Candy Review: Zero Bar

Zero Bar

Many people do not know of the Zero Bar, which I have heard referred to as the “albino Snickers” many times before. It’s a candy bar that has been around since the 1920′s and was meant to be kept cold in the freezer and eaten at “zero” degrees. It is described on the package as “Caramel, Peanuts and Almond Nougat enrobed with White Fudge”. The white “chocolate” coating makes the Zero bar very unique, as well as its iconic futuristic silver wrapper.

I am a hater of nuts in my chocolate and candy bars, but for some reason I don’t mind them in this one. I think it’s because the peanuts are not whole or in large chunks for that matter. The pieces are small, easily chewed and not big enough to get stuck in my teeth while still being large enough so you know that you just ate one. I’d say they are about 1/4 the size of a full peanut.

The nougat is noticeably nutty and slightly sweet. It’s the most flavorful and prominent nougat of any candy bar out there. It doesn’t just taste of “airy sweet fluff” like other candy bars. The caramel is just perfect – it’s sweet and buttery with a soft consistency that is neither runny nor rock hard. The “white fudge” that enrobes the bar is thick like most candy bar coatings. It’s very sweet and has a vanilla taste to me, which I find odd since no vanilla (or vanillin) is mentioned on the ingredients list.

The Zero bar is delicious no matter how you like to eat it; in big bites or by nibbling each of the different parts separately, like I do. The only downside to this bar is how difficult it is to find in stores!

    Doesn’t the Zero bar look mysteriously similar to the Uno bar? I don’t think I’ve actually ever tried a Zero bar, though!

    This is my aunt’s absolute favorite candy bar and definately one of my top 10. I guess I’m lucky because I can find them pretty much everywhere.

    @Mariko: Yes it does, doesn’t it? I wonder which design came first…..?

    @Gabby: Really, you are so lucky? What stores do you see them in? I’d love to know! :)

    This was my 2nd favorite candy bar as a kid (next to Snickers…or was it Rollo?). I never knew about the “zero degrees” thing. The next time I find one, I’ll have to try it out!

    Mariko – the wrappers for both bars are silver, but the U-NO is covered in milk chocolate and has a “fluffed truffle” center. I think I confused them as well for a long time.

    Hmm…I tasted one last night, and there were no chunks of nuts in it. In fact, it was so boring that I felt it lacked nay real difference in texture. I currently have the remainder of it in the freezer, so I’ll see if my opinion changes at all. Might I add I was able to find it at Target, for anyone who is having trouble locating them. I’ll have to try the Uno; I’ve seen it in stores but never tried it.
    Weird candy is the reason I love Cracker Barrel’s General store and Watson’s Drug Store in the Orange Circle. :)
