Each state’s most popular Halloween candy has been collected based on sales and put together for your viewing pleasure.
Does your favorite match the state you live in, or should you be considering packing it all up and moving?!
How The Results of Favorite Candy by State Were Determined
The website Candy Store took data that spans 12 whole years to compile this list, so it isn’t like it is simply based on sales from one or two days.
Some states threw in some surprises, but for the most part, these are the expected results – most of the candy is what you’d find in the grocery store aisle.
Except for Montana. What is wrong with that state and its candy choices?!
Candy Store also pointed out when they released the info that their ‘big surprise’ candies were saltwater taffy and Hot Tamales, which the candy giant didn’t expect to rank at all. What candy on this list of states surprises you the most?
Favorite Halloween Candy by State: The List
Arizona: Skittles – Who knew Arizona wanted to taste the rainbow? Maybe it’s their lack of rain…
Arkansas: Hot Tamales
Connecticut: Milky Way
District of Columbia: Tootsie Pops – Wait, people still eat these?
Georgia: Jolly Ranchers
Idaho: Candy Corn – Never trust a state that says their favorite candy is Candy Corn. It’s not even real candy.
Illinois: Kit Kat – There is only one right way to eat this candy. If you’re not eating it one wafer at a time, you should go to candy jail. It’s a fact.
Indiana: Hot Tamales
Iowa: Candy Corn – Okay, Iowa produces more corn than any other crop. We get this one. The whole state is brainwashed to appreciate corn in any form.
Kansas: Reese’s Cups
Kentucky: Swedish Fish
Louisiana: Lemonheads – With so much Cajun food, we would have expected something spicy. This is a weird one. Again, we didn’t realize people would choose Lemonheads over another candy.
Maine: Sour Patch Kids
Maryland: Reese’s Cups
Massachusetts: Butterfingers – Crispy, crunchy, peanut buttery… we get it.
Missouri: Milky Way
Montana: Dubble Bubble – This is… not okay, Montana. Are you alright? Is this a cry for help? There are other options out there, you know. Better options. That actually taste like something other than plastic and pink.

New Jersey: Tootsie Pops
New Mexico: Candy Corn – Nope. Don’t trust it.
