Now that it’s officially October it’s time to start getting excited for Halloween, which means supermarkets will have aisles and aisles of candy ready for you to buy for trick or treating. While everyone has their own personal likes and dislikes when it comes to Halloween treats, there are definitely some that are more popular than other, and now a new report reveals which ones are the most popular, and whether that popularity differs from state to state.
It’s probably not at all surprising, but chocolate is the overall favorite. According to Peapod sales, the most popular Halloween candy is the Snack Size Kit Kat Candy Bars for a third year in a row, with four of the Top Five candies all containing chocolate.
