A new list says every state has a dessert staple, and New Jersey's is cannoli.

BuzzFeed went through America state by state listing each's must-have dessert. Delaware has Strawberry Pretzel Salad, Florida has Key Lime Pie, Idaho has Potato Ice Cream, and Arkansas has something called Possum Pie, which I can't even get into.

But I guess it's no big shocker that cannoli is IT for residents of the Garden State. I bet there are some houses in New Jersey where if you showed up for a visit WITHOUT cannoli, you wouldn't be let in.

Really, though, who can resist that hard cannoli shell and sugary, whipped ricotta?

In case you were wondering, Pennsylvania's dessert staple, according to the list, is Shoofly Pie, and New York is cheesecake.
