According to the huge network of travel centers, the Sunshine State is among the four locales that’ve sold more than 300,000 ’nanas within the last year — joining Texas, Georgia and Indiana. We know this because Flying J recently analyzed the 20 most popular food and drink offerings from its 2017 sales data by state.
A few other interesting top purchases across the country? The go-to snacks at Flying J for Minnesotans are egg rolls. Illinois has a thing for mac and cheese (medium-size orders, that is). And Busch Light reigns supreme as far as beer-loving Iowans are concerned.
