Yum Sugar has compiled a seven-question quiz asking readers to match Christmas foods with their country of origin. I thought I would breeze through this.
Not so much.
Take the quiz yourself and let’s compare scores. No cheating. No searching on the Web for the answers first. Take it straight up, like you’ve just been given a pop quiz the day before Christmas and you spent the previous night knocking back too many Frosty Noggins.
My score is after the jump.
I scored 4 out of 7. I missed the question about Mexican wedding cookies (whose “correct” answer is probably wrong anyway) and didn’t realize the rich history behind the French Yule log. The third one I missed is too embarrassing to mention. I really need to brush up on my Christmas pastry history.
