Seattle has a favorite Christmas Candy (and it's not candy canes)

Now that we’re just about halfway to Christmas, it’s time to bring up the only thing that matters: Christmas candy.

Christmas candy refers to red, white, green, gold, and silver treats. They can be stocking stuffers and handouts; they can even be shaped like Santa. Each year, Candy Store releases the three most popular Christmas candies in each state after surveying 32,000+ customers across all 50 states.

In previous years, candy canes took the top spot in Washington. This year, the historic Christmas candy was dethroned by the one and only: Reese’s Cup Minis. Skittles came in third place.



The chocolate cups filled with peanut butter also took top spots in Oregon, California, Arizona, North Dakota, Minnesota, Texas, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Other big winners included candy canes, peppermint bark, Hershey’s kisses, and (perhaps most shockingly) reindeer corn– the Christmassy cousin of the well-disputed candy corn.

Starbursts were notably in decline, as the candy took three fewer overall showings in the top three of any state.
