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 ideal candy bar?  hmmmmm…..
      I think a Heath Bar covered in dark chocolate with a sprinking of coconut in the chocolate!  YUM

      Comment by DeeAnn Szymanski on 3/31/08 at 9:33 am #
    2. Oooh, I think if I could make up my own candy bar it would be some sort of hefty PB graham base, with buttery delicious caramel on top and a crispy milk chocolate coating—Kind of like 100 grand and pb twix’s lovechild.

      And of course because it’s my ideal…the whole thing would be calorie and fat free! Muhahaha smile

    3. I would like Jade Tree gummies.

      Comment by Matthew on 3/31/08 at 9:59 am #
    4. I think nice variations of the Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll would be to add a few flavors to the nougat, like strawberry or cherry.  These nut rolls could include dried bits of strawberries or cherries.  Pearson’s could market these as a bar alternative to trail mix.

      Comment by Richard on 3/31/08 at 10:04 am #
    5. My ideal candy bar would be coconut enrobed in dark chocolate - something like a Mounds but a solid bar (not 2 pieces) and with nuts.  There just aren’t enough coconut based candy bars around!!

      Comment by Patti on 3/31/08 at 10:05 am #
    6. ooh, i think my ideal would be just the most delicious creamy perfect not-too-dark-and-bitter chocolate.  not sour and grainy or thick and sticky.  just smooth, creamy and perfect!  ...or, i’ll always love cadbury fruit & nut.

      Comment by Lindy on 3/31/08 at 10:12 am #
    7. Would like to try a snickers, which is my favorite candy, with almonds instead of peanuts.

      Comment by Randall Curran on 3/31/08 at 10:18 am #
    8. I would like either but the Twix Java a little more.  My favorite candy bar would be pretzels, caramel, hazelnuts and covered in milk and dark chocolate

    9. I like $100,000 bars; but I haven’t had a chocolate I didn’t like…

    10. Honestly, why mess with perfection? Reese’s Peanut butter cups rock! They can’t do any better than that!

      Comment by Mya Brooks on 3/31/08 at 10:41 am #
    11. Hmmm. I love crispy candy bars: Paydays and Twix and Kit Kat and, though I have not had one in years, the 100K bar that had those nice rice crispie things….

      But my ideal candy would be a dark chocolate version of Twix with a coffee flavored twist. I love chocolate with crispy ground up espresso beans.

      Comment by Mystique on 3/31/08 at 10:56 am #
    12. I don’t know how well these would go together - I guess I need a candy lab for that - but I have always loved the fluffy stuff in 3 Musketeers and the peanut butter in Reese’s peanut butter cups.  If those could be put together in a good milk chocolatey robe, I believe I would be very happy.  I love dark chocolate but believe milk chocolate would be better with those two tastes.  Yes, I have given a lot of thought to this.

      Comment by Mary Winkler on 3/31/08 at 11:08 am #
    13. My ideal candy bar would have to be a three musketeers bar with a cookie base underneath the nougat, sort of like the one in twix, with a layer of junior mints filling between the top of the nougat and the chocolate.

      Comment by Sarah on 3/31/08 at 11:26 am #
    14. A large stick of 70% Dark Chocolate with whole/halved hazelnuts and banana chips…!

      Comment by Johnny Lasley on 3/31/08 at 11:38 am #
    15. My ideal would be a Kit Kat bar with caramel and nuts added to the mixture.

      Comment by Peggy Miller on 3/31/08 at 12:00 pm #
    16. Hi
      My ideal candy bar would be:
      “Goo Gusher”
      It would be filled with 3 layers:
      1. delicous candy corn flavored gummi layer
      2. cotton candy fluff layer
      3. crunchy toffee layer
      and it would be covered in a rich dark chocolate.
      and dentists everywhere would worship me and build shrines in my name.

      Comment by Becky Rutherford on 3/31/08 at 12:09 pm #
    17. The perfect candy bar for me would have these four elements: Banana’s, peanut butter, dark chocolate, and marshmallows. Yummy!

      Comment by Mike on 3/31/08 at 12:11 pm #
    18. The Reeses Peanut Butter Cup is the ideal bar for many right now (including me), but my ideal bar outdoes the Reeses by far. It is (was) the High Noon bar. I used to get it way back in the 1960’s for a nickel. The peanut butter filling oozed peanut oil like the natural peanut butter and was way more peanutbuttery than Reeses. The chocolate was fine milk chocolate and it was a big slab of a bar. Long since discontinued, but I still dream about it now and then.

      Comment by RH on 3/31/08 at 12:15 pm #
    19. My favorite candy bar is almost perfect. I LOVE the watchamacalit. It’s got a little bit of everything except for a cookie. So I would probably add a thin layer of chocolate cookie underneath the rice crispy/peanut butter layer.

      Comment by Nycole Klein on 3/31/08 at 12:15 pm #
    20. The greatest candybar ever invented is still the great baby ruth with it’s delicious chocalate, chewy caramel, and crunchy peanuts.

