…Unless you’re talking about Italian ice. But generally speaking, no, no it’s not lemon flavor. But that’s okay because when it comes to sweets, Americans don’t care for lemon anyways.
What do we want? Chocolate!
Anything else? Some peanut butter! Thank you for asking!
When do we want it? (already chewing)
For years M&M’s have not only been the most popular candy in the US, they held the world title as well. However, as of October 30, 2013 Reece’s has officially surpassed M&Ms as the nation’s top selling candy.
This year’s top 10 selling candy list is as follows:
10. Almond Joy
9. Milky Way
8. Hershey’s Cookies N’ Cream
7. Three Musketeers
5. Kit Kat
4. Hershey Bar
1. Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups
Interestingly, 3 of the top 4 candy bars have been around for over 70 years. The Hershey Bar was introduced in 1900, Reece’s in 1928 and M&Ms is the young’un of the group debuting in 1941. It just goes to show, candy has a nostalgic value to it. For many people it quite literally tastes like childhood.
