Ignoring the chocolate coating of the Butterfinger, the innards are similar to the Chick-O-Stick in that you're working with crisp layers of flaky, peanuty candy. With the Chick-O-Stick, you can actually see the ribbons of peanut butter that run throughout the stick:
The Butterfinger is the more delicate of the two, with a more refined, buttery flavor. The Chick-O-Stick is denser and, especially as it ages, has a tendency to become stick-in-your-molars chewy after the first couple of chomps. But barring any major texture problems with an aged bar, the flavor is lovely: a combination of peanut and light coconut with a hint of salt to balance out the sweet.
We like the old-fashioned feel of this chocolate-less bar and are partial to peanut butter variations, so the Chick-O-Stick is a-okay in our book.
Would we eat the whole thing? Done and done.
Would we purchase again? Of course.
