Is it something we would buy often?
Was he happy to give it?
Is the stranger some type of authority and 'it' is a form of tax?

Would he land in some for of trouble if he didn't give it?
Is the type of food relevant?
Does the stranger eat the food? Or just take it away from the man? Does he then give it to someone else?
Are the occupations of either the man or stranger relevant?
Was the food taken away because the man was not allowed to have food with him? Something might be wrong with the food? (eg.poisoned?)

By taking it away was the stranger helping himself? Helping the man? Doing his job?
Was the man not supposed to be eating junk food? Not have junk food at that place? Or where he was going?

Everyone had to give their food to the stranger? Because he said they must? It was some type of law?

O.k so its partly chocolate. Is it made in a bakery or a factory?
Chocolate ice cream? Choc chip cookies? Chocolate doughnuts? Which is closest?
The strangers reason is obviously very important.Was it a reasonable reason? A strange reason?
Did the man get get anything in return for giving to the stranger?
So this man buys his food and walks out of the store then the stranger comes up to him and tells him to give him his chocolate something and he unhappily gives it to him without arguing? Is the basic idea correct?

Is it something coated in chocolate? If so: peanuts? other nuts? raisins? other fruit? pretzels? other baked goods?

Is a specific brand name relevant?

Could this really happen? Or are we looking for a punch line to a joke, or similar?

giving
Were they making a commercial?

In hindsight, would the man think he made the right decision about giving the food?

Is the reason he didn't want to give the food:
he wanted it for himself?
he wanted to give it to someone else than the stranger?
because he paid for it?

Would he go back to buy a new one?

stranger
Was the stranger an employee of the store?

Did the food have to be scanned again?

Was it considered normal behavior for the stranger to ask for the food?

Did the stranger need the food?

Could the stranger have bought the food himself?

Would an assertive man have given the food?

food
Is the food Angel Kisses?

Was the food expensive?

Does the food contain:
foamy stuff
nuts
caramel
air pockets

Does the chocolate coating contain anything else than chocolate (I mean besides preservatives etc.)?

The size of the food:
pie size
bigger than candy bar but smaller than a pie
candy bar size
smaller than candy bar size

Is the exact nature of the food relevant?

giving

Is the reason he didn't want to give the food:
he wanted it for himself? this
he wanted to give it to someone else than the stranger? no
because he paid for it? this too

Would he go back to buy a new one? Interesting question. Probably (Keeping in mind that this is a joke)

stranger
Was the stranger an employee of the store? most likely not

Did the food have to be scanned again? no

Was it considered normal behavior for the stranger to ask for the food? Good question. For this stranger and this food, yes.

Did the stranger need the food? Does anyone really "need" candy?

Could the stranger have bought the food himself? yes

Would an assertive man have given the food? he might have been a bit more reluctant

food
Is the food Angel Kisses? never heard of these.

Was the food expensive? no

Does the food contain:
foamy stuff
nuts
caramel
air pockets none of the above

Does the chocolate coating contain anything else than chocolate (I mean besides preservatives etc.)? no(?)

The size of the food:
pie size
bigger than candy bar but smaller than a pie
candy bar size this
smaller than candy bar size

Is the exact nature of the food relevant? if by "nature," you mean "what it was," then yes.

Is it American candy? I started wondering about this after I posted the puzzle. I'm pretty sure that the company that makes it is international, but I don't really know if this particular candy is sold in the UK. Which admittedly makes it less fun for you, and I apologize, although there are probably a few other candy brands that could work.

Does the name of the candy refer to or resemble:
share? give? donate? request? ask? take? having enough to go around? pass out? distribute? any words referring to a person?

Is it chocolate covered: peanut butter? creme? cake? fruit? veggies? cereal? granola? nougat? pretzels? nuts? candy (for example, chocolate covered licorice or something)? caramel? butterscotch? mint?

Is it actually a candy bar? Is it served in small pieces (like m&ms or good&plentys) or as a larger chunk (like a snickers bar or granola bar)

OH WAIT! IS it Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? I've always heard it pronounced "Reesies" and never really paid attention to how it's spelled. I looked, since neither "Reeses" or "Reesies" looked right to me, and lo and behold, it's "Reese's." Is the stranger's name Reese, by any chance?

I don't know if you know Mitch Hedberg, but one of my favorite bits of his is about Reese's. "I get the Reese's candy bar, If you read it, there's an apostrophe. The candy bar is his. I didn't know that. Next time your eating a Reese's and some guy named Reese comes up to you and says let me have that. You better give it to him. I'm sorry Reese, I didn't think I would ever run into you. You're a f***ing bully, man! At least let me have a piece! Great job cracking it, Noel, and thanks to everyone who participated.
