Have you ever sat down and wondered to yourself what Christmas are popular in other states?  Or maybe right here in Louisiana?  Well, Candystore.com has put out an interactive map to show us just that age old question!

My top 3 favorite Christmas candies are:

  1. Fruit flavored candy canes
  2. Holiday themed Pez
  3. Peppermint Hersey kisses

A honorable mention for my list would be Oreo balls!  If you know how to make Oreo balls, please pass that down to the younger generations.  Do your part to make sure Oreo balls don't vanish from existence.   PSA over, lol.

Some states had Jolly Ranchers as their #1 Christmas candy.  Really?!  I remember getting Jolly Ranchers in May at my Middle School concession stand at recess.  Don't try to pass that off as a Christmas Candy!

The candy market is big business with "sweet" profits.  See what I did there?  Candystore.com spoke with the National Confectionary Association, and they estimate that holiday candy sales will be $1.93 Billion this year.

Did your favorite Christmas candy make the list for your state?  Let us know in the comments!
