    Snickers had to use all of its energy in that first-round match-up with Nutrageous (Which is, say it with me, the greatest candy bar ever made). Bless you, Reese's Cup!

    The king is dead. Long live the king!

    No Snickers, Nutrageous or Mr. Goodbar! This tournament has lost all credibilty. The ratings are gonna be in the toilet from here on out.

    My picks: 3 Muskateers (eventual winner); Whatchamacalit (how the hell did it make it this far?); Krackel; Twix; Cadbury; Peppermint Pattie, Charlie Brown; Kit Kat; Milky Way (finalist).

    3 Muskateers vs. MIlky Way. That'd be a helluva final.

    I haven't been in on this thread, but how did Snickers get matched up versus Reese's Cups? Or Milky Way vs. Butterfinger, yet Hershey Cookies & Mint is up against Chocolate Pay Day? WTF? Is this like the FA Cup? Is it random draw?

    Snickers, Reese's Cups, Milky Way and Butterfinger are cornerstones of American candy bardom. And where the hell is a regular Hershey bar?

    Bad seeding, dude.

    No seeding involved, Bubs. Random, blind draw.

    Very few votes so far.

    This stinks. This stupid blind draw kills me. We have Twix vs. Nestle Crunch; Reese's Cup vs. Kit Kat? And then we have crappy matchups like Mounds vs. Cadbury. I should have seeded these. I may have to call a do-over. Maybe seedings could have been based on sales figures or something. Surely I could have found those.
    MY BAD!
