Butterfinger VS. 5th Avenue

I like both but would take a 5th Avenue if I had to choose between the two.

    Butterfinger, no question. More subtle and to me, not as sweet.

    I may be a Bart Simpson fan, but you can all have my Butterfinger. Fifth Avenue Bars ROCK! I also really like Mr. Goodbar too, but not in a "Brokeback Mountain" way.

    I wish you could take the chocolate from a 5th avenue and put it on the peanutbutter inside of the butterfinger.

    where does the Clark bar fit into this?

    I didn't include Clark Bar because I've never had one. I've never seen them on sale here in California. Where can I get one??

    Fifth Avenue was best when it was topped with whole almonds.

    Fifth Avenue was once topped with almonds? And they stopped?

    I really like $100,000 when it came out. It was during my childhood, and all the other bars pretty much had emanated from earlier in the century. I considered this one part of "my" history.

    P.S.-- We should also sing a paean to the O'Henry. A truly fine candy bar.

    signman took the words right out of my mouth. 5th avenue were better when they had almonds atop. I still like em better than Butterfinger though. They are more old-fashioned with their hint of molasses. Nothing beats a Clark bar though, except for the Platonic form of a Clark bar, the Zagnut.

    oooooo, I said Zagnut.

    5th Avenue's had at least 2 almonds on top when they were made by Ludens. The current owner (is it Hersey?) reformulated the bar with no almonds.

    Like em both, but love to eat a Butterfinger when eating popcorn (something about the sweet n salty taste). Still see 5th Avenue's around here, but not as much as butterfingers.

    I did a comparison between the two a few months ago with pics.

    link pics - http://www.typetive.com/candyblog/item/head_to_head_butterfinger_vs_5th_avenue/

    Personally, I prefer 5th Avenue because it uses real chocolate and the center seems more flavorful.

    Clark bar has a chewier center and doesn't have real chocolate either. Saint Matt - I found the Clark bar at Cost Plus and recently at the Los Angeles Farmers Market.

    I like Chick-o-Sticks but they're not that easy to find. They're really durable though, because they have no chocolate so you don't to worry about leaving them in the car or anything.

    I'll toss out an exclam for the O Henry. Love em. Have so since the late 50's.

    I'll take the Butterfinger over the 5th Ave. But the Buttefinger has to be FRESH FRESH FRESH. No stale old stock for me.

    About O'Henry's,
    I don't know how many I've never gotten to eat. They're in my top five favorites. So I generally find one in my Christmas stocking. I plan to eat it before New Year's, when I inevitably will, of course, once again, try to get down to fighting weight.

    Well, I put off eating the O'Henry. No problem...I've got 6 days to eat it. You see, I'm so busy eating pfefferneusse and other pfeffer things I would otherwise never think of eating if they weren't just lying around in every nook and cranny of your existence ("Here's your new Porsche, sir; oh, and as promised in our ad, here's your certificate for a lifetime supply of pfefferneusse, and half a lifetime supply of halvah").

    Then January 1 comes. "Oh, rats. I forgot to eat the O'Henry. Now, I can't eat the O'Henry. I hate my life."
    Wonder if Santa picks it up and puts it in the stocking next Christmas?

    I don't have any discipline when it comes to fine candy within my reach. I received a 2 pound box of See's in my mailbox on Tuesday, and by Friday morning it was history, and I ate the whole thing.

    Oh well, I only get one a year.

    5th Avenue by a landslide. Butterfingers are barely edible - chocoplastic coating and hard plastic peanut butter gum that sticks like Gorilla glue when chewed.

    I was born in 1939. When I was growing up, "5th Avenue" was my very favorite chocolate bar. It had those 2 almonds on the top and had much better tasting chocolate than today's version.
    Butterfingers were my second choice. They still seem to taste pretty much the same as when the Curtis Candy Co. made them years ago.

    Amen to that. Butterfinger CAN be superior to the 5th Ave, but only when fresh and not hard as a rock!

    Had some correspondence with Nestle a few years ago about date coding on Butterfinger and Baby Ruth bars. Look for a 3 digit number between 1 and 365. That is the date of manufacture. Don't remember if there is a year code. So a number of 156 means bar was made on June 5th. They said bars are fresh for only 4 maybe 6 months at most.

    Butterfinger if VERY fresh .. but 5th Ave. is more often fresh so I will go for 5th. Ave. for consistency..O'Henry is yummy

    Clark Bars and Chick-O-Sticks have the same prob with being stale 90% of the time
