According to an article on Yahoo, it's M&M's candy. Social media monitoring firm Viralheat found that Halloween candy has been a popular topic on Twitter this past week with almost 65,000 mentions.

Second to M&M's is Skittles, followed by Snickers, Twix and Reese's.

Snickers had the most positive comments with 68 per cent of people saying good things about it, notes a Yahoo blogger,. Twix, meanwhile, had the most negative comments.
