Halloween Candy – Snickers
It’s two days after Halloween, and unless you let your kids run wild, that means there’s still a giant pile of halloween candy in your house. Which begs the question: Should you eat it ALL?
Well . . . as much as I hate to stand in the way of that plan, you probably shouldn’t. Or you will die.
According to the American Chemical Society, you can die from a SUGAR OVERDOSE if you eat 13.5 grams of sugar for every pound of your body weight in one sitting.
The average American man weighs 195.5 pounds. So if you eat 251 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, 155 fun size Snickers, or 102 fun size packages of M&Ms, you’ve got a chance of dropping dead.
The average American woman weighs 166.2 pounds. So you could die if you eat 214 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, 132 fun size Snickers, or 86 fun size packages of M&Ms.

Here’s a map showing the top candy in every state.
A new survey found the most popular Halloween candy in each state. And you might think, “Isn’t EVERY candy Halloween candy? So it’s just the most popular candy in each state?” And the answer is . . . sort of.
Because five states picked candy that you really only eat around Halloween . . . CANDY CORN came in first in Oregon, Wyoming, Texas, Tennessee, and South Carolina. No other candy won that many states.
But Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups got the most votes OVERALL. Although they’re only number one in two states . . . Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kats, and Butterfinger were the only three that got votes from all 50 states.
The most random result is West Virginia . . . they picked Oreos as their favorite candy. Get it together, guys.
But the biggest surprise is probably Arizona . . . people there picked Toblerone. Who knew they were so fancy?
