The Craziest Food From Every Single US State

Get Started

Every one of these is insane.

America is as much a confederation of loosely-connected cultures as it is a country with a strong national identity. This isn't in any way a bad thing, it's just to say we're a deeply varied people. Heck, each state even has its own unique culture (and if you don't believe us, try telling a North Carolinan their state isn't any different from South Carolina and be ready to duck when they throw something at you). And with those unique cultures, of course come unique regional foods. Every state has one! Crab dip in Maryland, Virginia ham, Maine lobster, unique fried chicken and/or chili varieties in about ten different states...there's a lot of good foods out there that each state can claim as their own.

Some foods, though, are a little... well, different. And they're pretty unique too. Even through the power of globalization, some of us haven't had any of the foods available in these other states! Have you? Some of the foods in this list are a little strange, but the people who live in these states swear they're good. Do you know what a chokecherry is? Would you eat a big slice of scrapple for lunch? Whether you love or hate these weird foods, they've definitely made a cultural impact! Get Started
