Before you start buying candy, check out this list that features each state’s favorite Halloween candy.

Skittles, the safe bet

Skittles always seems to be the top choice for Halloween candy. There is something that everyone just seems to like about this candy. The hard crunchy shell and the sweet fruit flavor make this candy quite addicting. Sure, Skittles comes in a variety of flavors now. The spicy and sweet and sour have found a place in the candy aisle. Still, traditional, regular Skittles will make many trick or treaters happy on Halloween.

M&Ms, still a popular choice

A close second to Skittles, M&Ms are the second most popular choice for Halloween candy purchases. Again, it appears to be the plain, chocolate M&Ms variety. Sorry peanut fans or those new, crazy flavor combinations. The classic flavor could be tops because it is sold in convenient snack sized packages, too.

Candy Corn really like candy corn?

For some reason, candy corn still tops several states most popular list. Candy corn is quite a divisive candy. Some people can’t get enough of the sugary, tri-colored candy. Other people avoid it completely.
