The Worst Candy Bars Based on Toxicity

by | Sep 16, 2020 | Chocolate Information, Chocolate Savant Blog

I recently read an article on that ranked the 19 most popular chocolate bars based on toxicity. Toxicity was not defined, but the article examined each candy bar based on (i) calories; (ii) fat content; (iii) sodium; (iv) carbohydrates; and (v) protein. Here are the results from most to least toxic.

  1. 3 Musketeers
  2. Milky Way
  3. Baby Ruth
  4. Chocolatey PayDay
  5. Mr. Goodbar
  6. Snickers
  7. Twix
  8. Butterfinger
  9. Nestle Crunch
  10. Dove Milk Chocolate Bar
  11. Mounds
  12. Whatchamacallit
  13. Hershey’s Original Milk Chocolate
  14. Almond Joy
  15. Kit Kat Birthday Cake
  16. Cadbury Caramello
  17. Heath Bar
  18. Reese’s Take 5
  19. 100 Grand

You can read the full article here. Surprisingly, the 3 Musketeers was the winner as the most toxic candy bar due to a whopping 36 grams of sugar in one bar. As noted in the article, the American Heart Association recommends no more than 36 grams of sugar per day for an adult male. What impact will that 3 Musketeers have on your child? Something to think about as Halloween approaches.

    If you aren’t familiar with Reese’s Take 5, this candy bar has five main components—peanuts, peanut butter, pretzels, caramel, and chocolate—that are each high in calories, sugar, fat, or a combination of the three. Although these ingredients can be enjoyed separately in moderation, combining them all into one monstrous candy bar spells disaster for your health .
