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 and Butterfinger) 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, WyomingTennessee, Texas, and South Carolina.

Does your candy obsession align with others in your state? Could you guess which candy is your state’s favorite without looking?