      Comment by LeRoy Thomas on 3/31/08 at 12:28 pm #
    21. A Take 5 with mixed nuts would be the only thing better than a regular Take 5. Pretzel = ideal bar.

      Comment by LK on 3/31/08 at 12:31 pm #
    22. My ideal candy bar would simply be a candy bar version of the original Ferrero Rocher.  Oh, did I mention it would also be the size of my arm!??!  Oh…My…Gawd…

      I am seriously drooling in my keyboard.  I really want to try the Java Twix but am now intrigued by the Rockin Nut Road bar.

      Comment by Cricket on 3/31/08 at 12:40 pm #
    23. I love the Marathon bars that were discontinued far to soon. The long braided caramel covered in chocolate was a candy lover’s dream.

      Comment by Mark McLemore on 3/31/08 at 12:44 pm #
    24. I am not sure I have a favorite candy bar!!
      In no particular order here are some contenders.
      Take 5
      That would have to be my top 5.  But to pick just one would be hard.

      Comment by carla on 3/31/08 at 1:03 pm #
    25. The best candy bar ever made was the limited edition Orange Mounds bar. Coconut mixed with that sweet pineappley-orange…man that was candy nirvana.

      Comment by Erika on 3/31/08 at 1:12 pm #
    26. My ideal candy would have vanilla marshmellow and chewy carmel with pine nuts in it covered in dark chocolate w/ white chocolate sprinkles.  YUM!

      Comment by Jessica on 3/31/08 at 1:17 pm #
    27. I love the Milky Way Midnight. I would like it with a little more caramal and the chocolate shell twice as thick.

    28. I love the take 5, but would like it in dark!

      My ‘chocolate dream’ candy would be See’s truffle with a carmel base and covered in dark chocolate!

    31. Perfect candy bar:
      L half = Toblerone
      R half = Baby Ruth covered with dark chocolate with a tiny, secret gooey chocolate truffly blob in the middle

      Comment by Teresa on 3/31/08 at 2:17 pm #
    32. My ideal candy bar would be an Almond Joy with darker chocolate and more almonds.

    34. I have loved the taste of snickers candy bar for years.  It just taste so good..I don’t know why.  I even like them frozen!

      Comment by Carolyn Nedrow on 3/31/08 at 2:57 pm #
    35. My favorite candy bar is the Mounds bar since I am lover of coconut and dark chocolate. I would like to see a combination of the Almond Joy and the Mounds that has dark chocolate, coconut, almonds, and possibly a hint of coffee for a nice mocha taste.

      Comment by MassFoodie on 3/31/08 at 3:01 pm #
    36. Love the chocolate bars.

      Comment by Sylvia Belle on 3/31/08 at 3:03 pm #
    37. My favorite is the new dark chocolate snickers bar. It has all my favorite ingrediants: peanuts, rich dark chocolate, nugate, carmel and YUM !

      Comment by Sheila Wanner on 3/31/08 at 3:03 pm #
    38. wow. well i was working on one right off the bat, but having read your ideal candy bar (the elaborate twist on a take five), i think i found my match. sorry for just stealing yours but it does sound best. the mix of dark bitter chocolate with the salty/savory pretzel base and, of course, the sweet caramel. perhaps i would even add a bit of peanutbutter ribbon… okay i may be pushing it.

      Comment by Jeremy on 3/31/08 at 3:13 pm #
    39. i love dark chocolate with orange essence, and i’d love to see flavored chocolate with something added (puffed rice, etc).

      Comment by doe on 3/31/08 at 3:39 pm #
    40. Chocolate, nuts, pretzels and peanut butter.

      Comment by Terri D on 3/31/08 at 3:41 pm #
    41. My ideal candy would be a thick, dense vanilla nougat, covered with whole, fresh and lightly salted peanuts and then all enrobed in a thick coating of fudge chocolate. I would want the bar to be about the size and thickness of a Snickers, but come in two pieces - to share or save some for later.

      Comment by H.A. on 3/31/08 at 3:43 pm #
    42. Hey Cybele :D

      My ideal would totally be a pretzel base, with a hazelnut paste or nougat, marzipan and hazelnuts underneat milk chocolate.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. (I LOVE marzipan and chocolate and hazelnut! XD)

      Comment by Tindy on 3/31/08 at 3:44 pm #
    43. I like milky way as a favorite candy

      Comment by Mary Britt on 3/31/08 at 3:57 pm #
    44. For me, the perfect candy bar is a dark chocolate bar with a high cocoa percentage and just enough creaminess with finely ground coffee beans in the bar.  All this talk is making me very, very hungry!

      Comment by Kathryn Currier on 3/31/08 at 3:59 pm #
    45. Once upon a time I had a raspberry dark chocolate candy bar that was obviously made with real raspberries because it still had the seeds in it. It was so very good and I would love to find it again.

