Kinder Bueno?! Are you kidding me? It's like a German man and a Spanish woman said, "Let's create a candy bar and name it after our good children."

Did not do well on this quiz. I feel like that might be a good thing, although I have said in the past that one should never be proud of a lack of knowledge.

Lack of knowledge on its own is never a good thing(unless we talk psychology and stuff that can leave traumas etc I can imagine there are cases it is better not to know..). Though not necessarily a bad thing either. Knowing the lyrics of some song doesnt make you a better person>

the way you obtain the knowledge can matter though. DO you know them cause you ve eaten it all yourself reguarly, or because you have heard others about it.

Little Debbie calls them Nutty Bars. Fieldstone makes an identical product called Nutty Buddys. When I was in school they were sold as Nutty Buddys, and I always assumed they were made by Little Debbie but apparently I was incorrect.

Nov 15, 2016
Upon further review Little Debbie and Fieldstone are owned by the same parent company McKee Foods and Little Debbie also calls them Nutty Buddys as well and their web site calls them Nutty Bars but the picture has Nutty Buddy written on the box. In summation I think Nutty Buddy should be an acceptable answer.

Accept polkagris for candycane? That's what they're called in Scandinavia and probably other parts of Europe too.
+1
Level 69
Jun 18, 2019
If they are straight we call them zuurstokken ( sour sticks, but there are all kinds of flavour like cinnamon aswell) but I think we only use the english term candycane for these curved striped ones.

And not that we use the same word as in english, but we are conscious that we are saying an english word at that moment. I guess because it is not really a part of our christmas traditions.

looked it up, what we call zuurstokken you call stick candy or candy sticks.

Kinder Bueno looks nothing like that in Australia. It's never occurred to me before now though, that it is a ridiculous name - I've always know Kinder is German for 'chocolate,' but it only just hit me that Bueno of course is Spanish for 'good.'

Only one I haven't seen in Canada is a "nutty bar". I had hoped "chocolate wafer" or some other generic description would work. Based on the 15% result, it looks like many countries don't have these.

I remember that there were blue Froot Loops as a limited-time promotion exactly 25 years ago (I remember how old I was at the time). Is this an old photo, or do they have blue Froot Loops in the States?

My husband loves fig bars, especially because he knows they are something he won't have to share since I can't stand them. They've made them even nastier by adding other fruit to the filling - strawberry fig bars, raspberry fig bars - I've even seen an ad for blueberry kale fig bars. Gag!

i would ask to accept "bueno" and remove "kinder" (all by itself) as a solution. In fact, kinder is the umbrella brand owned by Ferrero and used to sell snack and candy products dedicated to a younger target. So accepting "kinder" (and not "bueno") is like asking to name a car model (e.g. Jeep Cherokee) and then accepting as an answer only the generic brand name "Jeep" and full name "Jeep Cherokee" but not the model name "Cherokee"

Appreciate the description says American, but some type-in suggestions for the Brits... We have the same snack called "fish n chips"; we call those biscuits (or cakes?) "Fig Rolls". Also would you consider "Schmores" as a type-in. We don't really have them over this side of the pond, but of course hear about them on TV, but perhaps I hear it wrong. Never heard of a nutty bar, but it looks similar to our "Time Out" bar, but they're not quite the same, ours don't have peanut butter, and after double checking the chocolate coating is smoother.

All these years later, I'm still wondering why "chocolate wafer" doesn't work for Nutty Bar. Is there something different about Nutty Bars, compared to the no name chocolate wafers that you can buy at any bulk food store or supermarket? They're still not sold in Canada, but I doubt they're different from the ones that I've had.
