Do you agree with what the data says for your state's favorite Thanksgiving side dish? 

Thanksgiving is not all about the turkey, the sides play an important role too. From Jello salad to stuffing, every region has their favorite Thanksgiving side. Zippia decided to break it all down by state and see what sides make the top of the list across the country. 

After analyzing Google searches for November 2019, ZIppia was able to create a map of what each state wants to see on their plate next to the bird this year. It's worth pointing out that 10 states picked mashed potatoes as their number one and only one state picked cranberry sauce. Take a look below to see what each state likes.
