West Virginia was joined by Arkansas, Delaware, Maryland, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Virginia in its love for the milk chocolate and peanut butter combo.


Easter M&M’s were the U.S.’s top choices with nine states listing the candy that “melts in your mouth, not in your hand,” as their favorite, followed by chocolate foil eggs, chocolate bunnies and Peeps.


Meanwhile, has released its annual list of each state’s favorite jelly bean flavors. For West Virginia, buttered popcorn, blueberry and cinnamon came out as the top three. Buttered popcorn is the second most popular flavor nationally, while cinnamon was first and blueberry was 15th.
