I came across this article which lists 'Must have foods you should try in each state".
Whether the dishes they list are the actual dishes each state is known for can be debated, but my question is, how many of these have you actually eaten on location ( in the actual state that it is known for).
Unfortunately , most are not vegetarian so that leaves me with few opportunities ( unfortunately, cause I've been to so many states with all my road trips).
I can only count 3
-Boiled Peanuts in Georgia ( from a road-side truck)
-Philly Cheese steak in PA ( Vegetarian version, of course, at Hip City Veg)
-Deep Dish Pizza in IL ( Lou Malnati's)
- I did have a baked potato at the Potato Museum in Idaho, just not loaded.
- Had Corn in Iowa, but it was more symbolic, as we knew we wanted to eat corn in Iowa, but it was a drive - through state, and all we had was a can of baby corn, which we had symbolically, just to say we ate corn in Iowa
- Had multiple huckleberry products in Montana, just not ice cream.
-Buffalo Cauliflower wings in NY, and Vegetarian Buffalo wings
A few other ive had, just not in the actual state , but that doesn't count.