      Comment by Laura on 3/31/08 at 4:01 pm #
    46. My ideal candy bar would probably be a oreo cookie topped with pecans then dipped in a really good dark chocolate! it sounds so amazing that i might have to try to make it on my own!!

      Comment by Zahrah Khan on 3/31/08 at 4:33 pm #
    49. Since I am a chocoholic I would create a new candy bar with all of my favorite candy bars combined and call it the Snickers Surprise! I would have a bottom layer with whipped chocolate from 3 Musketeers, a middle layer of Peanut Butter from reeses Peanutbutter Cups, and a top layer of nougat mixed with cashews all sourrounded with your choice of a candybar of Dark Chocolate or Milk chocolate outer coating or both. A surprise in every bite! Now that’s a chocoholics dream come true!

      Comment by Susan on 3/31/08 at 5:17 pm #
    50. Hi Cybele,

      Love your blog, and have been following it for awhile. I yearn for the return of the long-discontinued Nestle Triple Decker Bar. These haven’t been made for years, but they consisted of a bottom layer of milk chocolate, a thin layer of white chocolate in the middle, and then topped off by a layer of dark chocolate. They were heaven, and I can’t believe they haven’t brought these back.

      Comment by John on 3/31/08 at 5:55 pm #
    51. My favorite is Snickers w/almonds

      Comment by jeanne pelllin on 3/31/08 at 6:12 pm #
    52. The perfect candy bar for me would be one that is toffee topped with crushed almonds and dipped in a very creamy milk chocolate. Yum! Don’t know if there is anything out there like that but I would sure like to find out.

      Comment by Sunshyne Blaylock on 3/31/08 at 6:13 pm #
    53. I like the Take 5 bar.  The only thing I would change would be the nut.  I’m not a fan of the peanut…walnut, pecan, almond, anything else would be much better!  I also love Malley’s Pretzel Crunch bars…yummy!

      Comment by Sandy Y on 3/31/08 at 6:13 pm #
    54. Anything chocolate!  I’m not picky.  Sometimes I’m in a mood for toffee, other times straight chocolate.  I like the new Hershy Cacao Reserve bars.

      Comment by Brooke Allen on 3/31/08 at 6:14 pm #
    55. Milk chocolate covering. Fresh berry flavor. A nice aroma of roasted nuts as you open the package. Not too crunchy or smooth but with a nice mouth feel that requires only 1 or 2 chews.

      Comment by Jacob LaFountaine on 3/31/08 at 6:16 pm #
    56. A candy bar that taste like chocolate cover cherries

      Comment by Dawn on 3/31/08 at 6:33 pm #
    57. My ideal candy bar would have a Thin Mint Cookie base, a layer of nougat, then covered in dark chocolate!

      Comment by Maple on 3/31/08 at 6:46 pm #
    58. Hummmm…I would have to say my perfect candy bar would be a shortbread bottom of the candy bar with a almond, caramel,nougat in the middle topped with milk chocolate. Drizzled with white chocolate. That sounds lip smackin’ good.

      Comment by Nicole on 3/31/08 at 6:51 pm #
    59. See’s scotch kisses…only improved with adding sliced almonds smile

    60. Cadbury Carmel eggs!!  Mmmm, the carmel is perfect!  Richly flavored and not too chewy and the chocolate shell - yum! 

      Cool blog!  I’ve got to try that new snickers.  Thanks for the generous giveaway!!

      Comment by Pamela on 3/31/08 at 7:18 pm #

    62. I have been enjoying candy bars since I was a baby.  I used to disguise my voice to try to convince my mom to give me more of them. 

      My ideal candy bar would consist of two honeyed graham crackers with a creamy layer of peanut butter between them.  The graham cracker-peanut butter sandwich would be coated with a silky layer of milk chocolate.

      I dream of winning boxes of candy bars!

    63. Any Snickers is my favorite.

    64. i just loved chocolate covered or honey roasted paydays.

      Comment by joe szczender on 3/31/08 at 9:14 pm #
    65. I’d love a chocolate bar, dark chocolate, of course, that was shaped much like a Caramilk bar, but with Raspberry Cream.  My dreams would come true.

      Failing that some of those Rocky Road bars would be a darned fine consolation prize.  Thanks for the chance!

      Comment by Carole on 3/31/08 at 9:38 pm #
    66. I would take a PayDay and coat it in dark chocolate.

      Comment by Belinda on 3/31/08 at 9:52 pm #
    67. I have to agree with the previously mentioned Take 5. Although a really good mint with quality chocolate and cherry would be nice.

      Comment by katie on 3/31/08 at 11:15 pm #
    68. I would love a candy bar with nouget and caramel with bites of toffee topped with pecans dipped in milk chocolate.  The Snickers Rocking Bar sounds yoummy

    70. My ideal candy bar would be deep, dark chocolate with a dense raspberry truffle filling.  Maybe a hint of espresso in the filling too.  This would probably be one of those bars that I’d never be able to find in my local convenience mart but would be destination-worthy.

