Which Holiday Treat Are You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

Chowing down on sweets is a given this time of year.

Between pies, sugar cookies and gingerbread houses, the opportunity for sugar highs are endless. But what if we told you that your dessert might be a bit more telling about your personality than you think?

Below, we're sharing which holiday treat you are based on your zodiac sign. Give it a read, and hop in the kitchen!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Gingerbread House

Is there any more of a look-at-me holiday treat than a gigantic gingerbread house? Aries love the spotlight and are natural born leaders. You have no problem standing out in a crowd, hence why you're this sharp, gigantic and tasty gingerbread house! You're tough on the outside, tougher on the inside, and always put up a good fight.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Warm Apple Pie

Nothing says fall and winter quite like a warm apple pie. As a Taurus, you're reliable, warm and have a nostalgic air about you. Like a classic warm apple pie, you're dependable and are associated with beautiful things, like a French apple tart!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Fruitcake

Gemini are known as the twins, which means you have two distinctive personalities, and the people around you aren't always sure what they're going to get… much like the infamously loved and loathed fruitcake. Some bites are delicious, others are bit dicey—but in true Gemini fashion, you always seem to get people talking.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Creme Brûlée

Ah cancer, you're the deliciously delectable creme brûlée. Much like this fancy French dessert, you have a tough shell but are very gooey (read: sensitive) on the inside. Creme brûlée can be difficult to create and can be a bit unpredictable if you try and make it yourself, which echoes your inconsistent tendencies.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Leos love attention, and is there a more eye-catching dessert than a rich piece of peppermint fudge? Dolled up for the season, peppermint chocolate fudge always leaves its mark. And because it's super rich, a little goes a long way, and there's plenty to go around–similar to your kind generosity.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Croquembouche

You're probably thinking, what the heck is croquembouche? Like most fancy desserts, it hails from France. It's incredibly technical and has to be constructed carefully with intense precision. Virgos are perfectionists and very mind-oriented—two skills you definitely need in order to put the lofty croquembouche together!


Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Classic Sugar Cookie

Libras are charming and undeniably sweet, much like the age-old classic sugar cookie that routinely pops up this time of year. Dressed up with pretty frosting, sugar cookies, like Libras, bring a smile to just about everyone's face.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Holiday Sticky Buns

Scorpios can be very intense. They like to question everything, but also aim to please. We love waking up on a lazy Sunday morning, chowing down on an intensely sweet holiday sticky bun, which reminds us of you, Scorpio. The more frosting, the better!


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Christmas Cracker

Not all treats have to be edible! Sagittariuses are the comedians of the zodiac, they love to make people laugh! Enter the Christmas cracker–a fun tradition where you pull the sides of a large candy looking thing, and a funny toy pops out, always providing the laughs and the life of the party, just like you.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan.19): Candy Canes

Hardworking and wickedly ambitious, Capricorns work tirelessly towards their lofty goals. Is there a holiday treat that works harder this time of year than candy canes? Easily the most notable treat of the season, these peppermint-flavored classics are definitely clocking in overtime, just like Caps.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Peanut Brittle

Peanut brittle is no doubt tough. It's a rather polarizing treat—people really love it or give it a hard pass—but like Aquarius, peanut brittle doesn't care what others think about them. Aquarians are hard workers, too, and it's no easy feat making peanut brittle perfect.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Meringue Cookies

Pisces are the oldest sign of the zodiac and the forever dreamers. Pisces are known for escaping reality, being sensitive and being very artsy. The meringue cookie is all of these things–whimsical, delicate and extremely intricate.



In the spirit of all the things holiday season, you've got to see THIS crazy Christmas tree trend.
