There are certain foods that just have a reputation of being hated by most people. used Google Search Trends to find out each state’s most hated food.

Each States Most Hated Food

A Few More Interesting Findings

  • Olives are the most hated overall topping the list in 13 states.
  • Anchovies are a close second most hated food overall with 12 states putting it at the top.
  • For some reason, Connecticut and Massachusetts hate well-done steaks.
  • Surprisingly, no state hates cottage cheese, tuna, liver, tomatoes, or peas the most.
  • No states hate bacon. However, 4 states can’t stand turkey bacon (not the same!).
  • Not everybody loves Sushi, but Maine, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and West Virginia hate it.
  • Montana is all alone in their hatred of carrots.

My big question is WHY does each state hate that one food?
