Who’s hungry? I suppose that depends where in the United States you are. Every state has an official food – or a few. There are official state nuts, fruits, grains, pies, deserts and even… jellies.
Here are some of the more fun, odd and delicious of the official state foods:
State Snack Food: popcorn. Simple, clean fun Illinois – way to go!
State Pepper: Jalapeño. Don’t mess with Texas.
State Fruit: Tomato. So is that tomay-to or tomah-to in Tennessee?
- North Carolina
State Blue Berry: I’m not even going to spell this out for you.
State Snack Food: Jell-O.
- New York
State muffin: I’m just going to say it’s awesome that they have a state muffin. Oh, and it’s apple, if you couldn’t figure it out.
State doughnut: Boston cream (six points for originality, Massachusetts).
State Vegetable: Vidalia Sweet Onion. Someone ought to teach Georgia how to have a little fun.
State – actually, entire meal: barbecued pork, biscuits, sausages and gravy, grits, squash, are we full yet? And the State Vegetable (yes, vegetable): watermelon.
State Jelly: make that jellies - Mayhawhaw jelly and Louisiana sugar cane jelly.
And the apple wins for most popular State Fruit. Nothing like an American classic.
