Recipes are huge on Pinterest. According to Pinterest, food is their number-one category, as there are 15 billion ideas and submissions. That's a whole lot of casseroles.

With 150 million monthly active users, it's no surprise that diving into the data of what people pin to their boards sheds a lot of insight into trends, habits, and interests. That's exactly what Pinterest's "The Foodnited States" of America project shows us: What people of each state are looking for.

What's your state's top pick for food according to this map? Do you think that it's accurate?

Some of the searches are fairly predictable and not too groundbreaking. Delaware, for example, searches for crabs, while Hawaii looks for matcha. Louisiana has an interest in shrimp pasta and Maryland is looking for scallops.

But others are a bit more interesting. Arkansas, for example, looks for Coca-Cola, Wisconsin searches for puppy chow, Alaska morbidly looks up survival recipes, and residents of Florida are into cake toppers.

Here's the complete list.

For more information about what each state looks up, know that Google released the most commonly searched Super Bowl foods in every state earlier this year. And last year it did the same for Thanksgiving recipes.

OK tell us, do you match up to your state?
