Surprisingly missing from this list? Chocolate! Especially surprising since the top 3 favorite candies nationally didn’t even show up in the list. When it comes to favorite candy over all in the United States, number 1 is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Number 2 is Skittles. Number 3 is M&M’s.

There ya go, if you can still find Sour Patch Kids in stores, get ’em!
