I know what you're wondering: Charleston, S.C., or Charleston, W. Va.? Neither; it's named after the dance for some reason.

Junior Mints

These are the best to get in any non-movie theater situation because they make you feel like you're at a movie theater.

Early marketing for this candy involved dropping candy bars over major US cities. Thing have really changed, haven't they?
