Do You Live in a S'mores-Loving State? Check Out This Map
Sure, you got your fruit pies and crumbles, your ice cream and frozen pops, but there’s a solid argument to be made that no other dessert captures the taste of summer quite like s’mores. With the milk chocolate made melty by the toasted-to-taste marshmallow and smooshed between two graham crackers, s’mores evoke the snap of the campfire, the nighttime cool after a hot summer day, songs under the stars, and the comfort of family and good friends.
Yeah, we all love s’mores, but some states apparently love them — or at least love to tweet about them — more than others.
In honor of National S’mores Day, which happens to be today, Twitter’s Data Analytics team has compiled a list of the top s’mores-lovin’ states of the summer, based on which of them tweeted about s’mores the most from May 1 to July 31, 2015. (Check out the cool companion heat map above.)
If you live in Vermont, West Virginia, Maine or Wyoming, congratulations — you’ve got bragging rights to first, second, third and fourth place, respectively. (And you thought Vermont was only about maple syrup.)
Idaho, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Minnesota, Indiana and Kentucky, kudos to you, too — you round out the top 10, clocking in at five through 10.
