6sqft has already brought you a map of what Americans love to eat most by state, but when October rolls around, New Yorkers forget about the avocados (yes, that’s our state’s favorite food) and move on to sweeter treats. So before you get yourself into a sugar coma today, check out this fun map of the most popular Halloween candy by state (h/t Mashable). Turns out, the most number of states chose candy corn, but Reeses Peanut Butter Cups had the highest number of total votes. New Yorkers, however, have a very strange favorite…

sweet tarts Sweet Tarts are the most popular Halloween candy in New York (we’re going to blame that one on the upstaters). But back to the top-performing candies; according to Mashable, “Though it was voted the top candy in five states, candy corn received a total of only 1,236 votes while Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, the national winner with 4,348 votes, was voted top candy in only two states. The delectable chocolate and peanut butter morsels got votes in all 50 states, however, an honor it shares only with Kit Kats and Butterfingers.”

The survey comes courtesy of Influenster, who surveyed 40,000 users (with an average of 28) to arrive at their findings.
