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. I love See’s Scotchmellow, perhaps that with a graham cracker crust to make it like a Smore’s with caramel!

    2. I would like a Snickers with Extra Nuts and pecans yums. The rocky road snicker sounds good.

    9. I can’t say there is A candy bar out there that I must have.  My favorite candy bar would be twix.  I love the carmel and cookie crunch coated with chocolate.  The thing that I think would make it out of this world would to be cover it with dark chocolate instead of milk.  I don’t think they have done that yet - at least I haven’t seen anything like it in my area!

      Comment by Shelby on 3/30/08 at 12:15 pm #
    10. My ideal candy bar would be a light chocolate creme/ganache infused with rum and raisins, spiked with crispy bits of maybe rice puffs or rosted almonds and covered with dark chocolate.
      I use my pregnancy as excuse for the strange combination grin.

      Comment by Sonja on 3/30/08 at 12:19 pm #
    11. I would like to see a candy bar dipped in rainbow sprinkles. Even something as simple as a 3 Musketeers dipped in rainbow sprinkles. I can’t think of anything better!

      Comment by Rachel on 3/30/08 at 12:24 pm #
    12. Okay this is pretty complicated:
      My ideal candy bar would be the soft chocolate center of the Ferrero Rocher candy with the nut in the middle.  The chocolate center would be covered in rice krispy treats with big chunks of marshmallow in it (instead of having it all mixed in like the actual stuff).  A layer of nougat would surround that.  And the last thing would be a layer of Godiva milk chocolate coating the entire thing.  mmm it would be a big ball of deliciousness. smile god, i want to make one now. hahaha.

      Comment by Diana on 3/30/08 at 12:30 pm #
    13. hazelnuts, nougat, bittersweet ganache and a hint of salted caramel.

    14. It’s my birthday today and Snickers has always been my candy bar of choice.  Therefore, what better time than get a present of a new taste sensation in my favorite bar.  Thanks!

      Comment by Jo Schwartz on 3/30/08 at 12:34 pm #
    15. thick caramel, pecans and a high grade extra creamy milk chocolate…or a vanilla infused sponge toffee with chopped hazelnuts covered with white chocolate…mmmmm.

      Comment by asha on 3/30/08 at 12:40 pm #
    16. I think my ideal candy bar would consist of a soft component like gianduja, caramel with sea salt, or fluffy nougat with a hint of orange blossom water; and a crispy or crunchy component like a feuillantine or rice krispies layer, or something like cocoa nibs or chopped espresso beans. And it’s a dark chocolate bar for me!

      Haha, I can’t really make up my mind and want a bit of everything. Anyway, thanks for sharing the candy bars. That is A LOT of candy! :O

    18. I think I would like a coconut flavored marshallow bar with nuts covered in dark chocolate and crushed chick-o-stix.

      Comment by Nick Morey on 3/30/08 at 12:46 pm #
    19. Hands down: Cadbury’s Double Decker bar.

      Almost perfect. I would tweak it with dark chocolate (which may exist…Double Decker Dark?)

      Everytime I hit London, its the first thing I do.

      Comment by Laura Perlman on 3/30/08 at 12:47 pm #
    20. My ideal candy bar would an ice cream bar with elements reflecting the Snickers with Almonds (formerly the Mars Bar in the US) but with dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. I love the Snickers ice cream bar, but it is too peanut-y.

      Comment by Shawn on 3/30/08 at 12:47 pm #
    21. I really love Pay Day bars. I think they’re my favorite all-time bar!

    23. i’d like a reese’s with a candy coating of some sort because they tend to be a bit messy - but otherwise peanut butter cups are the greatest candy bars ever made

      Comment by christopher h on 3/30/08 at 12:54 pm #
    24. It would start with Dark chocolate outer coating with delicious whipped/mousse caramel and coffee inside. Maybe bits of raisins to give it texture.

      Comment by Yolanda on 3/30/08 at 12:59 pm #
    25. My ideal candy bar?  Something with lots of crunchy nuts - preferrably almonds - caramel, toffee, nougat, and chocolate.  Maybe some peanut butter thrown in - you know, to make it kind of healthy.  Oh, and some soft, chocolate filling.

      Comment by Melissa on 3/30/08 at 1:05 pm #
    26. The ideal candy bar for me would have Cadbury chocolate(it is so creamy and smooth),dried cranberries,and pecans.YUMMY!

      Comment by Amy on 3/30/08 at 1:08 pm #
    27. I’d love to see something like the old Marathon bar. Chewy caramel is good!

      Crunchy sensation with chocolate is a fav Whatchamacalit or Butterfinger.

    28. Baby Ruth in dark chocolate.  Yum.

      Comment by Karen on 3/30/08 at 1:15 pm #
    29. MMMM CHOCOLATE- My ideal candy bar would be anything with a chocolate cookie, marshmallow, caramel and milk chocolate. Love Frozen-Snickers,KitKat, Reese’s PB Cups.

      Comment by Gina on 3/30/08 at 1:16 pm #
    30. I love the Take 5 candy bars, except for maybe a little bit more caramel.

      Comment by Janea Carrell on 3/30/08 at 1:21 pm #
    31. Paydays have always been my favorite but if they would just cover it in milk chocolate it would be devine.

