The Green Giant brand polled over 5,000 Americans for its annual ‘Favorite Veggie’ open-ended survey to determine consumers’ favorite vegetables timed to National Eat Your Vegetables Day (June 17).

Key survey findings include:

Broccoli Takes the Crown (Again): Broccoli is the favorite vegetable in 29 states. Runners up (in order of popularity) are corn, carrots, potatoes and asparagus.

Flipped on Favorites: More than half of the states (54%) swapped their favorite vegetable pick in 2022 including Iowa – which no longer chose corn as the favorite, but instead selected broccoli this year.

Corn Continues to Grow: Despite Iowa’s rebuff of corn, 11 states selected corn as their favorite veggie in 2022. A 37% increase in popularity from 2021.

Kids Crave Veggies: Contrary to popular belief, more than two thirds of parents surveyed (68%) say their kids enjoy eating vegetables.

Survey Data Compilation: 5,321 American consumers ages 18-94 agreed to take an online survey naming their favorite vegetable. The survey was conducted from 4/27/22 through 5/9/2022 and the users were recruited by a Suzy poll.
