In this round, the only ones that I think are going to be a little close/tough would be: Rolo vs Air Heads Crunch vs Sour Patch Kids actually, add M&Ms and Hershey’s Kisses to that as well. I pegged M’s to go all the way (or at least, very far in) but Kisses are popular. I don’t think quite enough to win in this round, but who knows? All four are (in my opinion) nice candies. It’ll be interesting to see if more people prefer chocolate or the non-chocolate candy better. * round 3 will be neat. Since I’m betting both Reese’s PB Cups and PB M&Ms to advance, they’ll face each other. Reply dutch March 26th, 2012 finally, the tyranny of plain chocolate is over. never again will we make the mistake of overrating a hershey’s bar.
