Americans will spend roughly $2.7 billion on Halloween candy this year. And an online candy retailer has crunched the numbers to figure out the most popular candy in every state.
CandyStore.com has assembled an interactive map showing the best-selling candy across our great, sugar-drenched nation. And some of the picks might surprise you. For instance, who knew that Minnesota’s most popular Halloween candy is the Tootsie Pop, overtaking last year’s top candy, Skittles? And in Texas, Starbursts have overthrown Reese’s cups as the number one candy. Those seem like poor trades on both accounts.
You can check out your state below. Does the most popular candy fit what you have in your own cupboards at home? Personally, I have to say that I identify with Alaska here. And as a person who’s allergic to peanuts, I’m not getting anywhere near places like Arizona and Oregon.
