Does Your Political Preference On Facebook Affect Your Sweet Tooth?

As President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney address questions about the economy and America’s future, they have not yet addressed the biggest question on everyone’s minds leading up to Halloween: What kind of candy do you want? New York-based customer relationship and loyalty platform CrowdTwist compared Facebook users’ political affiliations with their favorite candies. They found that Democrats tend to favor Hershey’s, while Republicans like Lindt.

CrowdTwist discovered that 40 percent of people who like Lindt on Facebook are more likely to be Republicans, while 70 percent of those who are fans of Hershey’s are more likely to be Democrats.
