We're Americans, and when an afternoon sugar craving strikes, we have a gaggle of candy bars to choose from. Sometimes, when our blood sugar is low we make terrible choices. This has led us to tasting most of the candy bars currently for sale in America, and some of them -- quite frankly -- are better than others.

These are the best candy bars, ranked in order. These are all candy bars that a popular and sold in America. Do not recommend a Crunchie bar or a Flake bar or a Yorkie bar to me. They are delicious, but have no place here. Come on this journey through peanuts, coconut, nougat, caramel and (of course) chocolate, and see how your favorite candy bar stacks up.

This candy bar has a ridiculous, un-spellable name, but it is freaking delicious.

The best of the fun sizes.
12
Almond Joy

ALWAYS, ALWAYS FEEL LIKE A NUT.

Kit Kat

These would have ranked better, if not for the disgusting commercials they insist on airing where people mouth-crunch the tune of the Kit Kat jingle.

Guess what -- they're the same, calm down.

There is really nothing else on earth like a Butterfinger.
5
Twix

The reason that there are two Twix per package is because immediately after finishing one, you NEED another instantaneously.

Sky Bar

If you have never had a Sky Bar, you need to seriously re-evaluate your life choices. IT'S FOUR CANDY BARS IN ONE.

3 Musketeers

What's that? You wrapped a chocolate cloud in chocolate? And I can buy it for $1.00?
2
Caramello
Amazon
This candy bar is nothing short of a miracle. Decent chocolate, perfectly flowing caramel, always a mess, always delicious. It was almost #1.

Milky Way

If a 3 Musketeers bar and a Caramello had a baby, it would be a Milky Way. And then we would eat that baby. Sorry. That got weird.
