Calling Out A Couple States

Mississippi is the only state in the country who chose Hot Tamales as its favorite candy. I'm not a fan personally, and it would seem most others are also not. Ewww.

I'd also like to point out that several states chose Nerds as the best candy and I'm confused. Don't get me wrong, Nerds are alright, but I've never walked into a grocery store and thought "Man, I could really go for some Nerds."  Georgia, Washington, and New Hampshire love their Nerds.

North Dakota

Alright, North Dakota's favorite Halloween candy is caramel apple suckers. South Dakota also chose these treats as the crem de la crem. North and South Dakota were also the only states who made this choice.

My Question:
