The Map Of Favorite Halloween Candy By State Is A Downright Travesty To The U.S. of A.


Influenster- We all know, not all Halloween candy is created equal. Whether you’re into sour gummies or dark chocolates, everyone knows that playing favorites is inevitable when you’re trick or treating. And let’s be real – no one is hoping for a ‘trick’ when they go door to door in their costumes.

So, we surveyed over 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 for 2015 state by state. Curious as to what stands out? We found it interesting that…

+ The candy the 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 andButterfinger) to be voted 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 proved to be the top pick for Oregon, Wyoming, Tennessee, Texas, and South Carolina.


Being a rather large man, I obviously had some very strong opinions on this map that I will list out to keep things organized.

1. First and foremost, GO FUCK YOURSELF Oregon, Wyoming, Tennessee, Texas, and South Carolina.  Candy corn is your FAVORITE Halloween candy?  That is like saying Peeps are your favorite Easter candy.  It’s blasphemy to even give out candy corn on Halloween.  If you give me candy corn, I am then giving your house at least three eggs and a shitload of toilet paper to your trees (no pun intended).

2. We can all agree that the Reese’s Peanut Butter cup is the king of candies, right?  I don’t have to go into a long diatribe on how all other candy is playing for second.  Good job by Connecticut and Rhode Island paying homage to the king.

3. I love New York with all my heart, but having Sweet Tarts as its candy is a downright embarrassment.  If you are going to go with a fruit candy, it has to be Starburst, Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Kids, or Sour Patch Watermelons.  Skittles was an acceptable answer back in the day, but the green apple flavor has ended those days.  It just overwhelms all the other flavors now.

4. Speaking of Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids, I am pretty pissed I missed growing up during a time when they were given out on Halloween.  Twitter, Red Zone Channel, and those candies on Halloween.  Kids are so spoiled these days.

5. Nice to see people from Arizona do their Halloween candy shopping at the airport.  Because that’s the only place you should ever see/buy a Toblerone bar.

6. West Virginia giving out Oreos is such a West Virginia move.  In my mind, the entire state is filled with people from The Hills Have Eyes.  So giving out cookies on Halloween makes perfect sense.

7. Life Savers, California?  Be more soft.  You can’t.

8. I love Tootsie Rolls. But Jesus Christ, New Hampshire.  Your state’s slogan is badass af with “Live Free Or Die”.  Show some backbone for me on October 31st.

9. Pixy Sticks in Georgia was an eye-opener.  I didn’t know they even sold Pixy Sticks anymore.  If Florida’s candy was Pixy Sticks, we would be getting A LOT of blogs about people getting rushed to the hospital with blue noses after snorting Pixy Sticks.

10. Shout out to Hawaii for repping 100 Grand.  The most underrated candy in the game.  Just like a Twix, the double bar makes you feel like you are getting two for the price of one, even if the bars are tiny.  Living in paradise while chowing down on 100 Grands is what life is all about.
