The most-referenced candy in music is …

As you consider what kind of Halloween candy to give out – or to eat – here’s something else to consider.

Billboard magazine reports the most-mentioned candy in music is M&Ms, according to the lyric services provider LyricFind.

M&Ms have been mentioned 122 times in songs.

That includes references to M&Ms as slang for something else, but it does not say whether it counts mentions of the rapper Eminem. Skittles are mentioned 100 times, putting it in second place.

After that, the most-mentioned candies, in order, are Hershey’s, Kit Kat, Jolly Rancher, Tootsie Roll, Starburst, Pop Rocks, Laffy Taffy, Twizzlers and LifeSavers.
