The Top Comfort Foods Per State


Let’s face it, we all have some kind of food that brings us back to childhood, or makes us feel better when we’re eating it. Such comfort foods can bring a lot of temporary joy, but where you live may play a role in which foods you seek out for that comfort.

  • As we told you, Wallethub just came out with their list of the “Fattest” states in the U.S.
  • As part of their report, they also determined the most popular comfort foods by state, and many of them are way up there on the calorie scale.
  • For example, in Kentucky, the Kentucky Hot Brown is the most popular comfort food, at 951 calories per serving.
  • While in Nevada, hotel buffets are the top choice, with at least 1,000 calories per serving.
  • It’s probably not shocking to find out that the Philly Cheese Steak is the top comfort food in Pennsylvania, at a whopping 1,146 calories per serving.
  • And in Wisconsin, folks reach for fried cheese curds at 1,140 calories per serving.

But not all popular comfort foods are high in calories.

  • While those in Massachusetts find comfort in clam chowder, at only 201 calories a serving.
  • And those in Utah love something called funeral potatoes, at 240 calories a serving.
