The Most Popular Halloween Candy to Hand Out in All 50 States

Someone poured through ten years of sales data to find out which type of Halloween candy each state buys the most of. It’s really what each state hands out the most and the overall favorite is candy corn, maybe because it’s cheap.

Candy Corn took the top spot in six different states: Alabama, Indiana, Michigan, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and South Carolina. Next is Sour Patch Kids as #1 in five states: Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Nebraska, and New York.

Five different candies took the top spot in four states: Iowa’s favorite Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, M&M’s, Milky Ways, Snickers, and Tootsie Pops. Skittles and Starburst are the top choice in three states each.

A few stand-alones that are only first in one state: Almond Joys in Connecticut, Hershey’s Kisses in Nevada, Lemonheads in Louisiana, 3 Musketeers in Mississippi, Life Savers in Delaware.

Georgia buys more Swedish Fish than any other Halloween candy. Montana wins for lamest Halloween candy, the one they buy the most of is gum, specifically Double Bubble.