      Comment by Courtney on 4/01/08 at 3:35 am #
    71. Oh, Candy bar heaven!  I can’t believe they sent you that much candy!  Wow!  I don’t know if I would be so generous.  Snickers really is my ideal candy bar.  I love them.  I would LOVE to try the rocky road snickers.

      Comment by Paige on 4/01/08 at 3:46 am #
    72. WOW!  This sounds like the ideal candy bar!  I love snickers.  And I love Rocky Road.  A match made in heaven.

      Comment by Julie J Donahue on 4/01/08 at 3:54 am #
    73. Take 5 - all time favorite but 2nd only to cholocate covered strawberries!

      Comment by Jodene Gildea on 4/01/08 at 4:25 am #
    74. I have always been a Three Musketeers fan, but I think the concept of the Take Five is best.  My ideal candy bar really needs the exploit the pretzel/chocolate combo.  Since I’m also a nougat fan, perhaps a snicker-y nougat, with pretzels and chocolate on a top “layer.”  That’d probably be my #1. 

      But I’m dying the try the Snickers Rockin Nut Road.

      Comment by Adam Scheinberg on 4/01/08 at 4:49 am #
    75. The 3 Musketeers bar mint bar that came out.  I love chocolate and mint.

    79. My ideal candy bar would be a Cherry Cordial Bar, a longer version of the classic single chocolate covered cherry.  A center filled with a row of cherries and the sugarry goo covered in dark chocolate. Yum!

    80. A Reeses Peanut Butter cup with dark chocolate

      Comment by Melanie Caputo on 4/01/08 at 7:25 am #
    81. As far as I’m concerned, there is nothing better than the classic peanut butter/chocolate combo that is Reese’s.  The perfect candy bar is probably the Big Cup, if those count.  Delicious!!!

      Comment by Laura on 4/01/08 at 9:29 am #
    82. I loved the original Mars Bar back when it had really good nougat and was flat with a line of six whole almonds down the top—one per bite!  This thing they have out now just isn’t the same…

      Comment by Karin on 4/01/08 at 10:07 am #
    83. hello Sir,
      I have been a fan of the regular snicker bar for decades. ( rockin nut do not need no addatives)
      one thing I would hope for is that it would be less sweet.

      Comment by Bernard on 4/01/08 at 11:03 am #
    84. My all time favorite is Milky Way but would love to try the new one.

      Comment by Betty Nickell on 4/01/08 at 11:36 am #
    85. There used to be a Rocky Road candy bar. I’d love to see that candy bar again, but with Dark Chocolate.

      Comment by Matt Chapman on 4/01/08 at 11:52 am #
    86. Rocky Road with dark chocolate

      Comment by Matt Chapman on 4/01/08 at 12:03 pm #
    87. I love Kit-Kat bars.  The perfect candy bar!

      Comment by Renee Turner on 4/01/08 at 12:04 pm #
    88. I love Aero bars, but they are sold in Canada and not the USA.  Maybe add nuts to the Aero bar for the perfect candy.

      Comment by Jennifer Short on 4/01/08 at 12:08 pm #
    89. Rocky road is the best combination of flavors in the candy world.

      Comment by Kate Johnson on 4/01/08 at 1:19 pm #
    90. My ideal candy bar would be the Vosges Mo’s Bacon Bar with *much* larger pieces of bacon.  I know it may sound weird, but don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!

      Comment by Laura Froelich on 4/01/08 at 1:48 pm #
    91. My ideal candy bar changes every day.  It would have to have milk chocolate and peanut butter, nuts, fudge, and a little marshmallow—and be big.  Ideally, my candy bar would also have no calories.  One can always dream!!!!!

      Comment by Felicia Shapiro on 4/01/08 at 2:09 pm #
    92. My ideal candy bar? I really miss the Reese’s Cookie Crunch Cups: typical crumbly Reese’s peanut butter slathered on a base of chocolate cookie crumbs, enrobed in milk chocolate. (I am absolutely in LOVE with pretty much everything Reese’s.)

      Comment by Taryn on 4/01/08 at 2:14 pm #
    93. Hello,

      My ideal candy would include these ingrediants.
      3.Pretzels (As you can tell I like a combination of salty and sweet!)
      4. The nougat from the midnight milky way.
      5. Dark Chocalate

      Comment by Bobby Newman on 4/01/08 at 2:47 pm #
    94. A Take 5 with more peanut butter.

      Comment by Ally on 4/01/08 at 3:02 pm #
    95. I guess my favorite is Reese’s peanut butter cups or a vanilla Bun.  Reese’s are very common but the Buns are hard to find.

      Comment by Janice Wright on 4/01/08 at 3:22 pm #
    96. Dream candy bar is not really a bar but rather a mint fondant-filled dark chocolate pyramid. They were available in the late 1980s (in Ireland anyway) not sure who made them and they ROCKED! Bring back the Pyramint!

