There are Walmart stores all over America and Utah is no exception. Dotting the beehive state are 41 Supercenters with everything from groceries, paint, garden supplies, car parts and much more. The giant retailer sells 75 million different products. What is the most popular item sold?
The top-selling product at Walmart is, surprisingly, bananas! In a recent interview, McMillon said that Walmart sells "billions of bananas" (via Bloomberg). Bananas have been Walmart's top seller for years.
America apparently loves bananas. It doesn’t surprise me. Whenever I’m walking through the produce section, there is an employee putting out more of those potassium packed fruit.
Walmart also sells a lot online, and they track what each location orders most. I would assume every state would order similar things, but what each state buys are different. This is a site that lists the most bought item for each of the 50 states.
Texas most often buys wedding invitations. Tennessee is looking for traffic cones. South Carolina is interested in garage door openers.
What is Utah purchasing online from Walmart? I was hoping it was something like bike racks or sleeping bags. It is chocolate. I should have known it would be all about the sugar. Here in Utah we love a good dessert. Just look at all the places dedicated to treats.
I guess being known for chocolate isn’t all bad. At least we aren’t like our neighbors to the south. In Nevada the most purchased item is canned pumpkin, gross. Apparently, they are eating pumpkin pie all year long and not just on Thanksgiving.
