Kids these days don’t realize how good they have it when it comes to Halloween Trick or Treating!

When I was a kid, you were lucky if you got a Snickers bar or some other recognizable form of candy.

Back then, it wasn’t rare to empty your bag upon returning home after a long night of telling lame jokes to your neighbors, to find homemade cookies, donuts and the occasional nickel or penny spill out over the kitchen table.

According to a new survey from Influenster, we’ve stepped up our game in a big way since then.

This is important because as any parent will tell you, we buy the Halloween candy to hand out that  like! (we all have our secret stash hidden away  in case of an “emergency”)

You can bet I’m handing out plenty of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats this year.

The survey found the most popular candy in each state. Candy Corn (seriously?) came in first in five states, but Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups got the most votes overall.

As for Missouri, we’re partial to Hershey’s Kisses while Illinois loves the Snickers bar.
