1. Buttered Popcorn

It’s salty, it’s buttery and it’s officially the most popular jelly bean flavor in the country.

2. Cinnamon

Moving up from third place this spicy flavor is a sign of the trend towards spiced candies overall.

3. Black Licorice

This is a divisive flavor: you either love it or you hate it—but clearly it’s currently getting more love than hate as it takes the top third spot in the country for popular jelly bean flavors.

4. Cherry

As one the most traditional jelly bean flavors it should come as no surprise that this sweet staple is still a frontrunner after decades.

5. Watermelon

This flavor is popular across the country because you can never go wrong with the sweet taste of summer fun.
