Candy Bar Madness Contest

In honor of March Madness, I’m running a ZOMG, Candy Madness contest! Vote for your favorites, and once the field has been whittled down to 2, leave a comment (with your email address which will be hidden and will only be used to contact you if you win) guessing which candy bar will come out on top! Here’s the first poll.

Three names will be drawn from the pool of correct guesses to each win $20 worth of Baskin-Robbins Gift Certificates. Why Baskin-Robbins? Because they’re in the midst of their Candy Bar Madness promotion!


Baskin-Robbins has teamed with up Hershey’s to create 13 different ice cream treats (sundaes, shakes, cakes, and more) made with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Heath Bars, Kisses, and York Peppermint Patties. $20 could buy you a lot of candy bar ice cream! Leave a comment (with an email address) about which treat you’re most excited about trying for a second entry in the drawing.


Poll timeline and contest details below.

I’ve semi-randomly matched up 16 different Hershey candy bars in the first poll. This poll will close at noon EST on Monday, March 10.

The top 8 poll will be posted on Tuesday, March 11 and close at noon EST on Friday, March 14.

The final 2 faceoff poll will be posted on Saturday, March 15 and close at midnight on Easter Sunday, March 23.

The candy poll winner and the Candy Bar Madness gift certificate winners will be announced on March 25.

U.S. residents only, please. Maximum of two entries per person; one for commenting on the Baskin Robbins Candy Bar Madness products and a one for correctly guessing the candy poll champion. Good luck!

  • The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup sundae looks like the real winner among all of those new ice cream treats, although I’m really going to have to…ahem…taste test each and every one of them if I’m going to know for sure.

    Meanwhile, I think the Reese’s peanut butter cup is going to win the gold in your survey tournament. It’s a little sketchy because it’s pitted against fan-favorite KitKat in the first seed, but once it gets past the Kat, it’s smooth sailing.

  • I’m not entering – I need free ice cream like I need a hole in my head 🙂 – but I felt like commenting on candy anyway! My vote among the Baskin Robbins treats is the Heath Bar sundae. I’m sold on the fact that the Heath ice cream is not just vanilla with Heath pieces, but toffee-flavored with a caramel swirl and Heath pieces. YUM. I almost said the Reese’s Cup one, but the peanut butter sauce looks to me like it would be pouring it on a little thick, so to speak.

    I voted in the poll, too, and am ready to comment when the bracket gets narrowed down a little. 🙂

  • I’m really interested in trying a Reeses shake. That looks yummy.

    **sigh** now i might just have to go to Sonic for lunch lol

  • yvonne philpot

    Im thinking the reeses peanutbutter cups looks good, but Its hard to pick when you think about it.

  • KR, Leslie’s mom

    I’m in with Leslie — the Heath Bar Sundae looks like the clear winner … even though I don’t personally care for toffee ice cream. Lots of people do love toffee-flavored ice cream, and the combination of that with genuine Heath Bars looks to be darn right irresistible.

    I’d go to Sonic any time of day or night, if we only had one!

    And Leslie gets that “need a hole in my head” expression from my family.

    i predict: reese’s will win.

    and- i am most excited about a REESE’S SHAKE. this might change my life. and i feel like an infant who can’t inhibit her choices about other people’s preferences to be different than her preferences…. but seriously, reeses are the best candy.
