In case you were wondering what America's favorite Christmas Treat was, it's Cheesecake for the win! There's an actual map you can check out on Women's Health Magazine where it shows a trend of our favorite treats by state! Pretty cool to know that my favorite treat, among so many others, won!
From Women's Health Magazine:
As the winter holidays inch closer, and you may be starting to plan your family's annual holiday meal. Whether you and your loved ones celebrate with a Christmas brunch, Hanukkah lunch, or Kwanzaa dinner, all holiday meals have one thing in common: festive desserts. But across the country, people's go-to holiday sweets vary. Job hunting website Zippia used Google Trends to determine American's favorite Christmas dessert by state, and one sweet treat surprisingly stood out more than the rest during the holiday season: cheesecake.
The company selected over 40 classic Christmas desserts and looked at Google Trends to see which ones were searched for at a disproportionately high rate throughout the holidays in each state. Countrywide, the search volume for holiday fudge, peppermint bark, gingerbread desserts, and cheesecake sky rocketed. Though there were plenty of obscure classics in some states as well.
Interesting to see that Georgia is Red Velvet Pound Cake and South Carolina is Fruit Cake!
What's your favorite treat?!
