What type of sweet tooth do you have? Do you like chocolate? Or perhaps you’re more of a sweet-and-sour candy fan, or a lover of fruity candy or candy corn?

Retail review website Influenster.com surveyed more than 40,000 people across the U.S. to determine which Halloween candies are the most popular in each state (and the District of Columbia) in 2016.

Here are some survey highlights:

  • Highest number of votes: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups received the highest total number of votes, according to Influenster. The candy was one of only three candies — Reese’s, Kit Kats and Butterfingers — to receive top treat votes in all 50 states.
  • Candy that earned top marks in the most states: This may come as a surprise, but candy corn was the most popular candy pick in five states: Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.

Here are the sweet state-by-state picks for America’s favorite Halloween candies:
