We all love this time of year for our own reasons, but if you have a sweet tooth, this is some Christmas info you need to know.

One thing is for sure around this time of year. Staying on your diet is nearly impossible with all the great food and all that wonderful Christmas candy that surrounds us. And while we're talking candy, did you ever wonder what the Garden State's favorite Christmas candy?

Well, according to the Candy Store website in an article at snjtoday.com, 2018's favorite Halloween candy is (no shock here) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures . And if peanut butter is not your style, Pez and Skittles round out the top 3.

I'm not sure what Pez has to do with Christmas, but I do like those Reese's minis in the festive foil wrappers. A bowl of those really is a Christmas tradition in many homes, and that's a good thing.

So, if you're going to dig in and abandon the diet for a little while this holiday season, at least you know you are not alone, and now you know what the top treats are in New Jersey, so dig in!
