Eating My Way Across the Country

Tom's working on a post about how we're getting in shape before we put our bodies through the ringer on our trip.

But, on the COMPLETE other end of the spectrum, I saw this article today and wanted to post quickly about it.

Delish: All-American Eats: Must-Try Foods From the 50 States

This got me really excited about our road trip, because I usually make decisions with my stomach and because I take this kind of an article as a challenge. Where will we be driving through and what are the "must-try" foods? (I didn't include California, since we live here and because I eat the "must-try" California avocado almost daily.)

Arizona: Prickly Pear Margaritas
Utah: Pastrami Burger

Colorado: Denver Omelet

Kansas: Sunflower Seeds & Oil

Missouri: Springfield Cashew Chicken
Illinois: Horseshoe Sandwich

Indiana: Sugar Cream Pie
Ohio: Cincinnati Chili

New York: Bagels
Connecticut: Clam Chowder

New Jersey: Saltwater Taffy
Pennsylvanie: Hoagies & Cheesesteaks

Delaware: Crab Dip
Maryland: Crab Cakes

Virginia: Virginia Ham
North Carolina: Country Ham

This all looks SO tasty (except, really, Kansas?!?! Sunflower seeds? That's what you bring to the table?) Some of the others on the list look so good it makes me want to make a serious detour...Louisiana Gumbo, Rhode Island Johnny Cakes, Iowa Pork Tenderloin Sandwich....yum! 

What other foods would you add to this list?
