The numbers are in. A large-scale market study (if you consider 8,370 large-scale, that is) has finally revealed what Halloween candy people most prefer.
Surprisingly, caramel corn balls did not even make it onto the list. But if you are stopping for Halloween supplies on the way home tonight, you might want to consider some selections from the top ten...
9. Peanut Butter M&M's
8. Reese's Stuffed With Pieces
7. Milky Way
6. Reese's Pieces
4. Kit Kat
2. Reese's Miniatures
1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
Hmmm...judging from the numbers, do you think Reese's might have influenced the vote?
One of my favorites; Payday, came in 47.
And the perennial Halloween candy; candy corn? Number 67.

Today's Random Fact:
Halloween is the number two holiday in terms of commercial success. It's no surprise that Christmas is number one. Over four billion dollars is spent annually during the Halloween season. The majority of that money is spent on costumes, candy, parties, and decorations.
Halloween was actually a Celtic holiday. It was originally called Samhain meaning "end of summer". In ancient Celtic Ireland, October 31st marked the official end of summer.
