Zippia researched 45 different snacks and analyzed Google Trends to compile its list.

According to Zippia, the major findings were:

  • Sweet wins over salty: 29 states’ favorite snack is sweet.
  • 5 States selected Oreos as its favorite.
  • All the “itos” chips (Fritos, Doritos, and Cheetos) made the map.
  • Butterfingers, Hi-Chews, MMs’s, Reese’s, and Twizzlers didn't make the list