      Comment by georgia on 4/01/08 at 3:42 pm #
    97. My ideal bar would be a like a Smores Kit Kat Bar. A graham cracker flavored wafer with a marshmallow filling and covered in milk chocolate.

      Comment by Nina on 4/01/08 at 3:52 pm #
    98. My ideal is Choco-Logo’s salty bar: milk chocolate with caramel and whole almonds, sprinkled with French sea salt.

      Comment by Beth on 4/01/08 at 3:55 pm #
    99. I am a LOVER of NUTS! But in Candy bars..I love ALMONDS. I would LOVE a candy bar that was LOADED with nuts or almonds. It must have a combination of Milk, Dark and White Chocolate. I would like to see an outer layer of Milk, with a inner layer of Dark, and white chocolate swirled throughout a light nougat center, loaded WITH NUTS. Maybe a hint of peanut butter with that. I only eat candy bars that have nuts, and snickers ALMOND is one of my favorites!!!

      Comment by Brittania D. Thompson on 4/01/08 at 4:14 pm #
    100. I think Snickers are pretty darn perfect. That said, I would love to win the new Snickers to try out.

      Comment by christine on 4/01/08 at 4:21 pm #
    101. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my all time fave!

    102. MMMnnnn a bar with 3 layers of alternating rich mint filling and dark chocolate.Sounds good to me!

      Comment by Carole on 4/01/08 at 6:26 pm #
    103. Thank you for sharing!

      I have to say, I would like to see someone take the nougat out of a Milky Way and put in peanut butter instead.

      Comment by Shelley on 4/01/08 at 7:32 pm #
    104. Dark chocolate, caramel, and pecans. Like a really good quality caramel turtle, in bar form. Joseph Schmidt turtles from San Francisco are my favorite turtle so far.

      Comment by Alli on 4/01/08 at 7:40 pm #
    105. Ideal candy bar: Dark chocolate twix, more cookie!

      Comment by Joyce L on 4/01/08 at 10:54 pm #
    106. Do you think they’d ever be able to successfully meld gummis + chocolate bar?  Until then, I will be very happy with a cookies and creme choco bar with lots of chunks!

      Comment by peg on 4/02/08 at 12:54 am #
    107. Bar None was my hands down favorite as a child but since they no longer make that my now ideal chocolate are Lindt balls in Hazelnut.  SO good! I can’t have them around too often!

      Comment by MK on 4/02/08 at 2:18 am #
    108. What an awesome giveaway!

      My favorite is a Ritter Sport Rum Trauben Nuss. Yum.

      Since I can’t easily get them over here (in the US) my favorite is the plain old Twix bar. I could eat the heck out of them! They’re good cold, too.

      Comment by Rachel on 4/02/08 at 3:38 am #
    109. I have always loved the Milky Way Bar - I think I would like it a little more though if it had some pretzles in it or something similar to that. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

      Comment by TheAngelForever on 4/02/08 at 4:56 am #
    110. Wow!  There are a lot of replies on here!  Hope you pick up a lot of new readers!

      Well, my fave candy bars are Twix and Kit Kat bars. But I would have to say if I could make a candy bar, it would go a little something like this:  a wafer similar to Twix but made with pretzel, caramel, cashews, covered in a dark chocolate.  smile

      Comment by Mandy on 4/02/08 at 5:04 am #
    111. My ideal candy bar would be something like Death by Chocolate.  A candy bar so rich and sweet that just one little bite would be enough to feed the old sweet tooth.  Anything chocolate is a good candy bar.  Can’t wait to try the new Snickers Rockin? Nut Road Bar; sounds delicious.

      Comment by Susan Ledet on 4/02/08 at 5:27 am #
    112. I’m a huge fan of the Easter Egg version of the Reese’s Peanut butter cups.  They are a little thicker, giving more peanut butter flavor.  Throw them in the fridge and they are even better!!

      Comment by Teresa on 4/02/08 at 6:13 am #
    113. My favorite candy bar is the 100 Grand.  I am a huge caramel and chocolate fan.  I read on your website at some point about one with coconut.  Although I agreed in theory with the coconut needing to be in the chocolate.  This sounds ideal for me, but I was never able to find them.  I would also enjoy if the 100 grand was a bit softer.  Perhaps I always buy stale ones?

      Comment by Jen on 4/02/08 at 6:52 am #
    114. Those new Snickers look AWESOME!  My ideal candy has components of dark chocolate, salty caramel, marshmallow & nuts.  Think See’s Scotchmallow with saltier caramel and nuts.

      Comment by Amy on 4/02/08 at 7:17 am #
    115. I love Milky Midnight.  It would be more perfect if the dark chocolate were creamier and the caramel was more fluid and slightly salty.

      Comment by ah-ha on 4/02/08 at 8:16 am #
    116. my ideal candy bar would have to be nougat with caramel and toffee pieces covered in chocolate…mmm… now i’m hungry… send this poor college student some finals treats please!! :O!!!

