As Easter Sunday approaches, people are looking to stock up on jellybeans, chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and other sweet favorites for the kids’ baskets… or maybe to keep for themselves.

Popular food delivery service DoorDash recently took a peek at current springtime trends, and they found out some very interesting facts.

First thing’s first, they broke down the most popular Easter candy by state, and it looks like North Carolina (along with over 30 other states) is a fan of Reese’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs. The seasonal Reese’s cup is the most popular candy nationwide.
