America's Favorite Halloween Candy- What's Your Pick??

Post by SunshineSue » Sat Oct 12, 2019 12:04 am

Happy almost Halloween!! Monmouth University has done a study of America's favorite Halloween candy and Reese's peanut butter cups come out on top. I have to admit, I'm more a Snickers or M & M's kind of trick or treater myself over the chocolate/peanut butter combo. What's anyone else munching on and then having to replace in time for Halloween and/or stealing from the kids?? :mrgreen:

Here's the sweet data from Monmouth:

Among a list of eight top-selling types of candy, the most popular one by far is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, with 36% of Americans picking this as
their favorite. In second place is Snickers at 18%, and M&M’s round out the top three at 11%. The other five candies named in the poll receive far fewer votes as top choice, including Hershey bars (6%), candy corn (6%), Skittles (5%), Starburst (4%), and Tootsie Pops (2%).

There are some slight regional variations – e.g. Reese’s cups are somewhat more likely to be the top pick in the Midwest (41%),
Northeast (37%), and Southeast (36%) than they are in the West (32%) and Southwest/Mountain (30%)
regions – while Snickers bars are slightly more popular in the West (22%) and Southwest/Mountain.

Nerds for Colorado...ooh, that would be a good bumper sticker. Not even in my top 50. But as fate would have it, the state resembles the box they come in. Hmmm. I'll pick Almond Joy

DOTS!
