Last year, according to a story we did from the website Zippia, Iowa's favorite Thanksgiving side dish was green beans.

While their list for 2022 has not come out yet, the folks at Campbell's have just done their "State of the Sides" report and made a much different choice. In their report, it came down to just two options: mashed potatoes or stuffing.

Not only that, but they claim that 66 percent of us prefer the sides, whatever they might be, to the main dish. It also reports that half of Americans would be satisfied with JUST the sides!

You can read more about their findings here. If you're curious as to how they came up with all this:

Campbell's inaugural "State of the Sides" report was developed through consumer data pulled from a nationwide survey focused on holiday dishes and seasonal topics. From trending flavors to settling the age-old debate about whether Americans favor turkey or sides on their holiday plate, the report is a one-step destination for everything to know about Sides Season 2022.

Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and North Dakota were stuffing states. The rest of us in the midwest (Illinois, Iowa Indiana, Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, and Wisconsin) went with mashed potatoes.
