According to Zippia, the South Carolinians really like fruit cake. In Missouri, the favorite Christmas dessert is vegan Christmas cookies? Washington state prefers Skittles, which, LOL.
A whopping nine states turn to cheesecake for their holiday dessert each year. Pudding comes in second with four states choosing the specific liquidy dessert over others. Five states prefer some form of gingerbread sweets, like a cake or a gingerbread man, while 10 states are all for different types of cookies, ranging from classic chocolate chip to über festive peppermint kiss. And for some reason, Utah and Washington really like fruity candies during the holidays (read: Jolly Ranchers and Skittles, respectively). [Source]
