America’s Sweet Tooth is well documented…as is our collective growing waistline.  Still, we love our chocolate and CNBC  has a list of the top ten most popular chocolate candies. The list starts with my favorite at number ten…the almond Joy!

 10. Almond Joy

 9. Milky Way

 8. Hershey’s Cookies N’ Creme

 7. 3 Musketeers

 6. Twix

 5. Kit Kat

4. Hershey’s

3. Snickers

2. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

 1. M&Ms

The best-selling chocolate treat on the list has been around since 1941 and was designed by Forrest Mars Sr. so consumers could enjoy their chocolate without having it melt in their hands. M&Ms, which was named after its inventors Forrest Mars and R. Bruce Murrie, were served to GIs serving in World War II and went on its first space mission in 1982. M&Ms are red, yellow, blue, orange and green, but it’s red that gets top billing — it has been the official “spokescandy” since 1952. There are now eight permanent varieties of M&Ms candies, as well as seasonal offerings.
