Happy Halloween! In my opinion, there's only once choice when it comes to Halloween candy and that is Reese's Cups, though surprisingly they are not the most popular Halloween candy in any states, except Florida, Iowa, Oregon, Texas and Wyoming. How are the not the most popular candy in EVERY state?
Even more baffling is the news that Candy Corn is THE most popular candy in Alabama. We always knew Alabama was a bit backwards, but this is completely nuts...errr....corn.
Though before you and I ridicule Alabama too much, we have to acknowledge that Candy Corn ranks #3 in Pennsylvania and #2 in Delaware. Who are the Candy Corn loving people?
