Kids’ Top 10 Desired Halloween Candies of 2019
Just in time for the start of the Halloween season!
A recent survey taken shows the results of the most favored candies of 2019. So, before you run out to Walmart to stock up on all your goodies for the trick-or-treaters, you might want to take a gander at the top ten most popular candies preferred by kids.
Before we dive into the list, here's the skinny on the survey. YouGov, a popular data company, recently asked 1,000 kids their candy go-tos. Some of the top spots aren't super shocking, but turns out, trick-or-treaters have pretty diverse palates. Who would've known?
Okay, okay. I know, you want to cross Halloween candy off your shopping list sooner rather than later, so here's your cheat sheet to ensure your house is the favorite of the neighborhood this year.
Good, old fashioned chocolate. Can't argue with that. If this were a survey about summer candy, I'd be willing to bet Hershey bars would jump the list a few spots because, ya know, summer season means s'more szn.
If you're not a huge chocolate fan, chances are you reach for the fruity version of M&Ms to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Shocked that they're near the bottom of the top 10 though...
Sour Patch Kids
Whichever marketing team Sour Patch Kids hired to write their commercials, they should be thanking them, because they're hilarious. It doesn't matter if you enjoy the taste of Sour Patches or not, you've definitely enjoyed a laugh or two from their ads.
Remember this one?
The fact that Butterfingers are higher than Skittles on the list is completely mind-boggling. But, guess the kids are more chocolate lovers these days.
Nerds will always be a classic. Plus, you may even catch some college kids dressed up as a Nerds box. Every year, there's at least someone who is.
Whether you're referring to the peanut M&M's or the traditionals, they'll always be trick-or-treating staples.
They're delicious and they've got a catchy song. What's not to love?
Did you pick a side? Just kidding. Twix commercials are famous for making you choose a side, left or right, to root for. End of the day, it doesn't matter. They come in at #3 in children's hearts.... and mouths.
Another legendary campaign... Snickers capitalized on the millennial made-up adjective 'Hangry' and are still pumping out commercials promoting Snickers as the only 'Hanger' remedy. It's working since they're the second most-favorite Halloween candy.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
No surprise here. The number one most favorite Halloween candy beloved and desired by children and adults alike is a Reese's. The traditional, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for the win!
