What’s Your Favorite Halloween Candy?

Print

I was driving home from work last week and heard two guys on the radio discussing ‘favorite Halloween candy by state’.

I was intrigued, so I decided to google it. Sure enough, there was an article complete with a map depicting each state’s favorite.  I love maps so I studied it from west coast to east.

Questionable Candy Choices

I’m a little confused by some of the answers.

I mean, Toblerone? Arizona? Seriously?

And hey, West Virginia, last time I checked, Oreo’s are not a candy.  But whatever.  Maybe that’s what they give to trick or treaters in the Mountaineer State.

Also, I fully expected Wisconsin to choose Milk Duds.  Right? Nope. The nation’s dairy state chose Sour Patch Kids.  Really?

And as I scanned the states a bit more maybe the most obvious choice was from the great state of Washington, where recreational marijuana is legal.  Candy of choice – Airheads.  Need I say more?

Favorite Candy at Unified Technologies

All this candy debating led me to wonder what the number one favorite candy choice of Unified Technologies would be.  So, I decided to survey the team.  I sent out an email asking for a simple answer.  Just one answer.  I told everyone that there are no wrong answers.  Right?  Well, there were a few wrong answers.  I mean the answer ‘anything chocolate’ is

I sent out an email asking for a simple answer.  Just one answer.  I told everyone that there are no wrong answers.  Right?  Well, there were a few wrong answers.

I mean the answer ‘anything chocolate’ is a bit vague.

Hershey? Hershey with Almonds?  Pick a candy for Pete’s sake!

Then I realized I was beginning to judge my wonderful, fellow employees because of their choices.  How wrong is that?!

Is it wrong to choose Good & Plenty?  Personally, I think so but, it’s really not a wrong answer.  Some people obviously like disgusting black licorice.  And Gummi Bears? Our customer, ADL Dental Labs and the other dental offices out there are probably cringing over that one.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention our candy making customers out there.  Perfetti Van Melle, in Northern Kentucky, is the manufacturer of Mentos.  (Sorry no one chose that, although I do know that Scott Diamond loves the little chewy mints).  They also manufacture Airheads and Washington State is very grateful for that.

Candyrific is another customer of ours that manufactures and distributes candy in fun packaging such as flashlights and fans.  I’m sure you’ve seen their fun candy toys out there in stores across the country.

Our Results:

So, here are the results of my informal survey:

Seems Reese’s Cups are the preferred candy of Unified.  They do come in an orange wrapper after all.

Check out the other choices in our chart below.  But please don’t judge us.  Halloween candy is a personal choice after all.
