DoorDash claims that this is the most “popular” Easter candy in California

As the festive spirit of Easter envelops California, the state’s residents are treated to an array of vibrant candy displays, offering everything from rich chocolates to the iconic Peeps. Amidst this sweet abundance, a recent study by DoorDash has pinpointed the reigning favorite of Easter treats in the Golden State.

The Cadbury Crème Egg has emerged as California’s preferred choice for Easter candy, a sentiment shared with other states including Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Michigan, Maine, Vermont, and Connecticut. This beloved chocolate, known for its creamy filling, captures the essence of the holiday’s indulgence and joy.

Contrastingly, states such as Texas, Florida, and Georgia have shown a strong preference for Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, highlighting regional differences in Easter candy favorites across the nation.

This intriguing insight into Easter candy preferences was derived from an analysis of the most popular purchases on the DoorDash app during the last Easter season. The findings not only shed light on state-specific favorites but also reveal the diverse palette of Easter candy enjoyed nationwide. The top selections among DoorDash users encompass a wide variety of treats:

  1. Reese’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs Candies
  2. Cadbury Crème Egg Milk Chocolate Easter Candy
  3. Starburst Jelly Beans Original
  4. Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate Candy Share Pack
  5. Assorted Easter Chocolate Candy Bulk Variety Pack (including Snickers, Twix, Milky Way, and more)
  6. Galerie Value Jellybeans Filled Egg
  7. Lindt Milk Chocolate Bunny
  8. Dove Milk Chocolate Easter Eggs
  9. Peeps Marshmallow Chicks Candy
  10. Ferrero Rocher Fine Hazelnut Chocolates Easter Bunny

As Easter approaches, Americans are projected to spend a significant portion of their holiday budget on candy, with estimates from the National Retail Federation (NRF) suggesting a total expenditure of around $3.1 billion. This figure accounts for nearly 30% of the total food budget for Easter.

However, the National Confectioners Association (NCA) predicts the spending might even reach closer to $5 billion, based on historical purchasing patterns.

This study by DoorDash not only highlights California’s sweet spot for Cadbury Crème Eggs but also underscores the broader trends in Easter candy preferences, reflecting the diverse tastes and traditions that enrich the holiday experience across the United States.
