It’s not a surprise that burgers are incredibly popular with Americans – over 20-billion are consumed every year and that translates into 60 patties per person. One question that remains is which state has the highest rank when it comes to burger consumption. Recipe website Pantry & Larder has compiled the data regarding burgers and here’s what they found:
- Oregon was #1 with 79 burgers per year per person
- Arizona and Utah came in second and third, respectively, at 77 and 75 burgers per person
- Rounding out the top five: Utah, New Mexico and Michigan
As far as who’s eating the fewest burgers…folks in Massachusetts enjoy 42 burgers per person, per year…New Yorkers are snarfing just 41 per year…and coming in dead last? Washington, D.C. with 36 burgers.
