This info has been making the rounds — including on our Twitter — and you may well have seen it, but I think it bears further discussion. Influenster polled Americans about our favorite Halloween candies, and the results were VERY INTERESTING. I was relieved and gratified to see that my beloved Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup was the candy that got the most votes nationwide, per their article, but also very intrigued to see that California’s favorite candy was Lifesavers, because I cannot remember ever getting Lifesavers as a young Trick or Treater. On the other hand, I LOVE Lifesavers and now I want some, so that stat seems emotionally accurate.
You can see each state’s favorite candy on their handy (and very pretty) infographic here:
What is your favorite Halloween candy? Are you enraged by the results of this poll as it relates to your state? Who knew Hawaii was that into 100 Grand? As one of you pointed out on Twitter, Arizona must be doing very well financially if it’s handing out freaking Toblerone! Are that many of you REALLY eating candy corn?!? How — as someone else pointed out on Twitter — does one even give out candy corn to Trick or Treaters? IT’S A LOOSE CANDY. Do you just pour it over little children’s heads? EXPLAIN YOURSELVES.
