10 Chocolate Bars You'll Only Find in Canada

Canadian Chocolate Bars are Epic!

It's no surprise that us Canadians love chocolate, but compared to Americans we prefer a richer, smoother chocolate. These were the results when The Food Network writer, Catherine Jheon conducted a taste test comparing Canadian chocolate bars to American bars. Of course, the outcome resulted in our Canadian chocolate bars being the most loved. Most of the participants claimed that the American chocolate bars were "bland" and "chalky" in comparison to the Canadian chocolate bars. American chocolate bars use a different recipe, along with some other additives that result in a more coarse and waxy texture. Now, don't get me wrong, I would never advise you to turn down any chocolate bar, but if you want to be patriotic in your chocolate bars, here are some of our most loved Canadian classics!

Caramilk

Ooey, gooey caramel, covered in silky, smooth milk chocolate. An uncomplicated delicious chocolate bar that is only available in Canada. I guess they'll never know the " Caramik secret"!

Crunchie

Simple, sweet and right to the point! It's honeycomb toffee that is surrounded in milk chocolate. This bar most definitely has the perfect name, as you will feel the crunch, with every last delicious bite!

WunderBar

This bar was described as "the greatest candy bar ever created" by Danial Tovrov, a reporter for the International Business Times. You just might need a trip to Canada for this one! (Yes, it's that good). Wunderbar is the best peanut butter and chocolate experiences you will ever have. A chewy peanut butter filling, with rich caramel and some rice crisps, all smothered in milk chocolate.

Crispy Crunch

In the 90's, this bar was distributed in the US but failed to "wow" their market. That's okay, we'll just have to keep it here! Creamy milk chocolate wrapped around a delicious, flaky peanut butter center.

Aero

Nestle attempted to launch this chocolate bar in the US, in the 1980's. Unfortunately Aero did not become a hit with the Americans, more bubbly chocolate for us! Aero is a rich milk chocolate bar with the unique addition of a bubbly texture.

Maltesers

While a similar treat called "Whoppers" exists in the States, they just cannot be compared to our beloved Maltesers. Not all malt balls are created equal. Maltesers are coated with a generous helping of milk chocolate.

Coffee Crisp

If you ask a Canadian how they like their coffee, they might just say "crisp"! This bar is one of the most popular Canadian chocolate bars. Layers of crisp vanilla wafers, sandwiched in between a coffee like candy, all coated in ripply, milk chocolate. As the slogan says, "makes for a nice light snack".

Cherry Blossom

Only us Canadians know about this delicious treat all wrapped up in a cute little, vintage looking yellow box! The Cherry Blossom is an old-fashioned concoction, consisting of a juicy maraschino cherry, surrounded in a mixture of roasted peanuts, coconut and milk chocolate. Sounds good eh? No wonder we've been eating these for over 100 years!

Glosette Raisins

The number one candy sold in movie theatre's across Canada! Yes, Americans have Raisinettes, but let's face it they are nothing compared to our Glosette Raisins! Plump, juicy sweet raisins, covered in thick, glossy milk chocolate coating. A trip to the movies is just not complete without a box of these!

Smarties

Do you eat the red ones last? If you're Canadian, you'll know what I'm talking about. Once marketed towards children, these had the alphabet printed on them, and were intended to be used as a learning tool!  Don't we all wish we learned our ABC's with Smarties? Even as an adult, I just cannot resist these candy-coated, brightly covered pieces of milk chocolate. If you ask for Smarties in the states, you will end up with what we know as "Rockets", which are a completely different thing. As a Canadian, my Smarties will always include chocolate!

Our friends across the border do have some delicious chocolate bars of their own, but none compare to our Canadian favourites!
