What is Colorado’s favorite hot dog topping?

93% of Americans love hot dogs, according to a new study by US Foods. There is some debate, however, about what constitutes the perfect hot dog—and which topping is best.

We know Chicagoans believe ketchup doesn’t belong on hot dogs, so it makes sense that mustard is the most popular topping in Illinois. Nearby Michigan prefers chili, which also makes sense, considering the popular Michigan Coney.

In the South, mustard reigns supreme, except for Florida, which prefers ketchup.

Although not as popular as ketchup or mustard, several states prefer onions or relish as their hot dog condiment of choice. Washington is the only state in the West that likes onions with their hot dogs, and is joined by some states like Minnesota and Indiana. Relish is also popular in the Midwest, as the preferred condiment in states like Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska.

On the East Coast, there’s a variety of popular toppings among all the states. New York, home of the famous New York-style hot dog, loves onions, while New Jersey prefers ketchup. Maine is all about the relish, while neighbors Vermont and New Hampshire like mustard and onions, respectively.
