gotta love that Baby Ruth!
Definitely Milky Way. It's like Snickers, only better.
Almond Joy as I love coconut -has to be cold though.
what ever happened to the good ol' mars bar? oh well, snickers then.
Any type of plain chocolate bar. Has to be cold from the fridge as well.
M&Ms aren't really a candy bar.
I want one now...
Gotat go - need to run to the store.
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.
Now your making me hungry. I'm going to go get a Milky Wayand 3 Musketeers right now..
Gotta love the cups!
Snickers but you didn't list Kit Kat
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. --Alon Ziv
The occasional Skor, Lion, and Milka (Alpenmilch & Halbbitter) fuel me around campus, too.
I'm addicted to milkyway bars.
I voted for Milky Way, and if anybody says different they're a beeping beeper.
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.
Other - Wunderbar...mmmm...
charlston chew, the chocolate and vanilla varieties... i don't like the strawberry ones
~NiKe, DaRK LaDy oF THe SiTH~
M&M's by far.

Where's Mars Bar?
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*
I have a candy bar probably once every 6 months... and it's always a Snickers
