I know they're not really considered a chocolate bar, but Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are my favorite! I've loved them since I was a child and still enjoy snacking on them as an adult.

@eraten: I would absolutely consider that a chocolate bar. It may not in the shape of a bar, but all the characteristics mimic a chocolate bar.

Oh, they had Reese's Peanut Butter Martini's too. Ever have a Peanut Butter cup infused with vodka.....yummmmmmmm:

My current favorite for fulfilling the occasional chocolate yearning is Vosges' milk chocolate Mo's Bacon Bar. The mix of bacon, chocolate, and salt is absolute perfection and I love to take a little piece and just let it slowly melt and fall apart on my tongue and then crunch up the remaining bacon bits with my front teeth and debate with myself if I really want another piece and then take another little piece and then another and suddenly the whole bar is gone.

In the almost exclusively chocolate category, my favorites are (edit: In no particular order):
Nestle Crunch
Most Lindt/Lindor varieties
Hershey's
Cadbury's
It's hard to pick a favorite as they all have their own personalities.

I came home from Hershey with one of those huge hershey bars (5 lbs? 10? i forget) - took us a while to get through it lol.

@eraten: same here for the peanut butter cups (minis, regular, or large lol - i'll take any of them) :) in terms of chocolate snacks, it's one of the few "candy store" one i'll stick with. I also enjoy hershey's almond bar, I get too much after-taste with the rest of hershey's or nestle's line-up.

Other than reese's cups - i like the lindt touch of sea-salt dark chocolate, as well as their truffles (nearly all flavors) but in general, and after some expensive dentist bills as an adult, resulting from a severe sweet tooth while younger... i've shied away from chocolates a lot.

If I can find the white chocolate Reese's Cups, I will gorge on them until I am filled with shame and self-loathing. There is no such thing as 'moderation' if I come into contact with them.

I like white chocolate best (I know, a misnomer), and the darkest blackest hearted chocolate second best. Consequently, when I am treating myself to chocolate, I usually buy small batch premium chocolates. I do enjoy Lindt truffles as well. When I am just grabbing something to eat on a plane or at a meeting, I like Mounds ( I like Bounty better, it's just not available where I live) and KitKat, but my favorite candy bar is Payday, with no chocolate at all. I love the contrast beteween the salted peanuts and the caramel, and I like the caramel texture in Payday better than in any other caramel candy.

PayDays.. They also double as my favorite day of the week

Lindor Truffles -- I like them all, but my favorite are the dark varieties.

A Caramilk from Cadbury is pretty much unbeatable to me, but they are so hard to find in the states.

Reese's in any cup form (i.e. not pieces) would be the second place.

Snickers third.

hmm...for american candy, i like twix, reese's peanut butter cups (especially holiday versions...more peanut butter to chocolate ratio) and york peppermint patties.

from europe, i love lindt stracciatella truffles and lion bars.

from japan, i love green tea kit kats.

i really just love chocolate, though...mmmm.

@kfujita: Yes it is. So amazing. Interesting, i wasn't aware of the caramello. Caused me to do a bit of research though. Apparently those are licensed from Cadbury by Hershey, so its definitely not the same chocolate or ingredients, so you're right, not the same. I think I found something much closer though in the past. The "Dairy Milk" lineup from Cadbury is available in the states. They make a "Dairy Milk Caramel" variety which is pretty close (I have not had an opportunity for a side-by-side comparison). At least it's not being made just under license. I think I found it just in my local walgreens with the rest of their Dairy Milk bars. I keep forgetting to look when I've been there more recently because I never get the craving when I am in the states cause I just think "oh those don't exist here anyway" and move on.

I don't know if this qualifies either, but I'm addicted to Andes Mints.

Galaxy Ripple. That's my bane right there.

I liked Hershey's products before they stopped making their bars out of chocolate. Mr. Goodbar, Take 5, and all the rest. Look, I'll pay more for a superior product. Don't make me eat that crap and thank you for it. I'll still eat Hershey bars and those with almonds but that's about it. Otherwise I like to eat German Mars w/almonds.

There are so many good ones, but if I had to chose one to eat for the rest of my life......3 Musketeers

I stopped eating mass-market chocolate years ago. Besides tasting inferior to specialty chocolate bars, much of it is loaded with HFCS, stabilizers, emulsifiers, extenders and other junk. And virtually ALL of the mass-market producers are against the GMO labeling initiatives popping up around the country. I like Dagoba but stopped purchasing their product after Hershey bought them. Hershey is a leading opponent of truth-in-labeling.

My faves are : Theo Chocolate, Guittard, Lindt, Girardelli, and most independent artisan shops. I like to search out the best chocolate shops wherever I travel, but I am a hardcore foodie and have cooked on & off in fine restaurants most of my life.

Like many in the area went on a field trip to the Hershey factory, back when they actually allowed tours through the factory on a catwalk, unlike now where the tour is through an exhibit building. The smell of chocolate permeates into your pores and is something you will remember for the rest of your life.

@countdown: ooh is that the canadian caramilk? i've heard good things about that one. i guess the stores around here just carry caramello and say "it's the same thing". :(

Well, I really like any milk or dark chocolate, but my favorite depends on the my mood or what's nearby.

I usually prefer milk chocolate with peanuts or caramel, dark chocolate with coconut or almonds, or dark chocolate with just a hint of mint. Yummy!

It's hard to choose a favorite when they are all so good!

Simply the best candy bar I've ever had: FastBreak

Guess what, it's discontinued. I have no idea why. It was the perfect candy bar. No fancy BS; just milk chocolate, nougat and peanut butter.

And, a more recent contender:

Peanut Butter cups from Aldis grocery stores~creamy p.b. and great chocolate, and sponge candy.

I tend to like the fancy smanchy ones (very dark or white ideally), but as for the more simple ones, Kit Kats and Twix are my favorites. Snickers are pretty good too. I freeze the Kit Kats and Snickers.

The white chocolate sea salt caramels from The Candy Basket were flipping amazing, too.

My very favorites are from the UK though. Lion bars, Raisin Yorkie, and Boost... So delicious... Love when my mother in law sends care packages with a couple of those inside for me!
