Candy bars are like royalty in the candy world. Most bars have chocolate, some sort of filling, and plenty of extras, which put them above everything else. Even as a child, I knew how precious candy bars were, especially when I went trick-or-treating. I made sure to hit up all the right houses — you know, the ones that always handed out the big candy bars, not just the fun size ones. While any candy bar is a good candy bar, some are better than others. Here are the 20 best candy bars, ranked from good to absolutely amazing.

20. Almond Joy

Almond Joys provide plenty of joy for coconut lovers. While I don't like Almond Joy's taste personally, I like when Almond Joy commercials take you to a tropical paradise when a person bites into one. Being the person that eats chocolate in commercials sounds like my kind of gig.

19. Butterfinger

You better not lay a finger on my Butterfinger...unless you really want it. Butterfingers can be tricky to eat because the peanut butter candy center gets all up in your business, aka your teeth. Still, Butterfingers are a staple to every kid's Halloween diet.

18. Heath

Heath Bars also love to stick to your pearly white teeth. I find it difficult to enjoy a candy bar when I can't even eat it, so that's why this one is toward the end of the list. If you're into the whole crunchy, hard-to-eat candy bar scene, this is the bar for you.

17. Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Bar

First of all, you know darn well anything made by Hershey's will satisfy your chocolate cravings. If you're sick of regular milk chocolate bars, this Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme chocolate will give you the change you never knew you needed in life. 

16. Crunch Bar

Yo VIP, let's kick it, rice, rice, baby. If you couldn't tell from my remix of "Ice Ice Baby" and the name of this candy bar, Crunch bars have crisped rice pieces that give this candy bar its name. Rice and chocolate don't sound like they should be together, but in this candy bar, the combo works.

15. Payday

It's a PayDay!

Most of us like peanuts inside our candy bars, but what about outside? Payday switches up the game with a peanut caramel bar with peanuts on the exterior. This sounds like the healthiest candy bar on the list. All those peanuts should pack some protein, right?

14. Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar

This Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar by Milka was only recently introduced in the candy bar world, but it quickly captured hearts in no time. Since this bar has Oreo bits and creme filling, it's like an ungraded chocolate covered Oreo.

13. Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar

If I was a Hershey's candy bar, I would be honored if someone called me basic. Hershey's smooth milk chocolate bar is brilliantly basic, which means it doesn't need all the extras some of the other bars on this list have. Hershey's chocolate squares make your campfire s'mores hella better.

12. 100 Grand Bar

This is my personal favorite candy bar, but I've never met another person who likes 100 Grand Bars. I always got them from older people at Halloween, so maybe my generation will destroy this food next. Whatever, I think caramel, crisped rice and chocolate taste mighty fine together.

11. Andes Chocolate Mints

Second day in a row eating Andes mints for lunch.

Andes' tiny little chocolate mints might not be the biggest of candy bars, but don't let their size fool you. All I know is that I get turnt when Olive Garden gives me an Andes chocolate mint when I'm done with my pasta. Andes chocolate is the perfect palate cleanser. 

10. Mr. Goodbar

Mr. Goodbar knows what's good. This bar made the top 10 with its peanuts covered in milk chocolate. While I may like Mr. Goodbar, I'm curious as to what Mrs. Goodbar thinks...

9. 3 Musketeers

Sometimes, we need a break from heavily filled candy bars. 3 Musketeers does the job with its light and fluffy whipped chocolate inside. Eating this candy bar reminds me of floating on cloud nine, if cloud nine was made of airy chocolate. 

8. Take 5

If you're sick of typical candy bar fillings, Take 5 feels you. Take 5 bars have caramel, peanut butter, and pretzels. Yup, salty pretzels with caramel and peanut butter. I don't need to take five minutes to eat this bar, I only need one.

7. Clark Bar

I think Clark Bars are highly underrated. Clark Bars are similar to Butterfingers, because they are both milk chocolate peanut butter bars, but Clark Bars are like Butterfingers' better tasting, classier cousin.

6. Caramello

Caramello's caramel is different than what's in other candy bars. Its silky smooth texture is a contrast to most caramel bars that have a harder filling. It doesn't matter how you pronounce caramel, as long as you know how to eat it right.

5. Snickers

Snickers satisfies hunger with its nougat, caramel, and peanuts covered in chocolate. There's no snickering here, Snickers may be one of the best candy bars you can get.

4. Twix

It doesn't matter if you are team left Twix or right, because both sides taste the same. Twix really ups the game with a shortbread biscuit that melts in your mouth with the caramel on top. 

3. Milky Way

Milky Way Simple Caramel

I consider this candy bar the real Milky Way, not that galaxy thing in the Solar System. Although, Milky Way's might as well take you to another galaxy with their chewy nougat and caramel.

2. Reese's Cups

Reese's Cups may not be considered candy bar material because they come in cup form, but who's going to argue about their taste? Peanut butter and chocolate always reigns supreme.

1. Kit Kat

Kit Kat's easy to break pieces make it one of the simplest candy bars to eat. I could eat stacks on stacks of Kit Kat's chocolate covered wafers. After all, my favorite kind of break is a Kit Kat break. Kit Kat deserves the number one spot for best candy bar because no other candy bar on this list is like it.
