Our Favorite American Candy Ranked: Top 5 Classics

Our Favorite American Candy - StockUpMarket Canada

Are you in the candy aisle, but having trouble picking a treat? With too many American snacks to count, finding a personal favourite can be difficult.

Here’s a list of a few of our favourite and most popular American candy ranked to help you choose.


#5 on our list is Skittles. A chewy, fruit-flavoured popular American candy, with all the flavours of the rainbow. Skittles is one of the most popular fruit-flavoured candies in America, with the red skittles being the most loved. Each coloured skittle has its own distinguished taste and allows for every person eating it to have a fun time doing it.

While the original product of Skittles only has 5 flavours, Skittles released other varieties such as Brightside skittles, very berry, sour, and more.


#4 on our list is M&Ms. These multi-coloured, candy-coated chocolates are a must-have snack. Perfect for grabbing handfuls of and sorting through all the colours, M&Ms are fun for all ages. While addictive, another plus for M&Ms is that they don’t melt in your hands — only in your mouth.

This classic treat originally came packaged in cardboard tubes when they were first introduced in the 1940s. They were also the first candy to ever be eaten in space. If that doesn’t prove how amazing they are, what will?

#3 is for Hershey’s American candy bars. Simplicity at its best, Hershey’s bars are a thin, mildly sweet chocolate bar that contains 45% cacao solids. It’s the perfect light snack, and the go-to ingredient for s’mores, hot chocolate, and chocolate pastries. Its light airy texture that’s designed to melt in your mouth is what makes it so delicious.

Hershey’s comes in different varieties, such as dark, cookies ‘n creme, milk chocolate with almonds, gold, and more.


In spot #2, we have Snickers — the perfect pair of sweet and salty. Peanut butter nougat topped with a layer of roasted peanuts in caramel and covered in delicious, milk chocolate. With roughly 16 peanuts in each bar, snickers have the perfect harmony of nut, caramel, and chocolate. It’s sweet, crunchy, and soft, all at the same time.

This bar is a sure-fire way to appease your cravings. In fact, it is the number one best-selling candy bar in the world.

#1—Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

For our #1 spot, we have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. A smooth, Hershey’s milk chocolate cup filled with delicious peanut butter. This classic combination of ingredients is what landed it the win in our books. What may also be the most popular Halloween candy is also the perfect snack for any occasion as it is a great topper for many desserts, such as ice cream, cakes, and pastries.

The best part about Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is that you can buy them in different sizes — mini, thins, big cup, half-pound cup, and more. So whatever sized craving you have, Reese’s has you covered.
