I can only fit so many candy bars on one graphic, so hopefully your favorite made the cut!

If it didn’t, don’t sweat- I’ve got a sortable table below with a ton more candy bars on it. Sort the bars by name, calories, fat, sugar, or protein.

While most of these bars are from the United States (we have the best candy) I snuck in a few others that I’ve tried in both Canada and the UK that I really love as well. Shoutout to Coffee Crisp!

Now, let’s be clear- if you’re going to eat a candy bar, the health factor is probably at the bottom of your list. I mean, it’s candy after all. But, that doesn’t mean that it’s not helpful to know the differences!

While most candy bars will typically be in the 200 calorie range and have a similar nutritional profile, there are definitely differences between them.

I fully believe in flexible dieting- I never consider any food off limits. If I really want some candy, I’m going to enjoy it! That being said, we all have different goals, so every single candy may not be the same to us. You may aim to eat higher fat and lower sugar than I do, in which case, this chart can help you find which bars are the better choices for ya!

I chose to display sugar content instead of total carbs, since candy bars are high in sugar and not many other carbs. Some of the carb counts are a little bit higher than just what the sugar shows you, but very few of these bars contain any amount of fiber, so the difference is pretty negligible. I figure sugar is one of the more important factors here!

Reese’s definitely dominates this list- I had no idea how many different bars they have. Yes, I count Reese’s Cups as candy bars. They’re not bar shaped, but they are the BEST candy out there.

My guide, my rules!

If I were ranking my top 3 candy bars of all time, they would go…

  1. Reese’s Cups
  2. Reese’s Outrageous (it is SO good)
  3. Twix

Peppermint Patties are at the very bottom of my list- I’ll never quite understand the whole mint chocolate thing. And anything with coconut also sits towards the bottom of my list. Nobody wants coconut as a treat. Give me chocolate + peanut butter all day long.

Anyway, let’s dive into the bars! And if I left your favorite off this list, come find me on Instagram and let me know!
