Worldwide, the Dallas Cowboys are probably Texas' biggest brand.

NFL is the biggest sport in USA, but it hasnt reached major popularity outside of USA and Canada.

If we use pure numbers, Minute Maid, Lays, etc are bigger Texas brands.

I’ll stick to Whataburger. Tito’s is still a fairly good vodka, while Whataburger is simply fast food.

Shipley's is an actual donut (and proudly a Houston institution). Not sugary and bagel chewy like KrispyKreme or Dunkin. I love the honeycomb texture inside after a bite!

Shipley*. And Krispy Kreme isn’t that bad in my opinion. The 3 each have completely different textures. Dunkin being the fakest of the 3 (Dunkin doesn’t even make theirs in house).

While they’re going nationwide, Shipley has also been trying to expand to smoothies and larger coffee line, which I’m all for. I’m tired of Starbucks and Dunkin being the two only national wide spread coffeehouses.

The corona virus is probably going to slow their rapid expansion phase, but so far it left with 2 Colorado shops and 2 Florida. Which is good for me since I frequent both.

I was talking visibility. You think say a villager in remote Afghanistan or Nepal is more likely to have heard of the Dallas Cowboys or Minute Maid? I don't know.

It is very likely they might not have heard oof American football AT ALL. The rest of the world plays and is passionate about football - what Americans call soccer. No one outside the U.S. (and maybe Canada) knows or cares about the NFL, let alone any particular team. In your hypothetical: Minute Maid by a huge margin.

Even in USA, you are more likely to run into a Minute Maid bottle or a bag of Lays chips than you are to see a Cowboys hat. Just imagine how different this out be elsewhere. Seems like someone never left Texas.

Texaco??? Although when was the last time it was actually a Texas company with all the mergers.

Texas Roadhouse also seems to be expanding nicely, but it's not actually from Texas either.
