Top 10 Chocolate Bars


These things taste too good to worry if they’re bad for you! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 chocolate bars!

For this list, we’ve looked at all confections sold in a conventional ‘bar’ form. For that reason, we have not included products like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or M&Ms. We have also decided not to include luxury chocolate bars, like Lindt or Toblerone! Some of these bars may not be available where you are, but they’re popular in their home countries. Now let’s dig in!

#10: Butterfinger

‘Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger,’ and nobody better argue about our inclusion of this Nestlé num-num. Originally concocted by the Curtiss Candy Company in 1923 Chicago, this candy confection was named by the public! Today, its chocolate and peanut-buttery presence is a staple inclusion on supermarket shelves, and no wonder! With its flaky filling and crispy consistency, Butterfinger has inspired imitators but has never been bettered. And with Bart Simpson as its spokesbrat, you can’t go wrong!

#9: Baby Ruth

If there’s one ingredient that complements a candy bar well, it’s peanuts. And Nestlé’s Baby Ruth is full to bursting with peanuts! Melted into the rest of this concoction, the nuts blend with caramel and chocolate-flavored nougat to serve up a chew to savor! Despite its brand name baring a striking resemblance to one Babe Ruth, the legendary baseball player, Baby Ruth creators the Curtiss Candy Company historically insist there is no link. That being said, the bar is synonymous with the Major League regardless!

#8: Nestlé Crunch

There’s nothing like a little onomatopoeia to get the taste buds tingling, and Nestlé Crunch is perhaps the greatest candy that sounds like what it feels like! First introduced into its mouth-watering market in 1937, Crunch is one of the longest-serving sweet treats out there! Nowadays it plays the nostalgia card well, with a recent slogan reading ‘For the kid in you’! There’s nothing quite like rolling back the years with a slab of crisped rice and chocolate!

#7: Oh Henry!

A candy bar experience so exciting it requires an exclamation mark, Oh Henry! is another candy store heavyweight for which the brand name etymology is not entirely known. Of all the possible explanations for its title however, perhaps the most pleasing is that it was named after a boy who frequently flirted with the girls who made the candy! With peanuts and caramel layered over a fudgey base and coated with chocolate, this is a bar that provides one heck of a bite!

#6: 3 Musketeers

If you’re eating a candy bar then you’ve probably already conceded a little on that day’s diet regime, but if you’re eating 3 Musketeers then you need not feel too bad! Branded as ‘Big on chocolate, not on fat’, it’s the fluffiest of the sweet snack options! Originally created as 3 separate miniature bars stuffed with whipped filling flavored chocolate, strawberry and vanilla - hence its name - the modern-day 3 Musketeers is larger and lighter than most of its competitors! It’s tastier than most as well!

#5: Mars Bar

A king of the candy bar world, the Mars Bar is one of the most commercially and historically successful sweets on the entire planet! With a name that takes us out of this world, the ingredients list is surprisingly simple! Milk chocolate. Caramel. Nougat. Nothing more, nothing less! Unless you’re in the United States, that is – in that case, it’s chocolate, nougat, caramel and almonds. But the rest of the world goes nut-free, and loves it! With its ‘Work, rest, play’ tagline, and its frequently customized promotional packaging, this is a treat for anytime, anywhere and anyone! Mars has Earth feeling satisfied!

#4: Twix

Why have one candy bar when you can have two?? Twix doubles up our delight with their classic combination of caramelly chocolateness and a biscuit base! Another product made by the Mars Company, it was first produced in the UK in 1967, and introduced to the US in ‘79. Known as Raider throughout most of Europe until the early ‘90s, it certainly mounted an assault on the candy bar industry! A younger product than most on this list, Twix tastes good twice over!

#3: Milky Way

Another Mars creation, the Milky Way was a candy bar standard-bearer for the 20th century! Created in 1923 by Chocolate bar mogul Frank C. Mars, its name was taken from a popular U.S. milkshake at the time, and was not originally linked to outer space as some believe! This is a product that differs depending on where you buy it... In the U.S. it bares resemblance to a European Mars Bar; Outside the U.S., it’s more like the American 3 Musketeers... Either way, it’s well worth eating!

#2: Kit Kat

In times gone past, America had the Milky Way, and Britain had the Kit Kat! Another pioneer within its chocolately field, this treat was tasted first in the early decades of the 20th century. Originally manufactured by Rowntree’s, but now produced by Nestlé and Hershey in America, the Kit Kat is so simple, it’s brilliant! Triple-layered wafer coated with milk chocolate. That’s all there is to it! Terrific taste aside, the satisfying snap of one finger from another is iconic enough in itself! We’re told to ‘take a break’, and we’re more than happy to oblige!

Before we unwrap our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Aero
- Skor
- Crunchie
- Hershey Bar
- Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme

#1: Snickers

We know your candy cravings are no doubt doing cartwheels right now, but we’ve saved a real treat for the top spot! Yet another Mars creation, Snickers combines everything you’d ever need of candy nutrition! It’s nougat topped with peanuts, smothered in caramel, shrouded in chocolate. It ticks all the right boxes, and it does it so well; it’s become the world’s best-selling bar! With A-listers on its adverts, it’s got this list all wrapped up! Now to locate your nearest candy bar, and unwrap away! For one time only, you can eat it all at once!