      Comment by Nora Scott-Platt on 3/30/08 at 1:24 pm #
    32. I’d love to see a dark choc version of a cadbury egg. My favorite bar candies have always been suff with Marzipan or almond joy and snickers. I’d like to see a chocolate bar with lots of fruit chunks in it too.



      Comment by barbara rappaport on 3/30/08 at 1:26 pm #
    33. My New favorite would be…Hard Peanut Butter on the outside with caramel and chocolate center.

      Comment by Shelba Lanham on 3/30/08 at 1:28 pm #
    34. My ideal candy bar is Germany’s Ritter Sport Chocolate with Butter Biscuit.  It’s a delicious silky milk chocolate, better than any I’ve had in the U.S. and it enrobes a crispy shortbread type cookie, that tastes full of butter.  The brand is called Sport, I’m guessing because their perfectly square shape makes them ideal post-sporting snacks?  Anyway, they are delicious.  If you haven’t tried this brand yet, it’s highly recommended.  They also have a bunch of interesting flavors such as cappuccino, etc.  Sort of hard to find, but we can find them out here okay in Nebraska.

      Comment by April in CT on 3/30/08 at 1:53 pm #
    37. My ideal candy bar would be a Zagnut bar enrobed in milk chocolate. (This would be a lot like a Clark bar, I guess, but it would still have the coconut layer that coats the Zagnut bar under the chocolate.) Yum! smile

      Comment by Chris on 3/30/08 at 1:54 pm #
    38. I love caramel and chocolate, so Caramello by Cadbury is my favorite!

      Comment by Vicki Wurgler on 3/30/08 at 2:03 pm #
    39. Sorry, I’m a purist (or really boring) I just like my plain old Kit Kat.
      But I have to say, when they made the Big Kat, it just didn’t taste the same.  Same goes with the Nestle Crunch, the Bunch o’Crunch they sell at movie theaters tastes awful.  The Crunch or Hershey’s Krackel is my 2nd favorite candy.  smile

      Comment by Leslie on 3/30/08 at 2:32 pm #
    40. I would LOVE to see the ORIGINAL MARS BAR of the 50’s and 60’s brought back.
      Todays mars bar just doesnt have the same taste…I imagine it is because of the switch from sugar to high fructose corn syrup….BRING BACK THE REAL STUFF..BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL MARS BAR..AND ON A SEPERATE RANT…BRING BACK ORIGINAL OVALTINE TOO!!!!!

      Comment by Rosemary L on 3/30/08 at 2:41 pm #
    41. So many comments already.
      My ideal candy bar would have crystallized ginger and cranberry pieces in dark chocolate in the top layer and that would be over a layer of pecans.  Sort of poured over the pecans so the chocolate melts down into them and holds it all together. 
      Oh yes.

    42. Snickers is the best and always will be

      Comment by Brian Klein on 3/30/08 at 2:49 pm #
    43. My ideal chocolate bar would be something like a 5th Avenue, but with really good chocolate. I love the slightly salty, not-too-sweet filling in the 5th Avenue bar better than Butterfinger.

      Or! Something like torrone covered in dark chocolate. Yum!

      Comment by April on 3/30/08 at 2:55 pm #
    44. It haunts me - I remember a candy bar from when I was a boy but I don’t remember the name.  It had dark chocolate, mint and milk chocolate with a peanut butter layer.  It was heavenly and I wish I could find it.

      Darn, now I’m hungry.  What’s in the kitchen?

      Reese’s pieces are my favorite candy of the moment.  Sees and Esther PRice if we’re getting hoity toity.

      Comment by bob keck on 3/30/08 at 3:19 pm #
    45. I love those caramel covered marshmallows rolled in rice krispies.  Made with really gooey caramel. Usually I have to make them myself.

      Comment by Maureen on 3/30/08 at 3:20 pm #
    46. My ideal candy bar would be segmented chocolate squares. Each square would have a different “addition”. One would have mint, another chopped peanuts, caramel, cookie crunch, coconut, marshmellow and so on. You get the idea. That way I could have a little of everything I like in ONE BAR! WooHoo!!

      Comment by Carol on 3/30/08 at 3:22 pm #
    47. This could result in epic fail, but I’d love to see something with a crushed graham cracker or gingersnap base, with a layer of pumpkin pie filling type substance, and topped with fluffy marshmallow. Not sure if robing it in chocolate would put it over the top, but I’m not sure how else to prevent it dissolving into an abrasive sticky goo pile as soon as you unwrap it.

    51. Give me a candy bar with a cookie base. A third chocolate marshmallow, a third vanilla marshmallow and the last third strawberry. Then cover with white chocolate. Like a Neapolitan candy bar.

    53. For me, I finish a candy bar unsatisfied unless I have the perfect balance of salt and sweet and creamy balanced along with crunchy and chewy…so what candy bar meets all of these requirements you ask…my absolute favorite, Baby Ruth!!!!

      Comment by Beth on 3/30/08 at 3:50 pm #
    54. I loved the Marathon Bar! Bring it back in 3 types, Dark, Milk, and White!

      Comment by Michael Wayne on 3/30/08 at 4:00 pm #
    55. My ideal candy bar would be a Caramilk bar—but after adding a smooth, gooey, creamy peanut butter taste inside.

      And to make it even more ideal, have a great rich flavor—but with no calories.

