December 28 marks National #Chocolate #Candy Day in the United States, and there's no better way to celebrate than going to the local convenience store and purchasing your favorite chocolate candy bar. But what should you pick? Here's one chocolate lover's rankings of the top choices for the holiday.
5. Kit Kat
Sometimes, the classics are just what the doctor ordered. This candy bar doesn't do anything particularly special and generally melts in your hands if you don't take it out of the packaging and dismantle it fast enough, but the chocolate wafer consistently gets the job done time after time.
An additional benefit is that it's easy to share with friends due to the four-piece packaging.
In terms of combining ingredients, arguably no candy bar does it better than Twix. The crunchy biscuit inside is coated with gooey caramel and the right balance of milk chocolate, allowing it to work its magic without overpowering any of the other ingredients. The latest marketing campaign for Twix is a bit uninspired, but the bar is not.
3. Nestlé Crunch
This was the best-selling candy bar during the same year the Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme came about, and with good reason. True to it's name, the crisped rice inside makes for a loud cacophony with every bite, each containing more delicious milk chocolate than the last. They seem to be harder to find than usual, but it's still a valuable choice.
This candy bar has a delicious outer coating, but an even better, fluffy inside. The nougat filling is surrounded by soft, luscious milk chocolate. The size is perfect for about a four-bite experience, enough to feel satiated and simultaneously feel the need for more and more.
1. Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme
Some people contest that white chocolate isn't actually chocolate at all, but since there's none of that in this candy bar, the argument is moot. The cookie-like texture of the Cookies 'n' Creme, combined with an ice cream-like texture makes this the easy winner for best chocolate bar. #Holidays
