As of 2015, the three most popular candy bars are Hershey's, Snickers and Kit Kat, according to Bloomberg. Other top sellers are Twix, Dove, Three Musketeers and Milky Way. These chocolate bars are among the 25 most popular candies in America.
The Hershey's bar is the oldest of the top candies. Milton S. Hershey originally opened a factory to make chocolate for coating caramels, but in 1900, he started making his now famous chocolate bars and selling them for five cents each. More than 1 million of the bars were included in U.S. soldiers' rations during World War II. Although Hershey's is the most popular candy bar, it is third most popular among all candies. As of 2015, M&Ms and Reeses peanut butter cups are the two most popular candies in America.
