Here is The Most Popular Halloween Candy in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky
When it comes to Halloween candy, you want to make sure your house has the good stuff. Here is a breakdown of the Tri-state's favorite candy.
When it comes to Halloween, this time of year gives me the warm and fuzzies. I think its because when I was a kid, my dad was the only person on our street who went all out for Halloween. He had a few Halloween blow molds, and lights he would string up, and I always loved it and thought it was so cool how our house was the Halloween house.
Now that I have my own home, I want to do the same thing! Although Halloween is bigger now than ever before, I want to be the house on the block with the best decorations, and the best candy. I'm not there yet decoration-wise (some people are so incredibly creative and have much more money to spend on 12-foot skeletons than I do) but I'm working on it! In the meantime, while I'm slowly adding more decorations to my arsenal, I know one thing I CAN do, is make sure I have the best candy on the block!
