Google Trends released the data of most searched food in every U.S. state ahead of the Super Bowl LV. and the Lebanese diary Labneh was on the menu for Nebraskans.

In some states, like Texas, desserts were the most-searched-for recipes. Other states focused on main dishes, like tacos, or side dishes or appetizers.

In the midwestern state of Nebraska, people took to the internet to search for the popular savory Lebanese spread, Labneh!

“Nebraska must have a lot of Lebanese or it’s the first state to discover labneh,” tweeted Beirut-based multimedia engineer, Ronny Karam.

Funny enough, there’s a village in Nebraska called Lebanon. In fact, there are 47 places called Lebanon in America in addition to the many streets named after Beirut.
