America's Favorite Halloween Candy State By State

Let the candy games begin.

Not all Halloween candy is created equal. Whether you're into sour gummies or dark chocolates, playing favorites is inevitable when you're trick-or-treating. In fact, which candy reigns supreme has become such a hot topic around Influenster HQ that we decided to take our question national and find out which candy is king—state by state.

We surveyed more than 40,000 Influensters to find out which Halloween candies hold a special place in ALL of our hearts. Check out our infographic below that displays America's favorite Halloween candy, state by state. Curious as to what stands out? 

+ The candy that pulled the highest total number of votes turned out to be Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It was one of only three candies (the other two were Kit Kat and Butterfinger) to be voted top treats by every single state in the U.S.

+ The candy of choice in the most number of states this year turned out to be the polarizing Halloween staple— Candy corn.

+ Candy corn also proved to be the top pick for Oregon, WyomingTennessee, Texas, and South Carolina.
