America’s Favorite Jelly Bean Is…

This Controversial Flavor Is The New #1 Favorite In The USA

Easter is only a week and half away, and National Jelly Bean Day is fast approaching (April 22nd), so set out to find which flavor of Jelly Bean people in the U.S. like the most. They collected data over a 10 year period and surveyed over 12,000 people to determine the national favorite.

First, the Utah winner….Cherry! (not bad, if I do say so myself). Last year, black licorice was the overall favorite for the country. Now, there’s a new #1 and I’m not so sure it’s the best flavor of jelly bean.

The new Favorite Jelly Bean of the U.S.A. is….buttered popcorn. What?!? No way, that is the favorite in the country. Maybe they’ll send Utah all of the cherry flavored jelly beans so we don’t have to eat the others! Enjoy this map of the best flavors state-by-state.
