The Most Popular Halloween Candy In Texas: Candy Corn

Seriously? Candy corn tastes like…jeez I don’t even know because to me they are flavorless! But Texas isn’t alone, apparently Oregon, Wyoming, Tennessee and South Carolina share in the love of this “candy”.
As I take a look at this map, I’m equally puzzled at some of the other states selections as well, like the state I was born and raised in Louisiana goes for “Swedish Fish”, WHAT? I know I moved away over a decade ago, but I NEVER knew this candy EXISTED there. Also, West Virginia didn’t even bother with picking a “candy” but instead chose Oreos, “a cookie”, if you know anything about West Virginia, you’ll understand why. And one more thing, what the hell is a “Toblerone” Arizona? The candies receiving the most votes were Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (America: Still Great), Kit Kat and Butterfinger.
