The American Craft Beer Guide To Most Popular Thanksgiving Side Dishes By State

, The American Craft Beer Guide To Most Popular Thanksgiving Side Dishes By State

Online career site Zippia released a map of peoples’ favorite Thanksgiving sides by state. Their research was hardly rocket science but that doesn’t mean it isn’t stupid fun.

Zippia basically used Google keyword trends to find the favorite of more than 20 traditional side dishes and ranked foods that came in at #1

Key Findings

  • Mashed potatoes are the favorite of 10 states. (How come we’re not surprised?)
  • Right behind mashed potatoes is mac n’ cheese (We would have thought stuffing.)
  • While most states are reaching for the carbs, Maine went with the side salad and we have to ask WTF?
  • The Midwest is all about casseroles, especially of green bean casseroles.
  • In Alabama stuffing isn’t called, it’s called “dressing” down there.
  • Only New Hampshire is a big fan of cranberry sauce, even Massachusetts where most cranberries are farmed, went with stuffing.
  • Biscuits. Rolls. Crescent rolls. Forget the fancy sides, hot bread rules!
  • 47 states went with carbs. Only 3 went with vegetable and we bet those dishes are drenched in fat.
