The Most Popular Halloween Candy in Each State for 2016

Kirstin Fawcett

There are some debates you just can’t win: What's the most iconic Star Wars film? Is Pepsi better than Coke? And when autumn finally rolls around, which Halloween candy is the best?

These arguments are likely a lost cause, but social brand review website Influenster decided to add to the candy conversation by identifying the most popular sweet in each state. They surveyed the preferences of over 40,000 community members, broke down the results by region, and made a map to display their findings. See which treats made the final cut below.

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. Thanks to Influenster for this one.
