The Best Way to Fix a Broken Heart in Iowa Might Also Destroy It
So you've been dumped. You are sad...
Your heart is broken...
Life, as you knew, is over... over!
Obviously, that's not the case as people break up every day. But, when it happens to you, you're likely going to go out and look for a way to cope. For many, that means you'll be burying yourself in a tasty snack or, comfort food, of some kind.
Have you ever wondered what the entire state of Iowa would pick as its comfort food? Does the stereotypical Midwestern in you scream "Busch Light" or, "some sort of casserole"? Well, I'll give you a clue, it's not booze.
So, according to a USA Rx study, is it a salty snack? Chips, maybe fries? Popcorn? Ooh, or heavily salted peanuts?
Not any of those salty options either.
So what is our go-to heartbreak snack?
The always delicious grilled cheese. Possibly, depending on how you make it, the most unhealthy breakup food option the survey had.
For example, Minnesota and Illinois' top breakup comfort food was popcorn. Missouri and Wisconsin went with candy and Nebraska with burgers (this would 100% be what I'd reach for).
What surprises me most about this study, only two states said pizza was their go-to breakup dish of choice. Everyone loves pizza.
Maybe the reason they split from their lover in the first place was that they didn't like pineapple on their pizza. Just a thought. What a monster.
