You could be stuffing Hersey's kisses in the stockings (as long as they don't melt by the fireplace), hanging candy canes on the Christmas tree, using M&M's to decorate Christmas cookies, and melting down Hershey's bars for homemade hot chocolate!

So what are the most popular Christmas candies in New Jersey this year? CandyStore.com did the math by asking 16,000 of their customers across all 50 states.

This threw me for a loop, because I would have thought candy canes would be number one! Actually, candy cane popularity has seen a decrease across all 50 states. But we do still like them! It's not quite Christmas without them.

#2 - Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Reese's is a favorite candy all year round. And the mini peanut butter cups are so versatile for making creative holiday treats!

And for number 1... Drumroll please!
