What are your favorite Hershey's Minatures?

Someone in my office always brings in a bag of Hershey's minatures, and the same thing always happens. Within a day, all of the Krackels are gone, then the regular Hershey's, then the Mr. Goodbar, and then the Special Dark (yuck).

It's obvious that the Krackels are the favorite. So in addition to asking what are your favorite, I'm wondering. How come Hersheys dosen't make a full size Krackel bar to compete with Nestle's Crunch (or do they)? How come they don't sell bags of minis with only Krackels (or do they)?

How come when there's a bowl of them on the table, I can't stop eating them (or can I?)

Growing up, i thought everyone's favorite was Special Dark. But now, i'm learning that most people don't like the dark chocolate.

Ever have Lindt chocolates? Those are goood!

Hershey used to have a full size Krackel bar back in the 70's.

Special Dark all the way!!

I even use it for cooking/baking. Not the minatures, of course. But Hershey makes Special Dark bars in a 7 or 8 oz. size.

Here you go. I love them, too. But there is something about minitures. I like the Reese's Peanut butter cups better miniture. I wish it meant I ate less.

I am also surprised that the other companies don't do this. I would love mini twix with 3 muscatteers, you can have the snickers, I don't do nuts in candy.

You could put all the larger bars in a bowl and say "wow, what happen to the miniatures." Sorry, easily amused here.

Special dark are the /best/. The less sweet the chocolate, the more chocolate it actually contains. (Well, chocolate liquer, which is, of course, the bestest part.)

And few people seem to like the SD, so when someone brings them in work, I'm always set.

I saw a show about them (Unwrapped, maybe?) where they gave the ratios of each bar to the bag.

I did find this, though:

Ok, next time we each buy a bag, I'll trade you my special dark for your krackels.

Also, with the dark it seems people either love them or hate them. My wife loves them. I hate them. I won't even eat them.

Also, does anyone remember when they use to make an extra think bar? I think Krackel was one of them. I think it was the same length and width but the height was like 5 times as big.

I'm glad to see some people here have taste. I'll never understand why so many people like their beer, wine, coffee, chocolate, *whatever* to be a pale imitation of what it should be. Special Dark, mmmm

Special Dark are my favorite - I save them for last!

When I was a kid my favorite was Mr. Goodbar, which is now my least favorite.

Now the order pretty much goes like this:

Special Dark
Regular Hershey
Krackel
"Hey, who ate all of the Hershey Miniatures?"
Mr. Goodbar

I saw that Unwrapped. I think the ratio put the regular Milk Chocolate at the top, with Special Dark the lowest of the bunch. I think the others were fairly even. The poll results thus far would suggets that Hershey should do some more research - Special Dark has a pretty good lead. That's what I voted for..

Special Dark here, followed by Krackel. You can keep the milk chocolate.

That's the exact opposite of my list.

I love dark chocolate, but not the Hershey's version. I guess I'm not a big Hershey's fan in general, since it appears I prefer it masked with peanuts or crispy rice bits.
