Spooky season has officially kicked off which means it's time to pick the perfect pumpkin and the most memorable Halloween costume and of course the best candy for trick or treaters. And the parents who enjoy eating that candy just as much as the kids.

Candystore has put together their yearly list of the most popular Halloween candy state-by-state. And the data they've complied about our Halloween candy spending throughout the U.S., shows we're pretty serious about our treats. This year, Halloween candy spending is predicted to be 16% higher than last year and their is also a 15 percent increase in online shopping for candy.

The results are not just about the national bestsellers, but also about what kids want in their trick or treat bags at the end of Halloween night. So in order to be the most talked about house to get the best candy from in Michigan, here are the Top 3:

  1. Starburst
  2. Candy corn
  3. Butterfinger

We seem to like a nice mix of chocolate, fruity flavors, and a classic. But, at the end of the Halloween night, most kids (and adults) are happy to get free candy from the neighborhood. And have a fun time doing just that.
