这些 pie results are all over the place.
到那个时刻 感恩, everyone should be able to agree that pie, of some kind, is a welcome addition to the table. 当然, there are a lot of different types of pies, and not all are created equal, so figuring out which pie to serve might be a problem.
In an effort to solve this conundrum, Instagram attempted to determine the most popular Thanksgiving pie by state, but the outcome may not be what people expect. To tally the results, Instagram ranked each state’s top pie by collecting data on which were mentioned most frequently in users’ feeds and stories throughout the month of Nov. 2020, per a post that appeared on Instagram’s Facebook 页.
According to Instagram, pumpkin pies are only the most popular pie choice in California, Nevada and Arizona. 与此同时, blueberry pie (traditionally, a summer pie) is popular in New Jersey, 俄克拉荷马州, 缅因州, 阿拉斯加州, New York and Utah.
Pecan Pie, another Thanksgiving staple, is popular in South Carolina, 佛罗里达, 阿拉巴马州, 德州, Arizona and Indiana. But strawberry pie is reportedly popular in South Dakota, 爱达荷州, Kentucky and Hawaii.
And cranberry pie? 好, this is apparently the most popular Thanksgiving pie, with Instagram listing it as the favorite of Kansas, 马萨诸塞州, 爱荷华州, 罗德岛, 佛蒙特, 明尼苏达州, 俄勒冈州, 威斯康星州, 新罕布什尔, 华盛顿州, 伊利诺伊州, New England, Wyoming and Montana.
与此同时, Connecticut is the only state that likes apple pie on Thanksgiving (which might at least make some sense, as apple pie is both a common summer dessert as well as a fall staple).
Commenters on Facebook were a bit confused by the results, 至少可以说.
“I grew up in Rhode Island and I’ve never even heard of a cranberry pie,” 写 one Facebook user. “It was always pumpkin and apple at our family table.”
“是啊, I lived in Pennsylvania my whole life and it’s rare to see a sweet potato pie in a store,” 说过 另一个. “Pumpkin pie, 虽然, you’ll see tons of.”
“There’s no way that a majority of states prefer cranberry pie,” 写 其他人, who joked that perhaps Ocean Spray sponsored the study. “A majority of Americans never even heard of it. Nasty.”
A representative for Instagram did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
At least none of the states are eating key lime pie on Thanksgiving. That’d just be 太 weird.
