October is in full swing, somehow.
Many people are eagerly anticipating the spookiest season of the year, and with it, one of the tastiest, too: trick-or-treat time.
The online grocery delivery and pick-up service Instacart revealed the top candy cravings among Americans — and it definitely contains chocolate-y dreams.
To determine the top 10 list, Instacart calculated the total weight of each type of candy sold on its platform in October 2022.
Is your go-to candy on the list?
"Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Peanut M&M's, and classic M&M's reaffirm their status as Halloween favorites among Americans coast to coast," Laurentia Romaniuk, Instacart’s trends expert, told FOX Business.
"Hershey's Milk Chocolate and KitKat also secured places within the top 10, further underscoring the spell that chocolate casts on Halloween enthusiasts nationwide."
It’s clear that chocolate reigns supreme in Americans’ candy bowls, but it's also interesting to see the non-chocolate items that made the cut.

"Comparing this list of the top 10 Halloween candies to last year reveals some exciting changes. We've got three newcomers: Tootsie Pops, Sour Patch Kids, and Candy Corn — two classics and a candy with a modern sour twist, which tells us there’s a delectable blend of nostalgia and contemporary flavors showing up in candy bowls," noted Romaniuk in a company blog post.
FYI: Starburst and Twizzlers are also on the top 10 list.
