Pearson's nut goodies: This staple candy bar from St. Paul, MN consists of a substantial nougat layer, roasted peanuts, and milk chocolate. The nougat is soft and similar in texture to almond joy filling (without the coconut) - it dissolves on the tongue. Very sweet overall (28g of sugar). Peanuts and milk chocolate are what you would expect in a typical vending machine snack. The most unique element is the nougat. 2.5/5.0

Kras Tortica Jadro: This square-shaped Croatian wafer snack is filled with hazelnut and chocolate creme. Think Nutella sandwiched between chocolate-colored crispy wafers. Okay overall. 2.5/5.0

Abdallah vanilla cream caramels: Wanting to bring back a local confectionary, I walked through several terminals at MSP in Minnesota and came across this brand. I was sold by the golden Made in Minnesota seal as well as the non-chocolate options. Each piece is substantial and has a classic, buttery richness. As someone who loves caramel candies, I'm a fan. 3.5/5.0

Crown Peanut Log: This exceptionally substantial candy bar comes from Georgia, where peanut logs are apparently a tradition. Having never heard of them before, I was surprised to find a white nougat interior hidden by a generous coating of roasted peanuts. The nougat melts in your mouth as only highly fatty snacks can do. Holding the peanuts to the chewy interior is a thin caramel layer. A few bites of this highly sweetened snack is enough, as it should be given that a serving size is only half the bar. In sm...

Biscolata dublex: Turkish chocolate bar with a biscuit foundation and cream-filled milk chocolate. Excessive? There is 16g of saturated fat in a bar, 100% of your daily recommended serving. (In)conveniently, the nutrition facts are discretely covered by the wrapper's fold, and the sugar content is nowhere to be found. Flavor-wise, we have a common vending machine milk chocolate bar with a crunchy biscuit base: familiar and generally inoffensive. 2.5/5.0

Chimes peanut butter ginger chews: After sampling the surprisingly good mango ginger chews, I gave this unexpected flavor combination a try. Like most ginger candy, each is individually wrapped and dusted with a powdered coating, which prevents the candy from sticking too much to the wrapper. Small pieces of peanut are dispersed throughout the chew, and the nutty spicy combo overall works well. Three grams of sugar for a small chew seems like a lot, but in small quantities, this treat is good. 3.5/5.0
