the seasonal Reese’s (trees, eggs) until I died of happy, but a bar—particularly one with more chocolate in the chocolate-to-peanut-butter ratio - would be divine.

      Comment by Camille on 3/29/08 at 3:24 pm #
    56. I think that my favorite candy bar would be a chewy nougat with toffee center covered with coconut-y chocolate coating.

      Comment by Don on 3/29/08 at 3:33 pm #
    57. My ideal candy bar would be layered hazelnut nougat, macadamia nuts, and wafers (Kit Kat style) wrapped in milk or dark chocolate… Mmmm…

      The Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bar sounds fabulous!  I have always been a big s’mores fan, and love to try new marshmallow concoctions.

      Comment by Sophie on 3/29/08 at 3:34 pm #
    58. Mmmmm….Candy bars.

      My favorite candy bar is the Mars Bar which I think they’ve now changed to Snickers with Almonds (It will always be Mars Bar in my heart).  My dream candy bar would be one that is loaded with caramel and perhaps covered in a slightly sweeter than dark, but not as sweet as milk, chocolate. 

      Thanks for sharing!!


      Comment by Stefanie on 3/29/08 at 3:43 pm #
    59. My candy bar would be a vanilla sandwich wafer cookie (the one that comes packaged with chocolate and strawberry cookies), covered with peanut butter and enrobed in white chocolate.

      Comment by Aaron on 3/29/08 at 3:47 pm #
    60. This isn’t really a candy bar but I love Walnut Whips! I wish they were bigger but otherwise they are fine the way they are. smile

      Comment by Divalicious on 3/29/08 at 3:49 pm #
    61. I love Mars bars, so they’re almost my ideal, but I’d love them with a little salt thrown in. I like the texture of the bars already, so I wouldn’t want nuts, but maybe some salt in the caramel would help to balance out the sweetness.

      Comment by Lisa on 3/29/08 at 3:50 pm #
    62. I love snickers just the way they are…. though the recommendation for hazelnut got me thinking… snickers with hazelnut and dark chocolate

      Comment by princexy on 3/29/08 at 4:02 pm #
    63. The unloved Heath Bar.
      I like the crispness and the salty taste, but what makes them really ideal for me is the versatility. As ice cream mix-ins, baking ingredients, cake toppings, whatever; Heath bars excel in any context.

      Comment by James on 3/29/08 at 4:03 pm #
    64. I think, that Mars bar with dark chocolate, would just be phenomenal! The same way dark chocolate MMs are incredible. I did like the suggestion of someone else to add some salt on the bar to contrast/enhance the sweetness.

      Comment by MacChampagne on 3/29/08 at 4:05 pm #
    65. I’d love a Take 5 that replaced the caramel with shortbread or graham cracker bits.

      Comment by Gigi on 3/29/08 at 4:06 pm #
    66. Hi! Gosh, my ideal candy bar? Something simple, like dark chocolate with a caramel center- the liquid sort of caramel, not the chewy sort.

      Comment by Mallory on 3/29/08 at 4:33 pm #
    67. I have two ideal candy bars - one is the Henry & David Moose Crunch Bar - I LOVE the chocolate and popcorn combination. 
      My other ideal bar would be REAL dark chocolate, PLUMP golden raisins, cranberries, and pecans.  Like a CHUNKY bar but with more raisins.

      Comment by Jessica on 3/29/08 at 4:34 pm #
    68. My ideal candy bar would have dark chocolate, peanuts, caramel filling, almonmds, and pecans.

      Comment by Gregg Stone on 3/29/08 at 4:44 pm #
    69. I love the ZERO bar but I would add very dark chocolate instead of the white chocolate!

      Comment by Nanci on 3/29/08 at 4:54 pm #
    70. For me, Snickers, the original, is the perfect candy bar.  Give it to me room temp or frozen and I’m in bar heaven.

