What’s the Most Popular Jelly Bean Flavor in Indiana – Find Out Here
Easter is just a couple of weeks away, and while Easter candy has certainly evolved over time to include a wide variety of tasty chocolates, along with sweet, sour, and tangy confections, the jellybean still reigns supreme as the top choice when your sweet tooth starts to twitch. While everyone has their personal flavor preference, one website has determined the most popular flavors for each state in the country, including right here in Indiana.
Full disclosure, I love candy, and sweets in general. My sweet tooth is the size of a softball. With that said, I don't care for jellybeans. For me it's more of a texture thing than a flavor thing. That gritty texture of the sugar crystals makes me feel like I'm chewing on sand. However, I have found the Starburst and Sweet Tart brand of jellybeans aren't half bad. They seem to have a much less gritty texture I despise, and pack a bit more punch when it comes to their flavor. Plus, neither brand mixes in that disgusting licorice flavor. Seriously, those are the worst. I'd rather lick a car tire than eat a licorice-flavored jellybean.
Anyway, the website, Candy Store.com, recently combed nine years of sales data to determine the most popular flavor of jellybean in each state, and while our neighbors in Kentucky are apparently big fans of the aforementioned licorice flavor, we here in the Hoosier state prefer our jellybeans to be more on the fruity side as the data shows we're partial to Blueberry flavored beans.
I'll admit, this surprises me a bit. I would have thought more along the lines of Cotton Candy considering our affinity for carnival food. However, it turns out our little corner of the country is one of 10 states responsible for 98% of the nation's commercial blueberry production, according to the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council.
What about you? Is Blueberry your go-to when you see a bowl full of jellybeans, or are you a non-conformist who prefers a different flavor on their tongue? Let me know in the comments below.
