This CANNOT Be Michigan’s Most Popular Condiment, Can It?
The folks at Thrillist don't know us. They claim we like all sorts of things we don't, and I for one, won't stand for it anymore.
First of all, let me say they that Thrillist really widened the idea of what is a condiment. Spaghetti Sauce? That's like saying Coconut Oil is a condiment.
Wait. What's that? Nature's Way Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is #1 in Hawaii, Minnesota, Oregon, Alaska, and Colorado? That's insane. What is happening?
According to the article, they make it clear that it's not necessarily the most-used condiment in each state. More like the one that's currently TRENDING the most. And they used a pretty loose definition of what a "condiment" is. So things like peanut butter and alfredo sauce count.
For you traditionalists, yellow mustard is #1 in three states: Delaware, Missouri, and Tennessee, and ketchup topped the list in its home state of Pennsylvania.
I'm willing to believe that Alfredo Sauce is a condiment, but until I dip my french fries in it, I'm NOT okay with this. I'll get back to you.
