Easter isn’t quite Halloween, but it’s making an admirable attempt. Candy has become a staple of Easter, whether it’s Cadbury Creme Eggs, Jelly Beans, or the controversial Peeps. We might not be able to travel for Easter this year for large family gatherings, but we can still sit at home and stuff our face with chocolates. Much like Halloween candy, each state has its favorite Easter treat, some of which may come as a surprise.
Zippia used Google Trends to compile a map of each state’s favorite Easter candy. It looked at which treats peaked in search volume around Easter around the US, and used the data to create its map.
According to its findings, boiled eggs are the most popular Easter treat in 14 states. While not technically a candy, these are actually an Easter tradition for much of the nation, though we won’t pretend to understand why. Coming in a close second are Peeps (you either love them or hate them), followed by the delicious Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are definitely underperforming their potential.
Some other outliers include Starburst Jelly Beans, Chocolate Bunnies, White Chocolate Eggs, Caramel Eggs, and Mini Eggs.
