Candy Review: Dark Chunky

Dark Chunky Wrapped

I have to confess that before reading Jamie’s review of Chunky, I had only eaten one in my entire life. Why? Well, I think Stewie Griffin from Family Guy said it best:

“Yeah, that’s what kids want in their candy. Fruit. Why don’t you put sunflower seeds in the Ding Dongs while you’re at it?”

But because of Jamie’s professed love for this underrated candy, I bought one shortly after her review. Now, kids might not like fruit in their candy, but as an adult (sorta), I found my tongue had grown accustomed to the flavor I had once disliked.

I wasn’t in love with Chunky, but felt the two of us had patched up a hole that had separated us for so many years. I also believed that would be the last of our meetings. Boy was I wrong.

This past weekend, I popped into the Dollar Tree store to purchase some GooGoo Clusters. To my surprise, stationed right next to them was the new Dark Chunky. I was caught off-guard since I hadn’t heard anything about this product’s release. Though I felt Chunky was O.K., I wondered if dark chocolate was the missing element in the equation.

Retro Candy Review: Chunky Bar

Every year, the internet spews out a million lists of overrated and underrated things. This band isn’t as good as your brother thinks it is; this movie was tremendous, even though only four people saw it; this book may be a best seller, but it’s pretty lousy; nobody appreciates the greatness of slugs, and so on and so forth. These lists can be annoying, as some people tend to hate everything that is even remotely popular, but at times the lists can also be incredibly validating: sometimes it’s nice to see a popular-yet-stupid thing get ripped to shreds, and even nicer to see an underrated gem get its due.

It’s with this in mind that I tell you, Candy Addicts, that the Nestle Chunky bar is the most underrated candy bar of all time.

Let’s start with the basics: a Chunky bar, (which got its cringe-worthy name in the 1930s, after inventor Philip Silvershein decided to name the bar after his granddaughter, who apparently was also called “Chunky” – for obvious reasons), is a slab of creamy Nestle milk chocolate, raisins, and peanuts. It’s a bit like a giant Raisinet/Goober hybrid, as if someone left a box of Goobers and Raisinets to melt atop each other and then re-harden into a trapezoid of awesome.
