        That was aerated chocolate, right? I have happily bought aerated chocolate in Europe, Canada, and Argentina, but it seems never to have caught on in the USA. Maybe you can mail-order the Nestle's or Milka brands?

          No that's a Aero Bar- I see them in specialty food stores in New York.

          Bar None was Chocolate wafers and cream and peanuts and dark chocolate- they were absolutely addictive- they were great- I miss them too! They changed them not long before they discontinued them- they added unecessary caramel and killed them. THey were great with a cup of coffee. Yum.

            Aren't they similar to a Whatchamacallit bar?

                Bar Nones were the best! I was a bar none-a-holic. I ws so bummed when they altered and then eliminated them. What-cha-ma-call-its were not dark chocolate and were puffier. Not as good. Maybe we can start a campaign- the "Restore Bar None" campaign.

                          I'd like to see them bring Bar None back since I've never had one before. I bought one once then lost it just before they stopped being sold in my area.

                            Bar None, made by Hershey, originally featured a cocoa wafer, chocolate filling, peanuts and a milk chocolate coating. They first came out in about 1987, I believe.

                              I think they're still being marketed in Mexico.

                              Has anyone seen them down there?

                                origional bar none was 1 bar i think.
                                this bar none looks like the new candy bar 2 packs that nabisco have out called choco stix.

                                i was going to post awhile ago about them.
                                the chips ahoy one is close to the old bar none but not quite there.

                                  The original was definitely one bar, but they went through some efforts to boost the brand and turned it into two wafer sticks. The bar was introduced in 1986 as a full sized bar with wafers filled with cream, covered in crushed peanuts and chocolate.

                                  Then in '93 they made it into two bars and put in some caramel.

                                  I don't know when they stopped making them, but I didn't like the reformulated bars at all.

                                  I've been eating the Lu Chocolatiers and find them to have a very good satisfaction quotient. Oh, and oodles of trans fatty acids.

                                    they did add caramel and made it 2 bars.

                                    but there was already a bar that was very sucessful doing the same thing and that was called twix.

                                    then shortly after bar none was gone

                                    who reads spanish, translate that bar none web page

                                      I don't think that the bar was much like a Twix. Twix has a very dense cookie in the center that's more about the crumbly crunch and it has a flavor of its own.

                                      The wafers of the Bar None, though flavorless, were light and crispy and had the light cream between them.

                                      I think what happened was the Bar None twin bars ended up too similar to the Reese's Sticks.

                                      I have a friend going to Mexico in a few weeks and she said she'd keep her eye out for the Bar None there. I have high hopes.

                                        i'm not certain that reeses stix were around then.
                                        maybe just cant remember

                                        still the bar none were made more like twix due to the caramel and the cookie like middle.

                                        doesnt matter really there gone

                                                but there was already a bar that was very sucessful doing the same thing and that was called twix.

                                                I don't think that the bar was much like a Twix. Twix has a very dense cookie in the center that's more about the crumbly crunch and it has a flavor of its own.

                                                The wafers of the Bar None, though flavorless, were light and crispy and had the light cream between them.

                                                I think what happened was the Bar None twin bars ended up too similar to the Reese's Sticks.

                                                I have a friend going to Mexico in a few weeks and she said she'd keep her eye out for the Bar None there. I have high hopes.


                                                is spite of the cookie and not a wafer the bar none was changed to compete with the twix bar.

                                                didnt work.

                                                and this is from reeses.com.

                                                  For those who are still lamenting the Bar None, Nestle has a new bar called the Crisp Crunch bar ... it's not real chocolate, but it does have some crispy wafers and cream and a chocolatey coating (no nuts).

                                                  http://www.typetive.com/candyblog/item/nestle_crunch_crisp

                                                  I didn't like it that much (I would have preferred some real European Nestle chocolate on it). I think I'll stick with the Chocolatier sticks.

                                                    I was going to say that! The Nestle Crunch Crisp is very close to the Bar None. The first time I had one that was my first thought. I love the Bar None and it's the closest thing out there.

                                                      if it had chocolate and crushed nuts it would be Bar None.

                                                        In my opinion, they aren't the same one we are thinking of.  These don't have nuts, and I think the US Bar None had some kind of chocolate layer inside the wafers too.  And these don't even look like wafers, anyway.  A wafer is not the same as a cookie.

                                                        I tried to find some way of ordering the candy, but couldn't.  I had to just send them an email asking them how I could order it.  With the same makers and similar name, I'd still want to try it.  I'll post back with any progress.
