About This Quiz

We tend to take candy bars for granted these days because we can find them at literally every corner store. Just whole racks of different kinds and different flavors. Some with nuts, some with mint or caramel, some all exotic and mysterious. But it wasn't always like that. Our ancestors had no such luxuries! It wasn't until 1847 when Joseph Fry, of J.S. Fry & Sons, first pressed cocoa and sugar into a bar shape and changed all of history. Two years later, a man named John Cadbury tried his hand at the chocolate game and the rest is history. Chocolate bars were born.

If you like chocolate, and why would you be here if you didn't, then you've probably had your fair share of bars, right? You know the good from the bad, the almonds from the peanuts, the nougat from the caramel. You know Reese's peanut butter versus a Clark bar's peanut butter. But when a bar is stripped down with no wrapper, can you pick it out of a crowd? When it's just you and the chocolate head to head, only a real expert can tell what's what. Prove your chocolate skills. Take the quiz and see which candy bars you know!