      Comment by Kevin on 3/30/08 at 4:14 pm #
    56. My ideal candy bar is actually not in bar form, it’s an M&M;. It is almond at the center, surrounded by a layer of peanut butter, surrounded by a layer of dark chocolate, with a candy coated shell. YUM.

      Comment by Emily A. on 3/30/08 at 4:18 pm #
    57. I would like almonds,peanuts,and cashew nuts surrounded by a toffee fluff and dipped in white chocolate and the top then dunked in dark chocolate.

    58. Oh Henry. Totally awesome.

      Comment by Karin on 3/30/08 at 4:24 pm #
    59. My favorite candy bar would be a See’s Bourdex filling with a toffee crunch inside.

      Comment by Karen Chase on 3/30/08 at 4:29 pm #
    60. My ideal candy bar… a good combination of coffee and chocolate flavors, a good contrast of textures going on… perhaps some roasted salted nuts. For one in existence already, that means Twix Java!  Maybe combine it with a Snickers Almond. Mmmmm.

      Comment by Emily Huang on 3/30/08 at 4:32 pm #

    62. I am not sure if I would change something or not, I really like both the 3 musketeers and mars bars (its the nougat!) although I would love it if they made them vegan, but that is really stretching it!

      Comment by Kathleen on 3/30/08 at 4:36 pm #
    63. I read your blog almost every day but rarely comment, only I must because it’s horribly embarrassing that *this* is sounding like my ideal candy bar. I know my nearest store doesn’t have it, as one would be home with me by now if it did.

      Comment by calamar on 3/30/08 at 4:37 pm #
    64. Chocolate coating with chocolate buttercreme inside.

      Comment by David Guss on 3/30/08 at 4:38 pm #
    65. My all time favorite candy bar would have to be a light mix of hazlenuts with salted peanuts and almonds, set in a layer of caramel, all encased in a dark chocolate coating.

      Comment by Andrew on 3/30/08 at 4:40 pm #

      Comment by Gregory on 3/30/08 at 4:43 pm #
    68. My ultimate candy bar would have a dark chocolate outside, and a layer of hazelnuts and a layer of nutella on the inside.

      Comment by Blondie on 3/30/08 at 4:44 pm #
    69. My perfect candy bar would be the old school Milky Way before they started messing with the caramel. Now with the “MORE/BETTER/CHEWIER (etc)” caramel, they taste vaguely rubbery, which ruins the malted flavor of the nougat. Why mess with a good thing?

      Comment by Alyssa on 3/30/08 at 4:50 pm #
    70. My favorite candy is a dark chocolate peanut butter cup. YUM!

      Comment by Sara on 3/30/08 at 4:53 pm #
    71. My ideal candy bar is the one and only delishous snickers .Love it would love to be the one chosen for a smple case

      Comment by judy Bush on 3/30/08 at 5:02 pm #
    72. My ideal candy bar would definitely have dark chocolate in it. And that’s it. Just acres and acres of dark chocolate.

      Ok, something salty would be good too, like maybe bacon.

      Mmm. bacon and chocolate. Now that would be interesting.

      And if not bacon, almonds. Love me some almonds.

      Comment by Jewels on 3/30/08 at 5:03 pm #
    73. A number of folks have already mentioned my ideal candy bar: a cookies n’ cream Twix. Seriously, who do I talk to about getting this back?

      Comment by brix11 on 3/30/08 at 5:04 pm #
    74. Cadbury’s Wunderbar is a pretty great combination of crunchy peanut butter and caramel with milk chocolate (usually I prefer dark chocolate but there’s something about this mix!)

      Comment by Mellisa on 3/30/08 at 5:23 pm #
    75. My ideal candybar would be with white chocolate, I know there are not many lovers out there. But Milka has a choclate bar (one of the big ones) with milk, dark, and white chocolate which is one of my favorites. So white chocolate enrobed with dark, and a salty caramel center, that would be a great bar for me, like a double dipped Rollo

      Comment by Franziska on 3/30/08 at 5:24 pm #
    76. I also like Take 5, but actually would prefer there be no peanuts, because as the old commercial goes, sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t…
      Well I don’t, sometimes, so yeah :o)
      Perhaps, Take 4 have you…
      Well maybe add butter toffee in place of the peanuts and keep it Take 5, yeah that sounds gooood…

      Comment by Jason on 3/30/08 at 5:29 pm #
    77. I love almost any kind of candy including chocolate, but Twix is the best as far as I’m concerned, I love the cookies inside. Thanks for the chance to win

      Comment by Barbara McCrea on 3/30/08 at 5:34 pm #
    78. I don’t know who made it, but my ideal candy bar was a Nestle Quik flavored chewy chocolate bar.It was awsome!!! It was discontinued years ago. Wahhh!!!! I’m hoping the Rocky Road bar comes out soon, it sound great.

      Comment by Meghan on 3/30/08 at 5:34 pm #
    79. Let’s see. My ideal candy bar does not exist that I know of, but it would combine aspects of existing yummy candy bars.  Have you ever heard of Bit of Honey? Well, I think that it would be delicious if it was in a bar form and coated with dark chocolate..mmm…

    80. Anything chocolate.

      Comment by Dale on 3/30/08 at 5:50 pm #
    81. I also think a decadent Take 5 would be my ideal.  Whole wheat pretzel, salted caramel, pecans or pistachios (sp?) and real dark chocolate…maybe some toffee in there, too.

