Of all the things that you can buy at Walmart, we're shocked that this is our favorite.

Oh Walmart. The one place where you can purchase groceries, clothes, bug repellent, lawn furniture and cat litter... all while having your tires rotated. It truly is the mecca of convenience (and people watching). You can buy anything there. This is why I was so interested to see what the most popular item sold on Walmart's website is for the state of Louisiana.

Walmart recently revealed which items were the top sellers in each state in 2017 at Walmart.com.

Surely in the state of Louisiana, we'd be all about industrial-sized pots for crawfish, beads, and lawn chairs for Mardi Gras parades and tailgates. Heck, I'd even go out on a limb and say we are fans of Walmart gift cards. However, we chose a different item to order by the truckload.

It's Root Beer Extract.

What do you even use this for? My initial reaction is that we are all making candy with this stuff or brewing our own root beer. I mean, what else do you use it for?
