HARTFORD -- With Halloween not far away, the website influenster.com surveyed Americans about their favorite candy.

The results showed that people in Connecticut preferred Reese's Peanut Butter cups. Apparently, people in neighboring Rhode Island also like chocolate in their peanut butter because it was their favorite too.

Our New England neighbors preferred the "unexplainably juicy" flavor of Starburst fruit chews. Massachusetts and Maine chose the colorful square treat. Vermonters apparently prefer nuts and went for Almond Joy. Folks in New Hampshire went for the longtime favorite, Tootsie Roll.

In what may be a reflection of their nature, New York residents favored SweeTARTS.

Overall, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup was the highest ranked candy among the 40,000 people surveyed by the site.

Do you agree with the results?
