Michigan's favorite Christmas candy is reindeer corn, according to

Reindeer corn was a country-wide favorite, finishing in the top 3 in 13 different states. It's been Michigan's favorite for three years in a row now. 

Reese's Cups Minis took the number 2 position and peppermint park was number 3.

Here's what the website had to say:

Yup, it’s candy corn again. Reindeer corn, that is. Michigan has consistently shown its preference to the stripy corn kernal candies. It’s been number one for Halloween and holiday candy for 3 straight years.

What can we say? The football team color is “Maize” for God’s sake. I’ve never heard of that color existing in any other context. Michigan is part of the Corn Belt. They even genetically modified their sweet corn to increase the sugar content from 9% to 35%. They just LOVE the corn.

But, there could be reason for hope for those in the mitten state who cry foul. Reese’s Cup Minis have leaped into the #2 position in a strong way. Will they unnseat candy corn in it’s own backyard? We’ll see what happens next year.
