When you think of Christmas Candy, where does your mind go? From peppermints to candy canes to chocolate Santas, those are the typical Christmas candies to me. With the holiday season here, we are seeing a rise in more holiday candies being bought to enjoy at home or around with friends and family. But, not everyone eats peppermints or chocolate-covered Santas during the holidays. Which is kinda insane to me. Some people just see other candies as their version of “Christmas candy.”

Forbes put out their list of the most popular Christmas candy in every state. According to, 93% of people will gift someone chocolate or candy for the holidays. Everyone enjoys sweets, so why not send them out as a cute gift? In North Carolina, the go-to most popular Christmas candy is Starburst. Honestly, I have not had a Starburst in so long so it is kinda cool to see that it is the state’s most popular. Not sure who is gifting people Starburst, but hey kinda cool! As for South Carolina, its favorite Christmas candy is M&M’s. Again, love the candy any day so for Christmas never really saw it as a specific “Christmas candy.”

Check out what other random candies made the list for other states.
