tidbits: Payday and Mr. Goodbar

henceforth tidbits will refer to short, sweet reviews about candy that i eat on a semi-regular basis (i.e., i didn't buy this for the first time just to review it), also some more common candy. nothing too fancy, you know, old favorites, classic stand-bys. that sort of thing. first in this long line of quickies is the Payday.

my favorite candy bar since i was little, even with the lack of chocolate. yes, generally i am a big chocolate fan, but when it comes to candy that is mass produced and designed for long, convenience store shelf life, sometimes the chocolate isn't all that great. in such cases one can always rely on the delicious peanut-y, caramel-y goodness of the Payday to withstand the test of time.

rating: 10 (for old time's sake)

Mr. Goodbar is one of those candy bars i always took for granted. as a kid i thought that the more stuff there was in the candy, the better it was. therefore Mr. Goodbar didn't appeal to me as much as, say, a Snickers. chocolate with only peanuts? say what? but then i tried one and realized that in some cases simplicity is the way to go. granted, Hershey's chocolate can be a bit much at times, but the peanuts help diminish the sweetness and add a good crunch. also, i'm always pleased with the amount of peanuts, not too much or too little.
