Regional snack foods

Emily | Nov 30, 2004 02:16 PM

Hello all,

I am researching an article about regional snack foods for families travelling across the country, and I thought people here might have some suggestions of items that I had not considered.

I look at these boards on a semi-regular basis, but have never posted before today. If it is not kosher for me to be asking for help with an article, I apologize. I have done quite a bit of research already, but there's no such thing as too much, research, right?

I'm mostly trying to find foods that can be picked up along the side of the road, at a gas station or maybe a small grocery store. I have found mostly candy, but am looking for really anything that adults and kids will both like. In any case, here is some of what I have so far, which might give you an idea of what I'm trying to find.

Green River Soda — Chicago
Valomilk — Kansas
Del’s Frozen Lemonade — Rhode Island
Abba Zabba — California
Mike Sells potato chips — Ohio
Crack seed — Hawaii
Water ice — Philly
Marionberries/Olaliberries — Pacific Northwest
Moon pies — South
Chick-a-stick — Texas
Coconut Patties — Florida
Boiled peanuts — South
Violet Gum — New York
Reindeer hot dog — Alaska

Thanks for any and all help!