      Comment by Erica on 4/02/08 at 8:23 am #
    117. dark chocolate, salted cashews, caramel

      Comment by janeh on 4/02/08 at 9:00 am #
    118. My childhood favotite,without a doubt, was the Marathon Bar. The cocoa butter flavored caramel with the creamy milk chocolate was an awesome combination. Also, this candy really lived up to its name!! It took a very long time to consume. Long lasting pleasure. Why did they discontinue?!

      Comment by Rick on 4/02/08 at 10:08 am #
    119. I love MallowCups. The double chocolate bottom is like a Reese’s cup and gives it a nice heft and balances the marshmallow. The toasted coconut mixed in on the top puts it over the edge. Mallowcups are especially good for dessert afer tacos.

      Comment by Diana on 4/02/08 at 10:15 am #
    120. My ideal candy bar would be one that doesn’t go straight to my hips…

      I’ll take a good ole’ Snickers Almond anytime!!

      Comment by Julie Ford on 4/02/08 at 10:32 am #
    121. dark choc reeses

      Comment by Susan P on 4/02/08 at 10:37 am #
    122. my ideal chocolate bar would be a balance of salty and sweet (PayDay gets that part just right) heavy on the nuts and coconut.  It should have a nice chewy bite, and a (real) chocolate coating.

      Comment by emily on 4/02/08 at 11:04 am #
    123. Too many to choose.
      I love salty, soft caramel, almonds and chocolate.
      I also miss the Marathon bar minus the chocolate always falling off!

      Comment by michelle robbins on 4/02/08 at 11:11 am #
    124. Last Christmas one of my coworkers shared a bag of chocolate-covered toffee pistacchios. They were the greatest thing ever. So… a toffee pistacchio bar, enrobed in quality milk chocolate. (Usually I prefer dark, but I tried both kinds and the milk flavor really tied it all together.)

      Comment by Katie on 4/02/08 at 11:31 am #
    125. a really big one

      Comment by jan koontz on 4/02/08 at 11:35 am #
    126. I am all about Zero bars.  I can’t find anything to complain about.  They are perfect.

      Comment by Stepho on 4/02/08 at 12:29 pm #
    127. I love love love plain old Snickers.  I would have them make a special one with pecans instead of peanuts just for fun.

      Comment by Cheryl Larimer on 4/02/08 at 12:49 pm #
    128. The best chocolate I’ve had recently was on my mom’s birthday. I bought her a nice potted plant and some chocolate turtles from this garden center locally. The chocolate was milk chocolate with caramel , pecans and pralines. Yummy! She let me have a piece..NO I didn’t eat all my mom’s chocolate..that would be rude..;o)

      Comment by Susan on 4/02/08 at 1:38 pm #
    129. I esnt a candy bar that is chocolate-free.

      Comment by Kayce C. on 4/02/08 at 1:39 pm #
    130. Caramels dipped in espresso flavored dark chocolate (drool).

      Comment by Jess on 4/02/08 at 2:03 pm #
    131. I love those chocolate covered coconut balls that grandma used to make.  It’s not the same as Mounds which I also love.  I think I’m going to make some now.  MMM

      Comment by Sage on 4/02/08 at 2:31 pm #
    132. Some how, some way there must be a way to combine the flavor of tart black raspberry center surrounded by crunchy peanut butter covered wafer (peanut plus twix shell?) in a dark chocolate plus malt shell.

      Comment by JONI CHADWELL on 4/02/08 at 3:19 pm #
    134. After recently trying milk chocolate-covered potato chips for the first time ever, I think my ideal candy bar would be a KitKat with potato chips replacing the wafers.  Yummmmm.

      Comment by Sara on 4/02/08 at 3:43 pm #
    135. My ideal candy bar would be like a Maple Bun, only the maple filling would be less sweet (is that even possible??) and it would be shaped more like a bar than a bun. And the chocolate should be dark (65%ish) instead of milk.

      Comment by Tricia on 4/02/08 at 3:44 pm #
    136. I’ve long thought that the top-half-only of a proper, standard Snickers bar is the best candy bar ever.  I carefully slice off the nougat part from stock snickers bars (I do eat it but I don’t *like* it the way I like the nuts and caramel part) so that I can have the caramel-and-peanuts part only.

      Comment by which.chick on 4/02/08 at 3:51 pm #
    137. My favorite candy bar is Caramello, the extra large size! I love the way it just melts in your mouth!!

      Comment by Sharon M. on 4/02/08 at 4:27 pm #
    138. Dark chocolate (like 75%) with bits of candied lemon peel and a hint of lemon extract. I love chocolate and citrus.

      Comment by Laurel on 4/02/08 at 5:37 pm #
    139. I love kind size Snickers… the proportions of nougat/caramel/chocolate is right for me in that candy bar. The other Snickers just seem wrong to me.

