What's wrong with Arkansas: Halloween edition

An on-line candy merchant has compiled 10 years of candy sales
to determine the most popular Halloween candies in the 50 states and the results for Arkansas are a sad commentary.

No. 1: Jolly Ranchers
No. 2: Butterfinger
No. 3: Hot Tamales

Blue states tend to run more to my liking, but hat tip to Iowa, where the No. 1 candy is the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Amen to that. And it was followed by M&Ms and Butterfinger.

Worst state to trick-or-treat? I'd nominate South Dakota, with preferences, in order, for Starburst, Jolly Ranchers and candy corn.
