With Halloween and Spooky Season starting up we want to kick things off right by talking about chocolate. Because everybody and their mother knows that if you put chocolate on a treat, it makes it better. But what treat do we New Jersyans, prefer to put chocolate on?
Shane Co. Has done it once again by looking at Google trends for every state to determine what treat they prefer to put chocolate on and the results personally were shocking for some states, as in the Midwest and South bacon of all things was the clear winner. Is chocolate covered bacon really that popular? Well, us over here in the the Northeast preferred a mix of fruits and berries such as Strawberries, Banana’s and Cherries. With New Jersey however, just like with pizza, we chose Pineapple to cover in chocolate.
Now while I may not totally love pineapple on pizza, I can get behind chocolate covered pineapple. What I cannot get behind are some of the other strange choices on the list like Florida which chose Popcorn and North Dakota which chose Potato Chips. I think they took the expression ‘Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it’ a bit too seriously here, but maybe it’s secretly the best food combination of all time. To find the full study Click Here
Overall, Bacon was the leading amount with nine states, Banana was second with eight states and Almonds was third with six. A close race, but I suppose if nine states say it’s good, there must be something there with Bacon. Though it does make you wonder what type of chocolate each state is using for their respective treat? So, do you agree with this study and what is your favorite treat to cover in chocolate? Halloween is the purrfect time to dress up and get candy for yourself and your community so we hope you keep updated on all the tricks and terrors with us at Magic 98.3
