Top Game Day Foods by State

All across the country people are planning what to eat for the Super Bowl…. and Google Trends just released the top-searched foods in every state leading up to the big game.

Scroll down to see what people in your state are planning to eat on Sunday. We were surprised by a few (CA and CT: cupcakes?), but happy to see favorites like buffalo wings and chili holding their own. Scroll through to see which recipe your state most wants to make this weekend, and which recipe was Googled by the most states.

We have shared our recipes where appropriate (sorry, no cakepops for us).

If you are looking to serve something out of the ordinary, check our recipe picks for game day food. Why not BBQ Pulled Wild Boar Sliders? Or a Smoked Duck Banh Mi in place of a foot-long sandwich?  You can elevate the game with great food.
