Clark bar is a classic candy bar that hasn’t been as popular as say, Snickers. It’s been around for years, but hasn’t acquired the star status. Currently Clark bar is made by New England Candy Company (NECCO) and comes in milk and dark chocolate varieties. Since Clark bar is kinda hard to find, I felt extremely lucky to find this Clark Dark in a Rite Aid in the Philadelphia area.
So what is a Clark bar? I admit the first time I came across one I didn’t know what it was. Clark bar is similar to a Butterfinger bar: a peanut butter crisp surrounded by chocolate. Yet in my mind, Clark bar is more “natural”. The peanut butter insides of a Clark bar aren’t neon yellow/orange like Butterfinger’s, plus the chocolate is real, unlike the Butterfinger’s mockolate coating. So Clark bar appeals more to me because of this.
Now I know what you’re wondering, how does it taste?
The Clark bar’s bite has a wonderful crispiness to it that’s very pleasing to chew. The chocolate is nice and rich with a sweetness that’s hard for me to declare it as milk to dark chocolate because the peanut butter crisp interior is just so powerful of a flavor. The color of the chocolate is darker, so it fits the description. The peanut butter crisp interior has the really strong flavor of a creamy, salty peanut butter and it matches beautifully with the chocolate. The chocolate, according to the ingredients list, it also the real thing, so all I can say is, as far as I’m concerned, I’d much rather eat a Clark bar than Butterfinger.
Overall, I’m impressed. This was really tasty. If you haven’t ever tried a Clark bar, I’d pick one up if you ever come across one.
