What’s the top selling candy for Halloween 2022? Yahoo recently posted an article about the top selling candy this year. Halloween is just around the corner, which means folks are already stocking up on Halloween candy (and will probably have to stock up again after they eat all their stash). So, what are the most popular Halloween treats to buy?

    • Hershey Bar
    • Tootsie Roll
    • Twix
    • M&M’s
    • Butterfinger
    • Milky Way
    • 3 Musketeers
  • a new poll by YouGov asked kids eight to 14 to choose their favorite Halloween candy, pitting treats, as well as candy alternatives, in head-to-head matchups from a list of 76 options.
  • The Halloween options, which in addition to candy included things like apples, and granola bars, were then ranked by “win percentage.”
  • Topping the list as the favorite Halloween treat is a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, with a 75.9% win percentage.
