Chicago seems to be on a roll.

We've got a President. A perfect pitcher. And we're apparently the biggest chocoholics in the country.

In a fairly unscientific survey, Mars Snackfood company is asking people to pick which city needs "sweet relief" as part of its "Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act" promotion.

And we're number one. New York is the second city (we love that). Houston is third. Out of 350 cities. Not bad.

So if you feeled compelled to vote at RealChocolate.com, know that Mars will give the winning city 50,000 of its Milky Ways, Twix, Snickers bars and other candies on September 8th.

Oh, and every Friday until then, they're giving out 250,000 coupons for their candy bars.

Chicago chocolate lovers, how could you not click?
