Walmart.com released a list of what people in every state bought online the most this year—and you’ll never guess which state went all-in on Easy Bake Oven refills.

Walmart is a national go-to for odds and ends, household essentials, toys, gifts, and more, online and in stores, and as 2018 comes to an end, Walmart.com is revealing the top-selling items of 2018. Using sales data from Walmart.com transactions (excluding online grocery) in 2018, the superstore has put together a list of some of the top-selling item in every state and Washington, D.C. Unsurprisingly, there are some major regional differences.

Walmart.com’s list provides items by state (scroll on to see the full list), but there are some items that were popular in multiple states. Online Walmart shoppers in eight states—Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Virginia—bought huge amounts of Crayola crayons, while residents in other states focused on more practical (but much less fun) paper towels. (Paper towels were a top-seller in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.) Residents of Washington were also practically minded: A top-seller for their state was toilet paper.

Other items that were top-sellers in several states include the Instant Pot, Folgers Coffee, and an Ozark Trail 20-Ounce Tumbler, which must be pretty snazzy—it was a top-selling item from Walmart.com in eight states. One of Idaho’s top-selling items, an Easy Bake Oven Refill, is a surprisingly specific but tasty twist; the Gem State was the only one to have this as a top item.
