Missy hon, I always have limited time to reply during the workweek, but at least try and read the threads when I can....and on this one I was wondering how long it would be before someone mentioned that wonderful little legume! Good mention!

A very good indicator of being in the South is if eating black-eyed peas on New Years Day (at the least!) is a generally recognized custom among natives.

I don't want to start another Southern thread, but I think it would be more interesting to find things that are common only in regional areas of the south that are not seen as blanket "southern" or part of the common culture.

That's a noble idea...but as you can see, there are a lot of misconceptions out there when it comes to the south.
Usually the negative ones like the KKK, racism and politics. Some don't realize that it is 2009 and things changed down here like over 50 years ago. some just don't want to realize it.

Moonpies....created in Chattanooga...definitely southern.
Properly brewed sweet tea.

Sorry...the only thing on your list that is definitly southern is the sweet tea....I've seen and grew up in the north with everything else.
