DanZero: Looks like the image maker can't even identify states correctly.

"OKAHOMA" ?


As well as "Massachussettes."

No Hot Brown/or Burgoo = FAIL.

Pasties for Michigan? Upper Peninsula only if you want them done right.

However since the only other state food is despair I guess I can condone it.
 
2011-01-14 03:42:00 PM  
I would like to see a map like this based on whatever food items are most exported out of state. You know, based on actual values.

Delaware crab puff? There's no Delaware Crab puff.

There is the Delaware Donut, tho. (and delaware punch)
 
2011-01-14 03:42:35 PM  
Oh, and can someone give me an easy okra recipie. I hear it is good stuff but we don't eat it up here. Never had it but can get it at the grocery store.
My votes are for salt beef from Newfoundland and New Brunswick (or anywhere) fiddleheads boiled quickly with vinegar or butter. Vinegar for me, likes me some brine.
 
2011-01-14 03:43:17 PM  
They got Utah right - Green Jell-O. Green Jell-O with carrots in it would have been even better.

Or fry sauce. Mmmmm.
 
2011-01-14 03:43:31 PM  

fenianfark: Missouri gets Toasted Ravioli.

Fair, but I would have also suggested Gooey Butter Cake or Pork Steaks.


Makes me want toasted ravioli now. mmmmmmmm! Or some paper-thin pizza.
 
2011-01-14 03:43:38 PM  

Old enough to know better: Apples? farking apples?!


For real. I wonder if this person has ever been west of Illinois.
 
2011-01-14 03:43:40 PM  

impaler: GaryPDX: Minnesota..lol. Fried Food on a Stick. Whatever that may be, could be road kill.

I was expecting lutefisk. Food on a stick is "state FAIR food," not "state food."


I would have gone with lutefisk as well.

Texas wins. As usual.

Rufus Lee King: A Famous Mortimer Production: Benne wafers? Wtf?

They go quite well with stewed 'possum, such as. A South Carolina favorite.

/The Iraq


Must be a regional thing. I've lived in the Upstate for 30 years and I can't remember ever hearing of them.
 
2011-01-14 03:43:59 PM  
I learned about chislic and knoeplah from this, so that was useful. Arkansas should have been fried dill pickles, and Tennessee should have been pinto beans and cornbread (East Tennessee, anyway). Tomatoes? Srsly? Take cornbread from Alabama and let them use white barbecue.

Coffee milk seems spot on for Rhode Island; nobody else has ever heard of it (kind like chislic, I guess).

I think frybread in Arizona is a rezz-only thing.
 
2011-01-14 03:44:03 PM  

bloobeary: There's no Delaware Crab puff.


Can there be a superhero called Delaware Crab Puff? Or a serial killer?

Either one works for me.
 
2011-01-14 03:44:38 PM  

Cyberluddite: I was unaware that a tropical item like Macadamia nuts is a big crop in Oregon. I assume this is suppose to be part of some "left coast, land of fruits and nuts" sort of joke, but come on, at least put a little effort into it.


Filberts!
 
2011-01-14 03:44:39 PM  

rickycal78: Really? Cheese for Wisconsin? C'mon, they at least could have tried something other than that tired old cliche. What about cranberries? We're the top cranberry producing state in the US last I checked, and haven't been the top dairy producer in a long time now.

Lazy article is lazy.


I would have settled for beer.

What? has the same number of calories as "food"

/Wisconsinite
//Mmmm... Beer...
 
2011-01-14 03:44:46 PM  

Sybarite: Well, at least they got Missouri right. Toasted ravioli was invented in St. Louis, and it's delicious.


fenianfark: Missouri gets Toasted Ravioli. Fair, but I would have also suggested Gooey Butter Cake or Pork Steaks.


I don't think any of those foods are popular outside of the St. Louis area. Especially the toasted ravioli.

Dynascape: Cincinnati Chili does not represent Ohio.

Just Cinci, and Skyline is farking gross.


Cincinnati chili = bean soup without the beans.

How dare you!? You take that back - take it back right now!

Eddy Gurge: Also, Missouri should be what they call "wet BBQ", not Kansas.


This.

Must be my in-laws who 10 years later still think I'm from Kansas despite me telling them 1000 times that I'm from KC, MO.

/Even got an ornament in Christmas '09 of a windmill with "Kansas" on it

North Dakota = Knoeplah

media.longnow.org

What a North Dakotan may look like
 
2011-01-14 03:45:22 PM  
Part of me feels like they gave up on the states that just produce the food they have a picture of. Either that or they really just don't have any interesting dishes.
 
2011-01-14 03:45:44 PM  
Apples? Seriously? Best seafood around all we get are Apples?

Are buffets a food, or a way of serving food? Fail.

