Is Butterfinger one of the best candy bars?
Full disclosure: this is my mom’s favorite candy bar of all time. If it wasn’t included, I’d be in trouble. It was definitely always around the house when I was growing up and I remember sneaking 3-4 fun size ones from the candy bowl during Halloween. And don’t get me started on a Butterfinger blizzard. Is there anything more delicious?
The Butterfinger is definitely in a class of its own. Yes, it has chocolate, but that’s about all it has in common with the other candy bars on this list. Butterfingers consist of a crispy, flaky peanut butter middle that is enrobed in chocolate.
In a world where chocolate and peanut butter are common, the Butterfinger makes that classic combination unique with the way they put it together. You’re not likely to see peanut butter flake anywhere else like it does in this candy bar.
If you don’t have a pile of chocolate and peanut butter debris on your shirt after eating one, you probably didn’t do it right.
The Butterfinger was first created in 1923 in Chicago by the Curtiss Candy Company. They actually had a contest where the public would send in ideas of what to name the candy bar and Butterfinger was the winning name. Nestle now makes the popular candy bar.
No matter who owns the rights, it’s clearly a popular bar. You don’t stick around for almost 100 years without people liking the product.
