Most Popular Halloween Candy in 2022

This time of year the grocery store isles are stocked full of Halloween treats. From chocolates to gummies to pretzels and stickers, they have it all. But let's be real, we all have our favorites and are very judgemental when it comes to our friend's and families' candy choices.

As you can see, New York's favorite candy is Sour Patch kids. Personally, I'm a fan so there's nothing to strange to see there. However, it's when we get to the 2nd and 3rd top picks in New York that we start questioning our home state.

Sanderson Sister Airbnb Near Salem MA

This is not a movie set it is an actual house made to look just like the Sanderson Sister's home from Hocus Pocus 2 and it will be available on Airbnb for one night only. According to the listing, Winifred Sanderson and her sisters are opening up the house for 2 guests for one night only on October 20, 2022. And the big hitch is you can't book it until October 12th, 2022 at 1 PM. It is my prediction that this listing will break the internet that day when Hocus Pocus Fans try to rent it all at the same time. FYI the scariest thing about this charming stay may be the fact that there is no indoor plumbing.
