Google divides popular searches by state


What kind of pie do you bring to Thanksgiving dinner?

Whether you’re making a family favorite or trying out a new recipe this year, pie is being served in homes across the country on Thursdays. From pumpkin pie to pecan or apple, dessert is a classic Thanksgiving Day staple.

Ahead of Thanksgiving, Google shared with USA TODAY a list of uniquely searched pies in each state. The list shows pies that were overrepresented in a state compared to the country as a whole, and includes searches from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18 — suggesting which desserts were top of mind as Thanksgiving approached.

Pumpkin pie emerged as the recent favorite, along with other seasonal options like pecan pie and sweet potato pie. But there were some surprising, less seasonal results: California and Washington opted for banana cream pie, Colorado opted for lemon meringue pie, and Utah opted for key lime pie.

Buttermilk pie was popular in Georgia and Texas, and peanut butter pie won in Ohio. Hawaii chose Haupia pie, while Indiana and Massachusetts chose cranberry pie.
