My mouth is watering from reading this thread.

Orange juice should be your beverage.

As you enter FL, one of the rest stops gives you a choice of o. juice or grapefruit juice, it's definitely welcoming ;-)

Maybe some kind of mango and/or pineapple salsa w/ avocado flavored corn chips, should be pretty easy to make (buy the c. chips). FIsh tacos w/ mango and/or pineapple salsa etc might work too, s/b simple to make. Fruit salad/ambrosia (1 cup mandarin oranges, 1 cup cut-up pineapple, 1 cup mini-marshmallows, 1 cup sour cream, coconut flakes etc (it's prob. not authentically Floridian but seems like it w/b tropical). Also, maybe some kind of coconut pie or cake or candy would be doable (and simple).

Yes, don't forget Florida is southern, too. Fried/smoked mullet, shrimp and grits, dried beans with a hamhock for flavor, biscuits, perch, seafood = scallops (bay), mullet, shrimp, blue crabs, local fish. IF u are traveling, some of the "country" food restaurants have examples. I had one of the best native seafood dinners in Ozello, fla, near Homassasa Springs - Peck's Port of Call restaurant. It's mid state on the west coast and a bit far for me to leave Tampa and go there often. But it was seafood like "old florida". It is an amazing ride out to the place, going thru low area on ocean. You almost give up and there it is !! The whole area in Citrus county has lots of outdoor activities, sites. Sorry for the departure on topic, but this thread made me think of it and now I'm hungry for it. All the best.

Not sure if carrot cake could be considered Floridian.

The only time we had key lime pie or carrot cake was when we came to Florida!!

OMG, I was going to say the same thing. That's an awesome book, I re-read it every once in a while.

Frogs' legs are another Florida food, believe it or not.

Another more modern option that incorporates the new ethnic influences around the state is Miami Spice by Steven Raichlen. It has some great recipes and educational/historic references to go along with.
