Some Like it Hot! This is South Dakota’s Favorite Hot Sauce
We all know it's hot outside right now, but, come to find out, it's also hot inside most homes in America at the moment too.
And it's not because they don't have a functioning air conditioner at this time, and God help you this week if you don't!
The reason it's so hot in homes in America is that most Americans love to put hot sauce on their food. It just so happens to be one of the nation's favorite condiments.
Instacart conducted a survey a while back to help determine the popularity of the condiment hot sauce across the country. The study was done surrounding National Hot Sauce Day which happens to fall each year on January 22nd.
The data revealed that some, okay, a lot of us Americans like it hot!
According to FoxBusiness, Instacart purchase data from December 2020 through November 2021 shows that a whopping 444,854 gallons of hot sauce were purchased by Americans.
Nearly three-quarters of the respondents surveyed claim to use hot sauce on their food.
Personally, I know someone who likes to sprinkle a little dash of hot sauce on his pancakes. I mean can it get any grosser than that?
So, what's our favorite hot sauce?
It's really not a heated debate here in the Midwest. Instacart data shows that most Midwesterners prefer Frank's RedHot.
The survey showed that a great majority of us South Dakotans prefer to spice up our meals with Frank's RedHot sauce.
Huy Fong’s Sriracha is the most purchased hot sauce across the nation. 31 states across the country say they prefer Huy Fong's to any other hot sauce.
But get this, our friends up in North Dakota really like it hot!
Instacart's survey found that North Dakota is the spiciest state in the nation. They love putting hot sauce on their meals up there in the Peace Garden State.
Probably because it's so damn cold up there most of the year. North Dakotans have to do everything they possibly can to stay warm right?