      Comment by Sonya Neal on 4/02/08 at 6:01 pm #
    140. I would love a Pringles Chip coated in chocolate.  That is what I thought the Swoops candy first were, and was disappointed.

      Comment by Misty on 4/02/08 at 6:19 pm #
    141. what-cha-macall-it… yummy…

      Comment by amber on 4/02/08 at 6:47 pm #
    142. ideal candy bar? i can think of several. I love high quality orange jellys. So I would love to see a bar with DARK chocolate, intense orange jelly, and a creamy nougat with almond chips to offset it the jelly. sounds yummy….maybe i will try to make it.. and if you don’t mind more than one…. a creamy, buttery caramel, covering pecans,over a layer of really good mocha truffel, all enrobed in semisweet chocolate… i could probably list more…but you just ask for one so i am already over doing it.

      Comment by Rainee on 4/03/08 at 2:04 am #
    143. I just found your blog and have enjoyed reading your reviews. I so love cad. mini eggs and wish that I could have tried the popping ones. My ideal candy?? I think that if they made a version of the mini egg filled w/ peanut butter as well as the chocolate, I would be in heaven. Looking forward to your next review and of reading all of your prior ones.

      Comment by Steph Gee on 4/03/08 at 2:35 am #
    144. My ideal candybar -

      chocolate cookie(think oreo) with peanut caramel(think snickers), covered with milk chocolate

      Comment by mbnh31782 on 4/03/08 at 3:17 am #
    145. My ideal candy is the Hershey’s take five but I would make the pieces about half the size they are so they are easier to eat!

      Comment by Stacey Brown on 4/03/08 at 4:34 am #
    146. My ideal bar would be a combo of Twix and Butterfinger!

      Comment by sarah on 4/03/08 at 4:40 am #
    147. Snickers!!  Why mess with perfection??!!

      Comment by Julie on 4/03/08 at 4:43 am #
    148. My favorite is still Caramello, just something about that almost-liquid caramel inside that just makes me weak-kneed. Second, because it’s my wife’s favorite, is Toffifay, which is a hazelnut, caramel and chocolate fusion. Yum.

      Comment by Eric on 4/03/08 at 5:42 am #
    149. My ideal candy bar would be one that’s sinfully rich and chocolately—and calorie-free!

      Comment by Michelle L. on 4/03/08 at 6:23 am #
    150. I absolutely LOVE dark chocolate and marshmallow combos. My ideal and perfect candy bar would be the see’s scotchmallow…mmm…

      Comment by Judy Kwan on 4/03/08 at 6:31 am #
    151. I don’t understand…how are egg whites vegetarian? If you go the vegan route and don’t eat any animal products - hence the reason for avoiding gelatin - then how are egg whites a vegetarian-friendly substitute? I’m not vegetarian myself, so I am probably just misunderstanding this, but I was curious about that after reading your post.

      Anyway, on to the more important question - the ideal candy bar. For me, it would combine dark chocolate (not extremely bitter like 71% cacao - maybe more like 55% or 60%, but definitely not a milk chocolate), lime, and pretzels. It would probably most resemble a flat layer of pretzel, coated in the dark chocolate, with a zig-zag drizzle of lime icing on the top. And when I say icing, I mean like the thin icing you sometimes see drizzled over chocolates in a Russell Stover’s or Whitman’s box. Not exactly sure what it’s called, but it’s not soft, and it looks like you could write with it. I like the idea of just putting the lime flavor in that drizzle of icing, so it’s not overwhelming, but it might be good to have a hint of it in the chocolate itself as well. Also, the pretzel layer shouldn’t snap and crumble into a hundred pieces when you bit into it, but it should still have some of the pretzel snappiness and not be just completely pliable. If you know of a candy bar like this already, please let me know!

      Comment by Melissa on 4/03/08 at 6:54 am #
    152. my ideal bar would be:
      nougat from an original snickers bar topped with peanut butter and pretzel pieces covered in milk chocolate!

      Comment by tonya on 4/03/08 at 7:56 am #
    153. A snickers with more peanuts

      Comment by Anthony Hedden on 4/03/08 at 8:00 am #
    154. I would love a Cadbury Cream Egg in bar form with a base of pretzels. I love to crack open the egs and use pretzel sticks to scoop out the cream!

      Comment by Erin on 4/03/08 at 8:10 am #
    155. I would layer nougat, caramel and lots of almonds.

    157. My ideal candy bar would be a Reece’s cup with dark chocolate.

      Comment by Elizabeth Baer on 4/03/08 at 9:17 am #
    158. Snickers is my favorite candy bar and pretty close to perfect for me… I haven’t tried the dark chocolate version but I think that might BE the perfect one since I imagine it would be less sweet and more balanced.

      Comment by Nicole Gauvin on 4/03/08 at 9:30 am #
    159. A Twix with a chocolate cookie plus marshmallow in addition to the caramel.  A smore-ish kind of treat.

