  • $\begingroup$ Does the trivia tag apply here? I imagine that the answers will be dependent on your geography; not all candy bar brands are available in all parts of the world. $\endgroup$ May 11, 2017 at 17:41
  • $\begingroup$ In fact, the brand of candy bar that they hang out with is of no consequence and the reference to candy bars serves merely to stimulate a hint as to what kind of people these may be. $\endgroup$

Partial answer:

Each phrase clues a different hip hop artist. A line of poetry in hip hop is called a bar, and you might call a particularly sweet line a candy bar. (OP revealed in comments that candy bar was supposed to clue rapper, from wrapper).

Plain Diamonds

VANILLA ICE (due to Personman), although JUST-ICE (suggested by M Oehm) also fits.

Doobie Fair Lady

JAY Z (J + Nissan Fairlady Z—revealed by OP)

Host Mallet

MC HAMMER

Mr Mallard

DRAKE (a male bird—revealed by OP) (My original guess was BIRDMAN.)

Sprint Defense Escher

RUN-D.M.C. (RUN + D + M.C.)

Large Not Large

BIGGIE SMALLS

Binary Shackles

2 CHAINZ

Infantry Man Child

SOULJA BOY

Miss Nervous

Possibly NELLY (suggested by Duncan), from the expression nervous Nellie. This clue seems more indirect than the others, and I am not sure the function of miss.

Half Byte

50 CENT (This clue plays on the ambiguity of bit. A bit is 12.5 cents as well as a unit of data in computing, eight of which constitute a byte—confirmed by OP.)

    $\begingroup$ It seems we've been informed that the "with candy bars" clue is actually about the "wrapper" pun, not the more complex explanation given in this answer :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I refused to correct it because it sounded way cooler than my lame pun. $\endgroup$
