What’s the most popular Christmas candy in each state?

Halloween has come and gone, but with Christmas right around the corner, we’re still living in the season of sweets. This month of the year we’re more about chocolate Santas than Snickers and candy canes than candy corns, but preferences vary from state to state. Online retailer Candystore.com recently asked 30,000 of its customers to vote for their favorite Christmas candy in order to see how America’s sweet too varies state to state.

Kit Kats, Reese’s, Hershey’s get a glow in the dark makeover for Halloween 2018

No tricks here. This Halloween you have the option to hand out glow in the dark treats. Reese’s, Kit Kat, and Hershey’s have upped the fun factor for trick-or-treaters this year. Wrappers of the three iconic chocolates are getting a make-over for the holiday season. Snack-sized versions of the trio will now come in limited edition glow in the dark wrappers in 9.35-ounce packages (about $2.99 each). Hosts passing out the candy should switch out their porch light with a black light bulb to best view the boo-tiful candies. Placing small black lights in or around the bowl will also achieve the glow effect. Each brand is also launching new festive foils for their miniature size snacks.

Reese’s offering $10K, free candy to its most ‘Outrageous’ fan

Do you love peanut butter and chocolate? We mean, really love it? To celebrate the launch of its new Reese’s Outrageous bar, the company is giving away $10,000 and a year’s supply of candy to one true fan. The Outrageous bar is similar to the Nutrageous bar, but it swaps out the peanuts with bits of tiny Reese’s Pieces. Food & Wine had the chance for an early taste test last year, and this is how they described it: “The core of the bar is Reese’s classic, salty peanut butter with a layer of caramel surrounding it. That’s all enrobed by chocolate dotted with dozens of mini Reese’s Pieces. The candy shells of the Pieces add an extra crunch without making the whole thing too crumbly. Perhaps most surprisingly, the Outrageous! bar is not all that sweet. It’s definitely a peanut butter lover’s candy.” To enter the contest, fans can post photos and…
