There’s A New Winner For The Most Popular Halloween Candy In Ohio

The results are in, and this year, a new winner was crowned.

In 2019, the most popular Halloween Candy in Ohio was M&Ms. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of the candy-coated chocolates were sold in the Buckeye State last year and it wouldn’t have been unreasonable to assume they’d come out on top for a third year in a row.

But it’s 2020 and everything is a little bit weird, which is why I’m here to announce that the most popular candy in Ohio this year is the Blow Pop. 170,236 pounds of Blow Pops were sold around Ohio this year, and that’s sort of wild to even think about.

The analysis was a part of a study done by, an online bulk candy distributor. Going back as far as 10 years, they combed through tons of their own sales data as well as information from manufacturers, to put together a set of solid numbers for each state.

Sure, Blow Pops may not be the most exciting candy, but we’re definitely better off than that awful state up north where the winner was Candy Corn. Of course, Michigan. Of course your favorite candy is Candy Corn.

We may not be having a normal trick-or-treat this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy some sweets.
