This Map Shows Every State’s Favorite Holiday Treat

One of the best things about the holidays has to be the sweet treats. Cookies, candy and various baked goods are all good reasons to get into the holiday spirit. While some swear by a classic chocolate chip cookie, others are more inclined to go for a rich yule log cake. You actually can’t go wrong when it comes to a holiday dessert. Like with many other types of food in the U.S., people’s favorites vary from state to state. Career builder site Zippia used Google search data to create a map of people’s favorite holiday treats by state. Perhaps unsurprisingly, cheesecake was a big favorite with New Yorkers while Missouri was the only state to specify “vegan” Christmas cookies. Take a look at the map to see which sweet treat reigns supreme in your state.
