They sell them in CA too, I usually see them at this Cheesesteak place but have seen them sold elsewhere too, like in convenience stores.



San Diego is probably known for Mexican food than anything else. Fish Tacos and CA's Burrito's I guess would be our specialty.

Now if only I can get them to supply in England! Whenever I'm visiting home, I ask my mom to buy lots of Tastykakes in advance so I can have my fix, lol.

In my current home in Kansas City it is obviously BBQ and Steaks.
You forgot Red Sox ice cream.

Tex-Mex (rumor has it the fajita was invented in Houston), soul/Southern food, BBQ (beef!), and perhaps surprisingly, Creole/Cajun/seafood due to proximity to the Gulf. With people moving in from around the world, we've got a little bit of everything now, but those are the quintessential foods found in this part of Texas.

Something seems to be unique to Nebraska is having cinnamon rolls with chili. At least many non-Nebraskan's I have met haven't done that combination.

Otherwise sweet corn, beef/steaks and Runza's.

And don't forget pork roll! It's not Philly, it's Trenton, but it's definitely regional.
