You can see me inside bars
and also inside the stars.
Some may call me a key,
The above line is a clue to thee!
My brothers are bigger than me,
I again say, the above line is a clue to thee!
I'm found inside a pack,
Go ahead and try to crack!

Who am I?

I think you are a

Nut - More specifically for most clues, a Peanut.

You can see me inside bars

Candy Bars or Pub-type bars(bowl of nuts/peanuts)

and also inside the stars.

oblate-spheriod stars (peanut stars)

Some may call me a key,

a nut on the end of a bolt, is sometimes referred to as a key.

The above line is a clue to thee!

rhyme time - (didn't see anything there)

My brothers are bigger than me,

sounds like a peanut, since a pea is very small and calling children "peanut."

I again say, the above line is a clue to thee!

rhyme time - (didn't see anything there)

I'm found inside a pack,

a pack of nuts or peanuts

Go ahead and try to crack!

a hard nut to crack - or cracking open a peanut shell to get to the nut.

    $\begingroup$ Sorry. I just signed up and was unfamiliar with the formatting of the site. I think I figured out how to do it. I will do better in the future to give complete explanations for my answers. $\endgroup$ – MacGyver88 Oct 23 at 13:29

    $\begingroup$ Thanks! I appreciate it. $\endgroup$ – MacGyver88 Oct 23 at 14:27
  • $\begingroup$ Congrats! I was so close... I thought a "key" was the tool which fits the nut and not the nut itself? $\endgroup$ – Wolff Oct 23 at 18:15

I think you are a:

Key (on the keyboard)

You can see me inside bars

Spacebar

and also inside the stars.

Asterisk, or star key (*)

Some may call me a key,
The above line is a clue to thee!

Literally, a key

My brothers are bigger than me,
I again say, the above line is a clue to thee!

Most keys (alphanumeric) are smaller than some others (usually meta keys, spacebar, enter, etc.)

I'm found inside a pack,

Many keys are packed together in a keyboard

Go ahead and try to crack!

I tried ☆

I believe you are:

A kernel.

You can see me inside bars

A muesli bar is filled with kernels.

and also inside the stars.

In the center of a star there is a kernel (core).

Some may call me a key,
The above line is a clue to thee!

The essential part of an idea can be called the kernel (keynote).

My brothers are bigger than me,
I again say, the above line is a clue to thee!

I'm unsure about this one. Maybe it just refers to the kernel being smaller than the fruit or nut it lies within. Also a kernel is used as a reference to something very small.

I'm found inside a pack,

A kernel is often found within a fruit or nut.

Go ahead and try to crack!

A nut can be cracked open to reveal the kernel within.

I think you are (Note: I didn't read the comments to other answers):

G (in music and astronomy)

You can see me inside bars

Musical notes (including G)

and also inside the stars.

G is a stellar spectral class

Some may call me a key,
The above line is a clue to thee!

Either (musical) key of G, or a G clef (the word "clef" literally means key; clefs are called keys in some languages)

My brothers are bigger than me,
I again say, the above line is a clue to thee!

The stars of the most other spectral classes (except K and M) are bigger than G-class ones.

I'm found inside a pack,
Go ahead and try to crack!

Some musical scales (e.g. C major) contain G.

I think you are:

Iron

You can see me inside bars

Iron bars

and also inside the stars.

Iron is the heaviest element produced by stars. Anything heavier is produced by supernovas.

Some may call me a key,
The above line is a clue to thee!

An iron key

My brothers are bigger than me,
I again say, the above line is a clue to thee!

Not sure about this one. May it's a reference to heavier chemical elements. Or to the Iron Brothers supplement which helps you become big at the gym.

I'm found inside a pack,

Iron pack is a nutrient supplement.

Go ahead and try to crack!

Cracking an iron nut (hardware) is a tough one :)

The first two lines make me think

plasma

because it is in

bars (as in taverns) in the form of plasma televisions, at least in name.

and it is in

stars literally as a state of matter.

Not entirely sure of the other lines yet. Is it

plasma?
