When it comes to selecting Halloween candy (either to pass out to trick-or-treaters, or for in-home use), Ohio's preferred choice is apparently still M&M's.

This news comes according to Candy Store, a bulk candy supplier which recently crunched 12 years (2007-2018) worth of their own Halloween candy sales numbers finding the Top 3 sweets choices for each state. The company, attempting to make this study somewhat serious, also double-checked its data with other candy suppliers and makers.

Blow Pops, which was ranked No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in Ohio over the past two years, has moved to the No. 3 spot this year, beat out by Starbursts at No. 2. Classic M&M's, which have been around for 78 years, may seem like a boring choice, but they at least do melt in your mouth and not in your hand (unless your hand is super warm). That they are the top Halloween candy in Ohio for the second year shows we at least prize consistency. 

Check out an interactive map of the Top 3 Halloween candy sales per state right here. But in the meantime, here's a look at the Top 10 Halloween choices in the country:  The Most Popular Jelly Bean Flavors by CandyStore.comSource:
