South Dakota takes dessert so seriously the state is one of only eight to actually have an official one - Kuchen.

The traditional German sweet dough cake with a fruit or custard filling was first brought over by immigrants in the 1880s.

Cheapism’s choice for the best place to enjoy Kuchen in South Dakota? Tyndall Bakery in Tyndall.

In Iowa, there is no official state dessert, but local love their Scotcheroos.

They’re made with Rice Krispie treats combined with peanut butter, sugar, and melted chocolate dotted and butterscotch chips.

Cheapism’s choice for the best place to enjoy Scotcheroos in Iowa? Palmer’s Deli and Market in West Des Moines, Urbandale, Kaleidoscope, and Des Moines.

Minnesota, like Iowa, has no official state dessert, but Dessert Bars are a big hit.

They’re made with everything from breakfast cereal to chocolate to peanut butter and even sweet corn.

Cheapism’s choice for the best place to Dessert Bars in Minnesota? Sarah Jane’s Bakery in Minneapolis.
