America’s Super Bowl game day favorites

Baked Buffalo WingsSlow Cooker Chili IISimple Turkey ChiliMexican Potato Nachos, the world’s largest digital food site with more than 1 billion visits each year, partnered with Tableau Software to share a state-by-state look at America’s Super Bowl game day favorites, including chili, dips, drinks, sandwiches, snacks and wings.  Using a massive amount of data from nearly 95 million visits, Tableau has created an interactive graphic that can be viewed here. Some interesting findings include:

  •  When it comes to snack recipes, we are a nation divided. Depending on where you are, Americans appear to have a strong preference for Little Smokies recipes, nachos or meatballs as their gameday snack of champions. Note that in both Washington and Colorado, the top snacks recipe is Mexican Potato Nachos. However, in New York/New Jersey, the top snacks recipes is The Best Meatballs.
  • New York stands alone as the only state whose favorite chili recipe is turkey over beef.
  • Two dip recipes stand out as head and shoulders above the rest – the recipe for Seven Layer Taco Dip dominates much of the Western part of the country (including California) and the Northeast and Southeastern states have a preference for Buffalo Chicken Dip.
  • The one thing all Americans agree on is wings. The recipes for Baked Buffalo Wings is tops in all 50 states.

This visualization is a fun way to see the flavor and food preferences across the state ahead of the big game.
