Halloween means dressing up and eating lots and lots of candy! Whether you are a Payday kinda person or a Reese's lover, we all have that one piece that we call our favorite. But have you ever thought about what everyone else around you enjoys? Well, Candystore.com, a bulk candy dealer, recently gathered some data to find the most popular Halloween candy by state.
We took 10 years of sales data (2007-2016), looking in particular at the months leading up to Halloween. We sell to all 50 states – plus Canada – so we broke down our sales by state. We also have relationships with major candy manufacturers and distributors – all of whom contributed and helped us verify that our data is on point.
So what do the residents of Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. like to receive when they are out trick-or-treating?
- Hot Tamales
- Candy Corn
Fun fact: The birthplace of our nation, was also the first place in the US where peanuts were grown. Makes sense that Snickers would appeal to Virginians then.
- Milky Ways
- Reese's Cups
- Blow Pops
- Tootsie Pops
- Blow Pops
