Justin boots. Of course! And the airlines - same Wolf brand chili, yep. All good ones you listed here.

Speaking of Corsicana, there's the Collin Street Bakery known for it famous world wide fruit cake. While it's well known I don't think it fits the criteria to be on this particular list although I'm sure that could be argued. Maybe because I don't like fruitcake.

Cave is on the list. Check. The rest are all proud brands but seem a step behind most on the list

Oh, good catch with SWA. They are national (international, even) now, but still have a good bit of Texas identity. Will always fly them when it is an option.

I can't think of anything to add to the list. If anything I would take a few off.
I think that Dr Pepper, Blue Bell, and Titos, in that order, represent the Texas products making it nationwide (although I'm not sure how popular Titos actually is outside of Texas?)
I think that Whataburger, Buc-ees, and HEB (again, in that order) represent the Texas brands that people are excited to check out when they come to Texas.
7-11 is probably even more popular than Dr Pepper, but I don't think most people associate with Texas. Truthfully, I had no idea it originated here! Pretty cool
Another thing I will add is that I find most of these products or brands to be overrated. I prefer Lowes to HEB. Whataburger isn't my favourite fast food (although that could change if they ever bring the A1 thick and hearty back). Lastly, I don't even really like Dr Pepper. I much prefer Coca Cola

El Fenix Tex-Mex restaurant is a DFW chain, not necessarily gourmet Mexican food but is iconic in Dallas. The original one is still in downtown Dallas.
