About This Quiz

When your sweet tooth takes over your willpower, which candies do you pick up at the convenience store? During this candy quiz, you'll get the chance to pick all your favorites and a few more. This virtual candy shop has everything you could ever want, and it can tell you which U.S. region you should really be living in. 

From the Necco factories of New England to the salt water taffy stands along America's shores, there's no short supply of candies to choose from. We will not necessarily base your regional destiny on the candies you want, though. A whole lot of it will depend on the sweets you choose when you are in a certain mood. 

Sometimes, your sweet tooth begs for Sour Patch Kids; other times, it screams for caramel cubes. It's the way you follow your palate's instincts that will lead us to your ideal region of the United States. Although many of the candies you see might be sugarcoated, we don't want you to hold anything back. If something sounds good or it would satisfy a craving, pick it!
