Are you a stuffing fan? Or are you more of a mashed potato and gravy guru?

There were several notable findings including the fact that 47 out of the 50 states prefer carby and cheesy goodness for their sides. Notably, only three states opted for vegetables as their go-to, with Maine’s numero uno being a side salad (ok, what’s THAT about?).

The Mid-West is all about the green bean casserole, the South loves their mac and cheese and ten states claim mashed potatoes as their fave side.

Perhaps the most interesting? Only one state believes the most iconic side, cranberry sauce, is the living end: New Hampshire.
