I have to start by saying that I do not agree with the survey results. One of my favorite things my mom used to put out was candy corn and peanuts.
The iconic candy has been the face of Halloween for so many years, but as it turns out, a lot of people hate the waxy candy.
CandyStore.com surveyed 40,000 of its own customers and used data from numerous lists and websites like BuzzFeed, Business Insider, the Huffington Post, and Bon Appétit.
Candy from those lists that got named as the absolute best or worst would receive 10 points, while those that were only the 10th best or worst would get 1 point.
Even though the majority of people aren’t into candy corn, it was towards the top of many lists in other states.
According to CandyStore.com’s 2017 report, which utilized 10 years of Halloween sales data, Candy Corn was the favorite Halloween Candy in six states: Alabama, Idaho, Michigan, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and South Carolina.
Some others on the bottom of the list include Bit-O-Honey, Good & Plenty, licorice, Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, Necco Wafers, wax Coke bottles, Peanut Butter Kisses, and Circus Peanuts.
Some of the best Halloween candies on the list include Hershey Bars, Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, Butterfingers, Nerds, M&Ms, Kit Kat, Twix, and Snickers.
The king of candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups which found its way at the top of seven online lists.
