National Candy Day

Happy National Candy Day!! In honor of national candy day, we took a poll in our class of 25 students to see what everyone's favorite type of chocolate and general candy is. Here is the wide variety of answers:


  • Kit Kat: 6/25
  • Hershey's: 3/25
  • Reece's: 8/25
  • Twix: 8/25

Reece's and Twix tied for the favorite type of chocolate. Twix was first made in the United Kingdom in 1967.It was realesed in the United States until 1979. It's a staple candy on Halloween and the caramel filling gives it the perfect taste! Reece's was first made in 1928 by the Hershey's company. Now there is so many different versions you can get from king size to bite size! Reece's are perfect for a peanut buttery and chocolatey taste!!

General candy:

  • Skittles: 5/25
  • M&M: 3/25
  • Twizzlers: 2/25
  • Swedish Fish: 4/25
  • Starbursts: 3/25
  • Sour Patch Kids 8/25

Sour patch Kids won for favorite type of general candy. It was originally created by Frank Galatolie in the U.S. in 1970. It was first named Sour Group Kids. They are great for a sweet yet tangy taste!!

Even though Halloween is over, you most likey still have a lot of candy sitting around. Since today is national candy day, treat yourself to your favorite candy!
