However, I fondly remember the old original Clark Bar that had a strip of chewy caramel down the center of the crispy part which was then enveloped in thick milk chocolate... I loved to eat each layer off - - working toward the caramel in the middle...
Never knew that type of Clark Bar. For me, Clark Bars were peanutbutter crisp/brittle layers surrounded by chocolate - akin to the popular butterfinger, only not so buttery, but rather more dense (less buttery - not dense in a bad way, though, just different) and better chocolate than bf. For me, as a kid I wasn't a big fan, but didn't really knwo the clark bar, but then after butterfingers were popular I sort of found Clark Bars and liked them better.
The caramel is an intersting twist. Wonder why it changed.
I have to say, though, while I prefer the Clark Bar to a Butterfinger, those Butterfinger balls are really quite addictive. More chocolate to peanutbutter crispy layers - works for me for butterfinger alternative.
It's like milky way, in a way. I prefer Snickers in general, but a fun size milky way (dark) with more chocolate percentage due to surface area difference, is the best. Yet, in a snickers bar, I prefer the less chocolate ratio of the original to the fun size or snack size. Haven't figure out why I feel that way. Just personal taste I guess. Maybe it has to do with the peanuts.
Anyways, when given the choice of Clark Bar or Butterfinger, I always go for Clark. It seems like a better quality product, in part due to texture.
