INDIANAPOLIS — As you are well aware, calories don't count on Thanksgiving, but what is your favorite side dish from the endless options?

Zippia used data from Google Trends to determine each state's most popular Thanksgiving side dish.

Unsurprisingly, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese led the way, with 10 and 7 states choosing those as their favorites, respectively. 

Indiana happened to be the only state opting for deviled eggs above all other side dishes.

Another unusual discovery? Maine residents prefer the healthy option of a side salad as opposed to the rest of the carb-heavy choices.
