Pretty much everyone in the world loves Pumpkin Spice Lattes...except me, but that's beside the point.  These fall drinks are one of the many reasons people enjoy the fall weather. You might say that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are the unofficial symbol of autumn.

But out of the whole country, what state is the most obsessed with Pumpkin Spice Lattes?  Surprisingly (but not a total shock), South Dakota cracks the Top 20 lists along with some neighboring states.

  5. Montana
  6. Washington
  7. Maine

Pumpkin Spice Lattes seem to be the perfect beverage to enjoy when the temperatures drop. Six states in the entire country could care less about the favorite fall beverage.  Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Hawaii and Arkansas want nothing to do with Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Maybe the fact that all these states are located in the South has something to do with this data.

So where does South Dakota stand in this list?  The state of "Great Places" and "Great Faces" sits at #17.  Two other states that tied with South Dakota are Illinois and Rhode Island. Minnesota is not as much of a Pumpkin Spice Latte lover as some would think.  The "Land of 10,000 Lakes" only lands at #35 on the survey from Zippa.
