Of course, popular soda is not the best in the world for you. Energy drinks and fruit juices aren’t the best either. But if you’re a fan of the “moderately everything” spirit, you can sometimes indulge in sweet drinks. Of course, you can choose a classic drink like Coca-Cola or Pepsi, or a local drink like Chia or Faigo Wine.
And if you’re wondering what everyone in your state drinks, you’re in luck! Use Google Trends to find the most popular soft drinks in each state. Based on each state’s “non-alcoholic beverages” topic using Google Trends, we were able to identify the most popular beverages in each state. We then analyzed the popular related topics in this category by state to identify the most searched drinks.
Many of them are soft drinks, but some states prefer drinks such as lemonade and sweet tea. This is the most popular drink in all states. Is your favorite on the list? (Furthermore, check out America’s best and worst sodas!)

Alabama: Dr. Pepper
The established classic Dr. Pepper (yes, it’s a periodless style) has gained a lot of support in Alabama. And Alabama can now claim that soda, but its roots are in Texas. The pharmaceutical company invented cinnamon-flavored soda in 1885 in Waco, Texas. There is also Dr. Pepper named after him.