      Comment by Kimberly on 3/30/08 at 5:58 pm #
    82. oh my gosh these rockin road snickers sound like the absolute perfect candy bar. ive always pictured the perfect bar as something like a marshmallow pinwheel with almonds on top covered in dark chocolate. mmm that sounds sooo delicious.

      Comment by Katie on 3/30/08 at 6:01 pm #
    83. Let’s see… one layer of cookie crumble, then peanut butter, then brownie, wafers, and the whole thing coated with chocolate… with m&m;‘s on top. :D

      Comment by Caroline Morin on 3/30/08 at 6:09 pm #
    84. Many moons ago, I used to get a candy bar at school that was called “Big Time” It was chocolate, caramel and nuts, I believe. I would love to have one today to see if it’s anywhere near as good as I thought it was.
      But I would love to try out the Snickers bar also.

      Comment by Shirley Jones on 3/30/08 at 6:12 pm #
    85. When I know For Sure that I am about to die, I will eat Snickers until I want no more.  I am diabetic and, fortunately, I can cheat a lot, but I must exercise to lower my blood sugar after I cheat, and I have excellent A1C tests/
      A Snickers bar is always a treat, and many people are not as fortunate as I.
      I repeat, however, that when I know For Sure that I am about to die…..give me Snickers until I want no more.    :0)

      Comment by Patricia on 3/30/08 at 6:24 pm #
    86. Yes, Sky Bar was one of my favorite candies. Being able to have 4 different flavor in one was so great. But I have this strong addiction to Nutella. I would eat that with everything. Sky Bar’s chocolate combine with Nutella. =D

    87. my ideal candy bar is one that already exists and it is the special dark hershey’s chocolate.

      Comment by janet lindsey on 3/30/08 at 6:32 pm #
    88. a dark chocolate ferrero rocher..yummm

      Comment by Lia on 3/30/08 at 6:36 pm #
    89. peanut butter, nuts, pretzel, nougat, chocolate, crisps, and i really think malted milk would go really good in a candy bar.
      i don’t know of any candy bars that have done it before. they should though.

      or maybe they should make a peanut butter and marshmallow nougat bar, like a fluffernutter. but then it will be all sweet, and the bread won’t make it weird.
      or a PB&J;bar. (i’m sure they’ve done that before though)

      there’s a lot of good things they could make.

      they should make reeses fast breaks with banana nougat and sell it as the elvis bar.
      they had the elvis cup, and this sounds like it would taste way better.


      Comment by Shane on 3/30/08 at 6:38 pm #
    90. My ideal candy bar would have macadamia nuts and raisins mixed with carmal, encased in dark dark chocolate.

      Comment by Rhonda on 3/30/08 at 7:00 pm #
    91. I love Twix. It’s a cookie, it’s chocolate, and there’s just enough caramel to create a depth of flavor. Awesome.

      Comment by Andy on 3/30/08 at 7:03 pm #
    92. My favorite chocolate bar of all time is the Nielson Crispy Crunch. I don’t have them very often, but when I do they sure hit the spot.

      Comment by G Smith on 3/30/08 at 7:24 pm #
    93. I am a big fan of candy in general, though I’m trying to cut down (I tend to go for quality over quantity these days.) My all-time favorites include dark chocolate with orange, and my current favorite is the Ghirardelli Intense Dark Citrus Sunset bar—the bits of chewy candied orange peel and crispy toffee perfectly accent the dark chocolate.

      The Snickers Rockin? Nut Road Bar sounds great, and like something I would really enjoy—thanks for the offer!

      Comment by geekbearinggifts on 3/30/08 at 7:38 pm #
    94. Mmm, dark chocolate twix although that java twix sounds awesome.  All candy is great though.  grin

      Comment by Kasey on 3/30/08 at 8:05 pm #
    95. i love the peanut butter snickers! i remember it from when i was tiny, and then all of a sudden it was gone. now they recently came out with the peanut butter crunch snickers, or something like that and its got an orange wrapper like that old one, but its not the same at all! i miss the pb snickers!

      Comment by rachel on 3/30/08 at 8:58 pm #
    96. Unfortunately I haven’t have time to read all the candy bar ideas posted so far.

      A few years ago I came up with what I thought would be my ideal candy bar, but now I’m having trouble remembering all the details.

      The crux of it is “marbits,” those crunchy (not pliable at all—they turn to powder when crushed) marshmallows as in Lucky Charms cereal or instant hot cocoa mixes. Combine a bunch of those (or even a continuous marbit slab) with carmel and enrobe with chocolate.

      I’ve described this to several people and, alas, nobody but me thinks it sounds good.

    97. mmmmmm Mounds, coconut and milk chocolate, what could be better smile

      Comment by Cathie on 3/30/08 at 9:47 pm #
    98. Frozen 3 Musketeers is the best!

      Comment by JRG on 3/31/08 at 12:02 am #
    99. Chocolate and peanut butter. Perfect just the way it is!

      Comment by Kari Follett on 3/31/08 at 12:16 am #
    100. My favorite candy bar is Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I think they could be improved upon by making the chocolate a little thicker.

