America is more than ready to chow down on Super Bowl Sunday! Google Trends recently released its yearly list of the most Googled recipes ahead of the big game, which will take place on February 3, and some of the findings are pretty surprising.

For starters, though savory dishes typically come to mind on game day, it appears a good portion of America is anticipating a need for something sugary while watching the New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams. In fact, different varieties of sweet treats reigned supreme in 11 states. While residents of Arizona and Florida are curious about “cake,” those living in Louisiana and South Dakota want “cupcakes.”

Delawareans got very specific with their searches for “chocolate peanut butter cake,” while Oregonians had “banana bread” on the brain.

However, “dip” was still the most searched Super Bowl food overall, with residents in 12 states looking for recipes for the popular chip accompaniment. For those in Connecticut and Kansas it was all about “Buffalo chicken dip,” while those who call Rhode Island home are partial to “7-layer dip.”

As far as weird queries are concerned, Mississippi residents may have taken the cake with their quest for “granola bars,” which aren’t exactly known for being a game day staple. Similarly, Iowans were curious about “Irish stew,” while those who live in Maine are preparing to make “paella.”
