Is This Really Michigan’s Favorite Halloween Candy?
You know what they say about opinions - everyone has got one.
Not everyone is going to like the same things when it comes to food, music, styles, and in this particular case, Halloween candy. If you think something chocolate is the most popular Halloween candy in Michigan, think again.
Candy Store has compiled a list of the most popular Halloween candy in every state, and I had to do a double-take when I saw that Michigan's favorite is, wait for it, Starburst. WTF?
It's not that I dislike Starburst, I just thought for sure it would be a Snickers, Reeces Peanut Butter Cup, or maybe even a KitKat. Starburst was not even a contender in my mind.
So how did Candy Store come to the conclusion that Michiganders love Starburst? By looking at 15 years of sales data (2007-2021), and looking in particular at the months leading up to Halloween. Candy Store sells nationwide, so they broke down their sales by state.
Coming in second as Michigan's favorite Halloween treat is Candy Corn and Butterfinger places third on the list. The Butterfinger I can understand, but CandyCorn? Come on now. You can see a breakdown of favorite Halloween candy state by state here.
Whatever your Halloween candy of choice is, keep in mind it will be half off (if not more) on Tuesday, November 1st.
