In the end the most popular snack in America was Sour Patch Kids which were the favorite in 7 states in our great nation. Pringles, Skittles and Starburst all had an exceptional showing. But what are our neighbors snacking on? What were CT's favorite snacks? The answer is weird, it was:

  • Granola bar
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Nerds

What I thought I would learn and what I actually learned are two very different things. I assumed snacks meant chips, cookies and candy but we're stretching the definition of a with granola bars. Those are too healthy to be on the list and should've never been considered. I know they're not actually healthy but compared to the rest of the list, it's night and day.

AND...who eats Nerds? Is this 1992? I literally thought they went underground. I thought they went black market only, I thought they were produced in a Peruvian cave but apparently they still sell them. I have not seen Nerds since Clinton was in office. The last time I ate a Nerd Michael Jackson was making records. What are we doing?

Best actual snacks in America:

  • Trader Joe's licorice
  • Twizzlers - all kinds but especially the "nibs"
  • Lay's Sour Cream & Onion chips
  • Lay's Sour Cream & Cheddar Cheese chips
  • Dispy Doodles
  • Starburst
  • Haribo twin snakes
  • Sour Punch candies - All kinds
  • Snickers
  • Twix
  • Linden's Butter Crunch cookies
  • Little Debbie's entire product array needs to stick to slot machines and I'll handle the snacking going forward.
