These 7 Iconic Foods In Connecticut Will Have Your Mouth Watering

Connecticut definitely has iconic foods. I didn’t realize this myself until I decided to go to college in Iowa, where people just didn’t seem to know what I was talking about. But they also say pop instead of soda, so I shouldn’t have been surprised. Trying to find decent clams outside of New England is pretty much impossible, nobody knows what birch soda is, and the ice cream is nothing compared to Tulmeadow’s. If you’re new to Connecticut, I would definitely recommend you conquer this list. But make sure your taste buds are ready, because these really pack a flavor punch!

Well, I definitely want to eat some of all these items now! Are there any other foods you think are iconic to the state of Connecticut? I’d love to know!