      Comment by Brian on 3/29/08 at 5:02 pm #
    71. My ideal chocolate bar would be candied orange peels with nuts (preferably crushed almonds and perhaps toasted) covered in rich dark chocolate. Something like the Cadbury fruits and nuts dark chocolate, but with orange peels instead of the raisins. The bitter-sweetness in orange peels covered in dark chocolate is so good.

      Comment by Janet on 3/29/08 at 5:02 pm #
    72. My ideal chocolate bar would be malt honeycomb center surrounded by dark chocolate. Somewhat like Maltesers be in the form of Kit Kat.

      Comment by Kevin on 3/29/08 at 5:06 pm #
    73. I think a java m&M;‘s would be amazing.

      Comment by Dee on 3/29/08 at 5:12 pm #
    74. For a convenience store candy bar, Take 5 is close to perfect.  If the peanut butter were a little creamier, the caramel a little chewier, and the chocolate a little higher quality, I would weigh a lot more than I do now!

      Comment by Jane on 3/29/08 at 5:13 pm #
    75. I would love a candy bar with some sort of artificial pistachio flavoring.

      Comment by Brian on 3/29/08 at 5:41 pm #
    76. My ideal candy bar would be a graham cracker base topped with cinnamon flavored caramel and covered in lots and lots of milk chocolate smile


      Comment by sc on 3/29/08 at 5:43 pm #
    77. My ideal candy bar would be a layer of nougat and caramel with whole almonds on top and it would be totally wrapped in Cadbury chocolate.

      Comment by Wendy on 3/29/08 at 5:54 pm #
    78. My perfect candy bar would be a combination of a heath bar and a reeses peanut butter cup except coated in dark chocolate. YUM.

      Comment by Nicole L on 3/29/08 at 5:54 pm #
    79. I haven’t seen my ideal chocolate bar in a few years. It was called Buttermallow by Laura Secord and consisted of the best tasting marshmallow topped with runny caramel and covered with a rich milk chocolate. Truly delicious.

      Comment by Elizabeth on 3/29/08 at 6:03 pm #
    80. I would love a bar of dark chocolate, marshmallow, caramel, and cashews.  It can be mixed up, layered, whatever.  Yum!

      Comment by Jules on 3/29/08 at 6:05 pm #
    81. Take 5 is pretty much my favorite candy bar already, but I can think of a few changes anyway. I’d really love a Take 5 mixed with 100 Grand. So basically a nicely salted pretzel with a thick layer of caramel on top along with a milk chocolate covering with puffed rice. I’d order those by the box.

      And something that will likely never ever be made, chocolate covered Cheddar goldfish. Goldfish dipped in chocolate frosting are amazing.

    82. I honestly can’t decide on a perfect candy bar since they are all so delicious. Since all of the nougats, caramels, peanut butter and crispy bars exist, how about an oreo cheesecake candy bar. I’m trying to think of something that doesnt need to be refridgerated, but all I can think of is something with an oreo crust, a rich cheesecake-esque center covered in chocolate with chocolate sprinkles on top. We could call it a CheeseQuake bar!

      Comment by Jennifer on 3/29/08 at 6:27 pm #
    83. My ideal candy bar would have a piece of chewy caramel (I really mind the runny kind, but it’s usually unsatisfying) coated with roasted hazelnuts and dipped in good-quality dark chocolate.

      Comment by Nicole on 3/29/08 at 6:31 pm #
    84. I just thought of another one!! Crushed potato chips in a bar shape covered in milk chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate…my cheesecake bar might sell better though

    85. Hi there -

      My ideal candy bar would be a kit kat with marshmallow….guess which bar I would choose if I win?!  smile

      Comment by Michelle on 3/29/08 at 6:42 pm #
    86. I would take the standard Snickers, but replace the peanuts with chunks of sesame candy.  that sounds mighty tasty to me.

