What foods live up to their reputation? What do you 'rave' about?

Following a little discussion about Chicago Dogs on a breakfast got me thinking about foods and products of which I am totally a fan, and that I think do live up to their reputation. Here are some that I can think of offhand:

Chicago Dogs (thank you, John E. for the inspiration!)
Chicago Italian Beef, dipped

New York style pizza
Chicago style pizza
Pimento Cheese

And one brand name product..Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk (love this stuff!).

Maybe it's because these things don't taste like anything else.
And other than the almond milk, I don't get to eat them often enough for the glow to wear off.

What 's your favorite thing to 'rave' about? Since moving to Georgia, I've made Chicago Dogs and Italian Beef for quite a few Southerners who had never tried them, or even heard of them. I always got good feedback, even a few raves!
