We did this lesson in my pre-algebra classes and actually had the students eat the candy so they didn't have to "imagine", but were able to plot actual data. It was great! I had originally planned to use snickers, but due to the massive cost to get enough for my 70 students, I chose to do jelly beans, instead. It had the same outcome that I wanted students to see.
