We have all heard it before... again and again... Iowa's favorite Halloween candy Candy Corn. Hm. We've questioned it too. That's all well and good, but almost no one gives it out on Halloween. Unless they grab gobs of it and pitch it freely into a kids bag (gross) it's not likely to happen.

So what is the most popular candy to give out? Meaning what are us old people giving the lil' whipper snappers who are all over our yard? Oooh it's a good one. My personal favorite:


Mmm. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Yep, according to CandyStore.com the same website that said we love Candy Corn, Iowans spend the most on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for Halloween handouts. This is why candy makers and grocery stores plop out their Halloween candy in August. So by the night before Halloween, we're on bag 15 of candy. Oh by the way, if you're handing out Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, I'll throw on a $5 mask and be right over. And over and over again. Trick-or-treat!
