Which Thanksgiving Side Dish State Do You Live In?
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, FiveThirtyEight recently conducted a survey asking Americans, "Who eats what where?" Some of the results came as no surprise. 82% of respondents said that they had turkey as their main course while chicken, pork, and roast beef came in distance seconds.
Pumpkin pie was popular among all regions, but other flavors are enjoyed disproportionately. New England and the Middle Atlantic favors apple pie, various Southern states have their hearts set on pecan and sweet potato pie, and the Midwest and West like their cherry pie, according to the results.
In terms of side dishes, however, things were even less uniform. Check out the most popular responses in each region below. This information is based on the experiences of about 1,058 participants, with 931 responding to the side dish question (America's population is over 320 million).
