Apparently nothing beats chocolate and peanut butter.
There has been a lot said about Halloween candy this season – from the worst options to how to hand it out – and now to continue the coverage, Monmouth University has revealed what Americans prefer in their trick-or-treat baskets.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are preferred by the majority of Americans polled, with more than 36 percent rating the sweet-and-salty treat as their favorite. That is more than twice the amount of people who voted for any other brand of candy. Snickers came in second with 18 percent, M&M’s was in third with 11 percent and plain chocolate Hershey’s bars tied with candy corn at 6 percent. Skittles, Starburst and Tootsie Pops rounded out the bottom with 5, 4 and 2 percent respectively.
