This Sunday is Easter, aka the third best candy Holiday of the year!
- 1st - Obviously Halloween
- 2nd - Valentine's Day
- Honorable Mention: Christmas
Personally, my favorite Easter candy is the Reese's peanut butter eggs (so. much. PB.), but I think the most popular treats for this Holiday are Peeps and Jelly Beans (not necessarily the favorites, but definitely the first ones you think of this time of year).
I found this info from CandyStore.com on each state's favorite flavor of Jelly Bean, and I love Wisconsin's favorite... Watermelon! YUM! First runner up was Juicy Pear (again, YUM!), and third place went to Cotton Candy.
Overall for the country though, we have a new #1. Last year it was Black Licorice (and might I say... EW), and this year, the top spot belongs to Butter Popcorn.
If you're a big Jelly Bean fan and Easter just won't be enough for you to truly celebrate your love, then I have great news for you... April 22nd is National Jelly Bean Day this year so GET CRAZY!
