18 Popular Chocolate Bars From Around the World

By List Gazette

I love candy bars. I also love the smell of gas, which has led to some loitering at gas stations and an insuing restraining order, but that's beside the point. Candy bars are delicious, and they are enjoyed almost everywhere. Here are some popular candy bars from around the world.

Orion, also called the "blue star," is the major player in candy bars.

Galaxy chocolate is highly popular in United Kingdom and the Middle East as well as in Africa. The brand is also known as Dove in many parts of the world including the United States, People's Republic of China, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, France and Greece. However, the chocolate used in Dove products in the United States is different in taste from the chocolate used in Galaxy in the United Kingdom.

The Netherlands: Balisto

Balisto is a wholemeal biscuit bar snack, consisting of a digestive biscuit center and a variety of milky cream toppings, and coated in milk chocolate.

I think these deserve honorable mention: BUBU LUBU

I first discovered them at Target. They are from Mexico. A Zombie Flesheater's Chocolate Fantasy featuring a strawberry and marshmallow filling with a chocolate covering. It is manufactured by Ricolino Candies (under the control of the Bimbo Company). Bubu Lubu is currently available in some H.E.B. grocery stores and Wal-Mart stores in Texas, Mercado del Pueblo in Georgia, as well as in some Chicago and Miami, Florida area Target stores, as well as NV gas stations and Mexican owned grocery stores in New Brunswick, NJ. Its packaging describes the candy as "jalea y malvavisco cubiertos con sabor chocolate" or "strawberry-flavored jelly and marshmallow with chocolate flavored coating". Bubu Lubu is often eaten frozen.
