Overall quality is probably pretty similar, but Ganong's primarily makes chocolates with centers, rather than bars, so Whitman's or Russel Stover might be a better comparison. They do make a nougat bar studded with fruit gums, and a locally popular bar called Pal o' Mine (basically chocolate fudge with peanuts).
For anyone who's interested in the Chicken Bones I'd mentioned upthread, here's an article from the CBC: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/chicken-bones-candy-ganong-st-stephen-1.4454303
I saw the chicken bones in the reduced section at Sobey’s yesterday on my way into work. I resisted!
