New Jersey has one of the highest percentages of Italian Americans in the United States. Around 17.9% of New Jerseyans have Italian ancestry – only Connecticut (18.6%) and Rhode Island (19%) can top that. But, since they’re smaller states, the actual number of Italians is lower – 199,000 in Rhode Island versus over 1.5 million in New Jersey. Us Italians love Cannoli (most people love cannoli!), so it’s no surprise that you can find giant cannoli Christmas trees in the Garden State. If you’re curious, the New Jersey towns with the highest population of Italians include Toms River, Brick, and Middletown. If we’re talking percentages, Fairfield (a whopping 52.8%), Wood-Ridge, and Ocean Gate. But the giant cannoli trees, those can be found at Rudy’s Pastry Shop in Bloomfield.
