In honor of National Chocolate Day, I’m counting down my Top 10 Favorite Chocolate Bars.
No high-end bars here. No Amedei Chuao or Pralus Papouasie. Just your standard chocolate bars you’ll find in most convenience stores (depending, of course, on where you live in the world).
Love the chocolate and peanut combo, but this one loses a few marks for the caramel. It’s actually better deep-fried.
#9. Kit Kat
This one gets bonus marks for the sheer variety of flavors you can pick up in Japan. My favorite = the matcha.
This one lands at the 8 spot on the strength of its unique texture.
Liquid caramel always trumps the chewy variety.
When I was a kid, one of my first jobs was working weekend clean up at a chocolate factory where we ate these for lunch. Another bar with a great texture.
#5. Coffee Crisp
I hear this one is only available in Canada. If true, you’re really missing out.
#4. Oh Henry
Similar to a Snickers but I feel the combination of ingredients just work better here.
#3. Almond Joy
While I love coconut bars like Bounty and Mounds, the addition of almonds puts this one in a league of its own.
Remember to store them in the freezer for a unique taste experience!
#1. Reeses Peanut Butter Cup
The snappy, soft, sweet and salty combo can’t be beat.
