Top 10 Chocolates
In this article we're going to review what at
least a majority of people in the United States
view as the top 10 chocolate treats.
The famous Gallop Poll does polls on just about
everything, especially on what people like to
eat. So it should come as no surprise that the
most recent Gallop Poll done in 2005 shows that
chocolate is the number one favorite dessert among
people in the United States. But this poll went
a little bit farther than most. Not only did it
break down the favorite generic desserts but also
broke down the ten favorite chocolate based desserts.
The results showed that their was a quite a
diversity in the chocolates that people enjoyed
and the difference in numbers between 1 and 10
were not very far apart. Having said that, a top
ten list was still put together. Some of the items
on it may come as no surprise to you. Others may
be a total surprise.
10. Coming in at number ten was chocolate ice
cream. The number one brand of chocolate ice cream
was Bryers. This probably should come as no surprise
as here we get to combine two treats in one, ice
cream and chocolate. It should be noted that this
was simply plain chocolate ice cream with no toppings.
9. At the number nine position was chocolate
covered cherries. To be more specific, this was
actually chocolate covered jelled cherries and
not whole cherries. You can usually find these
in a box of chocolates purchased at a candy store.
8. The number eight chocolate treat is chocolate
milk. The top brands are Hershey, Nestlé, Bosco
and Cocoa Marsh. It should be pointed out that
it is mostly children weighing in on this one
which might explain why this choice fell so far
down the list.
7. Coming in at number seven is the famous treat
known as plain M&Ms. Kids and adults alike have
been popping these things like pills for many
years now. It should be noted that the reason
M&Ms came in so high is not so much for their
taste but for their convenience. Pop open the
bag and gulp 'em down. Doesn't get any easier
than that. They're great at movies, which by the
way is the number two snack at a movie behind
6. In the number six spot is a hot fudge sundae.
There was no particular brand mentioned. It should
be pointed out that the majority of those that
responded said that preferred the sundae with
whipped cream. It wasn't decided whether or not
the whipped cream had any large effect on the
hot fudge sundae's popularity.
5. Mid way through the list at number five we
have chocolate brownies. Again, no brands were
mentioned but the general consensus was that home
made brownies, not from a mix, were the best.
These were a favorite at picnics.
4. The number four favorite chocolate treat
was chocolate layer cake, a favorite at birthday
parties. For that matter this was a favorite dessert
for any special occasion and high on the list
3. Coming in at number three was the Nestlé's
Crunch Bar. This is probably one of the most popular
candy bars in existence next to the bar that came
in at number two.
2. Yes, at number two is the original Hershey's
chocolate bar that people have been eating for
over a century. Many thought this would be number
one on the list and were very surprised to find
it at number two.
1. So what was number one? This came as a surprise
to many people but the number one chocolate treat
was Russell Stover assorted chocolates. This is
the number one seller on Valentine's Day and the
number one favorite chocolate treat of all time.
Many people claim to be able to eat a whole box
in one sitting.
