We've got the results, and they will probably surprise you!


Candystore.com is a national candy retailer that has been compiling sales data for the entire country!  They have gone through their data for the past TEN years (2007-2016) and know what candy each state is eating the most of!  I found their results to be largely surprising, and we've got them right here!


Here in Indiana, I was very surprised by which candy we're eating the most, and then less surprised about the second and third place sugary snacks.  Supposedly, we are actually eating HOT TAMALES more than any other candy.  Now, I'm not an Indiana guy by birth, although I do feel like Indiana likes Hot Tamales better than my home state of Pennsylvania, I'm extremely surprised they were number one!


Runner up for Indiana as reported by Candystore.com is Starburst followed by Snickers.  Both of those seem a bit more logical to me.


Our friends just over the bridge in Kentucky?  Candystore.com reports that they love their Tootsie Pops in the Bluegrass State, followed by THREE MUSKETEERS!!! (Seriously, who loves Three Musketeers?!)  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups brings up the rear in Kentucky, and I can get with that!


If you're reading this in Illinois, you may or may not be surprised to find out that you guys apparently eat Sour Patch Kids more than anything else.  After that, Illinoise reportedly loves their Kit Kat and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups the most.  Those seem to make the most sense to me, personally.
