Which State in the US Loves Bacon the Most?

Some American states take 'bringing home the bacon' more literally than others.

Thanks to a partnership between blog Estately — known for its interactive weed map — and home goods retailer Ginny's, the most bacon-obsessed states in the great American nation have been exposed.

While bacon is trendy, Instagram is trendier. That's why Estately and Ginny's used the photo app to retrieve their data.

"Instagram is one tool that we use to keep track of trending food topics," Ginny's marketing manager Cailey Pickett told the Daily Dot. "After exploring the hashtag #bacon we thought it would be really neat to dive deeper into this data to see what stories we might be able to uncover."

Upon clicking a state, users of the interactive map will see that state's average bacon consumption compared to the national average. A bacon-related fact about that state will also appear.
