It looks like Minnesota and Wisconsin have one thing in common: residents of both states like peppermint, which is such a classic taste for this time of year.

In case you're curious, the organizers of this study looked at Google trends to see what we are snacking on most this time of year. They cross-referenced what they found there with forty favorite holiday snacks and this study was born.

Other classic Christmas favorites mentioned in the study include pudding, cheesecake and eggnog. Skittles were even mentioned as one of the favorite holiday treats. However, I am not so sure it can be classified as a holiday treat. Ha!

Speaking of Christmas, are you hoping for a snowy one this year? The National Weather Service of Duluth just laid out the possibility of us seeing one and they said there's a pretty good chance of it. Let is snow and let's eat!
