50 Comfort Foods For 50 States

I thought most of these were pretty accurate as far as what I've seen. Though I'm not sure I've eaten kugel, even though I'm from North Dakota. Not sure what I'd say the ND state comfort food would be, maybe hotdish.

If I were casting a vote for the comfort food of Hawaii,
I would vote for Spam Musubi (moo-sue-bee)
I make mine with a teriyaki sauce for added mositure,
the perfect in-hand-food!

Harrumph. It's all a point of perspective. I'm sure most of us feel our own home state is the best. I know I do.

They hit Michigan right on the head! I was born & raised there, and lived there for 40 years. I like whitefish just fine, but it certainly isn't representative of the State. When I go home, the first thing have to do is get a Coney! I talk to transplanted Michiganders all the time, and the one thing we all miss is coneys.

I lived in Michigan for from age 4 to age 22 and never heard of a Coney, except as associated with Coney dogs from Coney Island in New York. A fish fry would be more likely, imo.

Thank you to the OP for sharing the video. It was interesting, and of course subjective. A better title might have been 50 foods associated with 50 States ;). I would never consider Cedar plank salmon a "comfort food", and IMO nothing beats fresh from the shell Dungeness crab, not even Salmon, which I love, still don't consider it comfort food though. ;). Like GG said, and I paraphrase here, we all think our state is the best. ;)

Unfortunately, Coney's aren't a big thing in the U.P. Up here, it's the whitefish, Walleye, and pasties that steel the show, and the Cuhdagi sausage. In my home town, there is nothing quite as glorious though as the pizza pastie. Thing 9 inch pizza, with your favorite fillings and sauce, folded into a half circle and baked to perfection. Calzones aren't the same thing. Empenada's aren't like a pizza pastie either. They are amazing, and I haven't seem them anywhere else. Everyone in Michigan should have the chance to eat them. But I guess they couldn't be considered a comfort food. They are too exciting as an eating experience to be comfortable..

Real Michigan comfort foods, all made with home grown Michigan fruit - Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, Blueberry Pie. Nothing better on the planet!

When you consider that all the New England states would fit into California more than two times over, that's a very very big area for just one comfort food. My state is understandably very diverse in the culinary world. I suppose the author chose "fish taco's" as a safe bet for this huge beautiful place. It's called "The Golden State" for good reason, my only home sweet home.

Having grown up in Boston's other Little Italy, Monday was bean sandwiches for brown bag school lunches. Thursday was Calzone BB lunches. Only because Friday was no meat, just fish. Calzones usually had Italian cold cuts and cheeses, or leftover meatballs/sausages with a small amount of gravy from the night before supper. I have never been a fan of store bought Calzones because they are mostly bread with very little filling. When made at home, they bread dough is rolled out much thinner.

Chief, did you forget your cranberry crop? It can give Massachusetts a run for the money in total poundage.
