In case you needed a reason to splurge on sugar, June is National Candy Month.

Curious to know what each state's favorite candy is, The Daily Meal reached out to to find out. While exact sales numbers weren't provided, here's the low-down on the most popular candies per state over the last 18 months.

M&M's were the most popular candy in a total of 13 states including our neighbors in Wisconsin and nearby Illinois. Skittles weren't far behind with popularity in 10 states. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were third most popular in only seven states including South Dakota. Sour Patch Kids were fourth most popular candy in 4 states including North Dakota and Iowa.
