North Dakota’s Top Selling Item from Walmart.com Makes No Sense
Walmart released a map detailing the top purchases that are made in each state on their website.
It should be noted that the map did not necessarily list the top selling item but rather a top selling item.
As stated on their map, "to create the product map, we took a look at the top 25 most popular items purchased at Walmart.com and identified interesting top sellers."
One of the top items sold to customers in North Dakota was certainly interesting. One of the top sellers for Walmart.com in North Dakota is 'watermelon flavored gum.'
Gum is a fairly bizarre item to purchase online. There are tons of convenience, drug, and grocery stores that sell gum and it's likely North Dakotans frequent these stores all the time. To take the time out to purchase gum from Walmart.com rather than just grab some while you're out is a bit unusual.
The item for South Dakota may be even weirder. There's was orange juice. Who purchases orange juice on the internet?
Montana's item made sense. Their residents apparently are big fans of the Madden video games. But purchasing video games online, especially by pre-ordering them makes plenty of sense.
In Minnesota, they purchased a lot of Flaming Hot Cheetos from Walmart.com
You can check out the full map, which we admit is pretty entertaining here.
