What do we think of first when we hear the word candy? Easter, Halloween, Christmas and Valentines, right? Guess what? Candy is a year-round thing from something to get you through the afternoon with that last cup of coffee or an after-school treat for the kids.

There are so many kinds of candy barswhere do you start? There are dark chocolate and milk chocolate, plain and peanut, chewy centers and gooey centers, crunchy ones and ones filled with coconut. 

How can I pick just one favorite? I can't! But I can tell you what I like and don't like.

I don't like ones the ones with chewy centers like Snickers or Milky Way. I feel like they are going to rip my teeth out. While I do like chocolate and peanuts together, I don't like Mr. Goodbars or peanut M&Ms.

I like both dark and milk chocolate, depending on the candy bar. So, in no particular order, here are some of my favorites, and yeah they're not all technically candy bars. 

Nestlé Crunch
Hershey Krackel
Hershey Kisses (dark chocolate)
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Kit Kat
York Peppermint Patties
Plain M&Ms

Other chocolate confections I like are brandied cherries (I don't like cherries otherwise), Whitman chocolates (soft centers only) and Lindt Chili dark chocolate bars.

What's your favorite candy bar, or other candy?

If you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.


  1. I really don't like reese's peanut butter cups. I'm always a fan of plain m&ms.

    I haven't been eating much candy or chocolates lately so I can't tell you my favorites, although I do like milk chocolate anything.

    have a lovely day.

    1. M&Ms are good any time! I love the red and green ones at Christmas, and I like the mini ones in vanilla yogurt.

  2. OK, so now I want sweets. I'll go for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and York Peppermint Patties - just they're not available in Swiss stores.

    1. Sorry you can't get those there. I guess you could order them, but that would expensive. I'm sure you have some excellent chocolate in Switzerland!
