A midday pick-me-up. A study break. An after-dinner treat. No matter when you want a sweet treat, you know there's nothing like your favorite brand of candy to put a smile on your face. And if you're a chocolate lover (and who isn't?), you'll relish the unique ways in which different brands make melt-in-your-mouth chocolate even better. It could be with soft caramel spilling out the chocolaty sides, or with a crunchy cookie, or with a nougat filling to make devouring chocolate even more satisfying.
Think about the brands you like best. Some are from innovative, new companies, some have been around for decades, and some of your favorite sweet treats were developed as brand extensions. An example of a brand extension is M&M's. Originally, only milk chocolate or peanut M&M's were offered. Today the company increases sales through offering different variations on their M&M's, including dark chocolate, white chocolate, caramel, almonds, pretzels and more.
When you take this quiz, you may be surprised by how just one brand can offer so many delicious candy bars. Or you'll realize you never paid attention to the brand itself, just the name of your favorite treat! Well, there is no sugar-coating this; it may be a challenge. But it's too sweet to pass up. So grab your favorite candy bar, hard candy or gummy bears and take a bite out of this tempting quiz.
