Americans love chocolate. Apparently, Easter Week is one of the most popular times of the year to indulge. Nearly 71 million pounds of chocolate candy are sold in the week leading up to Easter, according to a 2009 Nielsen report. Second only to Halloween, more than 20 million more pounds of chocolate are sold during Easter than Valentine’s Day.

Two companies dominate the list: Mars Inc. and the Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY). The two produce every brand among the top 10 most popular chocolate candies. With each producing five of the top 10 brands, the chocolate giants are in fierce competition.
These are America’s favorite chocolate brands.
