Is South Carolina a Burger or Hot Dog State?

What are we cooking out this 4th of July?   Walmart has tracked their sales over the past four weeks to figure out what people are buying for their cookouts.    Here's what they found:

         1.  Hamburgers are still the king, including here in South Carolina.   Hot dogs are only more popular than hamburgers in 11 states - North Carolina, Maine, Vermont, West Virginia, Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Alaska, and Hawaii. 

         2.  There's not a single state where mustard outsells ketchup.

         3.  Which side dish are you serving with your hot dogs?   Potato Salad beats out coleslaw here in the Palmetto State.    There are only 14 states where coleslaw is a more popular side dish than potato salad.    Coleslaw is a favorite in North Carolina in Ohio.    Alaska, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia are the other coleslaw states.
