Time to stock up on candy! Although we still have a few weeks to go before Halloween, CandyStore.com has recently released its annual list of the most popular Halloween sweets by state and there are some pretty significant changes compared to the 2018 data.

For example, while residents of Alabama preferred Tootsie Pops last year, the losers were knocked to third place by Hershey's Mini Bars (this year's winner) and candy grain, which this time captured second place.

A similar shift occurred in North Dakota. Although Jolly Ranchers were the sweet treats in 2018, candy corn was in first place this year, closely followed by Hot Tamales. Last year's beloved fruit snacks have sunk to third place.

CandyStore.com has collected this data by examining 12 years of sales data (2007-2018) and paying special attention to the months prior to October 31. The site projects that Halloween candy sales will total around $ 2.6 billion this year, and that 95 percent of US households will buy candy in honor of the ghostly holiday.

Nationally, Skittles is this year's most popular Halloween candy, winning first place in seven states: Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota and South Carolina. Surprisingly, Reese & # 39; s Peanut Butter Cups, thought to be widely loved, only took the no. 1 place in Kansas, Maryland, North Carolina and Texas. Interestingly enough, the treats also shared the top spot with Dubble Bubble Gum in Oklahoma.

On the other side of the spectrum, Lemonheads, Butterfinger, and Snickers were some of the sweets that were ranked in one state only as the most popular confection.

And while candy corn is usually seen as one of the most divisive of the season, it managed to conquer the top position in an impressive five states – Idaho, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico and North Dakota.
