Chocolate Bar World Cup Preview – and first playoff

Thanks to sterling world-wide scouting by @captain_doodle we have 29 potential entrants for the forthcoming Chocbar World Cup. In this mixed up, muddled up, shook up world there are millions of chocolate products, so we have had to establish the following qualifying criteria (otherwise we’d have entrants like this Lemon Meringue chocolate bar) – the bar must be a bar, and it must be fairly well-known

Use these as a talking point – which have we missed? And which shouldn’t be here?

1) Aero, 2) Wispa, 3) KitKat, 4) Milk Chocolate (e.g. Dairy Milk, Yorkie), 5) Ripple, 6) Plain Chocolate (e.g. Bournville), 7) Crunchie, 8) Snickers which should be Marathon, 9) Twirl, 10) Twix, 11) Mars, 12) Caramel, 13) Toblerone, 14) Flake, 15) Double Decker, 16) Time Out, 17) Milky Bar, 18) Lion Bar, 19) Boost, 20) Toffee Crisp, 21) Picnic, 22) Bounty, 23) Milky Way, 24) Terry’s Chocolate Orange bar, 25) Drifter, 26) Creme egg bar, 27) Topic, 28) Curly Wurly, 29) Hersheys

Being perceptive, you will immediately see that the list is three short of the required number of 32 entrants. I hope you’ll be able to fill those places, and we shall also have playoffs for at least one of them. For example, I’ll allow one oddly flavoured chocolate bar into the finals. Here, right now, is the poll to decide which flavour that will be. VOTE WISELY!

Disqualified for not being a bar: Maltesers, Rolo , Smarties, M&Ms, Minstrels, Munchies, Buttons, Aero Bubbles, Magic Stars, After Eights, Crispello.

Disqualified for being a horrible orange material that looks like it should be terrorising people in Dr. Who: Caramac.

Disqualified for being mostly a biscuit even though it’s gorgeous: them Disco bars from Aldi.

  1. Never felt more “divided by a common language”! And, y’know, different confectionary contexts.


  2. I dooo want to vote for the Lemon Meringue Bar…lol.
    I also believe Maltesers now come as a bar too… He he, ‘cos I really, really like it!
    Can we also include ‘Fry’s Turkish Delight’ ?


    • Yes indeed, those will take part in a “Fan’s Favourite” playoff in a day or two. Trouble is, if I included every follower’s favourite, I’d have 256 entrants to sift through. At least 32 is manageable.


  3. Caramac?


  4. ah, just noticed you have inexplicably disqualified delicious Caramac. Boo!


  5. You forgot Starbars. Mmmm!


  6. I’m with Lisa, Fry’s Turkish delight should be included 🙂


  7. Well, I’m fond of O’Henry bars… Tbh I haven’t bought a chocolate bar in ages, I’ll have to think about it!


  8. Dairy Milk and Yorkie can’t be lumped together. They’re different chocolates for different moods – Yorkie’s a “let’s take on the world (while hurting your mouth)” bar, whereas Dairy Milk is far more soothing all round. They should be separate – DM v Yorkie final ahoy!


    • As I mentioned above, if I start filtering out varieties of things, there’ll be a million bars to vote from and my mind would be shattered by the prospect. Now sit still and drink your milk.