      Comment by Aaron Leva on 3/29/08 at 6:45 pm #
    87. My favorite commercially made candy bar of all time is the Zero bar.  Its creamy and covered in white fudge, but its balanced by the slightly salty peanuts and almond nougat.  I like to think of it as Snickers’ awkward cousin.

      Comment by Ashley on 3/29/08 at 7:04 pm #
    88. If I were to design a bar of my own, I would take into account the satisfaction of the creamy/crunchy combination, and use salted pecans that were roasted in a bit of butter.  The pecans would be over dark chocolate truffle, and the whole thing would be coated in caramel, then dark chocolate.  Fancy schmancy.

      Comment by Cel on 3/29/08 at 7:08 pm #
    89. Two words: chocolate, coconut. Anything else is superfluous.

      Comment by Ginnie on 3/29/08 at 7:26 pm #
    90. I’m not original but I love a good snickers straight from the freezer.

      Comment by Steph on 3/29/08 at 7:31 pm #
    91. I love Caramel and Chocolate combined with anything crunchy. Caramacs and 100 Grand bars are a couple of favorites.

      Comment by Fran on 3/29/08 at 7:38 pm #
    92. I think my ideal candy bar would be a very thick bar enrobed in a really rich, dark chocolate. The center would be something like chocolate mousse cheesecake- it would have to taste *exactly* like cheesecake, mind you, not the faux-cheesecake in Godiva’s truffles (which are alright, but not what I want), and here’s where I tread that fine line between what is real and the realmof ‘might not be invented yet’...there would be something like the opposite of what makes those ‘cool’ gushers freeze your tongue. The filling of the candy bar would react in such a way that the bar would feel *warm*, like cheesecake out of the oven. And somewhere in the middle of that warm, moussey, cheesecakey, chocolatey goodness, I’d want a nice, liquid, tart fruity flavor. Something like raspberry or even pomegranate.

      (Aside from that, I’d really like a snozzberry candy bar. Why? Because when I was little, I dared to ask the question: ‘What DOES a snozzberry taste like? I assumed it was really good for Willy Wonka not to actually say.)

      Comment by Ivy on 3/29/08 at 8:00 pm #
    93. my ideal bar would be have my homemade brownies as a base, a thick layer of slightly chewy salted orange caramel and roasted almonds, covered in a high percentage dark chocolate.
      *le sigh*

      Comment by dmc on 3/29/08 at 8:14 pm #
    94. I think a peanut butter Snickers bar would be awesome…

      Comment by Mark on 3/29/08 at 8:28 pm #
    95. My ideal candy bar is one that cannot exist. My ideal candy bar would healthy, but not taste like it was. It would actually have more nutritional benefits than not.

      But given that this is an impossibility, my ideal candy bar would have lots of peanuts, marshmellows, and peanutbutter.

      Comment by cassie on 3/29/08 at 8:52 pm #
    96. My ideal candy bar would be (at least at the moment, and barring the concept of a “mood ring” style bar that would change as your cravings did) a tart fruit - cranberry, maybe, or orange - and nuts in nougat, with a chocolate coating.

      Comment by Tina on 3/29/08 at 9:01 pm #
    97. chocolate exterior, innards = wafers layered with peanut butter, nutella, random toffee bits, and more layers of chocolate. (maybe a thin layer of nougat too)


      Comment by melissa on 3/29/08 at 9:13 pm #
    98. Peanut M&M;‘s to me are the perfect candy.  There are only two things to me that could be better.  Number one, Rocky Road Snickers.  Are you kidding me?  My favorite ice cream made into a candy bar.  Sheesh. Yum.  Also ... Caramel M&M;‘s.  They test marketed these on a very very limited basis in “hispanic” markets about 6 years ago, and thanks only to the generosity and hard work of a former vendor of mine, I managed to snag a box of them.

      Comment by Stephanie on 3/29/08 at 9:16 pm #
    99. I love dark chocolate and nuts. I would have the darkest chocolate possible and maybe some toasted almonds with an additional dusting of rich cocoa powder. *slurp*

      To the early poster who wanted a hazelnut Snickers, we have that in Finland right now. Dh found it while we were shopping last week. My first reaction was “ewww” but I’ve had time to consider it and I think I’ll give it a try now.

