Halloween is the the best day of the year to enjoy all of your favorite candy bars. Trick-or-treaters end up with a stash full of nearly every type. But it’s only natural that we prefer some brands over others.

There are certain candies that we love to hate, like candy corn, banana Laffy Taffy, and Dots. Some picks are more polarizing (like those green caramel apple lollipops). But, more often than not, chocolate bars lead the Halloween candy pack.

We recently posted a photo of six common chocolate candies on Instagram with the caption "One Halloween Candy Must Go" to poll our followers on their least favorite of the bunch. There wasn’t a complete consensus, but there was a very clear frontrunner for the title: 3 Musketeers.

In our own (extremely objective) Halloween candy ranking, 3 Musketeers are nowhere near top spot. Our reasoning: nougat exists in plenty of other candy bars, but in more interesting ways.

Milky Ways also have caramel. Snickers up the ante by also adding in peanuts. Toblerones have almonds, honey, and are shaped into fun little triangles. 3 Musketeers just seems bland and boring by comparison.

The 3 Musketeers shade isn’t just anecdotal, either. According to sales data collected by Candystore.com, most states forgo buying the candy bar. Their data indicates that 3 Musketeers are a popular pick solely in the state of Mississippi.


If you're among the seemingly few people who actually enjoy eating 3 Musketeers, consider yourself lucky—you'll end up with the Halloween leftovers nobody wants.