      Comment by Susan Chester on 3/31/08 at 1:20 am #
    101. Twix is my favourite but one that tastes like java, that would be out of this world.

      Comment by David on 3/31/08 at 1:21 am #
    102. I love anything chocolate and mint.  One of the best was a small bar (actually was round, but why be fussy?) that I used to find in special displays.  Dark chocolate and mint cream—can’t remember the name though, probably a very long senior moment!

      Comment by Carol Gowett on 3/31/08 at 1:45 am #
    103. My ultimate candy bar would contain varying amounts of these awesome ingredients:

      - marshmallow
      - caramel
      - peanuts
      - milk chocolate
      - and some white chocolate drizzles, just for good measure!

      Comment by Trina on 3/31/08 at 1:54 am #
    104. I like the plain snickers as my ideal candy bar.

      Comment by Patricia Treskovich on 3/31/08 at 1:54 am #
    105. I’m still partial to a plain old Hershey bar!

    106. ZERO

      Comment by Mary on 3/31/08 at 2:08 am #
    107. My ideal candy bar would have nougat, marshmallow and mint in a dark chocolate coating.

    108. snickers in a dark chocolate

      Comment by david basile on 3/31/08 at 2:20 am #
    109. My ideal chocolate bar would be more like melt in your mouth fudge.

      Comment by Kathy Scott on 3/31/08 at 2:37 am #
    110. One of my favorite candy bars ever was the Hershey’s Bar None - a cocoa wafer, chocolate filling, peanuts and a milk chocolate coating. It was crispy and light, with a smooth chocolate coating. I sure wish Hershey would make them again.

      Comment by Amy on 3/31/08 at 2:37 am #
    111. Twix

      Comment by tim brown on 3/31/08 at 2:40 am #
    112. There has never been a better candy than a Three Musketeers bar. Can’t help it, that is my ideal. They could make the bars 1 1/2 times larger than it currently is. One bite and I melt and transfer myself to anywhere in the world I want to be. The taste lingers too.

      Comment by Linda Muzereus on 3/31/08 at 2:45 am #
    113. My ideal bar would have coffee, and caramel, and (very) dark chocolate.

      Comment by Alexandra on 3/31/08 at 2:55 am #
    114. cross a payday and turkish taffy

      Comment by Nat Stevens on 3/31/08 at 3:00 am #
    115. I am in love with the Twix PB bar.  Just enough peanut butter and chocolate with a cookie in there too.  Delicious!

      Comment by Chloe on 3/31/08 at 3:00 am #
    116. My ideal candy bar would be a Ferrero Rocher in a Jumbo Kit Kat or Twix form. Bonus points if they could make a decadent mint version.

      Comment by Lisa on 3/31/08 at 3:00 am #
    117. My favorite candy bar would be a kosher salted pretzel with a very light golden caramel (not burnt) layber and toffee candy pieces sprinkled all over, then covered in high quality milk chocolate.

      Comment by Cindy Angelo on 3/31/08 at 3:04 am #
    118. I think my perfect candy bar would be a mix of sea salt carmel—really good quality decadent with real butter flavor with semisweet sharffenberger.  Yum—the idea!

      Comment by Mary on 3/31/08 at 3:05 am #
    119. My “ideal” candy bar would be something with dark chocolate, peanut butter, caramel (but not too sweet), a little salty something wethere it was peanuts or pretzle and a little coffee flavor in the chocolate. Not too much coffee, but just enough to impart a little smokyness to the chocolate.

      Comment by sabrina on 3/31/08 at 3:10 am #
    120. The best candy bar EVER was the Butternut bar, discontinued years ago when the manufacturer was sold to another candy company. Something like today’s Snickers, but with more chocolate and nuts, less caramel. INCREDIBLE summertime treat when thrown in the freezer for a few hours before eating. You just had to be sure that you had strong teeth!

      Comment by Harry Kaufman on 3/31/08 at 3:13 am #
    121. the ideal candy bar for me is milk chocolate ,nuts,and caramel.

      Comment by Vicky Boackle on 3/31/08 at 3:17 am #
    122. My ideal candy bar would be the BonBonBar Single Malt Scotch bar reviewed on Feb. 7. Booze, caramel, chocolate, and salt? Yes, please! I haven’t tried it yet though. I want to finish some other premium chocolate I have in my cabinets before I spend $5 on a candy bar.

      Comment by Emily on 3/31/08 at 3:22 am #
    123. Whatchamacallits.

      I know, I know…I could choose any wonderful candy, the beautiful gourmet chocolate bars by Neuhaus or Vosges…but I always end up going back to my favorite candy bar from when I was a kid.

      Comment by Steff on 3/31/08 at 3:25 am #
    124. Mine is very simple. A Hershey Kiss. When I crave chocolate. A Kiss satisfies it.

      Comment by Jean P on 3/31/08 at 3:38 am #
    125. My ideal candy bar is one LOADED w/ cocoa chocolate and coconut!- Oh yeh- and that’s weight controling and good for me (am I asking too much???).

      Comment by Denyse on 3/31/08 at 3:38 am #
    126. It should have “NEVER” gone away, ....the Forever Yours candy bar, The dutch chocolate was superb.

