Wisconsinites top Google searches included Beanie Babies, menthol cigarettes

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - No two states are alike -- and that's especially true in seeing what people search for when they're on the Internet.  

The Seattle-based home search Web site Estately ran hundreds of search queries through Google Trends to identify the words, phrases, and questions that folks in each state were searching for, more than any other.  

Here are the Wisconsin terms that came up most often -- Beanie Babies, Green Party, log rolling, menthol cigarettes, Mike's Hard Lemonade, Oprah's Book Club, and survival shelter.

Other states had a wide range of favorites. Big Foot was one of the top searches in Idaho, along with caramel corn, unicorns, and potato. Jazzercise and shuffleboard were Nebraska's favorites.  

Only one entry was listed in each of two states -- Elvis Presley in Tennessee, and Nickelback in South Dakota.
