Valentine Sweets – By State

America’s favorite Valentine candy is . . . FRUIT?  Someone looked at Google stats to find the Valentine’s Day treat each state searches for more than other states do.  And chocolate-covered strawberries rank first. Here in Colorado, we apparently prefer the #2 treat…M&M’s. I can live with that.

1.  Chocolate strawberries with 10 states.  (Georgia, Illinois, Mississippi, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.)

2.  M&M’s, eight states.  (Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wyoming.)

3.  Edible chocolate roses, also eight states.  (Alabama, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, and Washington.)

4.  Chocolate truffles, five states.  (Connecticut, Louisiana, Montana, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin.)

5.  Dove Chocolate, five states.  (Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Minnesota, and Utah.)

6.  Conversation Hearts, four states.  (Iowa, Maine, Michigan, and North Dakota.)

7.  Hershey Kisses, four states.  (Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, and South Dakota.)

8.  California is the only state where “candy necklaces” are first . . . New York and Texas love “heart-shaped chocolates” . . . and a “box of chocolates” is #1 in Idaho, Kansas, and South Carolina.

A separate study looked at our favorite things to get in a box of chocolate.  The top three are caramel . . . chocolate-covered nuts . . . and chocolate-covered toffee.  (Zippia / YouGov)  (Here’s a map of all 50 states.)

Zodiac Sign Dating

Another survey was done asking people to rank zodiac signs from least-datable to who they are most likely to date.

I don’t put much stock in this astrology stuff but I gotta say, I’m pretty happy I’m the #2 most dateable sign according to this!
– Spurger.

1.  Gemini.  42% of people who believe in astrology wouldn’t date one. 

(Geminis were also named the worst sign to date in a Twitter poll a few months ago.)

2.  Cancer, 37%.

3.  Taurus, 36%.

4.  Aries, 34%.

5.  Leo, 31%.

6.  Virgo, 28%.

7.  Scorpio, 24%.

8.  Libra, 22%.

9.  Sagittarius, 17%.

10.  Capricorn, 16%.

11.  Aquarius, 10%.

12.  Pisces, 7%.  So they’re most most-datable.

Deer – In The Air Tonight

After playing this song today, I was reminded of this clumsy (yet talented) deer. So I had to re-visit this video, set to “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. The audio is lined up so the deer trips on the slide and ends up doing the best drum breakdown ever.

The best part may be how modestly he walks it off. The deer equivalent to a mic drop?
