Misleading Food Names

Found this while grazing. Thought it was interesting.

List of misleading food names - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interesting article. The Michigan Coney Island hot dog is a real treat and people stand in line for one. It's a thick skinned hot dog topped with a chile that is made from organ meat. It is absolutely delicious and I really miss them.

The Michigan Boston Cooler is another terrific ice cream concoction but I still make those here in Vegas. Vanilla ice cream mixed with Vernors' Ginger ale - a totally different kind of ginger ale. Good stuff.
