Sweet Martha’s Cookies are one of the first things that comes to mind for Minnesotans when they think of the State Fair. Those overflowing buckets are iconic and you can’t go three feet at the Fair without bumping into somebody who is holding one.
So that led to an experiment: how many people would be willing to give me a cookie from from their stash when I bombard them outside the booth? I decided to ask 10 random fairgoers of all ages. How Minnesota Nice are we when it comes to our beloved Sweet Martha’s Cookies?
