Probably plain Hershey or Hershey with Almonds. M&M's (both plain and peanut) and Mounds are pretty good, too. And, an occasional Payday.

Thanks to this thread, I think I'll buy a couple candy bars on my trip to Rite Aid this afternoon. :)

Butterfingers are pretty good too. I'm getting tired of Reese cups. LOL! Clark bars are good. I really like the ice cream ones too. Snickers Ice cream bar is good.
Only a few times, I have had a Butterfinger. But, they are good! Can't recall if I have ever had a Clark.

If it's Snickers (my back up to 3M), it has to be good. Ice cream? OMG

I totally forgot about the Oh Henry! bar. I got hooked on them after hearing Montreal Expos fans would throw them on the field after Henry Rodriguez hit a home run. IIRC, Gilbert Gottfried used to do some Oh Henry! bar ads.

A buddy of mine reminded me that we once tried Yoo-Hoo bars a few years ago. Anyone else ever try one? They were as awful and full of fake chocolate as the drink. I also recall them being rather large, so there was a lot of fake chocolate bar to suffer through.

How about Goo Goo bars, anybody else ever eat those? They're like a Baby Ruth but shaped more like a peanut cluster. They also make a variety with Pecans. My grandpa claimed Goo Goos are the official candy bar of the South.

Goo Goo are very good. I love candy bars so I’ve tried most everything mentioned here at one time or another.
I like PayDay for a change of pace, Goobers, Raisinettes, they were selling 4pk Mallo Cups at Kroger a while back for a quarter, I guess Cincinnati natives don’t like them.

Most days my favorite would be the 100 Grand Bar, but there are some days when only a Butterfinger will do. Then of course there is the Baby Ruth... 😂

I can only find it in special candy stores. I haven't found it in a grocery store or convenient food store in years. I love CVG Airport because their specialty candy store sells it.
Occasionally see it in stores and gas stations. I usually buy one if I see one. The toasted coconut outer layer is unique. Otherwise, it's just a Clark Bar.

Anyone remember the original Candy Barr? She was the favorite of many, including Jack Ruby and Mickey Cohen and legions more.

I'm impressed IB. I thought for sure you'd think this thread about strippers.
I did!

Little me was fascinated by the posters on the old "burlesque" house. Strippers had great names, not boring crap like "kardassian."

Building got knocked down and replaced by a terrific piece of architecture for the local rich people Stranahans, which lasted only until someone needed a tax break (this is how Toledo mafia launders properties... through non-profits.) and it became a different type of fleecing, United Way, until someone needed a financial break and some construction pork came along and then that building got torn down for the most bland POS you can imagine.

When I as a kid we'd go to Canada for a week in the summer to fish. While I was there I'd get Cadbury Dairy Milk bars. They were crazy good. I had one 4 or 5 years ago and it was nothing special.

I listen to morning show Dave & Chuck the Freak out of Detroit. Dave was born in Ireland and swears Cadbury over there and in Canada is different than here and far far better. I always thought he was being a chocolate snob.

Used to like the Cadbury Creme Easter eggs, but in my advanced age, they taste like nothing to write home about.
