in Food

NEW YORK – October 25, 2019 – ( Newswire.com )

​​With Halloween being just days away,  Influenster, the leading product reviews platform, today announced those Halloween treats (no tricks!) that have people buzzing across the nation. With 40 million product reviews written by nearly six million members, Influenster has access to a wealth of data and insights that give them a finger on the pulse of what savvy shoppers are buying. From Sour Patch Kids to Skittles, M&M’s to Mounds, and Kit Kat to Crunch Bars, the infographic explores the most-reviewed candies based on the assessment of nearly one million candy reviews.

“Our members come to us to share feedback on the brands and products that make up their daily lives. Our mission is to make people smarter and more confident shoppers by arming them with personalized content and authentic peer-to-peer recommendations,” says Elizabeth Scherle, Co-founder and President of Influenster. “We take this responsibility seriously but also know how to have a little fun and spark some friendly competition. While a proud Iowa native, I am shocked by my home state’s love of Butterfinger. Personally, I’ll be stealing the Peanut M&M’s from my daughter’s trick-or-treat bag this year.”

To determine its annual list, Influenster pulled the most-reviewed candies on the platform overall, broke down this review data by state, and then normalized said review count based on each state’s population size on our platform. Full results below.
