Furthermore, the data indicates that while there are some Turkey Day staples, such as cornbread dressing/stuffing, which reigned supreme in 14 states, regional differences also exist. For example, while the most popular search in Alaska, Connecticut, Maryland and Montana was cranberry sauce, folks in Wisconsin are more interested in cranberry salad.

Though most of the searches were fairly standard, there were a handful of outliers in the bunch. Washington D.C. residents, for example, have cookies on the brain, while people living in Delaware are searching for “keto brisket.” Who knew the trendy diet was so popular in the Diamond State?
