Green Giant recently announced that, according to their findings, broccoli remains America's favorite vegetable. The brand polled over 5,000 Americans in an open-ended survey timed to National Eat Your Vegetables Day, which is Monday, June 17.
This year, even more states favored broccoli than in 2018. Additional survey findings included:
- For the second year in a row, broccoli holds the number one spot as America's favorite vegetable with 39 states choosing it as the favorite.
- Cauliflower (Montana) and asparagus (Alaska) appeared on the map this year as state favorites for the first time.
- Only one state voted the potato as its favorite vegetable in 2019 (Arkansas), compared to five states that chose it in 2018.
- Cucumber is noticeably absent from the list this year. Last year it was the state favorite of New Mexico and Louisiana.
The survey was conducted from April 26, 2019 - May 10, 2019.
