America’s Favorite Movie Theatre Candy by State

When you go to the movies there is no way you’re walking into the theatre without stopping at the concession stand to pick up a big bucket of popcorn, a cold soda pop, and some candy, right?  We thought so!  After all, I think we all go to the movies just to have those fantastic snacks.

Cinemark, one of the nation’s largest theatre chains, has carefully watched what we eat when we go to the movies and has compiled a list of the most popular movie theatre candy by state.  Let’s take a look at their findings:

M&M’s – plain and peanut – is the most popular movie theatre candy, number one in 12 states.  The melt-in-your-mouth-not-in-your-hands candy is perfect for snacking on during the film and is great for sharing.

Red Vines is a big hit on the west coast and we’ll admit, it is one of our favorite licorice candies right next to Twizzlers.  While the tastes of Red Vines and Twizzlers are distinctly different, there’s no doubt this sweet treat is a huge winner among moviegoers.

Speaking of Twizzlers, the strawberry licorice treat is a favorite in four states.  We’re surprised it isn’t a favorite in more because like Red Vines, Twizzlers are great for sharing and are better to chew on than your fingernails during those scary movies!

Reese’s Pieces gets some love in only two states.  The chocolate-peanut butter cousin to M&M’s is a delicious treat that we are huge fans of but then again, any candy with that delicious combination is a winner.

Nestle Buncha Crunch candy is the number-one seller in four states.  This chocolate treat is just like a Nestle Crunch bar but in bite-size pieces making it perfect for snacking and sharing.

Fans of Cookie Dough Bites will be happy to hear this delicious treat is number one in six states.  While it doesn’t specify which flavor moviegoers are munching on, Cookie Dough Bites are available in chocolate chip, fudge brownie, cookies and cream, peanut butter, birthday cake, and even gingerbread for the holiday season.

Rounding out the list of top-selling movie theatre candy are Sour Punch Straws, Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers (perfect for spooky movies) and Sweet Tart Ropes which is number one in Alaska!

Of course, you don’t have to go to the theatre to enjoy all these movie candy favorites.  We can ship all of them to you in movie theatre-size packs perfect for enjoying movie night at home.
