Candy Crush

CandyStore.com has compiled a list of the most favorite candy listed by state. For once, my state came through with M&M’s. (They are nature’s perfect food.)

We took 10 years of sales data, looking in particular at the months leading up to Halloween. We sell to all 50 states so we broke down our sales by state. We also have relationships with major candy manufacturers and distributors – all of whom contributed and helped us verify that our data is on point

On this analysis, we were able to ascertain the best sellers in every state.

The National Retail Federation estimates that shoppers will spend $2.7 billion on Halloween candy this year. Industry research has shown that, in 2015, online candy sales increased by 15 percent. People are realizing they can save time and money by skipping the store and purchasing from the comfort of their home. But will you buy the right candy?

If you can’t determine your state’s preference, the list can be found at the link. Shout out to my (hopefully) future home Arizona, whose favorite is Snickers. Mmm… Snickers.

    1. Those are probably my two favorites of all time, but I’m on a restricted diet and not allowed to eat them. At least when the wife is around……………..

  2. Toothy – They’re Monica Lewinsky’s favorite!

    Metoo – BLASPHEMY!!! (Actually, Twix are pretty awesome.)

    INPiker – If you’re going that route, at least give out Jolly Joe’s.

    Cathy – Tootsie pops are okay, but they don’t hold a candle to Butterfingers.

    William – Nicely done.

  3. Crud, CA got M & M’s. I know a lot of people like them, but I haven’t touched them for 25 years, ever since I found out that Mars put ground up nuts into the chocolate. Since I’m deathly allergic to nuts (literally), I won’t eat them. You guys can have my fair share.

    1. Back then, they put peanuts onto the list of ingredients for plain & Ms. Nowadays? No where to be seen. A spokesperson also admitted on TV that they used ground up peanuts to “enhance” the flavor. Every time I see a recipe with using this as an ingredient, people always make comments thanking the person that posted it because they’re staying away from nuts due to allergies. I use Hersheyettes, they’re a lot safer & (IMHO) taste way better.
