Which Candies Have Have The Most Sugar?

Ostensibly, this chart from WaPo's Wonkblog is about ranking candy by its sugar content so you can consume the maximum amount of sugar, and it does a fine job of that. But looking at it, all I can think about is how everything north of Gummy Bears coming in at a full 70 percent sugar is so much more alarming than I… » 10/31/14 11:06am 10/31/14 11:06am

M&M's Flavors, Ranked

There's plenty to mock about the leaders of the dude-food movement—Fieri, Zimmern, the Epic Meal Timers—and their bag-tag army of regular doofs united by pork-themed t-shirts and their exaggerated disdain for small plates and Whole Foods. But we're not here to make fun of their indoor sunglasses or their spicy… » 6/25/14 2:22pm 6/25/14 2:22pm

Chart: Does Your Choice Of Candy Reveal Your Politics?

We already covered this for booze, but the research firm NMRPP has released a chart showing the political leanings (x-axis) and voter turnout (y-axis) of various major candy brands.

I Sucked on a Breast Milk Lollipop and Lived to Write About It

Back in June I covered an exciting new product hitting the novelty lollipop market: the Texas-based Lollyphile Breast Milk-Flavored Lollipop. My feelings on the matter were a blend of maximum-lolz, medium-nausea, and the smug comfort of living very, very far away from Texas. Here's what I wrote at the time: » 8/02/13 2:06pm 8/02/13 2:06pm

How To Eat Halloween Candy: A Guide And A Power Ranking For Sad Adults

That the Snickers bar is the best of all candy bars is a point so obvious and unassailable that it needn't be argued here. What's odd and paradoxical-seeming, and thus noteworthy, is that its superiority is the precise reason why the Snickers is not the best candy bar for Halloween.

Parents: Don't Put Any Goddamn Candy In The Goodie Bag

I go to a lot of children's birthday parties. These parties are virtually identical. You go to a gym, you take off your kid's shoes, you hand your kid over to the 19-year-old girl making $6 an hour and wearing a bright red or blue shirt with the name of the gym on it (PLAY ZONE! GYMTASTIC! BALLS AND SHIT!), then you… » 1/25/12 4:00pm 1/25/12 4:00pm

Marshawn Lynch's Skittles Sneakers Give Him Superpowers

Before Saturday, no one had rushed for 100 yards against the 49ers defense, and no one had run for a touchdown against the 49ers defense. Before Saturday, nobody had worn Skittles sneakers against the 49ers defense. Correlation is not necessarily causation, but this time it totally was, say scienticians. » 12/26/11 12:55pm 12/26/11 12:55pm

Marshawn Lynch Likes Skittles, Eats Skittles, Gets Free Skittles

After Beast Mode went Beast Mode on the Eagles' sieve of a d-line, he retreated to his bench to taste the rainbow. This is nothing new for Lynch, whose sweet tooth grill goes back to his Bills days. His mother still buys him a pack before every game, and he talks about Skittles in the huddle. » 12/02/11 2:35pm 12/02/11 2:35pm
