The term "junk food" is part of American life — it encompasses a large variety of foods, drinks and treats. Just about anyone you ask will have a favorite junk food they keep stashed in the house — or that they keep away from their home, to thwart temptation.

Taking a look at Google Trends, we have formulated a list of the most popular junk foods by state.

This list offers quite the variety, and trends do change quickly, depending on what part of America you are in.

There are a couple of high performers to note, including Sour Patch Kids, which is the country's favorite junk food snack, as it's the choice candy in 7 different states. Animal Crackers and Kit Kat bars are a favorite in 5 states.

The front offices at Reese's might be upset to see they're the favorite junk food in only one state, Ohio. The same goes for the folks over at Oreo, as the cookie that seemingly everyone loves only pulled top dog status in Iowa.
