Get That Sweet Tooth On! The Best (And Worst) For Halloween Candy
The dreaded sweet tooth. Mine seems to have increased over the years as I have aged. Chocolate is my bane no matter the time of year. But when Halloween rolls around for the season, there are some certain candies that just hit the spot. Or don't as the case may be. Let's head to the polls and see what the world wide web has to say first before diving into my favorites.
While there is in no way a shortage of polls, ratings and more, most of them all agree about the favorites across America and even the not so favorites. Amazingly, according to the Forbes article, Montana most enjoys gum. Double Bubble gum to be exact. If they only polled grandfathers and dentists, I see how it would make the top. However, around the studio that was never mentioned when I asked.
In the article, and with data backed up by Candystore.com, while each state may have a favorite, the overall data says that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are the solid winner when it comes to Halloween for sales. Rounding out the top 3, Skittle and M&M's are the next big ones. For favorite overall, Reese's wins it again, with M&M's coming in second.
For the worst? That list gets a little more complicated. Coming in at #3 on it is Peanut Butter Kisses followed at #2 with Circus Peanuts. As for #1? You probably already have this one figured out. Yes, candy corn. But really it falls into a serious brawl when either side tries to talk with the other about it.
What made our list at the studio? I hit up coworkers and came up with the Top 5 in the building, and they hang pretty true to the list from above.
