Easter is this weekend and National Jelly Bean Day comes shortly after on April 22. And since no doubt we'll all partake of a bean or two in the coming days, it begs the question, "What is your favorite?"

According to CandyStore.com, Americans eat about 16 billion of these delectable little darlings each year.

The 10 top beans according to nine years of their sales data and surveys are:

  1. Black Licorice
  2. Buttery Popcorn
  3. Watermelon
  4. Cherry
  5. Cinnamon

Now personally, I might go for the popcorn of the cinnamon, but the rest they can keep in Arkansas. So what is the top of the jelly bean heap in Maine? Green apple.

Hmmm. Agree? Disagree? Participate in the poll below to find the Bangor area's favorite.
