Map Of The US Shows Us Which Pizza-less States To Avoid

You finally save enough vacation days, gas money and decide it’s about time to take that cross-country road trip. If you’re a lover of pizza, you’ll want to know which states to hit when your cruising through and which states are simply not worth your pizza-lovin’ time.

Estately did some research and created a graphic that shows the amount of pizza shops in every state in the US.

Pizza-State-Map

As you can see, the East Coast is where you wanna be when it comes to pizza with West Virginia taking the #1 title. Surprisingly, there are a few states we wouldn’t think would have so many pizzerias. Really? Ohio?

Nevada probably makes sense since it’s a vacation hotspot.

Our very own California is towards the bottom of that list at #41 with Hawaii in very last place. Wonder how many ham and pineapple spots are actually in the Hawaiian Islands.

Study Shows Grilled Cheese Lovers Get Laid A LOT More Than Normal

Grilled-Cheese-Sex

According to a recent survey, one’s passion for grilled cheese sandwiches correlates to one’s passion in the bedroom. Though hopefully not at the same time.

The Skout survey was taken in honor of the upcoming National Grilled Cheese Day, Sunday April 12. Skout interviewed 4,600 people and discovered 73 percent of adults who love grilled cheese have sex at least once a month compared to the 63 percent who don’t like the sandwich. Also, 32 percent of grilled cheese lovers have sex six times a month versus the 27 percent that don’t.

It’s also noted that, according to the survey, grilled cheese lovers are also more charitable and adventurous. Outside of bed, of course.