      Comment by Karen Salo on 3/29/08 at 9:56 pm #
    100. I always loved the boxes of individual Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews. The new Snickers bar sounds great, so that would be my choice! Thanks

      Comment by KATHY SWENSON on 3/29/08 at 10:05 pm #
    101. My ideal candy bar…
      a layer of wafer, a layer of nougat, a layer of strawberry filling/fondant (like in Strawberry Cream’s), coated in thick milk chocolate. Shaped long and rectangular. Kind of like a cross between a Kit Kat Chunky, and a Strawberry flavoured Mars Bar.

    102. Basically I’m obsessed with cake batter and frosting.  My ideal candy bar would be a nougatey textured cake batter inside with a layer of vanilla buttercream frosting on top of it, and then covered in a vanilla fondant.  Come on Mars, give it a try!

      Comment by Jeff on 3/30/08 at 1:42 am #
    103. My ideal is sweet and salty together and is almost always homemade—chocolate covered pretzels work for me, and so do peanut clusters made with salty cocktail peanuts.  I’ve never tasted commercial candy that’s as good as what I can make myself!  (But obviously I’m willing to give the new Snickers or the Twix Java a try!)

      Comment by Mary Lee on 3/30/08 at 2:01 am #
    104. My ideal candy bar would be…a Take 5, maybe, or a Cookies n’ Cream Hershey bar.

    106. Resembles a Twix but with the following adjustments, a very buttery shortbread cooking 3x as wide same thickness. Then a layer of super creamy peanut butter. On top of that beer nuts. then covered in Lindt milk chocolate

      Comment by Karen on 3/30/08 at 3:16 am #
    108. My ideal candy bar is anything with peanut butter!!  I loved the Snickers Peanut Butter Bar

      Comment by Penny Snyder on 3/30/08 at 3:27 am #
    109. I would love to see the Frigor Noir bars I had in Europe available in the US.  If I designed one, it would be a softish, dark, dark chocolate and a peanut butter center.

      Comment by April on 3/30/08 at 3:28 am #
    110. My ideal candy bar is a Baby Ruth, with chewy caramel, peanuts, and a milk chocolate coating! YUM! smile

      Comment by Jenny on 3/30/08 at 3:34 am #
    111. My favorite candy bar has been defunct for quite awhile—Butternut, which used to be made by Hollywood Candy company (makers of Zero and Payday).  It was caramel and peanuts, enrobed in chocolate.

      Comment by Linda J on 3/30/08 at 3:49 am #
    112. I’m a caramel fanatic!

      Comment by Tom on 3/30/08 at 3:50 am #
    113. I beleive my favorite is the most underrated bar, The Heath!

      Comment by Bob Macdonald on 3/30/08 at 3:51 am #
    114. Hands Down!!! BEST candy bar ever was the Marathon Bar!!! 18 inches of braided real caramel(remember what that was like?)covered with a light chocolate drizzle.So chewy, you could lose a cap if you wernt careful, so long, it was like a marathon (thus the name). I believe that it eventually transformed into the $100,000 bar which then evolved into the Hundred Grand we have today.Far cheaper to make, far,far cry from its begining. One of my favorite childhood memories, racing to finish one against my brother.

    116. Dark chocolate milky way!

      Comment by Louise Brouillette on 3/30/08 at 4:21 am #
    117. I think my ideal would be a traditional milky way, but with dark chocolate, and the caramel would be salted, and maybe find a way to throw some malt in there a la malteasers/whoppers?

