    It’s going to come down to Snickers or Reese’ PB cups. They’ll be in the final four and whichever one wins, will win the final.

    I don’t think Twix will be able to win over Reese’s, which is too bad. Went with Snickers, M&M’s and Airheads.

    I’m a bit surprised that M&M’s are trailing behind; I had them going all the way! Ah well, I really enjoy Kit Kats, so if anything had to beat out M&M’s I’d rather it be something that I like.

    I’m putting my tastebuds on the cinderella team…AIRHEADS!!!!! THEY ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!!

    I call shenanigans!! Airheads always manges to get more votes in their matchups!! They should not have beat Crunch and should not be beating Reese’s Pieces. Shenanigans!

    @Unhappy no shenanigans as far as I can tell from the voting logs – Airheads has simply been the only company tweeting and posting about the competition on Facebook to help get out the vote from their fans – that’s why they’ve been getting more votes in their match-ups.

    That happened pretty frequently in Snack and Fast Food competitions the past two years as brands rallied the vote – any of the other brands in Candy Madness are free to do the same – if they post on Facebook encouraging their fans to vote it will be interesting to see if they can defeat Airheads get-out-the-vote efforts.
