Skittles are the most popular countrywide and you won't believe how many people actual vote candy corn their favorite, but what about here in Massachusetts?

We all have our favorites, but according to, 2019's most popular sweet treat for Halloween in the U.S. is Skittles. My 15-year-old will be thrilled to know this as he loves Skittles or anything sweet and sour for that matter.

The website's data notes Reese's Cups – quite possibly one of mankind's greatest creations – ranked second, with M&Ms, Snickers and Starburst rounding out the Halloween top five.

However, favorites vary from state to state. For example, Skittles were tops in Arizona, California, Delaware, and Hawaii, to name a few, while trick-or-treaters from Iowa, Idaho and Las Vegas put candy corn at the top for 2019.

You can see more at, but here's a quick look at the highlights:
