I’m Pretty Sure Each State’s Favorite Movie Candy Is Just A Joke
I saw a Twitter post about each state's favorite movie candy and I'm sure I wasn't the only one calling BS on this. After looking at it more closely though and realizing what the source is, I think they know it.
A graphic showing each state's favorite movie candy based on "social media, Walmart and Target," caught a lot of people's attention this week because some of the results were just absurd.
Here are a few of the candies listed that instantly stood out to me.
- Black Liquorice
- Necco Wafers
- Candy Dots
- Dum Dums
Yeah, you read that last one right. Not Raisinets. Just Raisins!
Maine's favorite movie candy, according to the "research," was Buncha Crunch. I didn't even know what that was until I looked it up and found out it's just bite size pieces of Nestle Crunch. No way that beats Raisinets or Mlik Duds.
If you look closely at this, you'll see it says in small print "unofficial." It was posted by Lights, Camera, Pod, a movie podcast by Bar Stool Sports, who are just the guys who would do something like this. It's a parody of all those infographics you see proclaiming each state's favorite thing, and I think it's hilarious.
Well played Bar Stool Sports. Sorry to pull the curtain back, but I just couldn't live with myself if people in my home state actually believed that Buncha Crunch was the best movie candy. Thanks for not making it raisins. Necco Wafers would have been cool though. Don't judge.
