Think About It: Candy Craving

In my never-ending quest to ensure that you don't take things too seriously, tonight's edition focuses on the age old question- what IS Hawaii's favorite candy bar? ‘Tis the season, of course...  Well it's not Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, though that round masterpiece combo is ranked in the top three of every state in the union! It's not Butterfinger or Kit Kat, though they're also in the national top three, so give me a break.

No, Influenster says our #1 candy treat here in the land of aloha is the 100 Grand Bar (formerly known as the $100,000 Bar until about 30 years ago). Like Hawaii's population, this bar is chock full of all kinds of variety and flavors with its chocolate, caramel, and crisped rice. The bar's slogan is "That's rich!" So maybe Hawaii residents (and certainly the website voters) favor this delectable treat because it's about as close as most residents will ever get to feeling rich. And it's the closest thing many will get to ever hold or have100,000 of anything.

Colorado picked the Milky Way, perhaps perfect now that pot is legal. California picked Lifesavers- add you own pun. Our sibling in this sugar quiz? Minnesota, as the land of 10,000 lakes also picked the 100 Grand Bar as its favorite. And congratulations to all, as the 100 Grand Bar, named after a successful TV game show, celebrates its 50th birthday this year. So please no Snickers, butterfingers. Be a jolly rancher, pass along kisses, but tell no whoppers, as you enjoy the festive times ahead with your state favorite 100 Grand… candy bar. Think about it…
