Best candy bar ever is 5th Avenue. Similar to a Butterfinger except the crunchy peanut butter is not as sticky and doesn't gum up your mouth. More flaky. You can only find them occasionally now in some Walgreens or CVS stores.

Yeah, those are good.

Reese's made one very similar to that as well...I can't remember what it was called, but I liked it.

I tried a Take 5 after a mention on Doc’s podcast. It was pretty darn good.

Take 5 wasn't bad, but I'm not a huge fan of pretzels in candy.

Nutrageous is an outstanding candy bar, however.

Have you ever had pretzel crunch? It is a homemade treat. We first had it at Van's Frozen Custard in East Dundee as a topping. There are recipes online. Although I caution you....you won't be able to stop snacking on it.

There's this Mexican candy called Selz - a little hint of lime and this bitter powder inside. Love those things but they're not sour enough. The warheads aren't that sour, either.

I’ve only bought them a couple times. Was a big fan of chocolate covered pretzels back in the day and found it reminiscent of that. I’ve probably had less than a half dozen candy bars since June though so I really do tend to lean towards my favorites now and not the ancillary ones.

Is that like Moose Munch with the caramel, chocolate and other stuff all gobbed together?

And I drive past Van's every day going to work. Good stuff.

This made me look it up. I was actually thinking of the Reese's Crispy Crunchy

I don't know Moose Munch. There's no chocolate. Just go into Van's and get custard with pretzel crunch on top. You will thank me.
