Data reveals Arkansas’ most popular Christmas cookie

(Source: Google Trends)

It looks like Arkansans this year prefer a little bit of everything in their Christmas cookies.

In its annual holiday data release, search giant Google unveiled a map of uniquely searched Christmas cookies by state which shows that kitchen sink Christmas cookies are the new favorite in Arkansas.

Last year’s map showed sugar cookies as the the most Google-searched variety in The Natural State.

Kitchen sink cookies are typically sweet and salty thanks to the addition of pretzels, chocolate chips, potato chips, toffee, M&M’s candies and anything else the cook favors.

According to the data, Arkansas is the only state that favors kitchen sink cookies for Christmas. Other states with unique favorites include Texas (Springerle), Hawaii (Ube), Iowa (spritz) and Massachusetts (Linzer).

The most popular cookies in the country this year are gingerbread cookies, Italian Christmas cookies, peanut butter blossoms and sugar cookies.
