Last year, CandyStore.com found out that Marylanders were more inclined to buy Milky Way, and the year before that, you guessed it, Milky Way. "Maryland consumes over 41,000 pounds of Milky Way bars around Halloween," stated the website.

The only other states that put Milky Way above all other candy were Missouri and Vermont.

The top five nationwide winners were Skittles (No. 1), M&M's (No. 2), Snickers (No. 3), Reese's Cups (No. 4), and Starburst (No. 5). You can check out the remainder of the results by clicking HERE.

This year, the National Retail Federation has estimated that candy lovers will spend $2.6 billion on Halloween candy, according to Forbes.com. How insane is that?? That's a helluva lot of candy! I can feel the cavities starting to form already ...

So, what do you think? Are you surprised by Maryland's results? What's YOUR favorite Halloween candy? Personally, I'm a big fan of 3 Musketeers, but that's just me. Let us know in the comments below. And Happy Halloween!
