Credit Google for tracking everything we do and seemingly enjoy. A recent look at Google trends in Minnesota seems to have revealed what our most popular Christmas treat is...and it is a cookie. To be more specific, it's a peppermint kiss cookie. I don't know about that...I mean is it like a peanut butter blossom, but a peppermint kiss instead of a chocolate kiss in the middle? Or is it something else altogether. I went to the almighty Google-machine to figure out just what kind of cookie this is.

Before we get to the cookie result, according to Zippia.com who looked at the Google data and determined what Minnesota's most popular treat is, they also looked across the nation for any trends and found that both Carolina's seem to like fruitcake...ish.

Some other findings from Zippa as they dove into the data were:

  • Iowa was into Oreo balls
  • Wisconsin likes Andes Peppermints
  • South Dakota was all about the sugar cookies
  • North Dakota enjoys Peanut Butter Blossoms
  • Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana are all about the pudding

Now let's see what a peppermint kiss cookie looks like.

According to the Google-machine, it's what I thought it was going to be. It's a peppermint kiss on top of either a peppermint or sugar flavored cookie just like a peanut butter blossom.

To be honest, I don't think I've ever had one of these, but then again I'm not a peppermint person.
