Although I’m a big chocolate fan, I’m not really a big chocolate candy bar eater. In particular, I don’t really enjoy the nutty chocolate bars. A few years ago, my husband and I bought Halloween bags of Snickers, Baby Ruth, and 3 Musketeers just to taste test them against each other. It’s been a while and I can’t even remember what we decided. So I decided to steal some of the kids’ Halloween candy and give it a shot again.
Snickers: This is the one that I always think about when I think about nuts in a candy bar. It contains peanut butter nougat, which I don’t particularly enjoy. I do, however, like the peanuts and the caramel.
3 Musketeers: The filling in the middle of the 3 Musketeers is a fluffy, light chocolate. So it’s essentially chocolate on top of chocolate. What’s not to like about that? It’s very sweet for its little size. I think this is a candy bar that I could eat a lot more of. Why did I think that it had nuts?
Baby Ruth: This is a complex candy bar with a lot going on–chocolate covered peanuts, caramel, and nougat. I had to eat more of this one than the others to even figure out of I liked it or not. It’s very sweet. And I like the nougat better than in the Snickers. But I don’t think I like the peanuts as much.
In the end, I decided that while I like them all, I’m still not going to start eating any of them on a regular basis. Candy bars are just not my first choice in chocolate. Keep in mind that my findings are based only on the “fun size” of each of these candy bars. Much more than that and I would be sick to my stomach!
