Plot twist: not everybody likes bacon. Which is fine because that leaves more bacon for the rest of us. Recently, Ginny’s, an online and print catalog (and we’re assuming bacon lovers), decided to rank which states like bacon more than others.
In order to create their state-by-state ranking, Ginny’s did Instagram searches for #bacon, comparing it to other food-related posts (#breakfast, #food, etc.). They compared the two numbers, creating bacon-to-food ratios for each state and ranking them relative to each other. Scientific? Not really. Delicious? Yes.
The best state is Nebraska. Great job, Nebraska. The worst state? Hawaii, at 48% below the national average. Hawaii: sun, surf, and tons of leftover bacon.
