The results are in, and though the Peeps made a good run in the survey's final hours, it wasn't enough. Though the marshmallow bird-shaped treat is often touted as everybody's favorite Easter candy, our survey shows that less than half of us like them.

Here, the first 50 responses from our Annual Candy Survey. If you haven't taken the survey yet, it's still up on our site, here. Have fun!

And keep reading to the end to find out the winners of $10 gift cards to Bucs & Bulls Heaven in Tampa!
