TOP 20 CANADIAN CHOCOLATE BARS

Here is a list of Candy Funhouse’s Top 20 Canadian Chocolate Candy Bars that their candy lovers have compiled. It was hard and frustrating. But, the journey was very sweet.

20. Big Turk
A classic Turkish delight chocolate bar coated in delicious milk chocolate. One of the most unique chocolate bars in Canada, made by Nestle Canada. Many Canadians have a love/hate relationship with this mysterious chocolate bar. With its red, white and blue packaging, it will often remind people of the look of Bazooka Joe bubble gum or even toothpaste! Don’t be fooled by its packing, it’s a combination of jelly coated in a thin, light layer of Nestle Chocolate. The Big Turk is the perfect bar for chocolate lovers with only 4 grams of fat and 60 grams of chocolate. A healthy chocolate bar?! The Big Turk is the ideal alternative to an average chocolate bar.

19. Cadbury Crunchie
First introduced into the Canadian market in the 1960s by Cadbury Canada, the Cadbury Crunchie is a Canadian iconic candy bar ever since, with its unique recipe that is found nowhere else but in Canada. Did you know that Cadbury Chocolate is made locally in Toronto? The Cadbury Crunchie Bar started in late 1929 in the U.K. by J S. Fry & Sons. Cadbury Crunchie composes of honeycomb sponge toffee, which is produced in large slabs and then covered in the delicious milk chocolate we love. It is a classic Canadian chocolate bar that is loved by millions.

18. Cherry Blossom Candy
Cherry Blossom is one of the oldest candy bars in Canada. Originally made by the Walter M. Lowney Company, as they started manufacturing it in the 1890s. Now Hershey Canada keeps this old-fashioned candy tradition going. A nostalgic candy, it consists of a maraschino cherry and cherry syrup surrounded by chocolate, shredded coconut, and roasted peanuts. Cherry Blossoms come wrapped in tin foil within a nostalgic cardboard box.

17. Cadbury Mr.Big
As the name suggests, My Big is a BIG candy bar; it’s the biggest candy bar produced by Cadbury in Canada (around 8 inches in length). Although very common in Canada, Mr. Big is also available in Hungary, Poland, and some areas of the United States. It’s filled with vanilla wafer coated in caramel and rice crisp and coated in delicious Cadbury chocolate. Mr. Big is the only Cadbury candy bar to have an ice cream variant made by Nestle.

16. Skor Candy Bar
Launched and made in Canada since 1983 by Hershey’s Canada. The Skor Bar is a Canadian favourite, and also a favourite by our Candy Funhouse online shoppers! The candy bar is a slab of decadent butter toffee, which is covered in a delicious milk chocolate coating. It is very similar to the Daim bar, which is a Swedish candy bar made with crunchy almonds. Of course, the Canadian version must be better, right? YES!!

15. Eat-More Candy Bars
The Lowney company deserves all the credit for starting Eat-more Candy Bars. Hershey Canada acquired them on July 1, 1987. Angus B. MacDonald named Eat-More in the early 1930s. The bar is chewy and stretches when you eat it. It consists of dark toffee, peanuts, and creamy chocolate. A caramel version came to market in 1995, which replaced the dark toffee with caramel, but sadly it has since been discontinued. The Eat-More candy bar is beyond satisfying and an awesome retro snack.

14. Crunch Chocolate Bar

13. Crispy Crunch Candy Bars
Crispy Crunch is a delicious chocolate bar with a crispy peanut flake centre. The history of Crispy Crunch has an exciting story:  Harold Osin, a candy roller with the William Neilson company, developed this delightful Canadian chocolate bar in 1930. Interestingly, Neilson submitted the concept for crispy crunch in a chocolate bar contest. Neilson won and received a $5.00 prize. The original recipe was a log-shaped bar, not like the crispy crunch we know and love today. Neilson sold the brand to Cadbury in 1996, and the sweet story continues to this day. Crispy Crunch is a Canadian chocolate classic.
