Oh man, you two had to bring up lefse...Can it be Christmas again soon?! I just got a lefse craving. What do you put in yours? We do butter and sugar, sometimes cinnamon sugar. We also eat them with our Swedish Meatballs and lutefisk... I stuff the lefse with lutefisk, potatos and gravy so that I can't taste the lutefisk! ;-)

In Wa, Geoduck "gooey duck" is a specialty. Geoduck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

While at a festival in the Azores, I was introduced to barnacles. Yes the barnacles that are scraped off of ships. They are actually good and they were the first thing I would look for at any festival.

I think have seen Faygo somewhere...
North and South Carolina have Cheerwine.

Apparently these were all bred especially to be eaten at the festival!

They eat guinea pigs in Peru as well - also bred specifically for consumption, not as pets. I feel the same about bunnies - who eats pets?

Here's an article (with pics of prepared guinea pig or "cuy", be forwarned if you are squeamish about that) detailing the delicacy:

Scrapple - In Cincinnati, "southern Ohio" in general.

The wiki says: Scrapple is best known as a regional food of Delaware, South Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland.

But I saw this stuff when I was in Ohio too.
