For the third year in a row, the most popular Halloween candy in Michigan is candy corn, according to Candystore.com.
Michiganders eat over 150,000 pounds of candy corn around Halloween. Starburst and Skittles come in a respectable second or third.
"The favorite Christmas candy in Michigan is also reindeer corn, which is the same thing in Xmas colors," the website said. "It's obviously a thing up there, like sports disappointment and flammable water."
The data comes from 11 years of sales data from 2007 to 2017 looking at the months leading up to Halloween.
