Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're looking to stock up on candy, you're gonna want to get the stuff that people actually like. You don't want to be stuffing bags with Smarties - you'll get a reputation around the neighborhood, people will start skipping your house during trick-or-treating, and everyone will generally think you're a loser. (And I'm saying this as somebody who likes Smarties).

A new study revealed the most popular Halloween candy in every single state in the US - and Montana's was actually a pretty unique choice. We're the only state in the country that selected Tootsie Pops. If anybody knows how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, it's probably one of us.

This isn't a choice I necessarily agree with - I'm a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup man all the way, which was the most popular candy across the country - but it's a good indication that you should grab some Tootsie Pops while you're shopping for candy before Halloween. Montana trick-or-treaters will thank you for it.
