Quintessential Virginia

I'll be in Virginia on vacation soon. I've already asked about good restaurants in the VA Bearch area and thanks for the tips.

This question is more about whether there are things that are unique to VA that I really should try? For example, I know if I go to Memphis, I've got to try the barbeque, and if I go to New Orleans, I should try the beignets. But other than peanuts, what should I try to find in VA that is a specialty or a local custom?

Reference can be made to specific restaurants but I'm really just looking for stuff I should try if I see on a menu that otherwise I might ignore.
