The best chocolate bars you can find only in Canada

Chocolate bars you can find only in Canada might just be some of the best in the world. What kid didn't want to collect a Mr. Big when they were trick-or-treating on Halloween? Who doesn't love a Crispy Crunch after dinner? Exactly.

This list only includes chocolate bars that are originally made in Canada, which excludes things like Smarties and Caramilk. The chocolate also has to be in bar form (sorry, Glosette raisins).

With that criteria in mind, here's an unofficial list of the best chocolate bars to come out of Canada.

Mr. Big

This beloved chocolate bar manufactured by Cadbury in Canada is stuffed with vanilla wafer, caramel, peanuts and — of course — chocolate. At eight inches long, it really is a big bar.

Coffee Crisp

Coffee and chocolate might just be the best combination in the world. Manufactured by Nestlé, this delicious bar is made of layers of vanilla wafer, milk chocolate, and a coffee foam.

Crispy Crunch

This hard chocolate with a crispy peanut butter flake dates back from the 1930s. And, as the hilarious slogan suggests, "the only thing better than your Crispy Crunch is someone else's."

Big Turk

This pink, turkish delight-filled chocolate bar manufacuted by Nestlé Canada is more controversial than Taylor Swift's new folk album. But I'm going to throw my weight behind Big Turk and say that it's pretty dang good.


This toffee, peanut-y bar makes you want to... well, the idea's in the name. The bar was actually named by a Maritime man in the early 1930s, who won a contest advertised in a local newspaper.

Laura Secord

This Québec-based chocolatier serves up some of the best chocolate around (and ice cream, for those in the know). Try the dark chocolate bar with almonds, or the milk chocolate bar with peanut centre.

Master Chocolat

Owned by famed Calgary chocolatier Bernard Callebaut, this delicious chocolate shop has some truly Canadian roots. There are plenty of bars to choose from, but the dark fruit and nut bar is a real winner.

Purdys Chocolatier

This Vancouver-based company has been making delicious chocolate bars since 1907. It's difficult to choose just one bar, but the dark chocolate bluberry-almond bar is a good place to start.

Cherry Blossom Candy

This nostalgic, cherry-filled chocolate manufactured by Hershey Canada is pretty divisive, but I'm siding with those who think it's the best thing since sliced bread. Don't fight me on this.
