Google reveals Pennsylvania's most-searched Super Bowl recipe

New Jersey's football fans and those in the Keystone State have similar tastes

Can you guess Pennsylvania's most popular Super Bowl snack? Hint: It's two-parts cream cheese, one part shredded chicken and all parts delicious.

Google Trends crunched the numbers and released a map of the most-searched Super Bowl recipes just in time for Sunday's big game.

Did you get it? Pennsylvania's most-searched recipe is Buffalo Chicken Dip according to Google's infographic, while buffalo wings rank top in New Jersey. Chili was Delaware's No. 1 Super Bowl recipe search.

The Keystone State is in line with states like Illinois and Massachusetts who also favored the savory dip.

But others had much stranger palettes – take Maine, whose residents like to chow down on a spinach caesar salad while people in Maryland can't get enough chicken noodle soup.

Another map from the search engine shows people in Pennsylvania and New Jersey favor an ale (much like the rest of the country), rather than an Indiana Pale Ale or Porter.

More data shows that both Pennsylvanians and New Jerseyans searched the New England Patriots more than the Atlanta Falcons. I guess Sunday will reveal if all that research was worth the effort.
