We're about to spend $2.7 billion on Halloween candy (as a nation), according to experts. And, of course, there will be some candy that we won't give to trick-or-treaters. We'll have to eat some of that candy by ourselves, right? Unless we're talking about candy corn. Who likes that stuff, right? 

Not so fast., a bulk candy retailer, compiled data over the last 10 years to find out which types of candy are the most popular in each state, and we couldn't believe one of their findings. We are sorry to report that candy corn actually tops the list in the most states. Yes, six states consume more candy corn than any other type of candy on Halloween. We're talking about you in Alabama, Idaho, Michigan, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and South Carolina.
