The Most Popular Christmas Candy In Iowa

We all have food that we specifically associate with a holiday.  In this case, I have a candy that I associated with Christmas.

It's M&Ms.  

When I was younger, several households in my family would set out candy dishes for Christmas.  Among the options would be bowls full of M&M's.  I loved them.  I ate ALOT of them.  And now I associate bowls of M&Ms with Christmas.

Even though I was born and raised in Missouri, I apparently share a love of M&M's for Christmas with Iowans.

The experts at have "crunched" the numbers and found that, in a lot of instances, the candy that states associate with Christmas are not necessarily connected to the holiday.  That's the case in Iowa, where M&M's rule.
