1. French fries CRUSHED all the other choices. They're #1 in 18 states, including here in Maryland and four of the five biggest: California, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
2. Mashed potatoes are next with seven states: Alaska, Colorado, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin. Fried mashed potato balls are #1 in Texas.
3. Baked potatoes, three states: Idaho, Montana, and Oklahoma. Baked sweet potatoes are #1 in South Carolina. And twice baked potato casserole is first in Arkansas, Kansas, and Mississippi.
