The Regional Championships are complete. Now we have the Fun Four set in the TravelCenters of America Candy Craziness bracket! It’s not the Fun Four predicted but all of these candies have earned their spots. As a reminder, each week we will calculate total units sold of the standard-sized candies Monday through Sunday. Be sure to stop into one of our locations and help your favorites make it to the Finals!
Snickers continued its winning ways in the Chocolate Region by easily defeating Peanut M&Ms. Snickers will face the winner of the Gum & Mint Region. Aided by a popular buy one get one free promotion for most of March, will Snickers be able to continue its dominance in April?
In the Gum & Mint Region, mint won outright. Doublemint Gum knocked out the only non-mint contender in the region, Mentos Fruit. They will be heavy underdogs as they face the most consistent candy of the bracket so far, Snickers. Can they do what no other chocolate did and pull the upset?
The Chewy Region finals ironically saw two suckers. It was Tootsie Roll Pops that outlasted Original Gourmet Lollipops to advance to the Fun Four. Both were underdogs heading into the bracket that have now flourished into bonafide contenders. On the right side of the bracket they will face the Gummy Region Champion. Can they continue this Cinderella run?
Lastly, in the closest Regional matchup, Haribo Goldbears squeaked by Welch’s Fruit Snacks to advance to the Fun Four. Can the Goldbears stack up against the Tootsie Roll Pops or will it be, ah-1, ah-2, ah-3, gone!?!
As a reminder, at the end of the bracket look for a coupon of the winning candy on the UltraOne Kiosk April 22 through April 26. Who do you think is going to win? Follow along on our Facebook and Twitter pages, updates on our blog, and at site on our digital TV boards.
