Candy is such a subjective personal preference. I have no idea how anyone can claim to know everyone's favorite. The internet thinks it does and it claims both Missouri and Illinois love the same Valentine candy. Let's talk - literally.

Candy Store just released their 2023 version of the favorite Valentine candy for each state in America. Their map contains the most candy you'll ever see on a map and that's high praise.

For both Missouri and Illinois, the favorite Valentine candy (allegedly) is conversation hearts. I find it interesting that Iowa rebels against the rest of the Midwest and embraces M & M's. It's not often I agree with the children of the corn, but in this instance, I do.

The scariest aspect of this annual candy poll? Missouri and Illinois have the same favorite candy as...California. Gnarly, dude.

The Candy Store favorite Valentine choices is an interesting read if you have friends and/or family that live elsewhere.