      Comment by arthur paul lambert on 3/31/08 at 3:43 am #
    127. I love Twix peanut butter

      Comment by Rebecca Snodgrass on 3/31/08 at 3:43 am #
    128. I’m rather fond of Dove chocolate, especially dark but all of it is good. Maybe Dove milk chocolate and perhaps a hazelnut cream center, or perhaps kind of a peanut butter and pretzel thing with either Dove light or dark chocolate in it.

      Comment by Chris S. on 3/31/08 at 3:51 am #
    129. snickers is #1. so let it be written.

    130. snickers is #1

      Comment by mike anderson on 3/31/08 at 3:55 am #
    131. My favorite bar was the 7-Up. It had seven kinds of candy (nut, carmel, fudge, jellied, nougat, etc.) all covered in chocolate. Since that has been discontinued, my current favorite is the salted nut bar; I like the salt and sweet and crunch together.

      Comment by Dorothy Barborek on 3/31/08 at 3:59 am #
    132. To me the best candy bar is the simplest.  Just give me a good old milk chocolate bar.

      Comment by Kevin on 3/31/08 at 4:02 am #
    133. My ideal candy bar would be milk chocolate (I’m a kid at heart), wafers filled with hazelnut paste, covered with a layer of fudgey chocolate studded with rice crispies. Oh it would be so tasty! smile

      Comment by Kendra on 3/31/08 at 4:06 am #
    134. Allot is good, but best is something from Europe, since the chocolate there is more “real”.
      Also having the bar frozen is good.
      Like a frozen Mars, Snickers or Twix. Yum yum! =D

      Comment by Stijn on 3/31/08 at 4:06 am #
    135. I would love a bar with a great tasting shortbread base (like a Lorna Doone cookie), and a chocolate coating with toffee bits on it.

      Comment by Heather on 3/31/08 at 4:09 am #
    136. I would say a Snickers with a hard shell like on M&M;‘s

      Comment by Kevin Brokes on 3/31/08 at 4:22 am #
    137. My ideal candy bar would have nougat, marshmallow, caramel, coconut, crispy wafers, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate chips, and a side of cotton candy.

      Comment by Tiffany on 3/31/08 at 4:22 am #
    138. Almond Joy’s are my ideal candy, dark chocolate, coconut and almonds, delicious. :3

      Comment by sherry pincus on 3/31/08 at 4:27 am #
    140. I love Rocky Road Ice Cream so i definetly would enjoy the Snickers Rocking Nut Road Bar :]

      Comment by Xuan on 3/31/08 at 4:40 am #
    141. I love anything with chocolate—but the best to me so far is a mounds or kit kat—-can you tell I am not super picky! My ideal is chocolate, creamy, small amount of crunch to the bite.

      Comment by amy mayer on 3/31/08 at 4:43 am #
    142. My favorite candy bar is the crunchy snickers. I would love to try the new Snickers bar!

      Comment by carrie on 3/31/08 at 4:49 am #
    143. I’d love a fluffernutter type bar- maybe a cookie layer and then peanutbutter and marshmallow layers.. all covered in chocolate of course… Yum.. Although I do love a classic Snickers bar too!

      Comment by Emily on 3/31/08 at 4:50 am #
    144. a dark choc. butterfinger!

      Comment by micky on 3/31/08 at 5:01 am #
    145. For me, it’s all about the sweet/salty combo. So my perfect bar would start have a shortbread base with salted caramel, peanuts and really good quality milk chocolate to cover the whole thing.

      Comment by Adrien on 3/31/08 at 5:02 am #
    146. i love love love the butterfinger criisp bar, why, well the cream of course!  with the ability to use the cream in a wafer context, nestle has created a new venue for their candy.  you can say what you want, but the mix of wafer, choc and butterfinger is grand.

      please send me candy i love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Comment by jeremy krauss on 3/31/08 at 5:05 am #
    147. I’d love a layered cookie dough coconut combo covered in milk chocolate!

      Comment by Ian on 3/31/08 at 5:05 am #
    148. My ideal candy bar would be reeses peanut butter cups with twice as much peanut butter, a little less sweet tasting, and some crushed up pretzle crumbs on the bottom.

      Comment by Jason on 3/31/08 at 5:10 am #
    149. A sugar free dark chocolate bar with nuts and caramel!

      Comment by Diane Westerbeek on 3/31/08 at 5:11 am #
    150. Take 5, with the addition of marshmallow (that would make it Take 6?).

      Comment by Stacy on 3/31/08 at 5:32 am #
    151. My ideal candy bar would be high quality marshmellow, caramel and salty pretzels covered in milk chocolate, yummy!

      Comment by Julia Magrath on 3/31/08 at 5:33 am #
    152. Snickers Almond - w/dark chocolate

      Comment by Vickie on 3/31/08 at 5:39 am #
    153. I think my ideal candy bar is either a box of Toffifay or Snickers (original).  Basically anything with caramel, chocolate and nuts is my idea of a good time.

      Comment by Joanne on 3/31/08 at 6:01 am #
    154. I would have to say that my ideal candy bar would be a good amount of slightly salty butterscotch caramel on top of a thinner layer of toasted coconut along with a bit of chopped macadamia nuts. This would all be covered in a layer of good quality white chocolate.

      Thanks for the chance at winning!

