Actininium, they were likely referring to the words themselves, not the candy.

I hadn't heard of 13 of them! Out of these, New Zealand only has Snickers, Milky Way, Take 5, Nerds, and Smarties (like M&Ms). But we have Whittakers!!!!! (the best chocolate in the world, arguably...)

In the netherlands we have: snickers (which I actually missed haha), smarties( well we used to, cant remember having seen them for over a decade) and milky ways, that is it haha. And I was surprised to see milky way because I thought people told me on another quiz 3 musketeers is the american name for milkyways.

I had heard of poprocks and butterfingers through pop culture.

Well since the quiz IS listed as "American Candy by Alternate Definition Guess these American candy brands based on a short description of their name." I guess the answers would indeed be U.S. candy brands.

What ever happen to Oh Henry!, and Whatchamacallit? I loved both of those but haven't seen them in a long time. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are clearly the best candy of all time. There used to be a Fast Break Bar that was also the bomb.

I've always been more of a fruity candy kind of guy, but I had quite the weakness for Fast Breaks. A mix between Reese Cups and Three Musketeers? Yes, please!

Pixy is the spelling used for Pixy Stix. I know pixie is used to describe the fairy, but it is not for the candy. Great and very clever quiz.
