Is it still too early to buy Halloween candy? I mean, right now, it's October 9th--22 days away from the big day. Is all that candy STILL going to be there in three weeks?

And, if you're in Kentucky, did you hold up your end of the bargain and purchase bags containing any of the Commonwealth's three favorite Halloween candies? Without knowing it?

Well...I did.

I guess I'm a statistic, because as Halloween candy goes, there's nothing better than a Tootsie Roll Pop...preferably cherry or raspberry.

And that is Kentucky's favorite Halloween candy.

3 Musketeers and Reese's Cups are next.

Across the river in Indiana, Hot Tamales lead the league. I like those, too. They're followed by Starburst and Snickers.

If you're curious about how the OTHER 48 states and the District of Columbia feel about Halloween candy, go to candystore.com
