If you plan on stealing any Halloween candy from your children, don't feel guilty. Instead, take comfort in the fact that at you're part of a sizable majority. 

According to a survey from the National Confectioners Association, 72 percent of all parents say they will be dipping into their kids' stash (except they prefer to call it "sampling"). 

As to what candy, exactly, will be swiped?  A separate survey looked at the favorite Halloween candy by state:

Louisiana - Lemonheads
Arkansas - Jolly Ranchers
New Mexico - Candy Corn
Oklahoma - Snickers    

...and here in Texas, it's Starburst. 

Kids, guard them closely.
