Okay -- there's a lot to digest here (ha. ha. ha.), like the fact that for some reason a whopping five states love candy corn the most, including Texas (this whole JFK thing is making a lot more sense now).
New Jersey, my home state, likes to lap up Sour Patch Kids -- which totally makes sense if you've ever met a girl from New Jersey. And Florida, "America's Phallus," is apparently all about Crunch bars. Has anyone ever bought a Crunch bar? I've always assumed they're just included by the dealer under the backseat of minivans upon initial sale.
Here are some other notable states and their candies of choice:
New Mexico: Toblerone (fancy!)
California: Lifesavers (coastal!)
Vermont: Almond Joy (ew!)
New York: Sweet-Tarts (disagree!)
West Virginia: Oreos (isn't fucking candy! get it together, West Virginia)
