Quad Citians love their sweets, but what's our area's favorite candy? Yesterday my KIIK 104.9 Facebook post showed many of you love Peanut Butter Blossoms as your favorite Christmas cookie, but what about your favorite candy?

Candystore.com has broken down the most favorite candy by state and I'm not surprised by the results. Peanut butter continues to rule our area as Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Mini's is the favorite in Illinois.

Iowans like to keep it simple. M&M's are the favorite with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in a solid second place. M&M's come in second for Illinois and Hershey Kisses are number three in both states.

Reese's is gaining ground over the country. Last year it was only the favorite in three states; this year it was the favorite in 10 state.

Reindeer corn (I'll pass) reigns in Michigan and Alabama and Pez is losing ground. It was the top candy last year and only ranked #1 in three states this year. I'm not sure what my favorite candy is, but I can tell you what my WORST candy would be-cherry cordials. Yick!
