When I say I'm interested in local candy, people keep trying to give me Necco wafers. I know they're from around here, but you can actually get those anywhere for some reason, and, more importantly, they're terrible.

Zagnut bar
Hershey Co., Hershey, PA

Hershey is distributed all over, of course, but this one isn't found in the West for the most part. I've heard of it a few times in books, so I was interested already.

Okay, I admit that on opening this I was completely expecting chocolate. Nothing about the outside of the package says anything about chocolate, but it's a candy bar! They have chocolate! Instead there's a malty-tasting, slightly crumbly coconut coating over... what is this stuff? It's like a mildly coffee-flavored version of the inside of a Butterfinger, only in plates instead of thinner layers... with salty peanut butter in between. This is all so confusing.

Confusingly delicious. Yum. Gonna buy this again sometime.

Clark bar
New England Confectionery Co., Revere, MA

This is also a Butterfinger, but a weird Butterfinger. Chocolate coating, peanutty crunchy sugar interior, more like one hard crunchy layer than multiple layers at all. This is too close to one of my favorite candy bars and as a result just tastes off. I'd rather have the usual, thanks.
