We love our food here in Michigan, and apparently Pinterest keeps tabs on every picture we keep in the food category. One survey was done that kept tabs on what people were saving in every state and Michigan's favorite food came as a total shock. I would have guessed tacos or pizza...but no bake cookies?

  • Alabama – Pound Cake
  • Alaska – Survival Bread
  • Arizona – Chiles
  • Arkansas – Coca-Cola (While that in itself isn’t a recipe, if you search for it on Pinterest, you’ll find numerous ways to use the drink.)
  • California – Figs
  • Colorado – Carnitas
  • Connecticut – Cannoli
  • Delaware – Crabs
  • Florida – Cake Toppers (We’re guessing this isn’t really a food item, but close enough.)
  • Georgia – Chicken Wings
  • Hawaii – Matcha
  • Idaho – Canning (Surprise! Not potatoes. Unless they’re canning potatoes…)
  • Illinois – Wild Rice Soup
  • Indiana – Noodle Casserole
  • Iowa – Chex Mix
  • Kansas – Chicken Enchiladas
  • Kentucky – Peanut Butter Fudge
  • Louisiana – Shrimp Pasta
  • Maine – Doughnuts (Hopefully lobster-free…)
  • Maryland – Scallops
  • Massachusetts – Butternut Squash
  • Michigan – No Bake Cookies
  • Minnesota – Broccoli Salad
  • Mississippi – Chicken Spaghetti (Huh? Here’s some recipes.)
  • Missouri – Cheesecake Dip
  • Montana – Scones
  • Nebraska – Sloppy Joes
  • Nevada – Cake Pops
  • New Hampshire – Martinis (Drinks more than food? We like how you party, New Hampshire!)
  • New Jersey – Sangria (You too, Jersey!)
  • New Mexico – Empanadas
  • New York – Falafel
  • North Carolina – Banana Pudding
  • North Dakota – Oatmeal Bars
  • Ohio – Peanut Butter Brownies
  • Oklahoma – Taco Soup
  • Oregon – Curry
  • Pennsylvania – Peach Schnapps (You can party with us too, Pennsylvania!)
  • Rhode Island – Flower Cupcakes (Oddly specific, so here’s some gorgeous recipes.)
  • South Carolina – Red Velvet Cupcakes
  • South Dakota – Tater Tots
  • Tennessee – Cornbread
  • Texas – Stuffed Avocado
  • Utah – Coconut Chicken
  • Vermont – Beets
  • Virginia – Smoothie Bowls (Way to make us dessert-eating states feel bad about ourselves, Virginia…)
  • Washington – Thai Chicken
  • West Virginia – Pumpkin Desserts
  • Wisconsin – Puppy Chow (Guessing it’s the human kind, not food for your furry friend).
  • Wyoming – Energy Bites

Given the date of this survey and the time of the year, it could have changed. It still surprises me that our most saved food is one of the most unsatisfying desserts ever.
