What Candy Is the Best?

   Everyone has had the pleasurable sweetness of a lollipop rubbing on their tastebuds, and many wonder: which candy tastes the best? The answer is easily the incredible deliciousness contained in a 3 Musketeers bar.

   The hard chocolate shell surrounding the chewy greatness of the fluffy, chocolate nougat inside the bar makes it undeniably the best type of candy. Some candy bars have peanut butter with chocolate on the inside, others are purely chocolate, while others still have nuts on the inside. However, none of these can compare to the nougat filling contained in a 3 Musketeers bar.

   For most candies, one just sucks on them until they are done (i.e. Jolly Ranchers and lollipops). Although these candies last longer, they are only eating the candy in one sitting.  One great benefit of a 3 Musketeers bar over other candies is that you can save it for later. If one has a lollipop, it will stick to the wrapper after sucking on it for any period of time. This causes the paper to stick to the lollipop, ruining it (same for Jolly Ranchers).  If one rewraps a 3 Musketeers bar, no problem!

   Finally, it has come down to the final 2 candies: 3 Musketeers (of course) and the winner from the votes according to a poll from Today.com, Kit Kat. So, why is the former better than the latter? Apart from tasting better, 3 Musketeers are chewy rather than crunchy. People with sensitive teeth or who just got braces can eat a 3 Musketeers bar but not a Kit Kat. If one is in either situation, the 3 Musketeers will be like the friend who helps them out in a time of need, sharing its chocolatey goodness. It is not the friend that neglects one right when they need help, like a Kit Kat does.
