Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is quickly approaching. It is getting cold outside, and everyone is looking for something good to eat. Especially this year during COVID, that extra treat may bring a little extra joy to the season.

In 2019, Christmas felt a lot different in than it does this year. We took a look at Google Trends to see what every state was searching for the most.

It became quickly obvious that Cakes were the top treat as it was the favorite in 20 states.

Candy and Cookies came in a close second and third with 12 states favoring some sort of candy and 10 states favoring some sort of cookie.

A few states stood out with some interesting choices. For example, North Dakota loves peanut butter blossoms.

The Carolinas (both North and South) love fruitcake. Who would have thought that people actually liked fruit cake?

Are there a bunch of vegans in Missouri? In the unlikely choice, they are searching for vegan Christmas cookies.
