    I would have gone with the Hershy bar.  For a century it's been a go-to chocolate for baking, snack machines, soldier's rations, it's dang near everywhere.

    Are they insane?
     
    They cite Kit Kat as being made and marketed for "sharing". 
    What do these idiots think the individual squares of the classic Hershey Bar were for?
     
    In their childhoods my grandparents were neatly breaking apart Hershey's and sharing; in those days it was big enough to share.
     
    I remember when candy bars were a nickel; Kit Kat first appeared well after that.

    I remember my Mom stashing one of those gigantic Hershey bars with almonds in the inner most sanctum of the cupboard. I always found her hiding place...

    MH on occasion buys me a Hershey bar with almonds.  I'm not a fan of chocolate, but I'm a huge fan of nuts.......so occasionally I will break off a piece and eat it.  I don't need to stash it, he doesn't like nuts!

    I've been trying for years to get them to make a malted milk Kit Kat.

    Who opens their mail?

    Hey, hey......I resemble that remark.  I don't want to get flagged or banned, so just forget that I ever said I'm a huge fan of nuts.

    KitKat?  That's just insane.   It would have to be the Hershey Chocolate Bar.  Geez, those bars were even part of a soldier's rations in war time.

    It's obvious, all of us know more about Candy bars than these idiots.
    The Hershey Bar won WWII.
    It was a morale booster from home.
    It gave energy to GI's when they needed it.
    It was a trust & friend builder when given by GI's to Europeans who suffered under the Nazi's.
    It was the basis upon which all the other Candy Bar companies were founded.
    Kit Kat's????????????? Get Real!

    I can't say that I have A single favorite candy bar. Kit Kat would be in the top 5 though.

    Snickers or Kit Kat when standing at the checkout.
     
    Scotch Mallow, butterscotch square, Bordeaux and marzipan are my top 4 picks at See's.
     
    Scotch Mallow will always be in my bag, but the others change.

    I always get See's Milk Chocolate Nuts and Chews for my mother.  Neither of us like marshmallow.  They also make a mean peanut brittle!

    My indulgent sweet desert is a Skor bar with a Heath Chocolate Covered Blue Bunny icream bar. I like both Skors and Heaths....Skor gets the slight edge.

    Kit Kat is my second favorite, next to Three Musketeers. Twix is a third (if I can't get a Kit Kat). Hershey Bars were my favorite as a young girl, before I discovered Three Musketeers. I can see why Kit Kat is influential, I guess. I think most of those "Best of" lists are just silly.

    Interesting responses.  I have a tough time deciding whether Kit Kat or Reece's Sticks are my favorite.  Perhaps it's a tossup.

    I love Hershey Bars, Clark Bars, Snickers, Reece's Peanut Cups, any Candy with Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Kit Kat pretty far down the list!

    Chocolate and nuts, quite the combo. Peanut, almonds, cashews, pecan, macadamian it doesn't matter.

    As far as commercial candy bars...I'd much rather be under the influence of the Canadian candy bar... Coffee Crisp.
