Halloween misfits

It's almost Halloween and the shelves are full of candy.  This, of course, is awesome.  However, in every delicious multipack of mini chocolate bars, there has to be the one that you avoid.  The one that you eat as a last resort when there are no better options left.  

Let's review, shall we?

Here's our first mix.

This is one of my favourite varieties, because I loves me some Wunderbar.  So for me, the order here is Wunderbar, then Crispy Crunch, then Caramilk.  Last place of course goes to the Mr. Big.  It's not that there's anything really wrong with Mr. Big, it's just that he's the misfit.  He's the one that you avoid until you have no other choice.

This one's easy.  The Aero is the clear loser here.  The rest of the order goes Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp then Smarties.  Stupid Aero.  It's barely even a chocolate bar.
Obviously in this case you have Snickers, Twix, Peanut M&Ms and then the dead last Plain M&Ms.  These should only be eaten in case of an emergency.

What would be interesting is if you could take the best of all these variety packs and have them duke it out.  Let's say for instance you had a package that had Snickers, Twix, Kit Kat, Wunderbar and Crispy Crunch together.  That's almost impossible to rank!  If I absolutely had to choose, I think I would go with Wunderbar, Snickers, Kit Kat, Crispy Crunch, Twix.  So maybe the crappy chocolate bars serve a purpose.  They allow us to better appreciate the really good bars.  I mean, in what universe would Twix be the final option?

What do you think?  What's your favourite Halloween variety pack?

I usually go for whatever has the Kit Kat. That's my favorite!

Reminds me of the cereal variety packs that had the mini-boxes. There was always a loser box or two among the good, sugar-infused cereals.
