​Kit Kat Voted World’s Best Chocolate Bar

Ah, the humble chocolate bar - the cornerstone of snack time, the ultimate solution for our relentless sweet teeth. The treat that you weren't allowed until you'd finished your greens, the lunchbox staple and the sugar hit to get you going through the afternoon.

While the idea of what officially counts as a chocolate bar remains a bit contentious (many are actually sold in the supermarket biscuit aisle, for example), we can all agree that there are some stone cold classics out there, which have been loved across the globe for decades.

Well, now the world has spoken, and according to the general consensus, it's apparently the Kit Kat that reigns supreme.


A survey on voting site Ranker laid out the stipulations only as 'Chocolate candy that comes in a bar shape - no cups, eggs, bits, balls, pieces or patties'.

And coming in at the coveted number one spot was Nestlé's Kit Kat, the multi-fingered, chocolate-covered wafer bar that you break with a satisfying snap down the middle.

There's a certain art to eating a Kit Kat, with some opting to bite the chocolate layer off first, leaving the wafer insides to nibble on. Others just chomp straight in without even separating the fingers - but you should probably never trust them, let's face it. They're weird.


The runner up in the online survey was the Snickers, which features nougat, peanuts and caramel all wrapped in milk chocolate - and is often seen being thrust into people's faces by the A-Team's Mr T.

That was followed up by the Twix, Milky Way and Hershey Bar in third, fourth and fifth place, with the rest of the top 10 consisting of Nestlé Crunch, Butterfinger Bar, 3 Musketeers, Toblerone and Baby Ruth.

Of course, many of those aren't as well-known in some parts of the world, but many other international staples do feature in the list, including Mars (15th), Cadbury Dairy Milk (17th), Kinder Bueno (29th), Aero (32nd), Galaxy (42nd) and Crunchie (46th).


However, none of those were popular enough to beat the Kit Kat, which is perhaps unsurprising given how many countries you can find them in.

Along with dark chocolate and 'cookies and cream' flavours, there are even some regional variants like green tea-flavoured Kit Kats found in parts of Asia. There's also rumoured to be baked potato and soy sauce versions out there in the world, though we're guessing those won't prove quite as universally popular among the Kit Kat fans.

What do you reckon? Does a Kit Kat even belong in a chocolate bar list? Is it more than just the nice bit of your meal deal?
