SALT LAKE CITY — More than 20 billion hamburgers are consumed every year by Americans, according to a new study by Pantry and Larder. The study also states that Utahns eat the third most hamburgers in the country.

Only residents in Oregon and Arizona eat more hamburgers, according to the food website. Those in Oregon eat roughly 78 hamburgers a year, Arizona is a close second with 77 sandwiches consumed per person a year. 

Utahns and hamburgers

Utah residents eat 75 hamburgers per year, according to the study. Additionally, the study also reported that Utah had nine hamburger restaurants per 100,000 residents.

Hamburgers were less popular in Washington, D.C. In the nation’s capital, the meat sandwich is eaten only 36 times a year person. The study says Washington, D.C. and New York are the first places, a person would least likely have a hamburger. It says other food options, such as sushi, are a contributing factor to that.  

The study also found that cheese was the most popular topping for 70% of Americans. Furthermore, 48% of Americans said they would put pickles on a hamburger.
