A tweet about some of America's most popular chocolates has recently gone viral. But, unlike many contentious debates, this fierce food fight isn't about the best of the bunch — it's about which item must disappear forever.
On Saturday, Liz Dueweke, a Seattle-based news anchor, tweeted out a photo six popular Halloween candies, including Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, a Milky Way, a Kit Kat bar, M&M's and Twix. Along with the photo she wrote, “One has to go. Forever. Which one do you choose?”
That simple question has sent Twitter into a collective meltdown.
The post has since been retweeted over 2,600 times and garnered almost 40,000 comments.
Obviously, if candy corn (one of the most notoriously divisive seasonal candies) had been included on the list, the whole matter would have been resolved pretty quickly. But all of these candies are adored by many. In fact, according to CandyStore.com, all but one of the candies featured in the photo (sorry, Milky Way!) are among America's top 10 bestselling Halloween candies in recent years.
The responses to the survey have proven that even among diehard chocolate lovers, candy preferences can be surprisingly polarizing.
For anyone keeping score, Milky Way has been getting a lot of abuse among tweeters.
Some people definitely weren't feeling the nuttier chocolates.
While some responses were just totally brutal.
Since this is not a scientific poll, we may never know which candy is truly the absolute worst among the bunch listed in the tweet. But the whole debate might still be useful for anyone planning a Halloween get-together.
The takeaway? If you want to keep the peace at a party, don't buy just one type of chocolate.
