This Map Shows the Candy People Love in Every State


A new map reveals the favorite candy of every state in the US:

Job hunting site Zippia used Google Trends to determine every state's favorite Halloween candy which, yes, is not a perfect system, but it does give us some idea! Just a note: They have excluded gum, raisins, fruit snacks, and "other things people try and pass off as candy to unfortunate trick-or-treaters," just in case you were about to get up in arms about this.

We learned some interesting data, like the fact that Starburst is apparently the most popular candy, topping the list in six different states. Other popular picks were Twizzlers, Crunch bars, and Blow Pops. The U.S. is also split 25 states each for chocolate and non-chocolate candy. I, for one, am SO surprised by these results! Honestly, I expected a lot more love for classics like Reese's and M&M's, but as someone whose favorite candy ever is Dots, I will never pass judgement.

In Illinois, it seems the favorite is Kit Kat...I'd have to disagree.
