BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 21: Christmas candy and candy canes stand on display for sale at the Christmas market at Gendarmenmarkt square on the market's opening day on November 21, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. Christmas markets, which usually sell Christmas tree ornaments, gluhwein, ginger bread and hand-made crafts, are an intrinsic part of central European Christmas tradition.

According to a new study, we’ll spend a total of $1.93 BILLION on Christmas candy this year.  And people in every state will spend their share differently.  

The study found the most popular Christmas candy in every state, and here are the results . . .

1.  Red and green M&M’s are the top candy in eight states.  Christmas Pez dispensers and candy also took eight states.

2.  The most traditional Christmas candies finished close behind.  Candy canes won seven states, and peppermint bark won four states.

3.  “Reindeer corn,” which is the candy corn industry’s way of staying relevant for an extra month, somehow won in Alabama, Michigan, and Utah.

4.  And bravo to North Dakota.  They’re the only state that decided the best way to celebrate Christmas is to bite the heads off of chocolate Santas.
