Fried Pickles from Charlotte at the Penguin. They were even on the Food Network recently. Good stuff, and I am a northern transplant.

Cincinnati has goetta: a mixture of sausage, beef, pinhead oats, and spices smushed into a patty.

Then there's Cincinnati chili, a soupy concoction that has cocoa, cinnamon and allspice in it. No whole tomatoes. Spaghetti on the bottom, chili in the middle, cheese goes next, with optional beans and/or onions on top.

Then you take the chili, pop it over top of a steamed hot dog in a bun, and voila, you have a coney.

In Michigan we have Faygo, a type of cheap but addicting pop, and Vernor's... the best ginger-ale ever that will cure the build-up from post-dasal drip with just 2 tablespoons swalled slowly. I have occassionally seen Vernor's elsewhere.... it's good mixed with ice cream, instead of milk, to make a shake

Here in Northeast PA, we have "Old Forge Pizza," which is a square pizza made with a blend of cheeses that includes American cheese. Its the best pizza anywhere.

I lived in Detroit until I was 16 (I'm 34 now). I LOVED Faygo, especially the root beer and redpop. I remember the fat glass bottles which were 25 cents with the deposit. Some stores here carry it. A few stores also carry Vernor's around Charlotte and I have turned many people oto "Boston Coolers" (Vernor's/vanilla ice cream float). Unfortunately, Vernor's taste changed dramatically in 1991 when the FDA banned Stevia (an all natural sweetener which was used since its invention) and began using high fructose corn syrup. Hires root beer also used it.

They don't taste like raw meat but they are possibly the nastiest thing I ever ate before I knew what it was. They were fried. Everything taste good fried, right? Un-unh. I went with a large group to some little podunk place outside of Dallas that was supposed to be famous for BBQ. They brought out all these plates of appetizers and I had eaten 2 or 3 before I bothered to ask what they were (because they were weird). Once I knew I nearly gagged. Never again.

And with the lefse there must be lutefisk. When I lived in New Mexico I had some delivered from Morey's in Motley, Mn. Expensive, but worth it.

I could never handle them either. My dad loves soft-shelled crab sandwiches. I think they look like a big spider sandwich.

When we got to AZ, we had to hit some Mexican restaurants. I kept seeing Menudo on the menu and finally asked, since I thought it was just a Latino boy band from the 80's. Well, apparently it's just intestines and innerds stew. Yeah, think I'll pass.

Another thing I keep seeing around here is beer with clamato juice. I can't imagine what that's like.

But I had hot chili-chocolate. It was surprisingly good.
