Walmart Revealed The Most Popular Item In All 50 States, And Some Of Them Are Pretty Weird

There's no prize for guessing the most popular items on last year: water bottles, paper towels and toilet paper always claim the top spots.

But when you dig into the data to find each state's favorite item, things just get weird. Walmart revealed which item each state is obsessed with, and it's raising a lot of questions about our neighbors.

See which item your state can't get enough of:

Alabama - Crayons

Recycle Nation

School supplies was a running theme on the list, and snagged the top spot in three states.

Alaska - RV and Marine Antifreeze

Team RV

So Alaskans love the great outdoors - go figure.

Arizona - L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls

Best Buy

We think Arizonans left their Christmas shopping a little late this year.

Arkansas - Chocolate


Chocolate is a big seller around Valentine's Day, but in Arkansas the sweet tooth rules year-round.

California - Protein Powder

Eat This, Not That

A must-have if you're going to hit Muscle Beach.

Colorado - Peanut M&Ms

Mental Floss

The country is obsessed with these sweet treats, but Colorado's hooked on the peanut variety.

Connecticut - Ghost in the Shell on DVD

Paramount Pictures

Well, this movie had to be a hit somewhere.

Delaware - Spiced Jelly Candy

Rayge Candy

One word: blech!

Florida - Sparkling Cider

Unoriginal Mom

You'd think Floridians would pick orange juice.

Georgia - Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair

Toys R Us

Seems everyone in the state is obsessed with this handy toddler seat.

Hawaii - Barbie Farmer Doll


It figures Barbie as a farmer would be a hit...but we expected somewhere with more farms.

Idaho - My Little Pony Mini-Collection


If your kids ask for it, you've got to get it.

Illinois - Erasers

Thrifty Fun

Another school supply item that took the top spot. We all make mistakes sometimes, Illinois.

Indiana - Instant Coffee

Bali Post

Are you folks in Indianapolis having a hard time waking up?

Iowa - Water-softening Crystals

Mr. Water Geek

Something we all need once in a while.

Kansas - Ozark Trail Tumblers

Egghead Forum

Folks in Kansas like to get outside, but just to enjoy a drink or two.

Kentucky - 4x6 Photo Prints


People still print out photos?

Louisiana - Root Beer Extract

Lick My Spoon

It seems folks in Louisiana would rather make their own root beer. To each their own, I guess.

Maine - Brownies

Inspired Taste

Who can blame them?

Maryland - Glue Sticks

Hip 2 Save

Another case of thrifty parents ordering their school supplies online. In my opinion, the liquid glue tastes much better.

Massachusetts - Refrigerators

Appliance Canada

A weird appliance to buy online, but we won't judge.

Michigan - Lavender-scented Cleaning Products

Seventh Generation

Ooh la la!

A tasty yet healthy choice.

Missouri - Life Savers

Candy Warehouse

They're a hole lot of fun.

Montana - Madden NFL Video Games

EA Sports

There's only one each year, but apparently in Montana people can't be bothered to drive out to the store for their copy.

Nebraska - Pressed Makeup Powder

Makeup Source

Pretty smart to order your brand online, as long as it doesn't get shaken up in the mail.

Nevada - Dog Treats


Dog and cat foods were popular entries on the list.