      Comment by Robert on 3/31/08 at 6:02 am #
    155. Oh man, the perfect bar….

      Lets start with the Lake Champlain Dark Chocolate bar filled with Jamaican Rum Caramel as that is currently probably my favorite. Add to that extra salty pretzel bits and maybe a wafer/peanut butter layer or two from a Little Debbie Nutty Bar.

      So pretty much it’s an ultra decadent Take 5, which is pretty un-original considering the original post, but hey, i can’t help it.

      So the layer of wafer/PB followed topped by extra salty pretzel bits, slathered by an overly generous portion of the Jamaican Rum caramel all encased in the Lake Champlain Dark Chocolate used in the original Caramel Bar and then lightly sprinkeled with sea salt.

      I can’t think of much better than that really.

      Comment by Michael on 3/31/08 at 6:03 am #
    156. My ideal candy bar is pure quality dark chocolate

      Comment by Linda Lansford on 3/31/08 at 6:11 am #
    157. My ideal candy bar already exists: the Milky Way Midnight. I love everything about it.

      Comment by Ginny on 3/31/08 at 6:12 am #
    158. The perfect candy bar would be an optimized version of the KitKat White Chunky Bar. Fil it with caramel and we have a sure win!

      Comment by Yummie on 3/31/08 at 6:17 am #
    159. my ideal candy bar used to exist but as far as I know doesn’t anymore
      I’ve fallen in love, head over heals love with the Mallo Cup and I read on their website that there used to be a Fluffernutter version (peanut butter & marshmallow). In fact, a crunchy peanut butter (with nutty pieces) and marshmallow and caramel (ala See’s Scotchmallow, my favorite individual candy) would rock my world.

      Comment by Debe on 3/31/08 at 6:21 am #
    160. My ideal candy bar is a Three Muskateers. Its perfect as is but maybe try adding some nuts to mix it up a little.

      Comment by Joseph Roberts on 3/31/08 at 6:37 am #
    161. Peanuts, cashews, and almonds covered in caramel and milk chocolate, with a side of peanut butter for dipping.

      Comment by Rachael on 3/31/08 at 6:40 am #
    162. My IDEAL candy bar would have to be this:

      not too big…because the flavors will be rich enough to be satisfying with not too large a size. the bar would have a nice chocolate cookie base layer (like the flavor of an oreo) with peanut butter mousse and caramel layed on top. finally, the bar would be covered in a dark chocolate (not too bitter)

      Comment by Leah on 3/31/08 at 6:42 am #
    163. My ideal candy bar is something with milk chocolate, nougat, nuts or pretzels (something crunchy) and some caramel and peanut butter.

      Comment by Kelly Lake on 3/31/08 at 6:43 am #
    164. I must admit, my very favorite candy bar is the British/Canadian Crunchie bar.  It is sponge toffee wrapped in milk chocolate, there is nothing else quite like it.  Very sweet, to the point, that when you are finished one bar you feel like your teeth hurt sweet. lol.  thanks for the chance.

      Comment by Tammy on 3/31/08 at 6:43 am #
    165. Happy Monday, Unfortunately, with my sweet tooth, I would love to come home and find the goodies that you did in my kitchen. I like the sound of your most decadent candy bar, but I prefer milk chocolate! Please enter me in your fabulous drawing. Thanks very much…..Cindi

    168. I am a lifelong fan of the Whatchamacallit.  Can’t find those ANYWHERE anymore, except at a couple of out of the way Mom and Pop gas stations around here.

      Comment by Melanie on 3/31/08 at 7:24 am #
    169. Hi, my ideal candy bar would be similar to the one that was out in the 80’s, I don’t remember the name of it, but it had something to do with a CowPie.  It was marshmellow, pecans, caramel all covered in chocolate, and looked like a Cow Pie!  It was sooooo good, the inside was not hard, but soft. I wish they would come back!

      Comment by Lisa Fosses on 3/31/08 at 7:30 am #
    171. I’ve gotta say… I don’t have a fav candy bar… it all depends on the mood, kinda like a craving for certain foods or drinks.

      However, one of my favorite creations I’ve done before is done with the following:

      Toasted pistachios
      Dried cherries
      Dark chocolate

      This combination forms a great and somewhat healthy snack that disappeared instantly whenever I had guests by.  If this could be a candy bar, I’d likely purchase boatloads.

      Comment by Derrick on 3/31/08 at 7:38 am #
    172. My all-time favorite bar was the Marathon.  Just a braid of caramel covered in chocolate, 12 inches long!  I miss them…I don’t know if I would love them as much now as I did when I was a kid, but since they no longer exist, I guess I’ll never know. :-(

      Comment by Min on 3/31/08 at 7:40 am #
    173. My ideal candy bar is any chocoate with caramel and lots of nuts!  Ok.. now I’m hungry lol

      Comment by Huguette E. on 3/31/08 at 7:41 am #
    174. i’d like a shortbread cookie base (more ritter sport than twix), caramel, then cashews, covered with chocolate.

      Comment by Lisa on 3/31/08 at 7:41 am #
    175. Either something on the idea of a twix where the cookie base was an oreo wafer, and the caramel was Reese’s pb—covered in good dk chocolate.
      Or a snickers w/ dk choc., almonds and a not fake tasting maple nougat.

