These Are the Most Popular Walmart Products in Your State

From video games to beverages, these are what people are buying the most of from coast to coast.

circle

No matter what corner of the U.S. you happen to be in, there's one thing you can count on: There's a Walmart nearby. With 4,756 stores across the nation as of January 2020, the mega-retailer is the go-to shopping destination for millions of Americans. And while the in-store experience may be similar no matter where you are, the most popular products purchased at Walmart in each state are unexpectedly diverse.

That's why, when the company released a list of the top-selling item in each state for 2019, even Walmart spokespeople themselves said "None of these will be what you think." From jasmine rice to video games (and everything in between), these are the most popular Walmart items sold in the state you live in.

Best Life's editors have scoured the internet to bring you the best products out there, and we're hoping you'll love them as much as we do. Full disclosure: we may earn a commission for anything you purchase through links on this page, but that doesn't mean you'll pay more for them (we'd never do that to you!). Pricing and availability are accurate as of the piece's initial publication date, but it's the internet and we can't guarantee that these sweet, sweet deals will last forever, so scoop them up before someone else does!
