What's your favorite Christmas Candy?

My grandma would send my dad and me those metal tins of home cookies, candy, and my favorite the haystack. It's been a while since I have had any type of Christmas candy. Not a big candy person in general but sometimes I'll dabble.

My wife Jamie when she thinks of Christmas candy she thinks of the red and green M&M's and that's just because it's usually what people have out.

What do you think of when you think of Christmas candy?

According to Food&Wine "CandyStore.com says they received feedback from over 16,000 of their customers, and then coupled that observational data from the manufacturers and distributors they work with to determine the most popular Christmastime candies in every state — and to look at the larger macro-trends that emerged from those findings."

In 2022 there were two candies that saw declines from last year. Peppermint and Candy canes were the two candies that saw the biggest drop in purchases. Candystore.com says "California and Texas are the two largest states and they both cooled on peppermint bark this year.  So peppermint bark is moving backward" and "Candy canes are not the universally-loved Christmas candy you might think. They are often found on the WORST Christmas candy list, in fact. People who don't like them cite reasons like they can be messy to eat, hard to unwrap in one whole piece, and once sucked on for a while, become sharp and dangerous."

But, what candy is the most popular in Idaho? It's not Candy Canes!
