    Voted for Snickers.

    Any of the Geriatric here recall a candy bar called the Marathon Bar? Caramel coated in chocolate, the ads promoted the fact that you couldn't eat it quickly. I miss that one.

    Whatchamacallit.

    Disclaimer: The following excerpt from an article on the candy bar is not intended to flame those who like other bars, though the bars themselves are disdained.

    The Whatchamacallit is a superior candy bar. It has the delicious flavor of peanut butter, without the greasy heaviness of a peanut butter cup; the light crispiness of a Kit Kat with the added complexities of peanut butter and caramel. The only candies that come close are the new ReeseSticks. ReeseSticks are tasty, but might well be called "Blatant-Rip-off-of-Whatchamacallit-without-the-CaramelSticks." It is the delightful chewiness of the caramel that catapults Whatchamacallit from mere candy bar to something more.

    So why are they so ... hard to find? ... [Why] is Whatchamacallit the cast-off bastard child of Hershey?

    It's obviously not the sweet crispy goodness of the bar itself. The plain beige wrapper? Unlikely. Although it isn't exciting, it has a certain simple charm.

    It must be the name. In an effort to be cute and clever the Whatchamacallit has alienated the public. The average candy bar eater wants to chow down on something simple during his coffee break. An uncomplicated, unthreatening bar with fewer than fifteen letters and five syllables. This explains the success of such lesser candy bars as Mounds and Big Hunk.

    This effect has been seen in other industries.

    The "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series of books has been phenomenally successful. But if you've ever picked one up you know it contains nothing but [link=http://www.magnoliamovie.com]trite saccharine pap[/link]. Why does the public put up with it? It's the name.

    Chicken Soup means down-home, heartwarming goodness for the Soul. It's not just a cheesy money-making vehicle; it's for the Soul!

    Similarly, Microsoft dominates the computer industry, despite [link=http://redoctane.com/fusfrenxbox.html]inferior products[/link]. Why does the public put up with it? It's because of their name.

    Micro = small
    Soft = soft

    Small and soft, like a bunny! And who among us does not secretly want to trade his computer in for a bunny? I know I would. Bunnies are so cute, especially the kind with the floppy ears. And I love the way their noses wiggle all the time. Wiggle wiggle wiggle. Hippity hop! Hippity hop!

    If I had a bunny I would name him Whatchamacallit.

    The occasional Skor, Lion, and Milka (Alpenmilch & Halbbitter) fuel me around campus, too. :)

    Twix narrowly defeats Milky Way and Butterfinger.

    Like Blue 10 said M&Ms aren't a candy bar and neither are reeses peanut butter cups.

    I voted Twix.

    But I also like Almond Joy, Snickers, Skor, 100 grand, and my absolute fav Whatamacallit.

    *Seriously thinking about running to nearest convience store for a candy bar run*
