Halloween candy bracket winner: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Reese’s defeats Snickers in final

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups took down Snickers in the final round of Local 4′s Halloween Candy Bracket!

We are in the Candy Bracket final!

We set out to crown the best Halloween candy based on your votes, and the people have spoken! Reese’s was officially announced as the winner on Local 4 News at 4 p.m.

Here’s Jason Colthorp and Ben Bailey with the dramatic announcement:

Reese’s defeated Snickers by a final vote of 60% to 40%.

The Final:

Reese’s vs. Snickers was a battle of No. 1 seeds. Wow, what a heavy-weight matchup!

On the one hand you had the mighty Reese’s and its chocolate peanut butter perfection. Everyone grabs for that orange package, and there never seems to be enough to go around. On the other hand, you had one of the most popular candy bars ever made -- “hungry? Grab a Snickers.” Now that’s a successful ad campaign if we’ve ever seen one.

This was not an easy choice. But either way, there was guaranteed to be peanut butter and chocolate involved, and that’s what the people want, according to this entire bracket.

Here’s a look at how we got to the final round:
