There's more CANDY DIVERSITY in this country than we ever realized.

A new study, conducted by Bid On Equipment, analyzed Google searches to figure out the most popular Halloween candy in every state, and the results are all over the place.

In Iowa, as expected the favorite Halloween candy is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Which is rightfully so, because they are the best. But Illinois is what surprised me is that Jolly Ranchers took the top spot. Come on, Illinois, you're better than that.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups won the most states, with 12.

Regular M&M's won eight states, although Pretzel M&M's won two and Peanut Butter M&M's won one, so that's 11 states going for some form of M&M's.

Milk Duds had a surprisingly strong showing, winning five states, which is way more than the zero states you would've expected.

Snickers won five states as well.
