Chocolate Vs. Fruity Candy

Idalia Beerman-Rodriguez, Staff Writer

Valentine’s Day has come to a close and that means putting an end to a very seasonal debate: chocolate versus non-chocolate candy. Chocolate is loved by many, whether it be in the form of hearts, drops, chips, or bars. It provides that dark, rich-tasting flavor that chocolate-fanatics know and love. Skittles, nerds, sour-patch kids, etc., provide an uber-sweet, sometimes sour taste that can be refreshing from the rich, overwhelming flavor that is chocolate. So which is better? After interviewing over 100 Feehan students, the debate can finally come to rest, not that there ever really was one. The winner, by a landslide, is chocolate. With double the amount of people preferring chocolate to non-chocolate candy, this topic can come to rest once and for all. However, Bishop Feehan junior Maeve Cronin decided to weigh in on this polarizing argument:

I think that the chocolate vs. fruity candy debate is a heated one, but I would have to say that fruity candy reigns supreme because of the variety of types of candy.

— Maeve Cronin (‘24)

Well said Maeve! Although Cronin ‘24 raises a strong argument, the results of the poll beg to differ. After some extensive research regarding this topic, I found that chocolate candy is the favorite among consumers. Buyers prefer chocolate over fruity candy with 90% choosing chocolate candy at check-out. It comes as no surprise, then, that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the number one selling candy brand in the entirety of the United States. Considering the facts, this debate can come to a finish; Chocolate candy is the most popular candy within the Feehan community and the United States as a whole.
