Never been much of a candy "bar" eater. Chocolate is my weakness of choice and my favorite is a small handful of Hershey's Special Dark kisses. I limit myself to 4 kisses at a time. Let them melt slowly in my mouth so I can savor the flavor.

I used to like York peppermint patties until a friend at camp last summer showed me how to make them myself - now I like Laurie's peppermint patties!

Expatgirl, what do you think about Russian candy. Quite different from American kind. But they are good. I strongly recomend to anybody who has a Russian store near buy to stop buy and taste some Russian candies. Most of them are American made nowadays, but they are made in the best Russian tradition. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Candy bars have changed .... so these are based on the way they used to taste circa 1967:

Zero
3 Musketeers (I loved the amount of malt they used to use)
Almond Joy/Mounds
Hershey's bar - plain or with almonds
M&M's
Reese's Peanut butter Cups
Nestle's Crunch
