Now you can eat a BBQ-flavored PayDay, because America

Now you can eat a BBQ-flavored PayDay, because AmericaAmericans have always loved candy bars. Now, candy bars will be loving America right back. The Hershey Company has announced that it will be rolling out special editions of their most popular candy — Kit Kat, Reese's, Hershey's Kisses, and PayDay just to name a few — nationally under the theme "Taste of America." The collection of candy has new flavors "inspired by the unique tastes of iconic, U.S. summer destinations," states the official press release. Six states will be honored with the Hershey's treatment: California, Georgia, New York, Hawaii, Texas, and Florida. And what exactly will the flavors be? SEE ALSO: These green juice gummies are the GOOP of candy Image: the hershey company Image: the hershey company Image: the hershey company Image: the hershey company California will be represented by a strawberry-flavored Kit Kat, which is supposed to transport you to the California Strawberry Festival, a relatively unknown event that apparently defines summer in California. Georgia gets a honey-roasted peanut butter Reese's, which Hershey's insists will have "a hint of floral, amber, and molasses." We guess peach doesn't mix too well with peanut butter and chocolate. New York will be captured in a cherry cheesecake version of Hershey's regular chocolate bar, while Hawaii gets coconut-almond-flavored Hershey's Kisses. Image: the hershey company Image: the hershey company Alligator-laden Florida is lucky enough to be represented by two different fruity Twizzler flavors: key lime pie and orange cream pop. And that brings us to the last state in Hershey's tour of what represents America — Texas. Image: the hershey companyThanks to Texas and the Hershey Company's ingenuity, BBQ-flavored PayDays will exist in this world. The press release says these candy bars "combine the tang of bold BBQ-seasoned peanuts surrounding a chewy caramel center for a unique, Texas-inspired flavor." To each their own, we suppose, but honestly no thank you. This is one taste of America we very much could do without. If you are interested in eating your way through America via candy, these limited-time candy bars are available now. WATCH: This machine knows how to sort your Skittles by color

John Kasich raises 'taking out' top North Korean leaders

John Kasich raises 'taking out' top North Korean leadersWith that bold assertion, Gov. John Kasich (R) of Ohio raised a controversial argument for American action aimed at neutralizing the North Korean nuclear threat. “An ability to remove a number of the top people, and have a more benign leadership there that understands what’s at risk, I think is perhaps doable,” Governor Kasich told reporters Friday at a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor. Kasich – the final competitor against Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 – has not fully closed the door to running again in 2020, one more reason that his views on policy command an audience.
