Halloween is coming up on Wednesday, October 31st, 2018. What is your favorite Halloween candy?
The website CandyStore.com put together their list of America’s Top 10 Halloween Candy. If you want to be the most popular house in the neighborhood, here is the list of the candy you might want to consider handing out. (Bonus points if you hand out full size packages!)
- M & M’s
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Candy Corn
- Hot Tamales
- Tootsie Pops
- Jolly Ranchers
The website also broke down America’s favorite Halloween candy by state. According to their poling, Michigan’s favorite Halloween Candy is Candy Corn (really?). Here is what they said about it: “Candy corn is a divisive candy. It was ranked #2 in our Worst Halloween Candy survey. But people do love it. Though the trolls don’t believe me, Mighty Michigan still has a love affair with candy corn. This is the third year in a row. The favorite Christmas candy in Michigan is also reindeer corn, which is the same thing in Xmas colors. Michigan consumes over 150 thousand pounds of candy corn around Halloween. Starburst and Skittles come in a respectable second and third.”
I thought it might be fun to do our own poll to see if everyone agrees with the candy and rankings listed above. I’ve taken the Top 10 candies and also all the candies voted number 1 by all the fifty states in the U.S. and put them in the poll below. Vote for your favorite and let’s see what comes out at OUR #1 Favorite Halloween Candy!
