Nerds are a sour candy made by wonka.

Take 5 is a really good pretzel-caramel-chocolate bar.

Pay Day is a candy bar made out of peanuts and some other stuff.


Does that explain it to everyone?

Yes probably an American teaser but he did a nice job with it anyhow. I reallly like candy, which I can't have so I enjoyed the sweetness of your teaser. Thanks.

I too have never heard of Take 5, The rest were easy. Good teaser, but I can understand how those from other countries would be at a disadvantage.

Ok, but insular..they are all American candy products, I live in the States, and have seen this stuff...you don't get Jelly babies, curly wurlies, sherbet fountains, midget gems, walnut whips... over here, but Brits would have guessed those products easily.

Super fun teaser but should have checked it out later in the day becouse it's a little too early for a candybar. For me anyway.

Back in the '40s a radio show called Dr IQ where the audience was invited to ask a question and the doctor would answer. If he couldn't the asker was given a box of Mars bars. I was just a kid, and was thrilled that someone could be so fortunate. Payday I was familiar with but not the others.

Got them all, but the last, forgot all about the nerd candy. I also thought the actor question was fast break the new candy. Ha Ha

We do have Nerds in the UK, and Mars, but not the others. So I was guessing random things like Interval (for no.2) as I have no idea about American chocolate!

Never heard of Take Five or Nerds, but I got Nerds right as it was the only one that made sense. So I got 3 out of 4. Yaaay!

While the teaser was indeed very American based, most of the clues were such that you did not need to actually be familiar with the candy to solve the teaser.

As am aside, while _miss_glamorous's answer of "Smarties" would actually work for the clue as well, it is worth nothing that as a Canadian, her idea of Smarties is quite different than the candy by the same name in the US.
In Canada (and the UK perhaps) Smarties are candy coated chocolate pieces (similar in concept to M&Ms but thinner and disk shaped which gives them a totally different consistency and taste). Though I have never had them, what the Americans call "smarties" are similar to what would be known to a Canuck as "Rockets" and are usually only seen around Halloween.

I'm surprised there are so many commenters unfamiliar with these candies. By the way, my response for #2 was a Hollywood bar, not the Take Five. Remember it? Like a Mars bar, but with dark chocolate. Anyway, liked this one, easy and enjoyable.
