When it comes to July 4th meat grilling selection, Minnesota is in the minority.
That's because Minnesota – the home, let's remember, of the Jucy Lucy – is just one of 11 states in the country that has been buying more hot dogs than burgers ahead of July 4th, according to a Walmart study.
Minnesota is in a little cluster of midwestern states that apparently prefers a good frank to a juicy burger, joining South Dakota, Nebraska and Illinois.
The state conforms to the norm with all the other major 4th July choices however, preferring ketchup to mustard atop their hot dog/burger (along with every other state), and preferring potato salad as their chosen side over coleslaw.
Here are the findings from Walmart.
Americans will spend big on their July 4th celebrations, with WalletHub saying that around two-thirds of them will attend July 4th picnics and about $7.15 billion will be spent on food.
An estimated 150 million hot dogs are expected to be consumed on July 4th weekend, while spending on beer is expected to top $1 billion, with July 4th the biggest beer-drinking holiday.
