Three bowls with varieties of candies

The best Halloween candy

When I was kid, I always knew which houses had the good candy on Halloween. Those were the houses I wanted to visit first because they might run out!

What defined the “good candy” though? For me, it was the name brand chocolate. Hershey’s, Reese’s, Snicker’s…that’s the stuff I wanted. I never cared for Tootsie Rolls.

According to a new survey, I’m not alone.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the most popular . . . by far.  They got 18% of the vote, which is more than double the next runner up.

The 10 most popular are:  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, Twix, Kit Kat, M&M’s, Nerds, Butterfinger, Sour Patch Kids, Skittles, and Hershey bars.

Tootsie Rolls came in last in the survey with just 1% of the vote.  Candy corn and Smarties tied for second-worst. They each got 2%.
