Every state's favorite Valentine's Day candy should be a box of chocolate. And I'll explain why. There's something for EVERYONE. From milk to dark chocolate and caramel to coconut, there's bound to be your favorite flavor.

But here in Illinois and in Wisconsin, hold the chocolate. Turns out we prefer something else on Valentine's Day.

Conversation hearts.

YUCK! Here's how we compare to the rest of the country according to Candystore.com -

I'm disappointed. Especially considering conversation hearts aren't good anymore. I had some this past weekend and they don't even taste the same! So I'm more down with the chocolate states.

Also special shoutout to Alabama for being the only state with candy necklaces ranked in first place.
