Is New Hampshire Your Fast Food Happy Place?
This brand new American survey from NiceRX focuses on fast food and the geographical availability of it in each region of the country. It's both predictable and glorious.
I didn't want to 'show all the cards' with the featured image. Even though Dairy Queen is much beloved by everyone I know without a lactose intolerance problem, DQ is not as readily available in this area of the country as one would hope.
In fact, there is barely ONE Dairy Queen (.9) for every 100,000 Granite Staters. I am grateful that we have one here in Somersworth!
I bet you already know the answer for the most prevalent fast food restaurant in NH.
With an astounding SIXTEEN Dunks per 100,000 NH residents, the map of geographic importance is a deep coffee brown rivaled only by Massachusetts. They have one percent more 'Dunkies' than we do per capita.
My mind has been completely taken over by this map and punching in the different restaurants for each state, but I do wish that it would also include more 'regional' chains.
It always cracks me up to see news stories about an I-N-Out in Colorado that had a 5 hour wait on opening day or the 7 mile lines that built up at the drive thrus when the 'Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Craze' gripped our country.
If you are as obsessed with fast food as I am, THE hotspot in the entire country appears to be New York State with a mind boggling 92 restaurants per 100,000 people.
But we here in New Hampshire should be content with a very strong score of 79.
Now if you will excuse me, I'm off to get a bacon, egg and cheese on a plain bagel and wash it down with a peanut buster parfait.