      Comment by Meredith on 3/31/08 at 8:00 am #
    176. Nothing brings out the masses like free candy!
        I think a peanut butter bar with a thick coat of chocolate and some marshmallows sprinkled around inside would be pretty yummy. Sort of like a fluffernutter.

      Comment by KS on 3/31/08 at 8:03 am #
    177. OK, my ideal candy bar is center of burnt caramel filled with a combination of miniature peanut butter cups, pretzel nuggets and whole roast almonds, covered in milk chocolate.  Sort of a candy bar version of Ben & Jerry’s Everything But The Kitchen Sink ice cream.

      Comment by Joni Huffman on 3/31/08 at 8:03 am #
    178. I love the Snickers bar === just need to add a bit more nougat…. The minis are just wonderful~~

      I have the dark chocolate one that is just waiting for me to eat it :o)

      Comment by Denise B. on 3/31/08 at 8:08 am #
    180. Wow that is a lot of chocolate to send to one person. Thank you for being so generous to your readers. Snickers is really my ideal but instead of peanuts I would love to have hazelnuts in it. So nougat, caramel, hazelnuts, with a dark chocolate coating. I suppose I could live with milk chocolate but dark chocolate is my favorite.


      Comment by Elisabeth Perez on 3/31/08 at 8:12 am #
    181. My ideal candy bar would be one whole candy bar divided in two. For me 1/2 Reese’s peanut butter and 1/2 Snickers.  You can take one bite from one end and turn it around and get a whole different experience.

      Comment by Michelle Bryan on 3/31/08 at 8:15 am #
    182. I love Twix and Kit Kat, so if they could make a Kit Kat, but in between layers of the cookie, there would be caramel and chocolate instead of just chocolate.. that’d be amazing

    183. My all time favorite candy bar is the Snickers bar! Thanks! This would be awesome to win!

    184. Boy, what a toughie!  My ideal would be the See’s Scotchmallow, with candied almonds in it.  And, in a truly ideal world, it would provide my daily requirement of fiber and vitamins, and have a negative calorie load, meaning just to eat it would be like spending 20 minutes on the treadmill.  Hey, I can dream!  grin

      You rock, Cybele!  Thanks for trying all this stuff, so we don’t have to!

    185. i would love some sort of a pecan pie bar.  this is impossible but would be so good.  pecan pie filling, chunks of pecans and pie crust, and chocolate on the outside.

    186. My ideal chocolate bar would be similar to a Sky bar:

      The chocolate would be a high quality semisweet dark so as not to detract from the fillings like milk chocolate tends to. It would be split up into three sections (or two side by side rows of three if it were a larger bar a la caramello). The first filling would be a creamy truffle center, similar to the taste and texture of a Lindor truffle, but a little lighter and less rich like a mousse. The second filling would be salted caramel, liquid but not runny. The third filling would be a high quality marshmallow, springy and not too sweet. I think I’d like that order so it isn’t too cloying or too rich to enjoy all at once, if you are so inclined smile

    188. Ideal candy bar is a tough call. Right now I’m thinking of something like a salt caramel with a cookie or pretzle crunch to go with it and a layer of Reeses peanut butter.

    189. Hmm, my ideal candy bar would be a cookie base (similar to the Ritter sport cookie base) and a creamy Nutella topping enrobed in good quality milk chocolate.

    190. My ideal candy bar would be a better version of the S’Mores bar.  It’s a great idea, but just isn’t as good as it should be.  Maybe a S’Mores bar made by Lindt?

    191. I love a Twix, but it seems to end too soon, so I guess my ideal would be a tricked out Twix, not larger or thicker but maybe with the addition of pecans pices….i love pecans and carmel….so your suggestion sounds fabulous…..someone needs to make that…..ooh, or, add a 3rd bar to the Twix package!

    192. When I was young (I’m 46 so be the judge as to when that was!) there was a candy bar that I LOVED. I believe it was just “Mars.” It was a thin marshmallow layer topped with a scattering of whole almonds (and maybe a thin layer of caramel). The whole thing was covered in smooth milk chocolate. It was my favorite candy bar and when it changed (I don’t know what it ultimately morphed into) I was very sad.

    193. Something with white chocolate, pretzel, and toffee.

    194. I’d like an updated 7-Up bar, but without the few segments that were filled with, I presume, phlegm.

      1. Chocolate cream
      2. Vanilla cream
      3. Caramel
      4. Coconut
      5. Orange cream
      6. Cinnamon (very light) nougat
      7. Marshmallow

    195. I can hardly pick an ideal candy bar since I love so many so much…

      But I think a candy bar that took a creamy nougat (like Milky Way) and then a toffee flavored caramel, with a dark chocolate enrobing, would be fantastic.

    196. My mouth is watering already! My ideal candy bar would have crunchy toffee bits, soft chewy caramel, some type of hybrid dark/milk chocolate, toasted almonds, and maybe a dash of sea salt on top to really set off the flavors.

    197. My ideal candy bar would be very good dark chocolate with almonds.

      Comment by Farah Khan on 3/31/08 at 9:08 am #
    198. I’d make mine with maybe a creamy maple nougat, toasted pecans, rich dark chocolate with white chocolate drizzled all over it. Yums!

    199. My ideal chocolate confectionary would be a Ferrero Rocher ball without the wafer layer.
