Snickers or Starburst? Find out the most popular candy in your state

Snickers or Starburst? Find out the most popular candy in your state”

Six US states should be ashamed of themselves, because they gave out more candy corn than any other candy. Alarmingly, the states of Michigan, New Mexico, Alabama, Rhode Island and SC are all also apparently candy corn fans.

"Our current customers were requesting a candy corn that not only tasted great but had better ingredients and were safe for those with most allergies", said Michael Sands, CEO of YumEarth.

Washington, I'm also judging you. Each of those sweets are produced by Mars, based in Virginia.

To create the interactive map, the Candy Store team examined sales data from all 50 states, revealing a wide variety of candy preferences across the country, not just by region. While people in fat states like MS and Arkansas are most often enjoying 3 Musketeers bars and Jolly Ranchers this time of year, Michiganders are gnawing on candy corn. Michigan, a place where about one in three people are obese, is really slumming it on the Halloween candy front.

In the Midwest it's all over the board, with people in Nebraska and IL making Sour Patch Kids their favorites, but Kansas and Iowa are solidly behind Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Skittles are also popular in California, coming in third on the list of favorite trick-or-treat sweets. Tootsie Pops just took over the top spot in 2017, but second place (and a previous first place champ) goes to salt water taffy. Eh. Candy corn?! That cheap, dyed, artificial caramel-tasting stuff?! Take the hit, get rid of the candy corn, and get a superior candy for the kids this year.
