Someone had some extra time on their hands so they poured through ten years of sales data to find out which type of Halloween candy each state buys the most of. So the headline "Most Popular Halloween Candies" is a little deceiving. It's really what each state HANDS OUT the most and the overall favorite is SKITTLES. Maybe because it's cheap.
Some interesting takeaways from the research...Georgia buys more Swedish Fish than any other Halloween candy...Alaska is the only state where Twix is #1...and Montana wins for LAMEST Halloween candy. The one they buy the most of is GUM, specifically Double Bubble. Wisconsin is the only state to claim Butterfinger as the top candy.
