We can officially celebrate the holidays! It's December!

Get your trees up, sing your carols and get excited for stockings filled with holiday candy.

The best holiday candy?

Why... it's Reese's Peanut Butter Cups of course!

Total disclaimer... I don't eat peanut butter. I know, I know, I'm crazy because it's the best, but it makes me feel like there's a cat in the room... because I'm allergic to cats.

We can talk about that on another day, but today we are reveling in the fact that Illinois is loving the most popular candy of all!

At least according to this website...where the author states, 'People in Illinois are smart. They reversed the flow of a river, for goodness sakes! In 1887!! Which makes it not surprising at all that their favorite holiday candy is Reese’s Cup Minis. They’re the best. M&M’s and Hershey Kisses were the runners-up.'

What's your favorite Christmas candy?

Mine is m&ms.
