Easter Sunday is this Sunday, March 31st. If you plan on hosting an Easter egg hunt or plan on going to one this weekend, you'll probably find this kind of candy the most in the plastic eggs.

A new study found that Iowa and Illinois actually agree on their favorite kind of Easter candy for 2024. They don't agree on their favorite Peeps color, but at least they know which chocolatey, peanut butter candy to put in eggs.


If you're doing some last-minute Easter candy shopping, you might not find this kind of candy on the shelves. The best you can do is find something similar which should be too hard.
