It’s safe to assume that Santa Claus and his reindeer are big fans of Colorado.
The Centennial State, after all, bought the seventh highest amount of milk, cookies and carrots the week before Christmas.
That’s according to Ibotta, the shopping app that offers cash back on purchases at grocery stores and other retailers. The Denver-based app maker analyzed three years worth of consumer purchases of milk, cookies and carrots, in addition to things like candy canes and egg nog, to figure out which state had the most holiday spirit heading into the season.
Data scientists at Ibotta analyzed 5.1 million item-level receipts from 2015, 2016 and 2017 to come up with its rankings. The states with the top purchases made Santa’s nice list; while the lowest purchases ended up on the naughty list.
