Interesting oddball episode. Shame there weren’t any candy bars from the UK as we all know that’s where the best ones all come from. My personal favourite is too close to call. A tie between Topic, Double Decker, Toffee Crisp, and possibly the daddy of them all, Munchies. Worst by a long way are Reeses…nasty.

    I’m down with the kit kat myself. Eating the layers off one at a time makes me happy.

    Hey Gary,

    I am a fan of WLTV and think it is very important to find new and interesting ways to make wine education fun. My contribution to wine education is to put together an event in Toronto, Canada to educate the Millennial Demographic about wine. When I watched your episode on candy bars, a lightbulb went off for an event theme.

    Would you be able to give me a few other candybar wine match ups? Are there any candy bars that go with a white wine that you could recommend?

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    QOTD: Snickers Dark or Butterfinger. Frozen Twix are good too.

    Sorry gang, but I’m catching up so I’m late on the feedback.
    QOTD: You know, the $100,000 candy bar was my absolute favorite as a child–probably tied with Snickers. However, I ate one this past Halloween, and it was waaaaaaaay too sweet for me. I guess I’m getting old because I now prefer Cacao Reserve 65% Dark Chocolate by Hershey. Go figure!

    In college, wine and candy didn’t go well for me one night. Rough night. Snickers doesn’t work.
    But I would love to try wine and Reece’s Peanut Butter cups.

    QotD: Kit Kats are good but I love Reese’s anything and have a hard time resisting them. Had Reese’s Whoppers recently, a combination of two of my favorite candies!

    QOTD: PayDay. Probably pair it with a chardonnay, or dessert wine.
    Cool show!

    Really intresting show! Never thought about candy bars and wine before. This is why we love you, Gary! QOTD: Snickers, with Abba Zabba a close second. Sour Patch Kids still rule the day, though.

    Great wine, Gar! When I first saw the title I had to chuckle, but now I’m definitely gonna try a candy bar the next time I pop a bottle!

    QOTD: king size Snickers baby

    QOTD: Marabou’s (swedish chocolate producer) ‘Schweizer Nöt’ (swiss nut). Really well balanced, not too sugarfied.

    QOTD: Tradre's Joe's dark chocolate covered espresso beans…. The flavors play so well with so many big red wines!!

  • Trevor Palen

    Butterfinger

    Resee's is a close second

  • John__J

    I’m surprised you didn’t have a whatchamacallit on.
    I don’t get the 3 musketeer’s either. I think someone put it on the market as a practical joke and somehow people actually started to buy it.
    Qota: too tough to pick just 1
