I ate one in my whole life. I was 19 years old, in training in the Army and they closed down the mess hall over a holiday. I got it and a Payday bar from a vending machine. With an apple and a banana from another machine, that was my dinner.

I've always been amazed at how lax army summer camp is...

Gosh you people are strange. I just wonder who is eating all the Snickers sitting near the cash register at my grocery.
Yes I have eaten many, many Snickers. Happily. Not recently because trying to lose weight. I am not a chocolate snob, I will eat all versions of chocolate (I don't think Snickers has much actual chocolate in them).

Never will I buy the mini-size because that many baby Snickers in the house would be death to the diet.
Even at Halloween we try to buy candy kids like but we dislike a LOT. Snickers are highly prized by all.
I like the dark choc Milky Way bar too.

Probably about 2 years ago. Over the last few years, I have worked to cut out food science and soy derivatives from my diet. Snickers has both. Soy lecithin is the dangerous soy derivative ingredient in Snickers. I'm male, and soy is not good for testosterone.

Decades, I guess. Snickers was never my favorite. I favored Payday, back in the day. I haven't had one of those in a very long time either.

And haven't candy bars gotten less good? I have had a Reese's peanut butter cup (Halloween size) and noted that it did not taste as delectable as it used to.

I think our bodies know what is not good for us when we taste it. If I don't like the taste of it, then I know that's my body rejecting it. And it could be that some people have mild allergies to certain foods which is why they don't like them.

But my body has never rejected a Snickers.

News flash, kids... A whole bag of the bite size prewrapped is much more than the equivalent of a full bar.

Sometimes I'll look at a smaller bag of those bite size Reese's and plan to eat only that for an entire day. The calories are not that much more than a regular day's worth. But I never have...yet. It's still a goal though.

I don't like how the king size Snickers is in two pieces and not sold as one solid bar as it used to be.
