Google search data uncovered the most popular pies in every state—from classic apple to regional favorites like possum pie and sour cream raisin pie.
There’s nothing better than a homemade pie. In honor of the beloved dessert, Google compiled a list of the most uniquely searched pies in every state in 2021. The results are even color-coded to differentiate between fruit pies, custard pies, savory pies, chocolate and nut pies and “other” types of pies. (Looking at you, ricotta pie.)

You’ve Got to Check Out Grasshopper Pie
Meanwhile, there were some very interesting pies that won a few states, such as sour cream raisin pie in Nevada, North Dakota and South Dakota, and crawfish pie in Louisiana.
Possum pie was the most searched in Arkansas, and in Colorado and Washington, residents were searching for grasshopper pie. Luckily, the pies aren’t made with the ingredients their names might imply! The mint-flavored grasshopper pie gets its name because of its green color, while possum pie is made with chocolate, pecans and whipped cream.
