Christmas time means a lot of things, ‘quality’ time with family and friends, gifts, great food, and even better treats! I am beyond blessed to be surrounded by incredible bakers, people who turn out some of the finest treats known to mankind. (Yes, I am sucking up, so they hook me up with goodies)

But I don’t want to focus on the good right now, unfortunately. I came across this map:

from Most popular Christmas treat in every state.
from Most popular Christmas treat in every state.

Showing the “most popular Christmas treat in every state”. I’m not going to lie, I originally got worked up, and stormed around, muttering “what in the hell is a Yule Log Cake anyway?” Now that I am a bit more aware of what a yule log cake is (AKA basically any kind of roll-cake.) I am a bit more understanding of the choice, I mean the Uptown Cafés pumpkin spice roll is amazing. BUT, to me, the Yule Log is not the top of the mountain for Christmas goodies.

Some other states are FAR worse off and should be really re-evaluating their life choices if these are truly their favorite treats. I need to start with 2 states that I have lived in, and their “favorite Christmas treat” both make sense, and also make me just want to start slapping people.

First, Washington. According to this research, the state of Washinton’s favorite Christmas treat is? Skittles. Yea, you read that right. Skittles. I had to zoom in on the map to make sure, and then read the article to reconfirm. If you are traveling over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house, and she in Washington, you might want to take a rain check.

Second, Utah. According to this, Utah’s favorite Christmas treats are ….. Jolly Ranchers. I have no words, and now I want to know what flavor Jolly Ranchers in particular. (The absurdity of this list makes it way more fun)

Speaking of the absurd, Missouri’s choice? Vegan Christmas cookies.

Some of the choices here I am fully behind. Like full-blown political ad “I’m Paul Panisko and I approve this message” like Cheesecake, Cinnamon Rolls, and Red Velvet cake, yes please.

But let’s get back on track, I don’t want to talk about the mouth-watering treats you look forward to every year, I want to talk about the stuff that you avoid at all costs, that particular tray of not-so-delectables that you will not even sit next to.
