As I was eating my most favorite candy bar in the world (Baby Ruth), I experienced a brief moment of panic. What if they STOPPED MAKING BABY RUTHS? To ease my fear, I decided to see how it stacked up popularity-wise. After all, if it’s popular, they’ll keep making it, right?
While Baby Ruth didn’t make the top 10 most popular candy bars in the US, it’s in no danger of extinction thanks to its popularity among males. But just in case you’re interested, here are the top selling candy bars in the US. The top 3 change position now and then – and Butterfinger, Dove, Almond Joy and Hershey’s Cookies and Cream flirt with top ten status – but these 8 always make the list.
And where to find candy bars for cheap? Walmart, Kmart and Target always sell individual bars for less than the $1.09 suggested retail price. Gas station mini-marts are also a great place to find limited time displays with discounted pricing (I got my Baby-Ruth there for 75 cents!). Look for special displays and limited time sales at drugstores, too. And, if you can pace yourself, buying in bulk is always a good way to save. Amazon offers multi-bar packages (usually 24 – 36 bars) for as low as 50 cents each.
