The Most Hated Food in Each State is Probably Not What You'd Expect


Nothing unites us all like common dislikes, or that's what the dating app Hater is betting on. Every so often, they like to release their own maps to highlight the overall opinion of a state. And this particular map shows every hated food item in the U.S. It's hilarious, but mostly because it's true. Looking at you, New Jersey. What's so wrong with wine bought at a gas station? Pennsylvanians wish they could buy wine at a gas station! And Tennessee, you dislike foraged food?! What about all those morel mushrooms. We digress.

Without further ado, check out the most hated foods in each state. Did your state get it right, or do you hate something even more than the last bite of a hot dog, like Missouri?

So, is your state accurate? It's not too surprising to see that expensive foods both landed on the list, looking at both South Dakota and New Hampshire. But we have to ask ourselves, New Mexico, do you really dislike chicken nuggets?

It makes perfect sense that a Texan would frown upon a well-done steak. We've all been there. And we proudly stand with Montana. Pumpkin Spice anything and everything. Unfortunately, this is their worst season yet, then as Pumpkin Spice keeps coming back earlier and earlier each year.
