In second place, there was a tie between Starbursts and Kit Kats. There was a debate on which one was better. Douglas Hayes (‘18) said, “I feel a blend of crunchiness and smoothness of chocolate in my mouth that makes me feel enlightened and rejuvenated at the same time." Christopher Lemus (‘17) said, “when the juicy flavor marinates in your mouth… it makes you feel like you’re in paradise”. These descriptions were very vivid and it is very understandable why there was a tie between the two sugary snacks.
In third place came Twix. While this is believed to be the favorite candy in the state of Maryland, it was not heavily favored at Bullis, “It’s just not good enough,” said Terrell Hawkins ('17).
In fourth place was Jolly Ranchers, whose fans were very passionate and loyal to the candy. When asked about these candies, Gabby Johnson (17) said, “I don't know, [they're] good I guess”. That response basically sums up why Jolly Ranchers are in 4th.
In 5th place were blow pops, “I enjoy the challenge of getting to the gum,” said Lindsay Lewis (‘17), and when I asked an avid Twix fan, Evan Thompson (‘17) on why he thought Blow pops were ranked so low he replied, “They don't taste as good as the inciting Twix candy bar."
Last but not least, the "healthy alternative" option received 0 votes. When Mr. Moreau was asked about this, he said that it's because “people like sweets and it is a tradition to receive candy not pretzels."
Overall, Halloween is a fun time of year for all ages due to the multitude of candy that each student receives when trick or treating, and it is very interesting to see the Bullis students' favorites for 2015.
