Which Halloween candy is your state's favorite?

According to Influenster , who reportedly surveyed more than 40,000 of its members, they solved the festive riddle.

Based on their research, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, Kit Kat and Butterfinger were the most popular candies across the United States.

However, candy corn was the top choice for the most states -- five. (Poll: Let us know in the comments if you're a fan or not when it comes to candy corn!)

So, which calorie-satisfying treat did Arizonans reportedly choose?

The answer: Toblerone , the famous Swiss chocolate bar.

Surprising? Perhaps.

California chose Life Savers. Nevada chose Jolly Rancher. Utah picked Nerds, and New Mexico picked 3 Musketeers. You can view the entire list here .

With this new found knowledge, we looked into the history of the Toblerone .

Here are six things we learned:

  • The Toblerone chocolate bar was invented in 1908 by Theodore Tobler and his cousin, Emil Baumann.
  • The name is a combination of the family's last name, Tobler, and Torrone, the Italian word for honey and almond nougat.
  • Why the shape? According to the company, the candy bar's look was inspired by a line of dancers in Paris.
  • Because Mr. Tobler felt the candy bar would be a hit, he patented it in 1909 in Bern, Switzerland.
  • In 2007, Toblerone came out with a new product, the Toblerone Fruit & Nut Bar.
  • Toblerone turned 100 in 2008, which means, in 2016, it is now 108 years old!
