The folks behind the health savings website USARx recently analyzed Google Trends to help determine every U.S. state's go-to break-up food, including dates on some of the best foods to consume when heartbreak sets in.

According to the research, most of America indulges in burgers and candy post-breakup.

In Pennsylvania it's pizza, and in Delaware they go for FRENCH TOAST! Lol.

Do you find this study to be accurate? Personally, I do. I can forget about my heartache much better with a pint of Haagen Dazs chocolate chip.
