Halloween is coming up and people are rushing off to the store to purchase candy for the trick-or-treaters that will appear at the end of this month.

Now, I have never been a big Halloween person but some people go all out and I appreciate their efforts, especially since I have children now.

One of my favorite things about Halloween has always been the candy aspect of Halloween. I don't eat a lot of sweets so this has always been a treat for me. We all have our favorite candy but when it comes to buying candy for Halloween we don't always buy what we like. So when I came across this interactive map of top Halloween candy by state it had me intrigued.
