Seems like these days there is a survey for everything.  Have you ever wondered about the candy preference differences between kids and adults?  Well, there's a survey for that too!

Recently the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel conducted a survey to answer this age old question.

Kids' Top 8 Favorite Halloween Candy:

  1. Smarties
  2. Starburst
  3. Twix
  4. Nerds
  5. Skittles
  6. Sour Patch Kids
  7. M&Ms
  8. Laffy Taffy

Adults' Top 8 Favorite Halloween Candy:

  1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  2. M&Ms
  3. Swedish Fish
  4. Hershey's Kisses
  5. candy corn
  6. Fun Dip
  7. Snickers
  8. Kit Kats

I think we can all rest easy now knowing that kids prefer sweet, sugary, fruit flavored candy, while adults lean more towards chocolate.

The only candy that crossed over into both top 8's were M&Ms, which I know we can all agree are the bomb Halloween candy.
