They’ll be in the final four and whichever one wins, will win the final. Reply Smile April 5th, 2012 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. Reply James April 8th, 2012 twix is so much better then reese’s Reply Candyman April 9th, 2012 I’m putting my tastebuds on the cinderella team…AIRHEADS!!!!! THEY ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!! Reply Unhappy April 9th, 2012 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! Reply Eick April 9th, 2012 @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. Reply Cynthia April 10th, 2012 Somehow I missed this vote completely. Reply rema October 16th, 2012 R- i like twix and snickers better than these hoes E- twix and M&Ms should be in the final because you dont feel obese after eating either one of them.
