It's Official... Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are America's Most-Liked Halloween Candy
Picture yourself in the candy aisle at a grocery store. You're deciding which candy bag would be best to purchase for your fellow trick-or-treaters, and let's be real, for yourself too. What do you end up grabbing? We're pretty sure we can guess.
Peanut butter and chocolate... can you think of a better combo? Apparently not, because a new study from Monmouth University shows that America's favorite choice of candy during Halloween is Reese's Peanut Butter.
Surveying over 1,100 adults, results show that 36% of people favor the peanut butter and chocolate cover, while 18% of them chose Snickers and 11% prefer M&M's. Other candies that people voted for in the poll were Skittles, Hershey bars, Tootsie Pops, and Starburst. Something that isn't shocking- candy corn made the cut. The iconic Halloween candy remains as one of the top-selling candies in the United States during Halloween.
We have spoken. Our love for Reese's is real. The savory chocolate was created back in 1928 by dairy farmer H.B. Reese, and we haven't gotten enough of it since. America loves the peanut butter so much that the creamy sensation can now be purchased in a jar. Talk about a new addiction!