      Comment by Micki on 3/30/08 at 4:28 am #
    118. caramel, almonds, peanut butter, with a cookie bar covered in chocolate

      Comment by Kimberly Balderas on 3/30/08 at 4:40 am #
    119. I’ve always thought that the Take 5 bar was the perfect candy. Peanut butter, chocolate, pretzels, caramel…its perfect

      Comment by Matt Shoukry on 3/30/08 at 4:41 am #
    120. My ideal candy bar would be cruncy peanut butter covered with white chocolate, topped with crunched peanuts, topped with dark chocolate!!!

      Comment by Jean Steinhardt on 3/30/08 at 5:01 am #
    124. Reeses peanut butter cups as I love chocolate and peanut butter.

      Comment by Shannon Baas on 3/30/08 at 5:02 am #
    125. I’ve always been a chocolate mint fanatic, so my ideal candy bar would have a dense, fudgy chocolate base, perhaps similar to a soft Riesen, topped with a creamy, sharp peppermint nougat, all dipped in dark chocolate.

      Comment by Crystal on 3/30/08 at 5:07 am #
    126. A thin dark chocolate coating with tiramisu filling, or a white chocolate shell with whipped peanut butter and marshmallow fluff filling.

      Comment by Graham on 3/30/08 at 5:12 am #
    127. A cross between a snickers and a 3 Muskateers with a little Almond Joy thrown in.

      Comment by Karen M on 3/30/08 at 5:29 am #
    128. Milky Ways are just perfect.

      Comment by Denise on 3/30/08 at 5:31 am #
    129. My ideal candy bar would be a bottom layer of caramel and nuts topped with a layer of chocolate fluff (like a 3 Musketeers) all enrobed in dark chocolate.

      Comment by rffoodie on 3/30/08 at 5:42 am #
    130. Something like Newman’s Own dark chocolate version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but with higher percentage cacao dark chocolate and half as much sugar.

      Comment by Martin A. on 3/30/08 at 5:52 am #
    131. Snickers SATISFIES!

      Comment by Jack Bell on 3/30/08 at 5:55 am #
    132. My favorite candy bar would be the peanut butter snickers (discontinued) with a layer of marshmallow fluff. So basically a combo of a Snickers and a Fluffer-Nutter. I LOVE anything marshmallow cream, so I would love to win the Snickers Rocky Road - smile.

      Comment by Claudia on 3/30/08 at 6:09 am #
    133. I love any Sees that have marshmallows in it!

      Comment by Denise Montgomery on 3/30/08 at 6:22 am #
    138. The description of your ideal candy bar sounds almost like what I would describe. A salty/sweet chocolate and caramel concoction, except leave out the pecans. Yummmm! Oh and it should be a miracle of modern science in that it is HUGE, scrumptious and have no calories and fat.

      Comment by Dawn Bates on 3/30/08 at 6:22 am #

    147. Gosh, there are so many!  Nutrageous is my very fav, but I can’t find them any more!!  Thankfully I can still find Reese Cups & Snickers & Millky Ways.

      Comment by randi oaklief on 3/30/08 at 7:07 am #
    148. My ideal candy bar would have toffee, almonds, soft nougat, and milk chocolate.  I don’t care if dark chocolate is supposed to be better for me, I Like milk chocolate, and since when do I eat candy because it’s good for me.

      Comment by Mary Cummins on 3/30/08 at 7:08 am #
    149. I love butterscotch, but haven’t seen any candy bars out there with this ingrediant.  I think a yummy candy bar would be one that has an outer layer of white chocolate with a buttescotch and peanut butter filling.  Yummy!

      Comment by Chris on 3/30/08 at 7:15 am #
    150. I love banana and peanut butter but the reeses cups they made left a funny after taste.  So my ideal candy bar would be something reminicent of the Reese’s Fast Break with some sort of banana creme added to it, maybe in the nougant part….MMMMM! smile

      Comment by Julie on 3/30/08 at 7:17 am #

    161. There was a candy bar back in the day that was made by the Pearson Candy Co. The candy was called the 7 Up Bar, I think. It had 7 different fillings. I like variety. Currently I would say Snickers is my favorite.

