Monmouth University just released a poll which shows what candy is America’s favorite Halloween treat. And believe it or not, it’s NOT black licorice! No, America’s favorite Halloween candy is.....Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
Thirty six percent of Americans chose the peanut butter treat. Snickers came in second at 18%, M&M’s came in third at 11%, Hershey bars and candy corn (Candy corn? Really?) at 6%, Skittles at 5%, Starburst at 4%, and Tootsie Pops at 2%. Very interesting results, huh?
What even more interesting is that the favorite Halloween treat in New York State is Hot Tamales! This according to candystore.com which used 10 years of data to come up with the information. While I may have picked on candy corn just for fun, it’s interesting to note that the treat always ranks very high in candy sales every Halloween. Who knew?
