It’s National Pancake Day and New Jersey’s Favorite Pancake Topping is…
Happy National Pancake Day! I’m guessing that you didn’t know that September 26th is National Pancake Day. Perhaps you did know, but do you know that this is the second Pancake Day of the year? There are two Pancake Days every year. The first was on February 21st or Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. There’s religious significance to that one. There’s also a Flapjack Day, but we won’t get into that right now.
Now we’ve learned all that is necessary about Pancake Day. So, let’s talk about pancake toppings. Pancake lovers are known for their creativity when it comes to toppings, and this year was no exception. OnlineCasinos.com set out to answer the big question on everyone’s plate, What’s the nation’s favorite pancake topping?
In New Jersey, it was a split decision. We had a tie between two toppings, butter and chocolate syrup. New York and Pennsylvania chose butter exclusively. You can’t argue that, even with the other toppings you’ve got to start with a pat or two of butter. I think I’m in that camp. While I may enjoy some fruit or maple syrup on occasion, butter is necessary for my pancake enjoyment.
It turns out that the classic choice of butter was the top pick for Americans, winning in 27 states. Following closely in second place were strawberries, the healthier option, chosen by seven states. Rounding out the top three was chocolate chips, endorsed by five states, including New Hampshire, North Dakota, and Arizona.
Yet, for some states, the abundance of pancake topping options made the decision-making process quite challenging. South Carolina witnessed a sweet showdown between chocolate chips, pecans/nuts, and whipped cream. Meanwhile, in Utah, residents found themselves in a tasty tangle, opting for three delectable choices: chocolate chips, peanut butter, and fruit.
In a twist that flipped tradition on its head, states like Kansas, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Wyoming went rogue, choosing unique toppings like peanut butter, chocolate syrup, and bacon.
But it’s not just about the toppings; it’s about the pancake love itself. The survey revealed that Mississippi holds the title for the most pancake-obsessed state, devouring pancakes an average of seven times a month. Utah and West Virginia follow closely, enjoying pancakes five times a month.
So, enjoy those carb cakes today and we’ll talk pancakes again in a few months.
