Halloween is less than a month away, so it’s time to talk candy. It seems as though there are more candy options than ever on store shelves. It can be overwhelming in the most exhilarating way!

When it comes to which sweets to buy for trick-or-treaters you want to go with the crowd pleasers. No one wants to be the house that’s known for giving out gross candy or worse: A TOOTHBRUSH!. To make sure that doesn't happen, a website called CandyStore.com has revealed the most popular Halloween candy in the country.
