Halloween candy map reveals which state prefers what

Is your state a “gimme a Break” or a “melts in your mouth, not in your hand” kind of state? Or maybe “there’s no wrong way to eat a Reese’s” is more accurate?

A map has been released showing each state’s favorite Halloween candy – and it seems that chocolate is the runaway favorite across the nation, especially when you add peanut butter.

Chocolate was also a clear winner as only ten states preferred candies that were not chocolate bars, with Hot Tamales being the most popular in three states. AirHeads, Nerds, Red Hots, SweetTarts, Swedish Fish, Jolly Rancher and Gummy Worms each took one state.
