Some surprising favorites this year came in Washington and Wyoming, which both said salt water taffy. The popular winner was Skittles, claiming titles in California, Florida, South Carolina, Minnesota, Arkansas, Delaware and Hawaii. Candy corn came second, with five states claiming them as the favorite: Nevada, New Mexico Idaho, Iowa and North Dakota. Starburst and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups tied with four wins each.
CandyStore.com also released the 10 worst candies in the country, with the top spot going to the ever-polarizing candy corn. As many states love them, they have an equal number of haters. Other least favorites include Good ‘N’ Plenty, Circus Peanuts and Necco Wafers. They also said that Tootsie Rolls are an easy pick for people who don’t want to spend a lot of money handing out candy to kids, but kids usually don’t like them much. No one wants to be the lame house – but none are lamer than the ones that hand out raisins.
