About This Quiz

Candy has both changed a lot and remained the same over the years! The sweet treats you tend to like the most will tell us your age, but we'll need your help to get there. Think about the candy from your childhood. Is it the same candy you enjoy now? No matter how you answer that question, the quiz questions will lead us directly to your year of birth! 

When you get hungry, would you prefer to grab a Snickers or would you rather load up on a handful of Pixie Stix? The way you answer, and the flavors and textures you prefer, can project micro clues into the decades you have lived through. From there, we'll take a trip down the sugary, cyber highway and gather the exact age you are at the current moment. You might think it highly impossible to determine such a thing from someone's taste in candy, but you couldn't be more wrong! 

Telling us how you satisfy your deepest sweet cravings will reveal more about you than you think. It might not reveal your maturity level, but it can reveal how many moons you have lived. Let's go to Candyland and find out if we can accurately guess!
