Top 5 most popular Halloween candy for Trick or treaters, chocolate edition

As October 31 approaches, here are the top candies that costumed visitors receive and consume.


Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

These tasty treats top the list of the most popular candies. The chocolate cups with ridges and an interior of yummy peanut butter are tough to beat. These were started by Hershey's way back in 1928, but are still going strong today, with well over $500 million in annual sales!


M&Ms candies

The second most popular candy isn't far behind on the list. On the surface, it's only a difference of about $10 million, give or take a bit. These are those favorite little candies sporting a variety of colors and themes. The Mars candy has even spawned an entire store in NYC's Times Square and elsewhere!


Snickers bar

Another Mars entry on the top five list, these began in 1930 and have topped $450 million in sales. They now feature popular commercials, in which celebs or everyday people aren't quite feeling themselves until they have a Snickers. Not a bad way to sell a few more candy bars!
