CHICAGO — Candy maker Mars Snackfood announced Wednesday it is bringing its Real Chocolate Relief Act to one city that America decides is most in need of sweet relief.

Through Aug. 31, Americans can log onto and voice their choice for one of nearly 350 U.S. cities they think could use a Free Chocolate Friday.

The city with the most votes is in for a sweet surprise when NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 18 M&Ms Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, "drives" smiles into town.

He’ll deliver and help hand out thousands of free, real, full-sized Mars chocolate products, including M&Ms, Snicker, Milky Way, Twix, Dove Chocolate and Three Musketeers at a live Free Chocolate Friday in September.
