Facebook recently released a list of candies with the most populous fanbases:

  1. Skittles – 23.39 million

Facebook found that women prefer Hershey’s Kisses, while men choose Mike and Ike, who broke up earlier this year. People between the ages of 13 and 20 are big fans of Life Savers GummiesMike and Ike, and Twix. Facebook discovered that users over the age of 30 tend to like M&MsNestle Crunch, and also Pop Rocks — but hopefully not mixed with Coca-Cola.