      Comment by Carol M on 4/03/08 at 10:00 am #
    160. Snickers is awsome but would like to have one made with cashews

      Comment by Tia Carter on 4/03/08 at 11:02 am #
    163. I was reading through the comments, looking at other people’s ideas, and #455, Julie, has an AWESOME idea: “almonds,peanuts,and cashew nuts surrounded by a toffee fluff and dipped in white chocolate and the top then dunked in dark chocolate.”

      Comment by Jason O on 4/03/08 at 11:23 am #

      Comment by Pamela Hansen on 4/03/08 at 12:32 pm #
    167. Hmm… I am torn… I would have to say Peanut Butter M&Ms;are already pretty ideal, or Reese’s. Peanut butter/chocolate is a god-send.

      Not really a candy, but I think peanut butter flavored Whoopie pies would be awesome. Oh my god, whoopie pies…

      Comment by Pat G on 4/03/08 at 12:51 pm #
    168. Oh, to be a candy taste tester! The life!  My DREAM candy bar would be a cross between Reese’s peanut butter cup and an almond joy bar.  I’m not sure how it could be pulled off, but peanut butter, almonds and coconut,and chocolate YUM!

      Comment by Amy on 4/03/08 at 12:59 pm #
    169. My ideal candy bar would have have a rich milk chocolate coating over crunchy caramel mixed with peanuts and a touch of sea salt. Basically, a really high-quality frozen Snickers without the nougat. And it wouldn’t break my teeth or pull out my crown.

      Comment by Rachel Brown on 4/03/08 at 1:27 pm #
    170. My ideal candy bar would be a Skor bar coated in Dark chocolate, with a layer of caramel on top of the toffee.

    171. My ideal candy bar would be a dark chocolate,caramel, cherry bar. Kind’a like a milkyway but with the chunks of cherry.

      Comment by Jess on 4/03/08 at 5:39 pm #
    180. Pomegranate (dried or some kinda cream/nougat/etc) enrobed in milk/dark chocolate. Hell, I’d take a variant in white chocolate.

    186. ONE ideal bar?  Your chocolate and pretzels idea is good and I do buy both the Pretzel Flipz and pb filled chocolate pretzels (the walmart brand is the one I like best) on occasion.

      Ones I miss that were GREAT?  It’s funny, but I used to love the Marathon bar - it was a long, skinny, chocolate-covered caramel lattice.  The holes allowed bites to consist of smaller bits rather than a whole mouthful, so no big issues with caramel getting caught in my teeth.  The idea was a flat and lacy Rolo, but I liked it even better.  This is funny because I don’t much like caramel in my candy bars now.

      Another on I enjoyed was Choco-Lite.  Chocolate with bubbles in it.  Down the road there was a candy bar - it hit the 99c stores rignt away! - that was a chocolate laced with pop rocks style carbonation (though it was ALL chocolate, nothing fruity about it.)  People just.didn’ but I think bubbly chocolate is awesome.  I think Cadbury’s Aero has bubbles?  I’ll have to either order some or make a trip to the candy store to experiment.

      Finally - a classic that is actually really hard to find around here and something that has been a favorite for as long as I’ve had teeth:
      BIT ‘O HONEY.  Last time I found one, it was in a hospital gift shop for a buck and a half.  I didn’t care - I got two.

    187. i’m in love with Fast Breaks! the best way to make them better is to add caramel and make it the size of a person!

    191. my ideal candy bar would be soft caramel, with roasted pistacios (which are used far too little in my opinion!) covered in dark chocolate.  finished with a touch of sea salt on top.
      holy moley… yum

    193. My ideal candy is almost any nut/chew from See’s.  I’m onto the Walnut Square at the moment.

    194. Wow, what a great giveaway!

      I’m a huge fan of the salty/sweet combo, with some crunch.  I’d love a salted caramel candy bar, with a twix-like cookie or some chopped marcona almonds for some crunch.  But I’m definitely excited about the prospect of rocky road snickers!

    195. My ideal candy bar is the no longer in production Marathon bar. It was a braided caramel bar coated in milk chocolate and it was absolutely sensational! Anything with chocolate and chewy caramel is what I love.

    196. Snickers is without a doubt my favorite.  Frozen, chopped into ice cream, straight out of the wrapper or any extra special way I get eat it.

    197. No need to re-invent the best ... Russell Stover Pecan Delights—the perfect blend of chewy caramel, nuts and chocolate.  Thanks for sponsoring this contest!

    198. Snickers is my all time fav…but have always wondered how it would taste with walnuts and dried cranberrys

    199. Love your blog—just stumbled across it today.  As a true candy addict, I’m partial to anything a little salty & a little sweet.  Perhaps a slightly salty cookie base similar to a twix, topped with a layer of a coffee caramel, topped with toasted, chopped hazelnuts then covered in a lovely semi-sweet (not bittersweet mind you:)) chocolate.  De-licious!
