The Top Halloween Candy In Every State

Candystore.com compiled its rankings based on 12 years of sales data.

Halloween night is fast approaching, which means it’s time for costumes, haunted houses and of course, candy.

In anticipation of the 31st, Candystore.com released its self-compiled rankings of the most popular Halloween candy in every state.

According to the bulk candy seller’s data, Twix is the top candy in Alaska, Colorado and Rhode Island. The most popular choice in Georgia is Jolly Ranchers, and in New York, it’s Hot Tamales. Meanwhile, California is all about Skittles. Hover over the map above to see the winners for your state and see the full list below.

Candystore.com created its rankings based on 12 years of its sales data (from 2007 to 2018) with a focus on the months leading up to Halloween. The online candy seller also collaborated with “major candy manufacturers and distributors” to help determine the most popular candy in each state (and Washington, D.C.), as well as the first and second runners up. (Certain candies are more likely to be sold in bulk and, as a result, may be overrepresented in the lists.)

In addition to the top Halloween candy state rankings, Candystore.com also released a list of the most popular Halloween candy in the U.S. overall.
