(WAFF) -

Every state is known for something, but there are some things you may not know about the states that make up the U.S.

Florida is known for the whitest beaches. Idaho is known for its mass growth of potatoes. Alabama is known for the first use of the 911 system. Mississippi is known for its high percentage of obesity.

Time Magazine recently released its Answers Issue and discovered the hidden things that the 50 states are not popularly known for from everything to the largest supplier of milk to the most deaths due to lightning, and even the state with the most panda bears.

You might be surprised what your state is known for.
