Take the chocolate bar quiz here.

The token mention of Zero didn't make the quiz any more appetizing. Those cross-sections were a gag-inducing reminder of why I gave up eating that crap in favour of real chocolate. And for that I thank you.

Interesting..... I expected to do a lot better, but only got 10 of 20. There were a couple I never heard of.

I got 16. Some of those were pretty unfair: Heath vs Skor, Butterfinger vs 5th Avenue? They're pretty much the same. I got those right, though.

I only got 14 right. Considering how many of each of those candy bars I've consumed over the past 40 years, I expected to do better!

Very american-centric.

That which they call a Three Musketeers, Brits would know as a Milky Way. That which they call a Milky Way, Brits would know as a Mars.

Even so, I got 19/20

My wife says she thinks I've been eating too much candy... ninja

Your Milky Way bars don't have caramel?

18/20 here... the 2 I didn't get are ones I've never eaten.

12/20. I was amazed at some of the ones I recognized, candy bars I've neither seen nor eaten in over 30 years.

I only got 15, but I was impressed that I got Heath vs. Skor no problem. I knew that Skor bars have a more golden colored toffee in them.

AND, once I'd seen the Butterfinger bar, I knew how wrong I was...I'd have gotten that pair if Butterfinger came up first, but I missed 5th Avenue as it did.

Wow, got 5 out of 20 and two were lucky guesses. Who could of thought chocolate would be so different across the ocean. Your Milky Way is so different to ours. In Britain we mainly have Cadbury's chocolate not Nestle. Give me a quiz on that and I will most likely get 20 out of 20. Bit of a chocoholic.

I scored 17, but there's a mistake in one of the answers. I clicked the right circle, and it gave the same name as the answer, but didn't give me credit for it.

I've always thought the Brit's "Three Musketeers" made more sense for that candy bar: it has three components -- chocolate coating, nougat and caramel.
The original American three muskateers also had three components: Chocolate coating, vanilla nougat, and STRAWBERRY nougat. It was meant to be the candy bar equivalent of Neapolitan ice cream. The strawberry disappeared rather early, and it became the mis-named candy bar we have in the US today.
