Canadians have so many reasons to celebrate and to be proud. From North to South and from East to West, Canada is an excellent place on earth to live! Yes, we do have remarkable healthcare, clean air, and amazing outdoors.

Canadians are so kind and friendly, and we have so many fabulous cultures to explore. We could spend days telling you about the greatness of Canada, but did you know Canada has some of the finest and sweetest candy treats?

Here is a list of Candy Funhouse's Top 20 Canadian Chocolate Candy Bars that our Candyologists have compiled. In our sweet opinion these are the most popular chocolate bars in Canada. 

20. Big Turk

Big Turk - Top 20 Canadian Chocolate Bars

A classic Turkish delight chocolate bar coated in delicious milk chocolate. One of the most unique chocolate bars in Canada, made by Nestle Canada.

Many Canadians have had a love/hate relationship with this mysterious chocolate bar. With its red, white and blue packaging, it will often remind people of the look of Bazooka Joe bubble gum or even toothpaste!

Don't be fooled by its packing, it's a combination of turkish delight coated in a thin, light layer of Nestle Chocolate. Featured on CBC's "7 Canadian snacks you can't get in the U.S. and the backstory on why" and Danko Jones "I Love Big Turk, and I cannot lie".

Big Turk is the perfect bar for chocolate lovers with only 4 grams of fat and 60 grams of chocolate. Big Turk is the ideal alternative to an average chocolate bar.

I agree Canadian chocolate bars are the best. Only thing missing on this list is my all time favorite, Oh Henry! I thought it would make the top 20?

I used to be involved in the wholesale confectionary distribution business in Canade in the 80’s. Mars and Snickers were usually in the top 10. What happened?

You didn’t include the Aero Bar; one of my favorite, did the bubbled chocolate thing before Mirage. I would give this bar serious consideration.

When I lived in Toronto MANY years and centuries ago, you used to be able to buy two different chocolate “bars” – one dark chocolate with 8 breakaway squares with 4 different fillings and the other, milk chocolate, with six break away portions that each had a different filling… Anyone know who made them and why they are no longer? Incredibly saddening…

Your lowest rated one on this list (#20 – Big Turk)… I dunno, can’t we substitute this with something (ANYTHING!) else? My wife makes the world’s most amazing fudge – although it’s only sold at the Edmonton Weekly Farmer’s Market.

I think I was influenced to hate Turkish Delight (this is just my opinion; I’m certain that it is a staple of many a Canadian’s sugar fix) from an early age. Too many decades ago to count, me and my family were visiting an elderly relative, and she offered my brother and I Turkish Delight. We each took a bite of one, then we told her that they were “Mmm good”! As soon as she went back to conversing with our parents, we surreptitiously secreted them in napkins, and then into our pockets.

I apologize for babbling, but the next time I came across “Turkish Delight” was when I was reading “The Chronicles of Narnia”. In one of the books in the series, a young boy is enticed to betray his compatriots by being offered unlimited TURKISH DELIGHT!! I could never get over that.

As a footnote, the “Adult Swim” cartoon “Robot Chicken” did a parody of this exact scene (one I won’t describe, as I assume Candy Funhouse blogs need to be “All Ages”).
