Sporked Awards: Best Candy We Tasted in 2023

The best candy of 2023 was easy to select. That statement might surprise you since we try such a plethora of products. Two candies, however, stood out to us this year as the absolute best and that should really say something. If, like us, you have a massive sweet tooth, buy the best candy we tried this year. It’s not just the best candy of 2023, it’s some of the best candy…ever?!

Compartés Blueberry Muffin Chocolate Bar

We were surprised when we tasted the Compartés Blueberry Muffin Chocolate Bar. It’s not just a chocolate bar flavored like a blueberry muffin, this is a blueberry muffin in chocolate form. There are actual blueberries in the bar! It’s delicious and it feels super fancy. This would be a wonderful gift for any chocolate lover in your life (including yourself).

Reese’s Caramel Big Cup

The Reese’s Caramel Big Cup is a huge win for candy lovers everywhere. We often see new candy products that seem tasty, but end up being gimmicky. That is not this peanut butter cup. This has multiple layers of chocolate, tons of salty peanut butter, and tons of gooey caramel. I hope they never discontinue these because I think this is the best version of the Reese’s peanut butter cup (yes, Including the Reese’s pumpkin).
