Our country may be more divided now than any other point in almost two centuries, but at least we can all agree on this: Thanksgiving is NOT the time for healthy foods. Well . . . except the people of Montana. They disagree.
General Mills just put out a list of the most popular Thanksgiving food in every state in the country. It’s based on the total searches for recipes from November 1st through Thanksgiving last year.
And pretty much every state’s most common search was for something UNHEALHTY and DELICIOUS. Except Montana . . . their top search was “oven roasted vegetables.” Note to self: Don’t accept an invitation to a Thanksgiving dinner in Montana.
The rest of the results were all over the board. There were lots of states searching for different PIE recipes, including Delaware, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and South Dakota.
California and Virginia both searched for mac-and-cheese recipes . . . buffalo chicken dip was number one in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia . . . and Missouri focused on the day AFTER Thanksgiving by searching for breakfast casserole.
Washington’s most popular is sugar cookies. Is that really a ‘Thanksgiving Food?’ Debatable.
