America is massive, but you already know that. What you may not have grasped yet though is that there’s some really weird eating patterns across the nation.
The brilliant information designers over at FastCodeDesign put together a map of the weirdest eating patterns for every state in the USA. The below image is just an overlay of the nation’s weirdest eating patterns, but if you really want to dive in to the data and see what makes your state so weird then head over to FastCodeDesign for the interactive map.
FastCodeDesign explains a bit about the methodology that went in to the making of this map:
Co.Design teamed up with food industry analytics firm Food Genius to mine its database of 88,000 menus and 59 million menu items and build this map of the each state’s true crown jewel food. What you’re looking at isn’t the most popular food by state. It’s the food that most distinguishes them from the rest of the pack.
I gotta say, as a born and raised Floridian, there’s not a damn thing peculiar about eating grouper. They’re native to the land and are delicious as hell. They’re also prevalent throughout the other Gulf of Mexico states, so I don’t know why Florida got pigeon holed as the grouper state…
If you see anything similar to this that you think would be a good fit to be published here on BroBible, go follow me on Twitter HERE and hit me up with the links, and if I deem it not to suck ass I’ll likely post it.
