Sour Patch is what MEHS students want in their trick or treat bags.  

The most popular Halloween candy varies by states.   According to USA Today,  in Illinois the favorite is Kit Kat (with consumers buying 196,089 pounds of Kit Kat); the second favorite is Sour Patch Kids (137,257 pounds); third is Snickers (91,494 pounds).

In Japan, an adult can buy a sake-flavored Kit Kat — that tastes like rice wine, YUK!  Did you know that the creator of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups named the treat after himself?.   Did you also know that the inventor of the Tootsie Roll created a precursor to Jell-O?  (Mentalfloss.com)  (I guess we’re pretty good Illinoisans because) in a random survey of 100 Morton East students, 60 students reported that their favorite candy is Sour Patch. 

“My favorite candy out of the five is Sour Patch because they are colorful, and I like how they taste,” senior Kimberly Dominguez said.  

Even though Sour Patch is her favorite candy, other students prefer the sweet and caramel side.  

“My favorite candy is snickers because I like chocolate and peanuts,” senior Gerardo Rodriguez said. 

Although sour and sweet candies are well loved by people everyone has a different taste.  

“My favorite candy is Milky Way because it has caramel inside,” senior Maria Sanchez said.

    Did you just ask the kids what is their favorite candy or did you give them choices to choose from? When was the survey done? Also what was the second favorite candy of East students?

    i definitely agree that sour patch kids and kit-kat’s are a #1 favorite candy. I cant eat sour patch kids because i break-out as much as i love them its a risk when eating them. Its a good short informational story!

    I think sour patches are nasty. I think they are over hyped and also i think students will eat any candy that they are given. The fact about the reese’s is interesting though. What other candies did you survey? What were the second and third favorite candies?

    I find this to be a very good and accurate article. The facts that were given to us in the beginning were very interesting, and I would have never thought that Sour Patch candy was so popular at our school.
