‘Tis the season to stuff your face.

We were pretty surprised about the top Halloween candies CandyStore.com expected would dominate each state this year. Seriously, Louisiana? Lemon Heads?

We’re equally confounded by which candies states choose to snack on during the Christmas season. For example, reindeer corn secured the top spot in five different states. Not only had we never heard of reindeer corn until today, but it looks like candy corn’s gross cousin.

The rest of the list is pretty unremarkable: They expect Reese’s, Hershey Kisses, and Candy Canes will be among the most popular Christmas candies in the country.

Pez, which was shockingly popular last year, lost a lot of steam in 2018—the chalky snacks only showed up in the top three in five states.
