ManateeGag: so, for NJ, they only surveyed southern NJ?
theorellior: There definitely seems to be a ranch dressing corridor in the middle of the nation.
Disaster Transport: Mmmmm as a former Michigander that never purchased/ate bell peppers, I have to support the second item on the list: "Club Sandwich" .Also, the third item on the list for my new home, Illinois, is also a win: Skirt Steak./they couldn't combine "green bell pepper" and "bell pepper"?
Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: The popularity of ranch dressing coincides with the Jesus Belt. Apparently the bible commands us to eat seasoned mayonnaise.
Kevin72: Of course avocado for California. Avocado is everything.
Mikey1969: NVM, I get it now. There isn't a single "weird" thing on the farking list.
brantgoose: Mikey1969: NVM, I get it now. There isn't a single "weird" thing on the farking list.Really.And a list of the weirdest things people habitually eat in every state would be really interesting.I can suggest one I just mentioned in another thread: squirrel brains.That's weird. Haddock is not. Cheddar even less than not. Eating Cheddar is the anti-weird. It will turn you into a sweet little old lady if you eat too much. Or kill you. But it isn't weird.I have eaten some weird things:ostrich jerkyLabrador tea (well, not weird but rare)fiddle-heads (also not that weird unless you are from places where the ostrich fern does not grow)Daisies (I specifically ate some of these because of the book Please Do Not Eat the Daisies by the domestic humourist and critic, Helen Kerr. I wanted to see why the children were eating the daisies. The answer is simple: the green bits of Daisies are delicious. Not the yellow florets. They are sort of annoying.)Milk and Pepsi (Because of Laverne & Shirley, naturally. Not that weird. If you have had a Coke float, you can guess what milk and Pepsi is like. It's like a bowl of Coke float that has melted. Blah!)chicken hearts (the livers are way better, especially if breaded and fried in butter)All of these are slightly weird, but none of the things on that page are weird. Maybe peculiar. Peculiar to a certain place, that is, not peculiar in the sense of odd.
gnosis301: "It's the food that most distinguishes them from the rest of the pack."IOWA:blendedranch dressingdipperfectdeliciousI left crawfish and poboys for this?/ no, I left for a great job.// but still, none of Iowa's distinctive "foods" are actually food.
wingnut396: crawfishpo boy sandwichcatfishgumbooysterWe have famously corrupt politicians, a failing schools system, tea tards all over, and a shiatty public health care system. But fark it all, we got good food.
LucklessWonder: I moved from VA (Green Bell Peppers? WTF?) to DE (Blue Cheese? WTF?) Clearly I am the boringest stomach in the USA
