In January 2010, Facebook had just 337 million users — a figure that has ballooned to roughly 1 billion this year.

Halloween is approaching quickly, and it’s almost time to stock up on the big bags of sugary goodness to pass out to trick-or-treaters. Can’t decide between Skittles, Kit Kat, or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Let Facebook be your guide. Here are the most popular candies on the social network.
