It’s a shocker, but apparently not everyone prefers Butterfingers in their Halloween bag. A new survey shows candy corn is America’s top treat for the spooky holiday.   

According to Influenster, a product discovery and reviews site, the classic orange, yellow and white stripped sugar bombs were voted the top candy in five states, more states than any of the 30 candies listed.

Candy corn received a total of only 1,236 votes while Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, the national winner with 4,348 votes overall, was voted top candy in only two states, according to the study. The survey polled 40,000 people across the country.

Five states chose candy corn as their favorites: Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wyoming.

But there was no overwhelming favorite that the states could agree on. (Butterfingers is beloved in two states, just in case you were wondering: Idaho and North Carolina.)
