The holidays are the time of year that everyone collectively agrees that it’s okay to give up on whatever diets, or mild constraints on somewhat diets, we’re undergoing. And that time begins with October, a month of pumpkin spice lattes, cake pretending to be bread, and Halloween candy.
Everyone has their favorites when it comes to candy. Which begs the question, what does the preferred candy say about the person. Are Sour Patch Kids fans sweet, sour, and childish? Are Snickers fans nuts? Are salt water taffy lovers better than everyone else?
If there’s a case to be made about a candy’s impact on one’s personality, someone tell us what it means that the most popular Halloween candy purchased in Texas is Starburst.
Using 15 years of data, Candy Store has discovered a number of facts about candy purchasing trends in the United States. For one, America’s favorite Halloween candy is in fact, Reese’s Cups, followed by Skittles, then M&M’s.
In Texas, however, the trend is a little different. According to their findings, Texans purchased 902, 918 pounds of Starbursts, making it the state’s apparent Halloween candy favorite. Starbursts were followed by 889,827 pounds of Reese’s Cups, and 690,987 pounds of Sour Patch Kids.
While there isn’t a graphic that points out the candy least purchased in Texas, the organization did put together another roundup of America’s least favorite candies. Coming in at number one – the most detested candy in America – is Circus Peanuts.
Unrightfully so, Candy Corn came in as the second worst Halloween in candy in the USA, followed (rightfully so) by Peanut Butter Kisses.
What are your thoughts? Do Starbursts really reign supreme in the Lonestar State? What would Houston’s number one candy be? Should we stop this outlandish campaign against Candy Corn? Let us know on our socials!