Sucks to be Utah. All you're known for is having lime Jell-O.

Always thought fried food on a stick was Texas.


Knoeplah? Well at least I know where the Klingons colonized

Chislic - Right next to the Vulcans.
 
2011-01-14 03:45:48 PM  

degreeless: "Loose Meat Sandwiches" WTF??


Maid-Rites, a definite food staple for native Iowans.

Steamed, ground-up hamburger with ketchup and a pickle.
 
2011-01-14 03:45:56 PM  

Eddy Gurge: Also, Missouri should be what they call "wet BBQ", not Kansas.


YES.

Or pork tenderloin sandwiches. I MISS THOSE.

I was born in KC in 1965 and lived there until 1994. Do not recall ever seeing toasted ravioli, but of course things do change, though I go back and visit from time to time...

Kansas, I don't even.
 
2011-01-14 03:45:59 PM  
Can anyone tell me if a "wet burrito" is a Michigan-only thing? When I lived in GR these things were on the menu in every Mexican restaurant, and I have never seen them anywhere else in the 20 years since I left.
 
2011-01-14 03:46:05 PM  
At least the pasties in Michigan is right.
 
2011-01-14 03:46:13 PM  
So, before I click the link, is Indiana popcorn or fried pork tenderloins?
 
2011-01-14 03:46:13 PM  
I would think Alabama would be more watermelon than corn bread.

The Singing Bush: How dare you!? You take that back - take it back right now!


No way.

If I wanted my colon thoroughly cleansed Id rather eat White Castle.
 
2011-01-14 03:46:58 PM  

Andromeda: Also I've lived in Ohio for six years and have never had Cincinnati chili but that probably has something to do with never going further south than Akron before (kinda strange of me now that I think about it).


Then perhaps you might be more familiar with Barberton-style fried chicken. (pops)

Washington: Apples Awesome wines that rival the ones from Napa Valley

Or they could have made things a little erotic and posted a geoduck instead.

silverblues: Came here to say this. Also a quick survey of my friends revealed no one knew what jelly pie was.


Sounds more like a Kentucky delicacy/acquired taste.
 
2011-01-14 03:47:35 PM  
While Tennessee does grow lots of tasty Granger Tomatoes, it is hardly the state dish. If I wanted something unique to represent the state, I would have gone with apple stack cakes.
 
2011-01-14 03:47:52 PM  
I'm sure the people in Vermont are thrilled to see New Hampshire is Maple Syrup while they are stuck with Ben and Jerrys.

Hey, my kid just ate a can of pumpkin pie filling and spewed it into a pan. I'll call it chili!

There's an Upstate?? I thought our state ended at I-95??

2011-01-14 03:48:40 PM  
and Indiana is popcorn.
That makes sense since 90% of the world's popcorn is grown here.

Of course, white pie and tenderloins are delicious, too.
 
2011-01-14 03:48:40 PM  

Old enough to know better: Apples? farking apples?!


Oregon is better known for its hops than for its hazelnuts. But Washington is still best known for apples. And of course, both states are good at turning both into shiat you can drink.

Fried Chicken for Kentucky, what about Burgoo or Derby Pie, thats more Kentucky, Fried chicken is a southern thing.

binkyman: Oh, and can someone give me an easy okra recipie. I hear it is good stuff but we don't eat it up here. Never had it but can get it at the grocery store


Take some okra and cut it into slices.

Roll it in a mixture of corn meal, salt, pepper, and a little cayenne pepper. Fry it in a pan until it starts to brown.

Enjoy.

/Introduced my wife to fried okra, pickled beets and fried hominy

Yeah, like that ridiculous blob on Illinois.

Ever heard of Kentucky Fried Chicken. It is kinda famous.
 
2011-01-14 03:50:35 PM  
All I have to say:

Thank god they went with the omelet for Colorado.

Oysters anyone?

Yeah, I woulda settled for beer too, and in Wisconsin beer does qualify as food.

special20: toraque: ... On the other hand, WTF is chislic?

You mean you already knew what Knoephla was?


No, that was going to be question #2.
 
2011-01-14 03:50:54 PM  

BobNesta420: Pasties?

I didn't know you could eat those. Seems like you might get slapped if you tried to do that.


One is Pahsties and one is Paysties. And I can never remember which one you're supposed to eat. *shrug*

MI should have been sugar beets anyhow.
 
2011-01-14 03:51:11 PM  

Pwndululz: They got Utah right - Green Jell-O. Green Jell-O with carrots in it would have been even better.

Thats farking disgusting.

I found my great-grandmothers recipe box recently, its all that kind of shiat. Fish salad with jello, veggies with jello etc etc...

Awful, just awful.

Also, Arizona frybread? No. Chimichanga FTW.
