It's not something that's commonly served at every food place except in the South, where it originated!!!

lol....I guess if it's the original flavor with a sweetened label on it does...you can find those outside of the south and they do exist. if it's something like flavored then that's not sweet tea IMO. Sweet tea is the original flavor with sugar boiled into it. But why would you drink Nestea, DefaultAlias...when you live in Nashville and can get much better sweet tea than Nestea's? I dunno...Nestea's sweet tea to me doesn't compare to Lipton or any of those...I guess it depends on taste buds hehe. Btw...got a question...and i do not know this for sure or not...does Texas have sweet tea? I'd imagine East Texas has to have it. Oklahoma didn't when I was there last summer....but I'd imagine it does too in Eastern Oklahoma.

I don't usually order iced tea, so I don't know. I think it usually comes w/o sugar.

As a Virginian, I consider Marylanders our quirky next door neighbors who are kind of hung up about their southernness.

Even in Northern Virginia, I wouldn't hesitate to call it the South.

But a Maryland man told me once when I asked him if they all considered themselves Southern he said "We're neither duck nor pond".

I took that to mean they are neither northern nor southern.

My best guess, is maryland is at the southern end of the Mid Atlantic states so its both northern and southern.

Its a buffer state.

UNC-CH surveys reveal where the ‘real’ South lies

Kentucky is on this list :-) and I for one include Louisville even if it is not 100% Southern.

UNC-CH surveys reveal where the ‘real’ South lies

Thias study has been conducted for over a decade by UNC and is still being conducted.

I think this definantly labels Kentucky and Virginia as Southern states.

Nice Louisvilleslugger! I used this survey awhile back too. The numbers here I think make it clear that Missouri is Midwestern especially considering 197 people were questioned, roughly the same as Indiana, and only 5% more said they were Southern, compared to the 85% that said they weren't. Maryland interestingly seems to consider itself less southern than Delaware! 12% out of 25! That's kinda big for a state that most people claim was never Southern. Maryland being 19% out of 197 makes that a pretty small amount. Was also surprised that 12% of 16 D.C. people consider themselves Southern. i'm kinda surprised at how few West Virginians consider themselves Southern! That state seems to lean more toward the South to me. Oklahoma is roughly what I would've expected...50-50. i'm surprised so many Texans consider themselves southern...but I guess what else can you call a state that seceded from the Union and fought for the confederacy? And yes Kentucky and Virginia are Southern. I'd be interested to know why the few people in the Deep South states (excluding Florida) didn't consider themselves Southern...lol? That's like saying Minnesota is not Northern Only reason i could think is that they weren't natives to the states.

I found this on Wikipedia:

In addition, there are significant Roman Catholic populations along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and in most cities in the South (especially the port cities of New Orleans, Biloxi, Pensacola, and Mobile, which are not only urban but have a history as French colonies).

Maryland used to be the south but we've had so many transplants and like Virginia its changing. At least parts of the state. East of Chesapeake Bay and in southern Maryland we're clearly southern. Around DC and Baltimore its just suburbia. Western Maryland is more like West Virginia and Pennsylvania, and keep in mind West Virginia left Virginia because it didn't want to be in the Confederacy. No, I don't wish the South won the war but just a historical fact.

Texas is the South in the areas around Louisiana and Arkansas. Dallas and San Antonio are Southwestern. South Texas is basically part of Mexico.

Florida is just its own thing. I guess Jacksonville and Tallahhassee can count as Southern, but definitely not Miami, Tampa, Key West, or Orlando.

With the exception of Louisiana, Catholicism dominates none of them. FL's Catholic population is not historical, it's northern transplants. When we moved there in the 60s, the WHOLE state was one diocese! And all the priests were Irish missionaries (except for the ones from Cuba)
