(AMP RADIO) – Halloween is right around the corner, which means it’s almost candy coma time. Yeah, that’s right, we have no problem eating sugar until we pass out. What can we say? But what kind of candy is most popular in each state? What gets consumed the most on the west coast vs the east coast? It’s the ultimate battle and the results are in.

California’s preferred candy is Life Savers, which seems like a pretty solid choice if you ask us.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups won the national poll with over 4,000 votes, which makes total sense because who doesn’t love them a delicious mix of chocolate and peanut butter?

Five states picked candy corn, which seems odd when the word on the street is that no one wants the pure sugar triangles in their plastic pumpkin candy holders. Yeah, that’s right! Candy corn is gross and you know it.

That was not the only frightening selection; West Virginia had picked Oreos! When did a cookie become a candy? We must respect the differences here, people.

Check out the map below to see the most popular candy in all 50 states!

    It’s California! We’re all about healthy stuff, right??? My husband actually bought little pretzel bags, but I think that was a decoy! If you dig under those you get to the candy corn and Kit Kat bars!!! Of course, the teenagers that come to the door with no costume get a bar of soap. No joke! And surprisingly we usually get a good response. They think it is hysterical!
