Listen To The Story

America — what is the matter with you?

A survey out today from Influenster asked people across the country about their favorite Halloween candies. The candy of choice in the most number of states — and picture me shaking my head here — is candy corn. 

I'm reassured only in the knowledge that the treat getting highest number of total votes was Reese's peanut butter cups — a personal favorite of mine.

Check out the state by state breakdown in the map below, and don't forget Marketplace Weekend wants to hear about your Halloween spending stories!
