Boone, NC (PRWEB) October 28, 2004
In a shock to chocolate lovers everywhere, candy corn tops this year's list as the most popular Halloween candy.
Hundreds of people from all walks of life have responded to ExtremeChocolate.com's new Halloween candy survey, which asks: "What Halloween candy is your favorite?" Reese's Peanut Butter Cups is currently in the #2 position.
Previous studies from other sources have found Snickers to be #1 -- but Snickers ranks third this year.
"I'm stunned," says Dr. Audri G. Lanford, head chocoholic researcher and author of a new ebook called "Chocolate, Chocolate, and More Chocolate: The Ultimate Chocolate LoverÂs Guide For Enjoying, Cooking and Making Chocolate!" "The idea that candy corn is more appealing than chocolate amounts to sacrilege to real chocolate lovers. It's true that we didn't distinguish between plain and chocolate candy corn in the survey, but still..."
This study provides three kinds of important data:
1) Suggestions (based on real data) for what to buy for the trick-or-treaters' who visit your house.
2) Clues about what Halloween candy may be left over after Halloween for you to enjoy.
3) It shows that lots of people will answer a non-political poll -- even right before an election. (Note: the poll did not distinguish between blue and red states.)
The Halloween candy survey is ongoing so the results may change over time. You can vote and view the current results at: http://www.extremechocolate.com/halloweencandy.html
