Here comes Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail. It's hard to believe that Easter is this Sunday.
Thus the annual fest of chocolate bunnies and jelly beans is almost upon us! While everyone has their favorites, it might surprise you to know what the most popular Easter candy is in Oklahoma as a whole.
I'm sure the debate that follows will be heated and passionate. This candy, if that's what you want to call it, has a real love/hate type effect on most people. I have to say I'm not a fan, personally, I think they're gross!
A holiday survey was done by Zippia.com that lists the most popular Easter candy or treat in each state.
What's surprising is the most popular of all with around 14 states listing it as their all-time favorite, hard-boiled eggs!
Now don't get me wrong I love hard-boiled eggs, especially Deviled Eggs, but out of all the Easter treats and candies I don't think it would rank in the top 5 for me.
Coming in at number 2 is jelly beans, at least that one makes sense. The third most popular Easter candy was Peeps with the chocolate bunny in fourth.
In Oklahoma, Peeps are the most popular Easter candy or treat. I've never been a fan of Peeps, even with all the new crazy flavors that are out now.
Even so, the animal-shaped, marshmallow, and sugar encrusted holiday icon is the Sooner State's favorite.
