Of all holidays, Halloween is probably number one for candy. But Christmas is a close second. And, as we get closer to the holiday, we now know what Iowa's favorite is. Surprisingly – read: thankfully – it's not candy corn!

It's actually M&M's, according to CandyStore.com. I'm 100% onboard with this one. There's just something about the red, white and green ones that are extra tasty. Coming in at number two was mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

For Illinois, the choices were the same, just flipped. Reese's cups came in at number one and M&M's at number two.

Candy corn did make it as one state's favorite though! And apparently, at Christmas it's called "reindeer corn." That's the top choice of Utah, Alabama AND Connecticut. I've never had reindeer corn, but I have to think it's the same as plain candy corn, just with different colors right?

Regardless, Iowa and Illinois made some great choices in stocking stuffers.
