For football fans, the countdown to February 13 has been on for a few weeks. It’s the finality of the season, one team will go home the winners, the other would have come oh-so close. For other people, Super Bowl Sunday is all about the snacks: chicken wings, veggie tray and, perhaps the best on the food spread, the dips! Ever wonder which dips are the most popular? Well, wonder no more – we’ve got a list of the most popular in each state.
The Food Network was curious, like we are, which dips are favorited in each state. Working with Google Search, the results were “an array of dips that spread across the spectrum of taste.” Google looked at search data over the past week to pull the most popular dips in each state. And, just like the big game, there’s one dip that came out the winner.
Coming out on top overall as the best dip in the US is Buffalo chicken dip, which is a favorite in Tennessee, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Dakota, North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Maine, Kentucky, Kansas, Iowa, Idaho, Washington, D.C., Delaware, and Arizona. That’s 18 states plus two other states who search for variations of the Buffalo chicken dip, including “buffalo cauliflower dip” and “buffalo dip.”
Another favorite dip is the 7-layer dip, which is a little like a taco but in dip form. It’s the top dip in Massachusetts, Hawaii, and Alaska, but for Washington, their favorite is the Greek layer dip. Cheesy dips are a favorite in several states, too. Minnesota likes “cheddar cheese dip,” people in Florida love their “cream cheese dip,” and Michigan likes their “cheese dip.”
We can’t forget about meaty cheese, though. Maryland likes “cheesy hamburger dip” and “chili cheese dip” is Utah’s top dip. Other favorites were spicy dips like “green chili dip” a favorite in Colorado, and “jalapeno popper dip,” which is loved by Illinois and California.
Perhaps the most surprising dip to make a favorite in at least one state is the “chocolate chip cookie dip” which is what Oklahoma is all about. To be fair though, we’re not sure there is a dip that isn’t delicious. So it’s a win-win always for these snacks.
