What does North Carolina do better than any other state? And what are we the worst at?

Thrillist.com recently released a list of what every U.S. state is best at. The Tar Heel state ranks No. 1 when it comes to production of sweet potatoes, according to the list.

“North Carolina’s biggest exports are sweet potatoes, hogs, and college basketball teams that make people want to punch them in the face,” according to the blog.

The data was based on information provided by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Some of the other states had unusual listings. Montana has the longest cat lifespans, Virginia has the most vanity license plates and Tennessee has the largest walleye ever caught.

The same website released a list in December tracking what every U.S. state does the worst. In that list, education was listed for North Carolina.
