It’s going to be a holly, jolly and flat Christmas in Kansas, this year.

“Kansas has been proven to be flatter than a pancake,” candy distributor reported. “If you’ve ever been to Kansas you really can’t dispute that.”

So no, reindeer candy corn (a red, green and white variation of the Halloween candy) did not top the charts.

“We were expecting reindeer corn to do well here, but maybe since there is already so much corn, they need to escape a little,” said.

Rather, a chocolate and pepperminty candy topped the charts.

Kansans sure do love their peppermint bark, the most popular Christmas candy in Kansas, according to The candy distributor conducted a survey of over 50,000 customers to gather the top candies in each state.

To confirm their results, the distributor checked in with other major candy manufacturers to ensure their survey corresponded with seasonal observations.
