THIS MONTH IS

Candy Month -- A recent survey found that 86% of American teenagers reported eating candy each week, and 21 percent said they eat candy every day. And get this, Americans eat 11.7 pounds of chocolate each year. But chocolate does more than tickle your taste buds. The chocolate-covered candy you love to gobble reveals the real you says psychologist Jane Whitrel. See where you fit in among the chocoholics by choosing the flavor you adore.