      Comment by Tabatha on 3/30/08 at 8:17 am #
    166. I love a slab of Torrone nougat with toasted almonds, half-dipped in dark chocolate. It looks like that might have partly inspired the Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road bar. I hope this isn’t *too* limited an edition, because I’m looking forward to trying it.

      Comment by Gwen on 3/30/08 at 8:28 am #
    167. I don’t have an ‘ideal’ candy bar. I am an equal opportunity candy lover. Snickers, Almond Joy, Kit Kat…you name it, I’ll eat it.

      Thank you for the wonderful giveaway…I love candy!!

      Comment by christina singer on 3/30/08 at 9:08 am #
    172. I often go to upstate NY for a candy run.  One bar I can no longer find in the store is something like a big Reese’s peanut butter cup, but with strawberry jam inside as well.  Another favourite is only sold in Cuba, Mexico, etc: Bubu Lubu.  It is strawberry jam + marshmallow, all covered in chocolate.  MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

      Comment by Sue Michal on 3/30/08 at 9:27 am #

      Comment by Christine Bench on 3/30/08 at 9:32 am #
    174. I LOVE Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, but I love real peanut butter the most.  If I would be able have one of my choice it would be to make candy bars with real peaunut butter, not the flakey pretend stuff. A cookie with peanut butter, covered in chocolate, with & without peanuts.  I know its similar to a Twix, but the real PB is the key!

      Comment by Nicole on 3/30/08 at 9:42 am #
    175. I had to think about this one for a minute!  The snickers rock’n nut bar sounds devine.  This is what I would just be in heaven with.

      wonderbar, almond snickers, wonderbar sammy!!

      just thinking about it makes my mouth water

      or when I was a youngen there was a chocolate bar called a pepchew…..loved them.

    178. I adore Baby Ruth bars (okay pretty anything with chocolate and caramel), however, my all time favorite is long gone. It was a Marathon bar. It was simple, just chocolate-covered caramel in a cool braided shape.

      Comment by ezmerelda on 3/30/08 at 9:58 am #
    179. Thank you so much for this yummy giveaway.  My special candy bar would have pretzels, nuts (peanuts or almonds), coconut, nugget and lots of chocolate ontop.  Thanks again.

    182. I’m not sure if this was considered a candy or not, but I used to love Peanut Butter Bops, the choc. chip flavor.  That was so good.  It’s been years but I still crave them once in awhile.  So something that tastes exactly like a chocolate chip Peanut Butter Bop would be my ideal candy.

      Comment by Ni Cole on 3/30/08 at 10:17 am #
    183. If they made a reese’s cup with mint instead of peanut butter.

    185. My ideal candy bar would be one that magically transforms itself to satisfy my moods and cravings wink. Realistically, I am passionately in love with Max-5 (Canadian version of Take 5). In fact I just ate one to make sure this report would be accurate. If I could, i would add more everything to this bar - more peanut butter, thicker caramel, more nuts, thicker layer of chocolate…mmmm.

    189. my ideal bar is a mix of sweet & salty, definitely with nuts - I think kind of like a Take 5 bar made w/ dark chocolate and with more nuts.

    192. My favorite is Snickers so I’m certain I’ll love this Rockin’ Nut Road Bar too.  I’d also like to see a candy bar like Snickers only substitute pecans for the peanuts.  That would be awesome.

    194. My ideal (mini) candy bar.  Stuff Twix’s cookie into a 3 Musketeers dark.  For variation maybe adding a fine layer of almonds just under the chocolate layer at the top.

    195. I think mine would be a 3 muskateers bar with a layer of caramel on the inside as well.  Maybe a touch of cinnamon too.

    197. A nice chewy vanilla caramel (not the sauce-like stuff) with walnuts enrobed in a 65% cacao dark chocolate with pink hawaiian sea salt or french grey sea salt sprinkled on top….yummmmmmmmm
      and I have always loved AERO bars too =)
