Ask anyone what the most popular Halloween candy is, and chances are, kids and adults alike will be arguing over their favorites. People dearly love Halloween because it’s a holiday devoted to candy, sweet treats, and things that go bump in the night. Anything less than a Halloween bag stuffed to the brim with Candy Corn, Snickers bars, and Tootsie Rolls is positively ghoulish.
Nearly 600 million pounds of Halloween candy is sold each year. Everyone has their favorite type of candy, and after a night of trick or treating, sugar-hyper siblings and school friends will often spread out their Halloween horde, looking to trade one snack-sized candy for another.
Halloween is the largest confectionery holiday. While Snickers, M&Ms, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are some of the most popular types of Halloween candy year after year, none of them hold a Jack-o-Lantern candle the popularity of Candy Corn. What makes Candy Corn so popular? It’s a once-a-year, limited time goodie – that’s what! It’s the same reason Shamrock Shakes are so popular at McDonald’s around St. Patrick’s Day. It’s said that the Wunderlee Candy Company produces roughly 35 million pounds of Candy Corn for Halloween.
