Wow. I have really hit the goldmine this week when it comes to important, hard-hitting news stories to share with you. You may recall my amazing '16 Seconds of an Armadillo Dancing.'

Well, never content to rest on my laurels I submit for your entertainment and education, 'The 5 Most Influential Candy Bars of All Time!'

You may be one of those purist who say, "But, Gary. This isn't news.'

To my detractors I say, "Oh, yeah? I stole it from TIME magazine!' So there.

"Time" magazine just released a list of the 13 most influential candy bars of all time.  What makes a candy bar influential?  Here are the top five, with explanations . . .

1.  Kit Kat.  According to TIME, Kit Kat was the first candy bar to be marketed around the idea of 'sharing.' I'm dubious about that, but 'break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar certainly sticks in your head.

2.  Hershey's Milk Chocolate. I' pretty sure if you stopped someone on Mars and asked them to name a chocolate bar, their answer would be 'Hershey's.' First candy bar I ever tasted. Still love them. simple and tasty.

3.  Toblerone.  I like these. I see them in the check-out line all the time and I'm tempted to buy one. It came out in 1908 and, legend has it, was the first candy bar with a filling.

4.  Nestle Milk Chocolate.  Good, but not a Hershey bar. Now, make that a Nestle Crunch and you got me.

5.  Snickers. I don't know if it's slick marketing or if it's just the fact that Snickers is a really good candy bar. It's like Snickers is some kind of premium candy. I want a Snickers bar right now.

After thoughts:

Did you have a favorite candy bar that they don't make anymore?
